Shout out to the GOOD doctors out there....

<t>Ok, so for the past couple of days I have been reading up like crazy on the forums and stickies. One thing I have come to understand is that...<br/> <br/> I have a FANTASTIC doctor. Maybe because he is young and careful, or maybe he has know somebody to experience it, but he LISTENS to me. He eve...

Re : Ok... need somebody to talk me down!!

<t>Ok, so I got 10 counts within 2 1/2 hours. She did two separate bouts of movements about 2 hours apart. I think I am going to chalk it up to normal slowing down of movements for now and talk to my doc about it on Wed. Maybe she will be more active tomorrow. <br/> <br/> She has moved less than my ...

Re : Ok... need somebody to talk me down!!

<t>I have had 5 movements since then all right after another, and now nothing. I laid down on my left side, so we will see. <br/> <br/> On a different note- does anybody else have their arm go numb and tingly when they take their blood pressure? It doesn't happen all the time, but I notice that espe...

Re : how bad was i? Update

<t>Really hard to say what is life threatening to you. Some people can walk around fine with bp 210/125 and survive just fine. Others could seize and die at 165/100. It mostly (in my limited research) depends on what is normal for you- it is much more dangerous to spike up suddenly very high, than f...

Ok... need somebody to talk me down!!

<t>Been on the watch for bp issues. Today the baby hasn't been moving- much at all. I am having a difficult time trying to figure out if that is because I am 36 weeks and baby just doesn't have that much room, the baby is sleeping really well- all day long, or if it has more to do with preeclampsia....

Re : how bad was i? Update

<t>That is sort of what happened to me with my first pregnancy. I had bp that slowly rose to 150s160s/something, but my doctor didn't induce me, I went into labor at 39 weeks. During delivery my bp (on an epidural) went up to 180/110. I had some protein in my urine but since it mostly shot up during...

Re : When were you put on Bedrest for BP??

<t>I feel kind of like you. My bp has been rising, but not super super high, just enough to bother me. I have had headaches and vision issues. <br/> <br/> I on the other hand could go to the ER, but every time it starts to get high enough to make me, it will drop back down, and I don't want to feel ...

Re : Can somebody please help me understand??

<t>My doctor never gave me a number. He told me to call if I have a headache that won't go away with two doses of tylenol. Problem is, that I did that, and a different doctor was on call (my doc is single practice, but after hours one of 3 docs is in charge of call backs) and that doc just told me t...

Can somebody please help me understand??

<t>First, I am new, and trying to understand PIH, and PE in general, but also related to my own case. Any input is welcome, thanks!!<br/> <br/> Ok. Backstory- with my first pregnancy, my bp was perfect until the 3rd trimester where it slowly began to climb. In the last month, I suddenly got quite sw...
