Re : How high did YOU go???

<t>Sarah, I tried Advil for a few months but it did so little that I just kind of gave up.

Re : Do you think stress maybe linked to PE

Nope, with my first, the only real stress was severe morning sickness.

I think about all the women who are pregnant in times of natural disasters, famine, wars, loss of family members, domestic violence, etc., and those populations don't have greater numbers of moms with pre-e.

Re : AFP Test

Mine was definitely an indicator - with DS I had a 1:23 risk with no other risk factors, and with DD it was 1:16. They are chromosomally perfect.

Re : If I hear another thing about salt...

I didn't get the salt thing a lot, but I had a DOCTOR in triage tell me that my blood pressure was elevated because of stress. Seriously?? The only stress I had was the recurrence of SEVERE PREECLAMPSIA!

I had trace protein for a while, and even did a baseline 24-hour, but really didn't know what it meant, and I was diagnosed with PIH w...

Re : for those who were put on bed rest

I was put on bedrest at 28ish weeks with #2, when I was diagnostic for PE but my protein was still mild. I think the bedrest did help my protein stay stable, but my BP just kept rising until delivery.
