not sure if you remember me

<t>Hi - <br/> <br/> I posted about 3-4 weeks ago with questions and you were all so helpful. At about 27 weeks, my bp was a little high (130s/ 80s). My OB didn't have a large cuff, so readings were not that accurate. Did a 24 hour urine tes with resuls of 255. Baby is growing well - at 28w5d the per...

PVCs, swelling, and Pre-e?

<t>Hi All - <br/> <br/> I have posted a few times, I am the one with highish BP readings (130s /80s) but unreliable due to the wrong size cuff and only relaying a home monitor - the readings on that have been good lately around 128/78.

Re : 24 hour urine test results

<t>thanks so much for the replies. <br/> <br/> trish - if i do develop pre-e, i hope i can make it as far as you did.

24 hour urine test results

<t>Hi All - <br/> <br/> Looking for some insight from you experienced folks. My 24 hour urine test came back with a protein number of 255. That seems awfully close to the 300 cut-off to me.

Re : Some of your wisdom needed

<t>Thanks everyone - <br/> <br/> I definitely need a large cuff - my upper arm is 17" around. I did a bit of research and it seems that home monitors are not that reliable for pregnant women of size either. So, I feel like I have not had an accurate reading of my bp. For example, when I used my home...

Some of your wisdom needed

<t>Hi - I am so glad to have found you all.<br/> <br/> This is my 3rd pregnancy - the first 2 were uneventful with steady BPs of 120/70 and no protein ever.<br/> <br/> I am 26w5d pregnant now with a boy. I am very overweight and also about to turn 43. This time, my BPs have been pretty wacky since t...
