is a b***h. I think I'm slowly developing it again. last wednesday I went to L&D because I wasn't feeling good, took my bp and it was 142/92. tried laying down for a while and it kept going up. got up to 156/95. anywho went there, and it went back down to normal while I was there.
Now Monday night I had the same thing happen, not feeling great (headache, dizzy, nausea) so I took my bp. it was high again, 144/97. this time I waited it out and it eventually went back down to normal.
And then AGAIN tonight we were out at dinner for our anniversary and I got this overwhelming feeling like I was going to pass out, throw up, and a lot of stomach pain, started seeing blurry and I told SO we needed to leave. got home and yep it was high. 144/95 and pulse of 135. I sat in the bath till it went back down.



I just want to go into labor on my own this time. I want to have a normal birthing experience, without being poked and pricked and pumped full of medicine.



UGHHHH. calling my doctor tmrw to let her know what's going on...

Yeah it's annoying. I would almost rather just know that I'm either going to or not. Cause everything has been great so far and then this last week has just started going down hill. and I'm like NOOOO



did you have it with your first?

What did your dr say? I had pre-e with my daughter and had her at 34w6d. My bp has been elevated since 20 weeks, but I am on bp medicine to help it. It seems to be working, I have been in the 130's/80's....still a tad higher than my normal, but def not how it was. Im 30 weeks, and 33w6d is when I was admitted to the hospital last time. Hoping I make it further...they are talking about inducing me b/t 37 and 38 IF my bp becomes a problem. Sorry you are going through this....I wanted a normal pregnancy also and was hoping for a VBAC, but we shall see!

How did your son do that early? I have heard that boys are slower....i really dont want to have another NICU baby, cause I would love atleast the hospital experience of having him with me! 2 visits ago I had trace, but nothing since then, thankfully! Hoping it stays that way....I can see my face getting a little swollen, and now if i am on my feet too long or if I travel too long, they swell. But thats it so far! Last time, I just felt off....and thankfully I had my appt that day, and thats when they admitted me. I havent felt like that yet, and hope i dont! I hope you dont have anymore episodes!!!

Quoting Brooke Rambo:" "



He was small (4lb14oz) and had troubles eating and regulating his temperature and of course with jaundice. and he had a problem passing his maconium, so he was on feeding tubes for a while. but I got to take him home a little after 2 weeks in the NICU

thats not too bad....Pressley was in the NICU for 18 days due to eating issues. She was 6 lbs though! Got down to 5 lbs 4 oz....she wasnt handling the feedings very well and was getting sick constantly! Every day they upped her feedings and she would get sick, and it just set us back. I didnt get to see her for a full day, because I was on Mag before and after birth and had to be off it for 12 hours before they would let me go see her :-(
Soooo, im hoping for a different birth this time!! :-) You are almost there! Hope your blood pressure stops acting a fool and doesnt become a real issue!

my first was 6 weeks early for the same reason. my second one was fine, no signs of it the entire time. this time I have been dizzier than normal but im really hoping that's not an indication or pre e.
