PE symptoms with normal BPs

<t>Hi everyone. I jump in here and post off and on but I have a question that I'm just not sure about. <br/> I'm not sure what week it was, I think 22, I was diagnised with preeclampsia once again. I had been hospitalized with a BP of something like 180/108. My baseline 24hr urine had been 180 and w...

Re : Question from Amanda

<t>Amanda,<br/> I've been put in the hospital with all of my pregnancies and they always took my pressures lying down. The thought is that if bedrest or lying down is working, then I should stay that way to buy more time. I think the criteria is pretty resonable. Having had 3 babies all early, I can...

Re : Post Partum BP question

<t>It may go back down, it may not. I know... not a lot of help. My pressures always dropped right after birth but then went back up for a few weeks before finally coming back down to normal. Some never have their pressures return to normal. Just keep checking them and seeing the Dr. Your pressures ...

Re : protein values... relation to dipsticks

<t>Laura,<br/> Yes I was spilling protein before becoming pregnant but they don't actually think it is from my diabetes, although it doesn't help. Before this pregnancy I was only spilling trace amounts. I had seen a nephrologist who told me my pressures were too low to be treated (100/60) and that ...

Re : educating ourselves and our families.....

<t>It's pretty insiteful reading everyone's responses and different reactions to this question. In my case, I feel as if I CAN'T talk about it. Not that no one is interested or wants to know what happenned but because by me telling them or them reading about it, they get a pale look on thier face an...

protein values... relation to dipsticks

<t>I've been reading everyone's posts and trying to figure out where I'm at for my lab results. I've seen posts stating that 300 is a +1 which really confuses me. I had a +1 on a dipstick and my 24hr urine was 1400. All I can think is maybe it's in different measurments so it would be more like a 14...

Re : 2nd Pregnancy - no swelling but everything else?

<t>I just wanted to add that I never had swelling with any of my pregnancies until AFTER the baby was born. I had a reading of 148/105 and my Dr. hospitalized me. I would find a new Dr. if yours thinks pressures that high are fine.<br/> <br/> Rebecca<br/> Mom to Audri 3, <br/> Ezra 2, <br/> Liya 1 <...

Re : Has anybody ever successfully...

<t>I have heard of others doing it but it's a lot harder than you would think. Usually the Dr. isn't held responsible unless they are experts in the field (like a perinatologist) or they knew about the problem and then didn't treat it. You'd be surprised how many regular OB's just aren't aware of th...
