Re : 30 wk appt today...on bedrest

<t>You and I are bedrest buddies I guess. . . I got put on bedrest for the duration today too. . . .Lucky us. I'm glad to hear you don't have full-blown PE. I think they are just considering mine "superimposed pregnancy-induced hypertention" . . .and not preeclampsia yet. My 24 hour urine came back ...

Re : Very frustrated....and long.....UPDATE at bottom!

<t>I hear ya sista!! I see no problem in bringing your pressures to your appointment. Squeeky wheel gets the grease.<br/> <br/> I'm also having blood pressure issues and I'm one of the "chronic" girls. It's so funny how doctors all have different opinions. Because my chronic hypertension was control...

Re : Seriously annoyed with resident!!! - UPDATED AGAIN

<t>I should have clarified. . . the resdident IS at my high risk Perinatology Clinic!!!!! AND, I had also had her as a resident when I was pre-eclamptic in my previous pregnancy, so she knows my history. That's what makes her statement SOOOO obsurd!!! Furthermore, I'm a "black charted" patient becau...

Seriously annoyed with resident!!! - UPDATED AGAIN

<t>I guess the subject line says it all. I'm not even supposed to see residents, I'm supposed to see only perinatologists, so that in itself annoys me.<br/> <br/> My blood pressure has been high lately (but also labile). Yesterday I got a home reading (on a new automatic machine purchased from a hom...

Re : Your story - Slow onset / Fast onset of PE??

<t>Thanks for all your posts . . . I like to hear other people's experiences. It is amazing, isn't it, how every person progresses differently. Personally, I think I'm in the Pre- Pre-eclampsia stages now at 31 weeks. . . I think I'll had a repeat slow progression, but time will tell. See my "Seriou...

Re : Your story - Slow onset / Fast onset of PE??

<t>Hey Kara. . . I'm actually waiting for a call from the peri clinic. Yesterday the bp started creeping up into the upper 80's diastolic, and today they are in the 90's. My highest was this morning at 150/99, BUT. . . I'm hoping it is just because I'm a little under the weather. I think I have some...

Your story - Slow onset / Fast onset of PE??

<t>Just curious to hear your story of how your PE progressed. Was your onset slow and progressive, or was it bing-bang-boom you were realy sick??? <br/> <br/> With my daughter I lingered quite while before I got really ill. It started with high blood pressure, slow climb in urine protein & other...

Re : 24 hour urine and PE blood panel ????

<t>My luv. . .you aren't alone with the obsessing!!! I'm in the same boat as you right now with things trending toward PE and getting obsessive about it!!! I wish I had some good advice, but if I did, I'd give it to myself, LOL[:D]<br/> <br/> I'm not good with the lab values, so I'll let the others ...

Re : why me?

<t>I'm so sorry you are having to deal with such an emotional issue when you are supposed to be celebrating. I understand your mixed feelings. I have a family member who is a recovering alcoholic and had alcoholic hepatitis, which thankfully scared him into sobriety. I just wanted you to know you ar...

Re : Preemies above average heads?

<t>Funny Kara about DH's nickname growing up.. . . That's what we call Kayce. . . pumpkin head.<br/> <br/> At Kayce's year visit, her head was in the 97th percentile, height in the 50th, and weight at the 20th. I just wonder if it doesn't seem like their heads are bigger because their height and wei...
