Re : Worry wort. 23 Weeks BP 136/81!!

<t>Hello,<br/> <br/> I'm new here, too. Nice to meet you!<br/> <br/> What is your normal blood pressure? For example, for me 136/81 (bottom number) would be pretty high, because my baseline is around 120/60, but generally the prenatal staff doesn't worry about anything under 140/90. The top number i...

Re : Bye bye smooth pregnancy

I'm sorry to hear that. :( But hopefully the meds will help and there won't be other problems with this pregnancy! I think it's rather scary your BP can fluctuate as much in 24 hours as it did for you on Sunday and Monday. I had no idea.

Re : Pain

<t>Yes, I've had this round ligament pain in both pregnancies, and it's come about earlier this time. For me the pain is mostly in my groin and get worse if I walk a lot. At night I sleep with a big pillow between my knees, which helps some.<br/> <br/> I believe the lower back pain that I'm a little...

Re : PE and the child's temperament

Thanks, Blythe! I'll look into them later and will let you know if I can find something else, too. I just remember I've read about it, but not from where..

Re : Question about hospital bed rest

I didn't have PE headache, either, but I think it's usually "everywhere", meaning it's like a tight band around your skull. I get migraines, but they are always on the other side of my head and thus different.

Continue to keep us posted!

Re : Appt with peri today...

<t>Hello Mandy,<br/> <br/> As hard as it often seems, I also believe everything happens for a reason. Sometimes it's difficult to see or understand the reason, or at least it can take time.<br/> <br/> Wishing you and your family all the best, and of course a succesful pregnancy with the little drama...

Re : Ugh!!

Hello Becky,

No, I don't have GD, but just wanted to say I'm sorry you got these news - but also congratulations on low BP and other non-existent PE symptoms!

Re : Question about hospital bed rest

<t>Thanks for the update, Tammy. :)<br/> <br/> It sounds like your BP is relatively good, so I hope the protein is not going any higher, either. In any case, it's a good thing your Layton is supposedly of a good size!<br/> <br/> How do you feel yourself - do you have headaches, for example, or are y...
