Re : thinking about ttc, and white coat HTN (long)

<t>Lisa, I am the person Kara referenced earlier. I finally got a chance to check e-mail, and she asked me to peak at your post (been a long time since I've been here, at least 8 weeks). <br/> <br/> I have chronic hypertension, and my first pregnancy went to 30 weeks until I had deliver my daughter ...

Re : What is it about 36 weeks???

<t>Thanks for all the well wishes, thoughts, etc. My blood pressure stayed up most of the day, even just laying around. I did get a 130's/80's in the evening, and now they are climbing again into the 150's/90's I figure it would have been fruitless to even go to my local clinic, so I opted not to. I...

What is it about 36 weeks???

<t>Is it me, or does it seem like 36 weeks seems to mark the start of PE troubles for women who make it to the third trimester. As I read posts, I read their signature blocks, and there are so many that have problems at 36 weeks and/or deliver at 36 weeks. <br/> <br/> I turned 36 weeks today . . . n...

Re : Side Effects of Clomid

<t>OHHH MAN. .. I totally relate!!! I was just aweful when I was on clomid. . . Emotional and super cranky. . . I wanted to rip off my head and crap down my own throat. . .

Re : BP high at home vs. low in clinic - still an issue

<t>Kara, I know that my cuff is the right size for my arm. It is an XL cuff and it actually fits better than the ones in the doctors office. The one's in the office are so wide in addition to being longer for a larger arm. My arm isn't very long from shoulder to elbow, so the office cuffs tend to sl...

Re : Gues what?

<t>I hear ya. . .on both points!!! I'm 32 weeks now and never thought I'd make it this far without PE. But, on the other hand, I delivered at 30 weeks last time, so I never got the "uncomfortableness" of pregnancy, and I'm starting to get that now!! Bending over is starting to become an issue, LOL!!...

BP high at home vs. low in clinic - still an issue

<t>Well, I'm going against doctor's orders and still testing my BP at home with my home machine. I still get higher readings than what they get in clinic. At home I'm getting 140-ish/96-ish. In clinic they are getting 130-ish/80-ish. They are convinced my machine is wrong, and I'm convinced they are...
