Re : Need your advice on induction

<t>This whole thread came at the perfect time....<br/> <br/> I saw my ob/gyn yesterday, and she said that even if everything goes well and I don't develop any other problems, she'll still want to induce me at 39 weeks. I was pretty surprised by that -- I just expected that they'd let me go into labo...

Re : Mag Survey?

<t>After hearing other people's descriptions, magnesium and the Foley catheter are the two things that I am *really* not looking forward to.... ;-)<br/> <br/> I asked my ob/gyn about magnesium, and she said it's one of those meds that is used over and over because it works so well, even though there...

Re : 20 weeks and already HBP + protein

<t>Well, I made it to 28 weeks! Yea! :-) I saw my MFM yesterday for an ultrasound. They estimate the baby is 2.3 lbs. (~1036g). Everything looks great on ultrasound, and my BP's are staying low.<br/> <br/> The doctor I saw yesterday wasn't my regular MFM, but another doctor in the practice. It was t...

Re : Heart Rate skipping beats

<t>I've experienced something similar. Mine are actually caused by benign premature atrial contractions (PAC's) that I've had since my early 20's. They've gotten worse since pregnancy and my doc says that's due to increased blood flow, etc., but they're supposed to be harmless.<br/> <br/> Although, ...

Re : 20 weeks and already HBP + protein

<t>Thanks, ladies! :-)<br/> <br/> I'm happy to report that at 22 weeks, everything is going well. I went to my MFM on Monday for another ultrasound and the baby looks great! :-) BP is staying within the 115-140/65-80 range on Labetalol 200mg and Cardizem. I've had a little bit of leg swelling, but n...

Re : Can Labetalol make your nose bleed?

<t><br/> I started getting nosebleeds too -- never had them before pregnancy. One was so bad that it didn't stop for nearly 10 minutes! I'd been on labetalol for about 2 months before getting pregnant with no problems, so I chalked it up to the expected early changes in hormones, blood supply, etc. ...

20 weeks and already HBP + protein

<t>Hello everyone! I just wanted to step in and introduce myself, since I believe I’ll be spending time here for awhile.... I’m at 20 weeks right now, and I already have high blood pressure and 2 grams of protein in my urine. <br/> <br/> My HBP is chronic ââ‚Â...
