Swelling - Serious?

<t>Hello ladies.<br/> <br/> I have a question. Oh, for my quick background, I am over 36 weeks pregnant, diagnosed with mild PE at 30 weeks, so Yay for getting this far. I have had high blood pressure issues for the last 6 weeks, which they are still trying to control with medicine. My protein usual...

Re : Possibly going home from hospital - long

<t>Hi everyone. I'm home. My dr spoke with my MFM and they both decided that they weren't providing anything for me that couldn't be provided at home, so they sent me home. I have an NST and appointment with the MFM on Thursday again but I'll be home at least until then. My dr again told me not to t...

Re : Possibly going home from hospital - long

<t>Thanks for all the input ladies. I'm doing ok. I'm still here, at least until I see the MFM dr tomorrow. They doubled the amount of aldomet I was taking, so my bps have come down a bit. Still not great - usually 140-something over 80-something, but definitely better than what they were. I'm feeli...

Possibly going home from hospital - long

<t>Hello all.<br/> <br/> I've been in the hospital for a week now for my high blood pressure issues. The last 24 hour urine that I did turned out 584 of protein, so I guess I have mild preeclampsia. <br/> <br/> Each day, I've seen a different dr. The office that I go to has 7 different drs and I get...

Blood Pressure Medication Question

<t>Hi all. As some of you may remember, I am currently in the hospital, dealing with mild preeclampsia. I have been here for about 5 days now, and they haven't sent me home because my blood pressure seems to be climbing. <br/> <br/> I am currently on 250 mg of aldomet twice a day, which I understand...

Re : dipstick vs 24 hour urinalysis

I have. A few times now actually. I usually am always negative on the dipsticks, but then when they do the 24, it comes back present. Not sure why, I guess the 24 hour is just a better test.

Re : Not sure what to do

<t>Hello all. Thanks again for the advice. I did call the dr and he had me come in. When I first got here, of course my bp was down, as it always seems to be in the hospital. But, the longer I was here, the higher it climbed. It got to 183/103 at one point, but then they switched arms so of course i...

Re : Not sure what to do

<t>Thank you guys so much for getting back to me right away. It definitely makes me feel better about calling. You're right. This is more important than feeling stupid. I took my bp again and it was 163/105, which is still higher than I would like, but it seems to be coming down. So, I'm going to wa...

Not sure what to do

<t>Hello all.<br/> <br/> I'm not sure what to do. I've been to L&D already 3 times this week. I was sent there once from my dr's office because my bp was up, another from an NST, again cause of my bp, and then last night we went back because an on-call physician told us to come in because I wasn...
