Re: Preeclampsia epidemic

I definitely think that part of the explosion of diagnoses is from the improvement in health care. If you think about it, we are 22 years past the year 1990 now, and a lot of medical progress has been made in that time. I agree, I have noticed many women who have PIH or preeclampsia lately, I know a...

Re: Geting steroid shots @ 27 weeks??

I was actually relieved to get the steroid shots at around 30 weeks (I don't remember exactly when I got them) because I knew it was a proactive step in growing my baby's lungs a bit more in case of an early delivery! I agree, most doctors would rather just get them and be safe. I didn't deliver unt...

Re: Just found out that we are expecting again.....I NEED HE

Also, at 5-6 weeks along you would not be developing a clinical case of preeclampsia, as pre-e develops after the 20th week when the fetus gets bigger and the placenta releases more hormones into the bloodstream. There are cases of high BP in early pregnancy that can be related to other potentially ...

Re: Just found out that we are expecting again.....I NEED HE

I completely agree, get those pressures checked AGAIN. If I got a reading of 110 diastolic I would be concerned even without being pregnant, but especially so while pregnant. Diastolic BP is generally of more significance than systolic, because diastolic remains more constant while systolic will flu...

Re: A question about Blood Pressure

Well, 134/80 is not bad at all. In fact, for me that would be considered very normal, as mine has always run about that normally. However SOME women run low, like 90/60 and so 130s/80s would be a huge jump for them. I had labetalol during my pregnancy, very large doses of it, and ehhhh it helped may...

Re: What gestation of birth requires no NICU time?

I can't speak for anyone else, but my daughter was born at 36 weeks exactly and didn't need any assistance. Because I had a c-section and was a month premature, they had the NICU in the operating room to check the baby to see if she needed some help. It is different for every baby. Girls tend to do ...

Re: Wedding ring doesn't fit today..

hand swelling is just one of those things, most pregnant women can't wear their wedding rings once their third trimester hit! My mom always wore hers on a chain, and she never had pre-e. I would pay more attention to your weight, your blood pressure, urine tests, etc. This can be a very normal pregg...
