underlying disorders check?

<t>I saw a MFM who didn't think it was necessary for me to be checked for any underlying disorders based on my history with the first baby, but I just think I would feel better if I had these run. Can I just go to a regular doctor to have things looked at? I have read the lists that you all have pos...

Re : Late onset PE - underlying disorders common?

<t>I'd actually like to know the answer to this one too. I had late onset PE. There were some earlier signs of it at 34 weeks (1+urine), but BP was normal until 37 weeks at which point there was no protein in the urine. I was not classic PE, and still don't know for sure that I had it. I do know tha...

Re : Coming off labetalol. Help what's going on?

<t>Just curious b/c your story is so similar to mine, did you have any BP problems in between the two pregnancies? Did you do anything differently for the second pregnancy? Were you tested for any underlying disorders?<br/> <br/> I ask b/c my first one was almost perfect until 36 weeks and induced a...

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

<t>I have the Omron automatic as well. It is Intellisense model HEM-711. Seems pretty accurate. Reads the same as another monitor we have in the house.<br/> <br/> Funny, we have 2 montiors b/c when my BP's started rising post partum last time, we laughed at the reading and said -- this thing is brok...

Re : Underlying disorders

<t>Maybe I'm one of those people who just gets it in the first pregnancy and there's no real rhyme or reason to it. I've known a few people in "real" life and they have gotten it once close to the end like me and then gone on to have successful 2nd pregnancies. One with twins even. Some doctors thin...

Re : Underlying disorders

<t>Always around 120/80 which in my teen years some nurse said was "perfect". Now I read that is actually "pre" hypertension. Here are the readings for the pregnancy:<br/> 7 weeks - 112/76<br/> 8 weeks - 114/78<br/> 13 weeks - 118/70 ( I freaked at that low reading and was told that pregnancy lowers...

Re : Underlying disorders

<t>Rechecked the records to find early onset clues, and didn't find anything:<br/> week 34 -- BP 116/76 Protein +1 on dipstick (no 24 hr)<br/> Week 36 -- BP 118/80 Protein +2 on dipstick (no 24 hr)<br/> Week 37 -- BP 138/90 Protein negative (put on modified bedrest -- working from home, etc.)<br/> W...

Re : Underlying disorders

<t>I just read through the working report, and it says that underlying disorders should be looked into for severe early on set pre eclampsia or HELLP syndrome. Late onset is apparently not usually related to an underlying disorder. They listed the following as possible factors: protein C resistance ...
