another question about preeclampsia i also asked yesterday more info needed

Today my bp went back up to the highest reading that I had yesterday my heache is more mild but now I'm barely peeing and I am drinking I have a red rash that burns on my arm now but I don't think that is from bp? Should I bother going back in I have an appt Friday morning and I feel more like a nuisance going in again

  • I think you should just go to Labor & Delivery. I ended up with placenta aburption which could have killed my son and I.

  • Hun, I'd call if you feel that bad. When all I had was the high BP my doctor had me get an amnio to test the babies lungs and when it came back that my daughters lungs were fully developed I went in that night and had a c-sec the next day (3 weeks before my scheduled c-sec)...and I never even had the headaches or nausciousness.

  • You should at least call, but I would probably go in. I didn't take my bp as seriously as I should have with my dd and ended up having a seizure because of it. You won't be a bother to them at all!

  • Really? I'm 2 and a half weeks from my scheduled csection do you mind if I ask your numbers I know it depends on each persons normal and if you're 20 to 30 points higher they'll call it high blood pressure mine was just at the start of when they'll call it preeclamsia 2 readings of 140 over 91 in a 6 hr period severe is over 100 and that's when they'd induce they told me or in my case csection

  • You need to call and let them know. I ended up in an emergency c-section.

  • Go in because if bp gets too high you can have a stroke or kidney failure or both. You may need a magnesium drip or at least a 24 hour urine done.
