Good Afternoon Ladies!

Hope everyone is doing well today Does anyone have pregnancy related hypertension? I have a couple of questions about the NST and sonograms. Thanks!

Marissa

That would be preeclampsia, right?
I don't have it myself but just curious if that's the same thing.

Not neccessarily, EverydayJoy. Pre-Eclampsia also involves high proteins in the urine, possible hand/feet swelling and other things. High BP is a part of that too, but since I have no other issues besides this, they have diagnosed it as pregnancy related hypertension since my BP is fine when I am not pregnant. I'm on BP meds and they are keeping it stable for now Yay!

Glad they have it under control! I have a heart arrhythmia that I only get while pregnant, and I'm on a low dose of a BP med (Atenolol) to control that. So I guess I can sort of relate! Pregnancy puts a lot of strain on the cardiovascular system.

I have pregnancy related hypertension. For it to be preeclampsia you must have protien in your urine. I've been dealing with it for almost 4 weeks now.

Hi, Mrsbowbin...how far along are you? Do you have to do weekly NST tests yet?

Before my meds, my BP was usually 144/90 which is high. They say anything over 140/80-90 can be considered pregnancy hypertension. When my meds kick in it's usually in the 120 range over/60 which is much better. But because I'm meds I have to have weekly NST now that I'm 32 weeks and a ultrasound every 2 weeks. What have your numbers been?

I'm 33 weeks. I start my NST at 34 weeks, going into hospital once a week from then until delivery. Found out about BP by accident because I was having horrible migraines. My BP spiked to 180/108...thank goodness it came down quickly, I was scared to death. I currently around 145/80 +/- never had a BP issue in my life but do have strong family history.

Oh my, I'd be scared out of my mind. Mine never spiked and I don't have headaches or anything, but I guess the doctor was just concerned at it being a little too high for being pregnant. I'm the same as you though, I have a family history but no issues myself when not pregnant. Hope your NSTs go well. I start mine every Monday starting this coming Monday.

No pregnancy induced hypertension is a sign of possible chance you can get preeclampsia. I have hypertension from pregnancy. They watch you very close throughout pregnancy. Dr visit snd sonograms are more frequent, especially towards the end. I now go every week for a sonogram and every other for a Dr visit.
