Re : Why are women with pih not being put on bedrest?

<t>I am 18 weeks along now. <br/> It varies which reading is typically the lowest. I will definately ask my OB next month why the nurse takes my bp three times. I'm fairly certain he knows she is doing this. Last time, his office door was wide open and there was no way he couldn't have heard her tal...

Re : Why are women with pih not being put on bedrest?

<t>Since the top number was consistently in the 140's and the lower number sometimes into the 90's at the drs. office any idea why the nurse would take my bp three times and only chart the lowest reading? Legal liability perhaps? I suspect the nurse thinks I have "white coat syndrome", I've been goi...

Re : Why are women with pih not being put on bedrest?

<t>Laura,<br/> My OB hasn't discussed my bp with me yet as his nurse takes it three times and records the lowest reading. Although the lowest reading is never under the 80's.<br/> Which number is more important? Is there an old thread here explaining the importance of each number? I checked it at th...

Re : Why are women with pih not being put on bedrest?

<t>Fortunately, my first OB is retired. Hopefully, the one I currently have will keep a closer eye on my bp's this time around. All I can say is I have a leary feeling since they been in the 140+/80+ range and I'm only 17 weeks along. <br/> AimeeJane, WHAT is your friend going to do? Will her OB giv...

Why are women with pih not being put on bedrest?

<t>I've been reading through several of the messages posted on the boards. On one, I believe it was Deerheart (sp?) who mentioned that her dr. told her to continue working as an ER nurse. When I used to work at a local hospital (secretary) my OB told me to have my bp checked daily by employee health...

Re : have you had a normal pregnacy after Preeclampsia?

My first pregnancy resulted in preeclampsia. The next seven(yes!) pregnancies were fine. This current pregnancy my bp seems to be elevated, but we shall see what happens.

Re : new here with a ?

<t>I will ask him next month if I should be concerned about my bp. I used to work at the local hospital where the perinatalogists work and I really really don't like one of them. I'd prefer to stay with my own dr. as long as things don't go terribly wrong. I will be going for a level 2 ultrasound at...

Re : new here with a ?

<t>I have not seen a peri., I'm sure my OB would refer me to one if necessary. Yesterday the door to his office was open so I know he could hear everything the nurse said about retaking my bp and going with the lowest reading. She takes it three consecutive times in the same arm. <br/> I haven't dis...
