Re: It's different when you know what could be coming

I'm sorry for the delayed update. I wanted to let you all know we made it! Baby Holly was born on 4/4/14 at 14:14. Although my doc watched me closely for preeclampsia, I did not develop it this time around, my second pregnancy. I was hypertensive throughout the entire pregnancy and was induced a cou...

Re: chronic hypertension

I was about 250, so under the 300 threshold. Since then, my dip sticks have been clean at regularly appointment. I'm ...

Re: It's different when you know what could be coming

Wanted to give an update. I saw the new guidelines that just came out on preeclampsia treatment and was relieved to see my doc has pretty much been following them to a T. I talked with him extensively during my last appointment, and he had seen them and is following them. So, I'm feeling a little be...

It's different when you know what could be coming

Returning here after a long hiatus and looking for some support/advice. I'm the mom of a healthy 5-year-old girl, induced at 36 weeks due to PE. We're pregnant again and I'm at 21 weeks. Excited to be this far along but also waiting for the other shoe to drop. I was living in a large city when I had...
