Placental Foxp3 expression in patients with preeclampsia

"The expression level of Foxp3 in the placental tissue of preeclampsia patients is significantly lower than that in normal pregnant women, suggesting that lowered Foxp3 expression decreases the immunosuppressive function and causes imbalance of immune tolerance between maternal-fetal to induce preec...

Re: depression/anxiety during preg, & preg htn disorders

Let's send that up to the Experts. This is a really grey area where individuals need to weigh risks and benefits. My reading of the data at this point suggests antidepressant use raises risk, but only a tiny bit - the odds ratio goes from 1.52 from 1.00 if you switch from SNRI to SSRI, for example: ...

depression/anxiety during preg, & preg htn disorders

"Our results suggest that the link between maternal chronic hypertension and depression/anxiety symptoms precedes pregnancy. In addition, prepregnancy history of depression/anxiety symptoms may be considered part of a risk profile for preterm preeclampsia." http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2558811...

Re: high BP episodes?

How many weeks are you? (I'm assuming you're pregnant! If not, I have different comments.) As pregnancy progresses we can get more "labile" - which mostly means our systems are struggling to maintain bp in a normal range. It's often a precursor to having it rise, and stay high. Sometimes it's just a...

Re: Deep breaths...

Terrified is *completely normal*. With my pregnancies after PE I didn't mention how I was pregnant to, like, anyone, unless I had to or it was after week 30 or so. It can feel very tentative for the whole time, and that's okay. I second the recommendation to consult with MFMs right away. You can fin...

Re: Any Los Angeles PE and HELLP syndrome survivors?

Welcome to the boards, Adriana; I am so sorry you lost your baby to this brutal disease. How has your recovery been going? This is an older thread, and I'm not sure if there's a Los Angeles walk scheduled yet for this year - the Promise Walk website doesn't have one listed yet: http://promisewalk.or...

Welcome Earthside to your little one!

Re: Postparteum eclampsia - SO SCARED to get pregnant again

Since you were so far postdates, I think the standard comment from the docs is usually that an induction at 39 weeks would probably allow you to avoid a reoccurrence. (Statistically speaking, of course.) Good and bad news: this syndrome doesn't really have a lot to do with your health going in - the...
