I'm baaaack...

<t>I found out Christmas day that I am pregnant with #3. <br/> <br/> I'm not sure how many of you remember me: I was here this time two years ago when pregnant with #2. My first pregnancy, I had pre-e that was mismanaged with onset of around 35w and headaches and visual disturbances as well as prote...

Re : It was PIH

<t>My BP took 6 months to get down to normal-for-me after my pre-e pregnancy, and though I had no diagnosis with pregnancy #2, my BP remained elevated until after my DD was 8 months old! I was 130s/80s at that point, which was the highest it got during my 2nd pregnancy.<br/> <br/> I think the "unmas...

Re : Question about subsequent pregnancies/delivery

I had severe pre-e at delivery/post-partum with #1, with onset of PIH around 35w. I was allowed to go a week past due with #2 because I was completely asymptomatic and ended up pre-e free.

Re : Omigod!! (Update June 24 :)

CONGRATULATIONS!!! I'm thrilled for you.

I too would tell around 12w...I wonder if I'd be able to keep it under wraps that long with my 4th or more.

Re : Pre-eclampsia symptoms at 15 weeks ? too early?

<t>No offense taken! <br/> <br/> As I said, I'm not one of the "science gals", so I probably haven't--and wont'--explain it well, but developing pre-e before 20 weeks is extremely rare. That is not to say that it does not happen; we have posters on these boards who are examples of it, unfortunately....

Re : Pre-eclampsia symptoms at 15 weeks ? too early?

<t>Alison,<br/> Sorry you are dealing with this. Pre-e typically isn't diagnosed prior to 20 weeks. What may be happening is an unmasking of chronic hypertension--this is common during pregnancy and typically what docs diagnose when you see a BP rise before 20 weeks. Of course, CHT increases your ri...

Re : 25 pds at 2 yrs old?

My 40w pre-e baby (just shy of 8lbs at birth) was only 26 lbs at 2! Clothing label weights simply are a suggestion. It's just like adult clothes--a 6 is not a 6 everywhere, and everyone who is the same weight doesn't wear the same size. It just depends on build and body shape.

Re : Headache

<t>I had HORRIBLE migraines throughout the first and most of the 2nd tri with my first pregnancy. They lasted for days, and I threw up and could do nothing but lie around. I ended up getting Tylenol with coediene and then when that quit working a presrciption migraine medication. Ask your OB what me...
