Re : Post Partum PE?

<t>Thank you everyone for your responses! I guess I didn't click 'subscribe to topic' so I didn't think anyone had ever responded:)<br/> I went in today for my bp check and it was 150/115 both times the nurse and OB checked. My OB told me to double the labetalol dose and come back in on Monday. She ...

Post Partum PE?

<t>Hi everyone! So I'm 11 days post partum. My bp was on the low end of high after delivery (140's/90's) so my OB asked me to continue to check it at home and come in last week for a bp check. I'd been checking it at home and consistently getting around 150/100. When I went in for my bp check last F...

Re : BP Spikes?

<t>Thanks everyone! Labor went smooth (only took 8 hours) and I only had to push through one contraction:) She was 6 lbs 2 ozs and 19 inches long. She's healthy and perfect and we are so in love! I am so happy that it's over and she is here!:)<br/> My bp's last night and today have still been a litt...

Re : BP Spikes?

Well at my appt this morning, my OB decided to induce today. She said that because I'm 37 weeks there's no reason to wait until I get worse. I'm hoping labor goes smoothly and baby girl is healthy! I will update on baby after she's born:)

Re : BP Spikes?

<t>So I'm getting ready to head to my appt in about an hour. I've been worrying all night. Do you think I should push for an earlier induction? I'm really dreading being on mag again during labor and with the way my bp is going, I'm afraid that's going to happen. Because it's trending up, wouldn't i...

Re : BP Spikes?

So I took my bp 2 hours later and it had dropped even more to 140/84. Then I just took it again (3 hours since my last reading) and it's back up to 151/98??? I'm just so confused how it can all over the place like that. Guess it's a good thing I have an appt tomorrow...

Re : BP Spikes?

<t>Well I retook it after an hour and it was 146/92 so closer to what it has been. So weird that it spikes like that for no apparent reason. I have a NST and an OB appt tomorrow so I will definitely talk to my OB about it. Although I'm assuming she won't really care as she didn't seem concerned when...

BP Spikes?

<t>I know I've read that spikes can be a precursor to consistently high bp's, but what if they seem like inaccurate readings? A couple weeks ago I had a spike of 132/110. After laying down for an hour it came down to 140's/90's. Since then I've been ranging from 130's-150's/80's-90's. The highest di...

Re : Induction date is set!

<t>aggie95mom - I know what you mean about using the word 'misbehave'. This is the same OB I had with my son. Due to our insurance changing when I was 32 weeks, I didn't start seeing her until then. Of course I hadn't had any problems until my first appt with her and my old OB and her were actually ...

Induction date is set!

<t>I had my 36 week OB appt today and she has scheduled my induction for August 16th (I'll be 38 W 6 D). She doesn't want me going past 39 weeks due to my CHTN. She did say that if I start to 'misbehave' before then, that it will be sooner. I'm just happy that everything is holding steady! My BP has...
