Re : Waiting for preeclampsia

<t>I'm happy about 143/83, but I am also getting down into the 130's which is below my baseline. What are the repercussions of going below the baseline. I know that Doc mentioned that since my placenta was used to the baseline numbers it was best to stay in the 140's. So, what are the repercussions ...

Re : Waiting for preeclampsia

<t>Wow, you all are amazing because you make me feel better. I finally talked to the nurse and she said doc is adding Labetatol to my already 90 MG of Procardia. Oh well!! <br/> <br/> I did ask the nurse to ask him when I should go to L&D, but she didn't get back to me on that part. I will ask a...

Re : Waiting for preeclampsia

<t>Thanks for responding. I totally agree. I think I would have depression and anxiety that would affect my blood pressure more. Plus, since I have severe pelvic, lower back, sciatica and hip pain, resting on my side is very difficult. Usually checking my blood pressure after lying on my side result...

Re : Waiting for preeclampsia

<t>The doctor told me not to worry because it's a mild preclampsia. He wants me to continue monitoring my bp and he does not want to up the meds.
