Re : How high did YOU go???

<t>I landed in the ER one morning and after laying down for 1/2 hour my BP was 198/112. I have no idea what it was when I first came into the ER but it was apparantly high enough for the nurse to triage me in front of other patients and make me use a wheelchair. <br/> <br/> The doc at the ER sent me...

Re : How long did your BP stay elevated?

<t>After delivery my BP was normal (even low) for about 5 days. No meds or anything. I went home and my pressures shot up to even higher than they were before delivery. I went back on the meds and my pressure stayed high for about two weeks. Then they slowly dropped, I weaned off the meds again, and...

Re : What happens if you start preterm labor?

I went into labor at 36w3d and they sent me over to the hospital for a c-section a few hours after the first contractions started. I was scheduled for a c-section at 39 weeks but the doc had already told me he would be very surprised had I made it that far.

Re : Intense Itching sign of PE???

My swelling always made my hands and feet feel itchy. I don't know about itching all over though. I think it can have something to do with the liver.

Re : Headaches

I was given a fiorcet RX by my OB and in the hospital they gave me percocets. Both seemed to help somewhat. Not total relief for me but cutting the headache by half would help tremendously!

Re : Does Exercise Help with P.E or make it Worse?

<t>I would ask your doc at your next appt about your numbers. What are your normal pre-pregnancy blood pressures?<br/> <br/> As far as excercise goes... I couldn't even sit up without popping 140s-150s/90s-100s so excercise was out of the question! Heck, sitting in a chair for two hours at a birthda...

Re : Are there warning signs?

<t>I had been feeling run down and tired. It was over the holidays and I would go and have dinner and hang out with family and end up with a raging headache and just be flat out exhausted and hungover feeling (nausea, headache, tired) the next day or two. I chalked most of it up to pregnancy until t...

Re : How many C-SECTIONS have you had?

I had three without any complications. I was told that 2-3 was the "max" range my OB thought was safe and that was a factor in how many kids I have.

Re : Induction at 36w3d- lung maturity?

My daughter was born 36w3d with no steroid shots and she was just fine. No need for breathing assistance and no NICU.

Good luck! I hope your induction goes smoothly for you.
