Re : Unrelated to PE

<t>Thanks a lot. I'm gonna look into it. I'll probably let my ob know tomorrow when I go in to be induced(!). Hopefully this isn't what is causing the tachycardia but it's the only symptom my grandma ever had. I'll definitely be having it checked. I'll be updating again sometime after i get settled ...

Unrelated to PE

<t>I just spoke with my grandmother and she was telling me about a surgery she had a couple of weeks ago on her heart. I knew she had been having problems with her heart for quite some time now (30 years) and my mother just recently started to have problems. It presents itself with tachycardia. My g...

Re : Update

Thanks guys. She definitely keeps a smile on my face.
BTW, I'm so excited and nervous I'm almost counting the hours until it's time to leave for the hospital. I haven't been this bad since I was a kid on Christmas Eve. =)

Re : I'm hopeless

<t>You are absolutely amazing. My husband is a stay at home dad and he says he wants a litter of kids. I'm only on number 2 and have had no experience close to what you seem to have had and I'm terrified of being pregnant again. Somehow you manage to push forward. My step mom is already telling us n...

Re : saw my OB today for anxiety attack.....

<t>I definitely second what Fiona said about the 24hr. I would insist on one no matter what. Especially if you feel something is wrong. I've only shown a trace on one of my dipsticks and that was at 28 weeks. I went into L&D for mild edema and the 24hr came back at 610. That to me is enough to s...

Update

<t>I promised an update so here it goes. My doc said that as long as my bp's stay below 140/90 I will not be on mag during labor. She's going to be the duty doc for friday so she said she'll do what she can to make sure that my labor doesn't go 42 hours this time. Of course I understand that she doe...

Re : question about Mag during delivery

<t>Thanks so much for the information. I found some more information on the ACOG website. I think I understood it to say the same thing. In cases of severe preeclampsia, the risks to the mother not being on mag far outweigh the risks to the baby being on mag. I was wondering if that still held true ...
