Re: Hospital Bedrest?

Ob agreed to start me on the cervidil Monday. Dilates me to a 2 and I started having contractions. Started pitocin this morning but they had to take me off of it because baby's heart rate has been high. Hopefully restarting it at 5 am this morning. BP has been great so far.

Re: Hospital Bedrest?

I know about the study and I would certainly hope he does too. There seems to be a lot of doctors out there that still don't take this disease seriously. I put my foot down when he said he wanted me to go to 39 weeks. I had blood drawn Friday and am doing another 24 hr urine but I doubt anything is ...

Re: Hospital Bedrest?

I went in for my 37 week visit today and my doctor actually asked me if I was "just trying to get induced early." Wow. My head has been hurting but lately the pain in my upper abdomen and shoulder are worse. So he ordered more labs to be done over the weekend and hopefully he will be inducing Monday...

Re: Headaches first.. and for how long? plus visual stuff ?

That is exactly how my head feels and the vision thing is spot on. I've had the headache for what gels like a month now. With my first I had it for about two weeks and it was the only warning sign I had before everything went bad. I didn't have high BP or protein until I went into l&d and it was in ...

Re: The big baby thing? (Maybe paging Caryn?)

I'm wondering about this as well. They didn't realize I was preeclamptic with my first but told me I was measuring too small. Baby came out at 8 lbs 2 oz (although I DD go three days past my due date) and this one is measuring almost 2 weeks ahead.

Re: Hospital Bedrest?

I did go to the mfm's office and ask to see her. She is completely booked and they said all she could do was make a recommendation (which she already did) but that it's really all up to my ob. I also wouldn't think it is wise for an ob to just ignore a recommendations from a specialist. I did call m...

Re: Hospital Bedrest?

I will ask them about it tomorrow. I don't know any of this medical stuff, just that I'm getting different answers from different people. I'm not sure if the mfm sent anything to them in writing or not but I am ginger to be sure to get something. When they sent me home from l&d to double my meds and...

Re: Hospital Bedrest?

I think the comanaged thing is the problem. Honestly if I weren't so far along I would fire my ob in a heartbeat but it's like pulling teeth to get an appointment with the mfm here (too many high risk pregnancies, too few high risk doctors). They have been taking blood and said it was "fine." I did ...

Hospital Bedrest?

I've been addicted to these forums in my last trimester. Just wanted to thank everyone for their input and ask a couple of questions. I've been to l&d four different times in the past four weeks and this last time I was there less than two hours. They sent me home with a BP of 154/97 and told me to ...

Re: Borderline High BP and protein in Urine

Preeclampsia and eclampsia can occur with no warning sign. Did they tell you how Mich urine was present in her urine?
