Second Pregnancy Story Share

<t>I've been reading these boards for a couple of months now and noticed that one of the most common questions is "will I get it again?" That's still one of my questions!!! [:)] I wondered if we could start a thread that has people's stories of subsequent pregnancies after dealing with PE. Maybe a s...

Underlying disorders

<t>This may be a silly question, but did most of you already know about your underlying disorders before becoming pregnant, or possibly have symptoms?<br/> I ask b/c I had preeclampsia at 38 weeks and post partum (possibly PIH, but will never know for sure as no 24 hour urine was done). I did not ha...

Re : Help. Labetalol problems!

<t>I'm not a doctor, but my experience was very similar to yours. Ask your doctor (or doc on call) at what level you should go back to ER and do that. It may take a few days to get the correct dosage of the correct medicine. Just stay in contact with your doctor and let them know the reading. I was ...

Re : Weird -- Update since Peri appt

<t>Here's what the peri had to say:<br/> <br/> a) -- He feels that I had gestational hypertension, not PE -- we'll never know for sure b/c my doc did not do 24 urine test, but protein showed up for me in week 35 and 36, not 37 or 38, nor one week post partum. The peri knows that dipsticks are often ...

Re : I had my baby, now on labetalol, have ????

<t>Mine was fine in the hospital and then went up once I got home. They put me on Lebetalol 100mg 2x day at around 157/98 BP. Then the following day it was staying up at 170/100. They doubled the dose, but that evening it went up to around 180/100. When I called in with that pressure, they sent me t...

Non pregnant BP question

<t>I am considering another child after a bout with PE (mostly post partum)and have been tracking my BP's.
