Re : PPPE at 8 weeks PP?

<t>Thanks. I took 200 mg of labetalol but I'm going to go ahead and go in. My mom will be over soon to watch the kids. I just hope the drs take it seriously. :/ You can definitely have it up to 12 weeks though. I thought I'd heard that but tried looking around online and could only find references t...

PPPE at 8 weeks PP?

<t>I had my baby 8 weeks ago. I had preeclampsia during pregnancy or well at least severely elevated BP. My BP did however come down after birth and I was able to totally wean off my labetalol. I've been off for at least a month. <br/> <br/> The last week I have not regularly taken my BP. The last s...

Low amniotic fluid again/possible induction

<t>My amniotic fluid had been low a few weeks ago at 6.8 but it had gone up. Last week it was like 10.8 but today it was 5.3. I could tell the huge difference myself on the US without the tech saying anything. There were just almost no signs of fluid around her and you couldn't even really get pics ...

Visual disturbances question

<t>I know. I've got tons of questions. But I have had increasing visual disturbances over the past week or so. I have lots of bright light floaters. However I've noticed that I have them even when my BP is not bad and the diastolic is in the 80's. I thought high BP caused this. Why would I have thes...

Babies at 36 and 37 weeks?

<t>I am not sure if this is the right forum to ask in or not. But I had my last child at 35 weeks. She did not breath at birth and required some kind of care and attention that I didn't see but involved something being stuck down her throat right after birth to help her breath. I know she had a CPAP...

How dangerous is it if you never have protein?

<t>If you never have protein in your urine that is. My ob seems sort of dismissive right now because I don't have protein in my urine. However I never did in my last pregnancy as well. Is it never technically preeclampsia unless you have protein in your urine? I am just wondering how worrying my hig...

Re : Article on induction at 37 weeks?

Unfortunately the link to the Lancet article didn't work. Anyone know where else I can get it?

I totally understand anon. I would rather than just induce early since the risk seems lower!

So when you say your BP is ?/?

<t>you mean while sitting up not reclining right? I am very frustrated that the hospital seems to insist on judging my BP based on only taking it when I am laying on my left or right side.<br/> <br/> I am also concerned that my OB is seemingly not too worried over my BP because I am not spilling pro...
