Re : Your bizarre symptoms that lead up to it all....

Waking up one morning and not being able to speak clearly because my lips were swollen. I looked in the mirror and my nose looked wider too. Took my bp and it was 190s/130s. Ended up in L&D where I was diagnosed with severe pe. I was 22 weeks.

Re : Confused

Your bp meds or the low bp if it is dropping below your normal bp can cause those sorts of problems. I had headache and blurred vision with one of the bp meds I took but, it went away within a few weeks.

Re : Driving By the Hospital

<t>I understand your feelings. I have a difficult time entering the hospital where I delivered my girls and the smell of any hospital brings back negative feelings. In my mind that hospital is the same to you and I as an intersection is to the person who was in a severe car accident. Your life chang...

Re : Severe Early Onset PE Ladies

My second, had high bp starting at 17 weeks, developed severe pe at 34 weeks and delivered my baby at 36 weeks. The last one was the worst of all. I...

Re : Pathology report on Placenta help?

<t>What the pathology report says to me is that you had a partial placental abruption, meaning that the placenta partially separated from the uterine wall and caused hemorrhaging inside the uterus. I don't know if abruptions are associated with blood clotting disorders but, I do know that they can b...

Re : Can stress really do this???

<t>It sounds like you are having a lot of symptoms. I had a lot of the same types of mental lapses that you are experiencing after I had my last baby. My bp was not regulated at the time and would get up to 200s/130s. I had problems with my short term memory as well as just plain mental fuzziness al...

Re : Thanks life, for kicking me in the behind.

<t>I am sorry that you are going through such a rough time in your life. Do you have family or anyone that can come and help you? I know how hard it is to go through a difficult pregnancy but, I can't imagine going through it without my spouse. I too pray that you will find peace and that God will b...
