Re : fluctuating BPs

<t>I have fluctuating pressures too. My Dr. said it was an impending sign that pre-e was coming. If at any point, I couldn't get my pressure to come back down, I was to go straight to the hospital. I was in and out of the hospital 5 times with my last baby until they couldn't get the pressures to co...

Re : What a Jerk!!! Grrrr

<t>The thing I've learned about pre-e specialists, is that sometimes, they see it so often and are "bored" with it, that they think everyone just knows what it is and what they're supposed to do. To them, it's no big deal because they see it everyday and unless you're REALLY sick, they don't think i...

Re : Another NST question

<t>My kids would sometimes pass the NST's and sometimes fail. When they failed, they would then do the biophysical profile. For the NST's they check the heartrate for when the baby moves. The heartrate should raise slightly when the baby moves, then return to normal. If the baby doesn't move, they c...

Re : birth control question

<t>Mine wasn't put in correctly so I'm not a good spokesperson but I would recommend an IUD also. You can have it put in while still breastfeeding at they are 99% effective. Actually, my OB says they are more effective than having your tubes tied when placed correctly. Just make sure to get all the ...

Does bedrest really work?

<t>I had a Dr. appointment on Tuesday and felt really discouraged afterwards. In the office my pressure was 186/98. It was a Dr. I hadn't seen before since mine was called for an emergency C-section. My pressures at home have been relatively good but it really concerned me it was that high at the of...

Re : can 24 hr urine test br wrong??

<t>If you're having decresed fetal movement, you need to go in. I wanted to say though that different Dr's read the values differently so make sure they are reading it the same. My 24hr urine was 1800 that went up to 2400. When I talked to my Dr. he said that it was 180 that went up to 240 and he wo...

Re : PE symptoms with normal BPs

<t>Well, I saw my Dr. today, or rather, one of his associates. I don't think he took me too seriously. He seemed more concerned with my blood sugars even though they are excellent. I told him about the flashing lights and even showed him the swelling. He asked if I had a headache and since I do not ...
