Re : Labetalol Side Effects

<t>I felt really dizzy when I started with Labetalol, but it got better in a day or two. After that I've mostly noticed the tingly scalp, but it's not very bad. However, for the past week or so I've had a lot of trouble breathing, even when I'm resting. I haven't been sure if it's because of the siz...

Re : borderline bp and high proteinuria

<t>I was the same in my first pregnancy. I did get a couple of BP readings a little over 140/90 (that's when I was admitted), but after that they were always taken in the hospital when I was lying down, and they were normal. My baseline is around 120/60. However, I had around 1,000 mg of protein alr...

In case you don't have a thread about this in the Pregnant Again section (I've yet to to go read there), I just wanted to say that I'm so very happy your dr is taking you seriously and has a really good plan for you, yay!

Keep us posted,

39 weeks and counting...

<t>Hm, I'm wondering if I really get to start another thread in a week titled "40 weeks and counting". Eek! :O<br/> <br/> No serious signs of going into labour anytime soon... I was having pretty painful contractions for hours yesterday am, but nothing much after that.<br/> <br/> We had friends over...

Re : Triage frustration UPDATE!

I'm glad to hear BP and protein are pretty stable, but I hope your dr will let you stay in the hospital based on your other symptoms, as they definitely sound serious to me!

Good luck and keep us posted!

Re : Possibly going home from hospital - long

<t>Just adding (((((hugs))))). I know how you feel. I was recently scolded by a nurse about taking my BP at home, too, and she sent me home saying "now stop monitoring that BP at home, it will only make you nervous". I was beyond annoyed!<br/> <br/> I have the same advice as the others, who have pos...

Re : New Here...

<t>I'm glad you got the meds, although unlike others I think that's a pretty high dosage to start with. My baseline is 120/60 and I was starting to get similar highs to yours (worst were around 165/100), and I was taking 100 mg twice a day at first. Then when my pressures started to go up again, the...
