Re : Should I be concerned?

<t>Around here any pain in the area you are describing is cause for concern and should be checked out immediately. If you can see your doctor today make an appointment otherwise, I would suggest going to L&D and having them check your bloodwork. This is something that you should not wait to tell...

Re : anyone had a baby early and what happened?

The steroids shots are probably the best things you can do to help the baby if you have to deliver very soon. Otherwise, follow your doctors advice whether it be bp meds, bedrest, etc. I hope that you still have many more weeks of pregnancy ahead of you!

Re : Hypertensive specific pregnancy

<t>I don't know but, I am willing to give you my thoughts. For me, the bp was a huge factor in the decision to deliver. The first one my bp was 180/120 and my MFM made the decision to try for induction. It was then determined that I had developed HELLP and so the induction was scratched and I delive...
