Re : If you have PE do you have to have Mag at delivery

<t>I had preeclampsia and was not put on mag during delivery. I went back and forth the weeks preceding delivery from having protein and not having it, and my BP was not too high either. I did do some bedrest there at the end, but my case may have been considered mild. I plan to ask my doctor why I ...

Re : Question about Anxiety

<t>I know it can't cause PE, but stress does contribute to high BP, right? I guess my point is, even if I don't have PE next time, high BP is dangerous too -- I'm wondering about taking something for anxiety just to help with the BP part. I know that it really would not prevent PE. <br/> I was just ...

Question about Anxiety

<t>I struggled with anxiety for years before becoming pregnant, but chose to get off of my anxiety meds during pregnancy. I always wondered if my high level of anxiety contributed to the PE. For the next pregnancy, I will ask my doc about whether I should take meds or not, but wondered if any of you...

post partum preeclampsia

<t>I'm one of the few who had my worst BP reading AFTER delivery. If anyone else has the same history, I'd like to hear how a competent doctor handled a subsequent pregnancy. What was the after care like? <br/> <br/> I was only in the hospital 3 days and released with BP 140/90 with no meds. I guess...

Re : Mild vs Severe?

Got to the doc's office and about 3 minutes after I sat down, they came out and told me he had a patient he had to go deliver. We've rescheduled for Monday.

Thanks for all of your advice!!! We'll keep you posted...

Re : Mild vs Severe?

<t>I think my case is a little weird -- I just went over everything, and here it is:<br/> Labs at 2 months : RBC - slight low, Hematocrit - slight low, MCV - slight low -- all others normal. I have no idea what the above means!<br/> 6/1/4 (34 weeks) Protein +1, BP 116/76<br/> 6/15/4 (36 weeks) Prote...

Re : Mild vs Severe?

<t>You know, I really don't know much on the labwork -- I went through all of that the other day and it looks like following delivery everything was well within the normal levels. A couple of counts were barely low, but my husband (the scientist) thought that was probably normal after delivering a b...

Re : Mild vs Severe?

<t>Before the baby got here (36 weeks), my readings were right around 140/90 (a little lower) with 1+ or 2+ protein (never did a 24 hr urine). At 38 weeks BP went up to 156/95 (or something close to that, it's not in front of me...) We delivered 2 days later.<br/> <br/> Post partum BP went up to 210...

Mild vs Severe?

I keep reading lots of different statistics about recurrent preeclampsia based on whether it was mild or severe. What are the criteria to be considered either mild or sever preeclampsia?
Thanks in advance!

Work question

<t>Just curious how many of you work outside the home in addition to the work of raising your families?<br/> <br/> I wondered how your employers were during bedrest and how all of that worked out. It's a long time to be out of work if you include bedrest in addition to your 6 weeks off for materniti...
