Re: an introduction

Hi, You have definitely been through a lot. My heart goes out to you. Do they know what kind of infection caused the Guillian-Barre syndrome? Because of your unique case, and because your blood pressure issues and seizures occured after the Guillian-Barre syndrome, I can't help but think that this m...

Re: Intro- New here

Oh and I TOTALLY get the feeling that your pregnancy has just been robbed from you. I was looking forward to decorating the nursery, feeling contractions, going to the hospital, shopping for cute little outfits, packing my hospital bag, etc. I didn't get to do any of it. I was on bedrest from 32 wee...

Re: Intro- New here

Hi and welcome! Uggg, I know that being in the hospital is not fun. I was really lonely and bored during that time during my pregnancy. I agree with the other ladies though, that it really is the best place for you right now and the only place where you can get the kind of care and monitoring you ne...

Re: confusing bp's...labile?

I think the 24 hour urine would be a good idea. If nothing else, it will give you a baseline and set your mind at ease a little bit. Are your pressures still going up and down, or have they stabilized a little? How many times a day do you take it?

Re: confusing bp's...labile?

Because your blood and urine looked fine, you don't have pre-e. You may have PIH, but not pre-e, because you would need to have protein in the urine for that to be so. So whether or not you have PIH? I'm not a doctor, but I don't think so. I monitor my blood pressure several times a day (and I am no...

Re: BP reading of 178/110... go to ER or okay to wait till t

Georgia girl - That is great that your blood pressure is getting more under control. I remember that all I wanted to do was go home when I was in the hospital. But in hindsight, I probably should have stayed there because I was more disciplined about my bedrest there. When someone is bringing you al...

Re: BP reading of 178/110... go to ER or okay to wait till t

Georgia girl - I just saw this post and I wish I had seen it sooner. I am so glad they admitted you to the hospital and that you went there. Stress/anxiety/emotions can cause a temporary rise in blood pressure, but when it stays up like that it is a problem. Rest assured that you are in the best pos...
