Perinatologist Questions (m)

<t>What do they do at a perinatologist appointment. My regular ob says that she will do a high definition ultrasound. He said that they would be checking the baby's size, growth, lungs, etc. This will be the first time that I have ever visited with a perinatologist, so I don't know what to expect. D...

dr's appt

<t>Let's say it wasn't great. My bp was high again 124/100. It hasn't dropped at all since doubling the dose of the Aldomet. I still have the headaches. I have a lot of swelling. Good news was no protein in the urine and my blood tests were good. I PASSED the Glucose test. Yeah! Because of the bp an...

Re : Aldomet

<t>I am on Aldomet. I started off at 250mg 3x's a day 17 weeks because my BP was skyrocketing. My BP was 148/108 at the time. The next time it was increased at 23 weeks to 500mg 2x's a day, an increase of 250mg a day. That didn't work at all, so the dr changed it at 24 weeks to 500mg 3x's a day, an ...

medicine increased again

<t>Called my dr on Friday because my home readings were at 120-138/94-104 while on 1000mg of Aldomet a day. The top number is ok, but the bottom number has been very tough to control. He just recently changed my medicine from 250mg 3 x's a day to 500mg 2 x's a day. Turns out that I need to have the ...

update

<t>I had my dr's appointment yesterday. My bp was still a little high, 144/92 while on 250mg of Aldomet 3x's a day. So he increased the Aldomet to 500mg 2 x's a day. He figured it would be hard for me to remember to take it a 4th time and he is right. I always have to set a reminder for me to take t...

Re : Questions

<t>No high risk ob. I live in a small town. When I got pregnant I talked with my primary care dr and I screened this dr as well. He has successfully treated patients with Pre-eclampsia and other problems. He was seeing me every week to two weeks up until about 4 weeks ago. That appointment went grea...

Re : Lurker who had PE with 1st child, have ??'s

<t>I checked with my insurance plan online and checked the websites listed above (Thanks!). There are 3 maternal fetal specialists in my area and it looks like the hospital would be Women's and Children's hospital in Buffalo. My insurance plan allows for no referral to an OB. I don't know if that ex...

Re : Lurker who had PE with 1st child, have ??'s

<t>Thanks for answering my post. We won't be trying till the end of summer/fall. I just didn't know how it worked with the referrals because I had always been military. Since my husband got out of the military, we havn't required any hospitalizations (thank goodness). I'll give my insurer a call and...

My husband was staioned overseas with the military and my daughter was born in the local hospital in Belgium (not a military hospital). There was a huge language barrier, I didn't speak french and they didn't ...
