Re : Do Dr's understand?

<t>It was amazing. This past pregnancy I had a doctor who had had twins herself and whom had high blood pressure and been on magnesium for an extended period to stay pregnant. She hated magnesium more than I did if it was possible. It was nice to have a doctor who understood where I was coming from....

Re : Should I be concerned?

<t>It could be PE. I don't think you bp is very high, but has it ever gotten that high with your other 5 pregnancies? If not, then def keep an eye open. <br/> <br/> I would try to get checked out again just in case. You should know your body better than anybody right now. Does this feel like the oth...

Re : Not sure what is going on

The hand tingling could def be carpal tunnel, and I hope you are being checked out by now, or even having your baby! :)

Re : Fighting how to take BP already!

<t>Me telling my doctors of my horrible horrible heartburn let them take it while I was inclined instead of flat on my back. I wouldn't care about the standing up right now. If anything it will just give them a realistic idea of your pressure when you are going about your day. But the laying down on...

Re : Wish me luck! and PP question!

<t>With my first (PE) pregnancy, I felt terrible for a couple of days after birth, but that was because of the high dose of Mag I was on. My bp was immediately better though and swelling went down after a few weeks. <br/> <br/> With my second GH pregnancy I felt GREAT after birth. I was on mag again...

Re : Overwhelmed and Confused (and New to the Forum)

Glad that they were proactive. Sounds like you had PE like you thought.

Congrats on the new baby. My prayers will be with you both for a quick recovery.

Re : Can stress change your BP this much?

<t>Yup. I know this isn't conclusive, and could have happened anyways and I know this is a normal pattern for "chronics" (all though I still HATE that term because now 5 months pp my bp is consistently 100/60 again), but here was my pattern:<br/> <br/> Early in pregnancy number two= high blood press...

Re : PIH VS Pre E? Questions!

<t>Yup. I was on bed rest for 3 weeks and it sucks. Especially when you are home with a toddler to care for. My doctor said I needed to be in bed and I laughed. And laughed. And laughed. It wasn't like my 18 month old could be told (or expected) to play quietly in her room and get her own lunches. A...

Re : diagnosed today....what's next

Sounds like your doctor is being really careful. I am so happy for you. Take care, it will be over soon enough! Praying for a safe delivery of your little one when the time is right.
