34 Weeks Milestone!!!

<t>Only you ladies will understand this being a big deal. 34 weeks was the appointment last time around where they found protein in my urine. I had no idea anything was wrong, and wasn't seen again until 36 weeks when protein was +2. My BP was still okay, and then at 37 weeks my BP was up, and prote...

Re : Weight Loss Buddies: Week 1

<t>I'm so glad you guys are doing this again - I'm counting on you to keep it going at least a couple of months until I can join you. I hope to get back on the saddle at 6 weeks post partum. I will probably indulge just a little until then b/c I've had GD in this pregnancy - I think I deserve a few ...

Re : November preggy check in

<t>How many weeks? 34 Today<br/> <br/> Boy/Girl/Surprise? Girl<br/> <br/> How is the pregnancy going? It's good aside from the stress - we're in the homestretch now and I'm getting nervous! Also, I have GD and anemia. But, as of yet - no PE!<br/> <br/> BP? This week's average was 113/69. My starting...

Re : very very scary

<t>That happenned to me post partum - my BP got so high that I was on multiple meds - once my body starting recovering and didn't need the meds so much I was getting 80s/50s. I felt dizzy and weak and nauseous. Then I was weaned off of them a little at a time. It took 16 weeks, but probably could ha...

Re : A little scared about swelling

<t>i went ahead and called in to my doctor's office. I spoke to the nurse and she said that swelling even with pitting can be totally normal. She herself had it with 2 pregnancies (no PE). She said to keep an eye on my BP and to call back if the swelling starts looking severe or doesn't look better ...

At Tuesday's appointment my BP was great (still great today at home), no protein - baby measuring at 33 weeks, so right on track.<br/> <br/> This morning the swelling looked like it was total...

A little scared about swelling

<t>Well, I noticed today my ankles are just a little swollen. I'm 33 weeks. My ankles are not even swollen enough to see that they're swollen, but when I press around on them - there are a couple of places that sort of pit. Nothing major yet at all. But, is that considered pitting edema? I know some...
