Re : Fluctuating Test Results

<t>I was put on bed rest at 27 weeks and it really helped bring my pressure down - as long as I stayed on bed rest! If I got up and did anything my pressures would shoot back up and stay up for a couple of days and I would feel terrible. I was put on BP meds after three weeks of bed rest when my pre...

Re : Heading to hospital now

Re : Anyone here know labor signs - esp. weight loss?

<t>Looking back I did have a weight loss of 4lbs (swelling in my hands and ankles went way down) at the appointment a week and a half before I went into labor. I don't know if that was an actual sign or not but I got to feeling really rotten the next week with an increase in BP and other symptoms. :...

Re : How Do you Cope with the Fear? 3 1/2 weeks PP

Re : WE HAVE A DATE!!!

Re : Baby Adam?

Many prayers for you and Adam! If it helps any my BPs also skyrocketed after delivery. They were good for two days but went into the 160s/100s consistently with meds and while resting. They just started heading back down with some good dips into the 110s/80s today. (((hugs)))

Re : does dehydration cause high BP?

<t>Dehydration causes me to have low blood pressures! It doesn't hurt to stay hydrated but drinking water isn't going to cure you. i feel you with the headache. I was on percocet, motrin, fiorcet, and labetalol and my head hurt so freaking bad i wanted to scoop my brains out with a spoon. I hope you...
