7th Prenatal Appointment

Jul 13, 2010 - 3 comments

So today I had to go in to have my blood pressure checked since last time it was 140/88 and the Dr thought that I was developing preeclampsia already at 28 weeks (which i way too early). Well my blood pressure dropped tremendously from last visit it was 112/70, but the Dr couldn't find my lab result that I took on Wed so I'm not sure if I have it yet or not, I should know at my next Dr's visit which is scheduled for Tue. July 20 @ 1:40pm, but I'm still hoping that all is well and everything is fine. I also dropped 2lbs since last visit.

28" from pubic bone to top of uterus
Dr didn't check heartbeat this time

Congratulations!!! 2 BOYS!! yeay!!!

Do you take any medication for your blood pressure?  That is my # 1 concern, i have high BP and sometimes its controlled and sometimes it just go on bp meds now... what meds are they giving you if you do develop preeclamsia? i hope you dont....

Thank you =0)
I'm currently not on any pills as of yet =0) I went to my Dr today and blood pressure was 130/70 and my lab results were finally in and they are normal. My Dr is making me go every week to my check ups now so that he can monitor me closely and make sure that I don’t develop preeclampsia, I will also have to have my labs done again in 1-2 weeks to make sure that all of my levels are normal and aren’t rising, but for now it's just the waiting game (but hopefully I wont develop it) What medication are you taking for your blood pressure?
