Re: Scared

I just wanted to let you know I have been on BP meds at the start of this pregnancy and my last. I wouldn't say it prevented spikes or that the spikes meant anything either. I have had BP spikes several times this pregnancy. Sometimes they have been prior to my BP going up and staying up, thus getti...

Re: Low Amniotic fluid help ASAP please

Thanks. I am going in at 10 am tomorrow to get another check at the hospital. She didn't want me to go all the way until Tuesday to see me again. I hope I get one more week but I am nervous. I wouldn't want to push it if there is any risk to the baby because I know she can be born and be just fine n...

Low Amniotic fluid help ASAP please

Hi all. I am having a new problem, like I need more besides my HB issues. I was in for my NST today and failed. Went down for a BPP and they said my amniotic fluid was at a 5. My doctor said that if it were any lower she would deliver me now. I am 33 1/2 weeks as of today. She also said something ab...

Re: Side Effects from Steriod shots?

So no crazed mood swings? Today was rough and seemed far from normal. I had my second shot today and I am hoping it isn't even worse tomorrow. I don't remember this from my first, but I was really crazy already being stuck in the hospital and so early in my pregnancy. With my second I remember not s...

Re: Would you call?

glad you are calling in. I feel the same way though. I had to go to L&D yesterday and felt stupid about it. What usually makes me decide to is that i know if I didn't call or go in and something happened, I would regret it forever. Good luck, hope it is nothing!

Side Effects from Steriod shots?

Just wondering if any of you know what the side effects of the steriod shots are? I got one yesterday and get my second one today. I had them my last pregnancy, but all I remember is the not sleeping at all.

Re: Possibly delivering soon

Yes I do have hypertension outside of pregnancy, but not this bad usually. I take some medication, but much less than now. My BP did stay more stable today 145/90s most of the day. I did decide to go in and have an NST and baby was good. They gave me a steriod shot while I was there. Not sure that i...

Re: Explanation of Labile pressures?

Someone else is going to be able to explain this better, I think it is when your BPs start fluctuating a lot. This usually happens before BPs make a jump up. I would love to understand it better though. Good question.

Re: Possibly delivering soon

I have to echo Sam. I would head to L&D I am no doctor but 170/120 call in numbers seem very very high! Your numbers are high enough as it is especially on medication. Please keep us posted! Are you on bed rest with those numbers? I am suppose to be resting more, but that hasn't happened much. I ha...

Re: Possibly delivering soon

thanks ladies, I agree it seemed a little high and I am not sure why that was the number she picked. I do plan to head in to L&D tomorrow to get an NST and maybe have a urine test done. I haven't had any protein yet but my swelling and high BPs started after my last labs. She did tell me to take one...
