I hope you dont mind me popping in! I'm due in 8 days so hopefully she will just come on out before this turns into anything serious, but I just wanted to see what you ladies thought.

Sooo... ok, here goes:

My blood pressure has slightly increased from the beginning of my pregnancy but the main concern is my sudden weight gain. On 2-19-07 I weighed 246 and my BP was 118/78 on one arm and 124/90 on the other. On 3-7-07 it was my home visit and I didn't have a scale at the time but my BP was 132/90. On 3-19-07 I weighed 261 (up 15 lbs in one month) and my BP was 128/90.

From last night to today I have gained 6 pounds according to my scale. Sooooo tomorrow I have to call the backup OB (I am planning a homebirth with a MW) to go in for a prenatal and hopefully blood work to see what is going on.

Does this sound like pre-eclampsia or do you ladies have any idea what it might be?

Thanx for any ideas or suggestions!!!


Edit to say that I haven't been swelling nor have I had headaches or vision problems. I feel completely normal other than the awful pelvic pressure from my baby's head.

Did you give birth?
I hope you are doing ok.
I am popping from the February 06 playroom. I had preeclampsia. So, I am sending you good wishes.
