Re : How to take Blood Pressure

<t>quote:Originally posted by AmbersJourney<br/> <br/> Do not let them take your bp laying down! Like you saw in your experiment it lowers your pressures 20-30 points!

Re : New Here...

Welcome to the forums!

I definitely think you should call your dr about the pressures. Your weight gain and swelling are also common symptoms, which should be taken into account, imo.

Take care and keep us posted!

Re : weight gain

Weight gain is a symptom even if you're not visibly swollen. I had that in my first pregnancy. Actually there is swelling, but it can be distributed so evenly you can't really tell.

I'm sure it makes things easier, even though it's always a little scary to start preparing for the new arrival - but luckily in a good way. :)<br/> <br/> Karoliina<...

Re : 38 weeks and counting...

<t>I had the third appointment in a row today, but nothing new to report, really.<br/> <br/> My pressures were 150/90 there, and I told them my diastolic was at 99 yesterday, but the dr didn't want to up the meds at this point. I asked her about inducing, but she saw no reason for it for now. She sa...

Re : So it looks like we are having the baby tomorrow

Oh, how wonderful! Will it be the first April baby here, or is my pregnant brain mixing up dates... Anyway I'm so excited for you, and can't wait to read the birth story once you're able to share it!

Big hugs,
