Re : Convinced i'm getting Pre-Eclampsia again!

Caryn, thank you for the HYPITAT link. It backs up my "gut" feeling but boy do my doctors HATE informed patients. Need to gear myself up to be confident, in control and clear on Thursday i.e. don't give in nod and burst into tears if they suggest going to 40 weeks or over!

Re : Back from L&D update...vent at bottom

<t>You are not a hypochondriac. With your history and a debilitating headache with high bp readings and gastric pain what would you say if it was one of us? You would say get thee to L&D pronto :) At least if you go and get checked over you will not be worried all day tomorrow and can concentrat...

Re : Convinced i'm getting Pre-Eclampsia again!

<t>klovav<br/> <br/> Glad you feel better :) This forum will help keep you sane and often give a lot of perspective as there are so many people so worse off, early onset etc. They are watching me closely the high readings seem to be spikes and it does come down again which i think is what is confusi...
