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. In the past, I was always about 120/80 before the baby and after all the PE problems subsided for many months I would randomly check it at home and it stayed in that area. Anytime at the doctor...

Weird -- Update since Peri appt

<t>I've been studying my medical records lately b/c we are thinking of having another child and I've been more interested in what happenned when, etc.<br/> I noticed in my chart that I never had elevated BP and protein at the same time and that on my labor and delivery sheet "toxemia - mild or sever...

Re : Visual Disturbances

<t>I always assumed it wasn't related b/c I didn't have preeclampsia classic symptoms until so much later. Also, the drops helped so much that I figured it couldn't have been from pressure in my head. BP was normal and even low for me until 37 weeks. I did have a lot of swelling in my ankles and fee...

Visual Disturbances

<t>I'm wondering what the visual disturbances are like that are related to PE? In my first pregnancy, I had blurred vision beginning in the first trimester -- I mean really blurred!!! I had to stop wearing contacts and went to glasses which didn't help. I was told that pregnancy hormones sometimes c...

Re : OB and peri

<t>See, that's how I feel too -- it's very frustrating b/c there really are no "high risk" specialists in my area. The receptionists all say -- oh yes, all of our doctors can handle "high risk" cases, but when it comes down to it, if one doc delivers a baby a day, that's 365 babies a year. (give or ...

How often do you check your BP?

<t>I know that I am going to be a complete lunatic in my next pregnancy with checking BP's. How often do you guys check yours? How often did your doctors recommend you check it?<br/> <br/> Another off topic question -- do any of you work outside the home during a second possibly PE pregnancy. I know...

Re : introduction and info request

<t>Believe me, you are not alone in your fear for having another child. We had always planned on 2, and even after the scary stuff that happenned with #1, we never even discussed NOT having #2. But, now that my son is 2 and 1/2, we're at the time that we had "planned" on having another one and the f...

OB and peri

<t>For those of you who had a peri and an OB, how did that work? I have a consult with a peri next month as my husband and I are wanting to have another child and I am really nervous about it. There is only one peri in my town and he's only here twice a month (he comes in from Austin -- about 2 hour...
