Re : Hi All

<t>Thanks to everyone for the information. I guess I just want to know what the future holds so that I can prepare myself. I am seeing a maternal fetal medicine doctor and have been since the pregnancy began because of the PE in the first pregnancy. She is OK with my blood pressures being 133/88 up ...

Hi All

<t>I just found out about a week and a half ago that I have gestational diabetes, didn't have it with the last pregnancy and have no risk factors for it. Also, I had preeclampsia with my last pregnancy, starting at 30 weeks gestation. I'm going to be 30 weeks along this coming Friday, March 9th, and...

Re : Desperate for answers

<t>I called L & D and they referred me to some place called an Angels Help Center. She told me to go lie down in the dark and in about an hour, take my BP again. It was 124/83. She said it's a good sign that it's not staying high, but she wanted me to call my OB first thing this morning. I am se...

Re : Desperate for answers

Hi Fiona and Julie,

My only option today is to go the ER and I'm not willing to do that. And I'm too scared to take my BP again. I'm even more scared now to take my BP again. I will call my doctor, but I don't think there will be any other option but to go to the ER.

Re : Desperate for answers

<t>Hi Fiona,<br/> <br/> My OB said she wanted by BP at 130/80 and if it wasn't that, she wanted me to call her asap. I was planning on calling tomorrow. No 24-hour urine or PE blood labs have been ordered. On my first appointment she checked my liver and kidney function and they were normal. My U/S ...

Desperate for answers

<t>Hi All,<br/> <br/> I've posted a couple times here before. I had PE with my first and only pregnancy (6 yrs. ago) and had high hopes that this pregnancy would be different. I was 17 weeks along as of this past Wednesday and my doctor put me on BP meds this past Friday. She also encouraged bed res...

Re : White coat HTN

<t>I personally believe in the theory of white coat HTN. When I was in the hospital with my son for a month, I was allowed to go home for a few hours. When I came back, my blood pressure was the lowest it had been since my admission. Additionally, my blood pressure is always high when it's taken, by...

Re : Hi, I'm a new member

<t>Thank you Julie. I am seeing the best high-risk pregnancy doctor I could find. It's such a relief to know that it's not PE yet. My doctor mentioned something about me being hypertensive at my first visit too(when my bp was 150/88). I'll take stress-induced hypertension over PE any day. I will kee...
