Re: Help! I really dont know what to do :/

Search the archives about coca-cola colored urine, or cola colored urine to find out more. When Caryn was spilling 17,000mg of protein her urine looked like cola, I think she explains that it was because the kidney damage was so severe at that point that red blood cells were spilling through. We've ...

Re: 15 weeks, BP still going up.. :(

I really like this article
http://hyper.ahajournals.org/content/51/4/960.full
written by one of the members of our medical board, about the use of antihypertensive meds in pregnancy. It explains a lot about why docs do and don't prescribe meds. Let me know if you find anything helpful!

Re: 24 hour urine results

I wonder if your doctors are considering your numbers baseline proteinuria, since you're so early in gestation and not showing bp issues? So they won't be worried for you personally until you show higher degrees of proteinuria? We highlight the exceptions a lot around here, where protein appeared fi...

Re: strange question about BP.. and shoulder pain

Re: I lost my beautiful daughter 9/3/12

I'm so very sorry for your loss. Your daughter looks so happy with her baby, my heart breaks that she won't be able to raise him. PE and HELLP can be so tricky - many, many women have symptoms and warning signs and stay safely pregnant for weeks or more, while some women get horribly ill within days...
