Re : know of a good, reliable electronic bp cuff?

I also have an Omron that I purchased at Sam's Club. It is very reliable. I would highly recommend it.

How much labetalol do you take?

I'm just curious how much you take. How much can you take while pregnant? I just started on 200 mg twice a day.

Re : Advise on 3rd pregnancy

<t>I am in the exact situation that you are considering. I have two girls, born at 33 and 36 weeks. I had PE with both pregnancies and am pregnant with # 3. I currently have been diagnosed with PIH. Although, it can be hard physically and emotionally at times, it is well worth it. I would not have i...

Re : Transient Ischemic Attack

<t>Thanks for all of your advice. I did get in to see my OB this morning. My bp was 142/100. He did increase my labetalol to 200 mg twice a day. He is also having his staff see if they can get me in to see the peri any sooner. My OB also drew PIH labs today. Urine was ok, although I am starting to s...

Re : Transient Ischemic Attack

<t>Superstella,<br/> <br/> How long did it take you to get in to see the specialist? I had another attack last night. My appointment with the peri isn't for another two weeks and my appointment with my OBGYN isn't for about a week and a half. I have a phone call in to my OBGYNs office because I feel...

Transient Ischemic Attack

<t>I am 16 weeks pregnant and have been dealing with hypertension in this pregnancy since very early on (about 10 weeks pregnant). I went to the ER on Saturday night with high blood pressure 184/115 and numbness in my right arm. After being in the ER for a while and having a bunch of tests, EKG, CT ...

Re : Staysee's sister w/question

<t>I am glad to see that you have chosen a different doctor. I am shocked that your previous doc would not order a 24 hour urine. I have processed healthcare claims for 8 years now and I am sure that there would not have a problem having the test paid for by your insurance. The test is relatively in...

Re : Nervous about being pregnant again

<t>Thanks for all of your advice. I have already had two episodes of high bp (167/95 & 179/108). However, because my bp returns to normal at rest, my Dr. has recommended no bp meds at this time. Instead, I am cutting out every activity that is not necessary. This has helped so far. I have been t...

Nervous about being pregnant again

<t>This is my first time posting. I am about 6 weeks pregnant with my 3rd child. I had severe PE with my first (born @ 33 weeks via c-section) and mild PE with my 2nd (born @ 36 weeks via c-section) but had PIH with 2nd from about 17 weeks. We are really excited but also a little nervous about what ...
