What can high blood pressure do to the baby? I posted earlier about my trip to labor and delivery last night, but i'm so scared that my blood pressure is going to hurt my baby I don't get to see my doctor until next thursday. Will my high blood pressure harm her? I'm scared b/c the doctor said it was so serious yesterday, she thought about inducing me this morning unless it went back down... Why would she send me home to worry? I mean, i'm glad i"m home, but i'm so worried about my baby did any of you ladies have super high blood pressure?
Are you on bedrest? Mine hasn't been nearly as high as yours but i've been on bedrest for the past month and that helps to keep it down. I also had protein in my urine but my bloodwork came back good. From what I understand, high blood pressure isn't going to harm the baby, but if it were preeclampsia it would affect the oxygen getting to the baby. I'm sorry, i'm not very informative. Since you didn't come back positive for preeclampsia they probably just want to monitor you for a few days. It's hard not to but try not to worry!
Yes, I am on bed rest, sort of. I am not allowed to go back to work the rest of the week and maybe not after if my urine sample results are not good. I have to give samples until 3:00 today, and then I have to take it to the hospital lab for them to examine it. Are they looking for protein? I'm trying not to worry. It's hard though. I don't want anything bad to happen to my baby I love her very much. If you don't mind me asking, what were your numbers? You said it wasn't as high as mine, but how high was it? Is mine seriously high?
120/90 is the highest mine has been. The 120 always stays the same, and the other number has been going up and down between 70-90. I've had protein in my urine once and had to do bloodwork twice. I've been on bed rest and i've had to do weekly non stress tests. Oh, and I had an ultrasound. I didn't have to do the 24 hour pee test though, probably because my numbers weren't too high. I go in today for my last .N.S.T. And to schedule my induction, but i'm overdue. Hopefully you're fine, I wouldn't worry unless they give you something to worry about. If you have preeclampsia they'll most likely deliver her soon. Good luck!
High blood pressure will not harm your baby but it could make you really sick and develope pre-eclamcia. The reason that they would deliver you is because it's sometimes the only way to get it to go back down. It's pregnancy induced hypertension and if your not preggers it wouldn't normally be that high...Know what i'm saying????? So the only reason they wanted to deliver the baby was to make it go back down....They are worried about you and your health.
I had pre-eclamcia that turned into seizures and they had to deliver my baby. Right after I had him everything went back to normal, my pressure, plateletts and proteins in my urine. I was only 26 weeks along but you are a lot farther along than that if I am not mistaken????
Yes, I am 36 weeks. Another thing... Yesterday, the doctorasked me if I was having headaches yet and I said no. But ever since I woke up this morning, I have been having headaches on the right side of my head right above my temples and down through the rest of the side of my head to my ear... It only lasts a few seconds, but it happens every few minutes... Are these the headaches my doc was talking about? You ladies are wonderful you are making me feel so much better thank you
High blood pressure can be accompanied by headaches....Normally the headaches will be so bad that you will see black spots that obstruct your vision. You need to call your doctor if you have these because I did and about 1/2 a hour after arriving at the hospital I started to have seazures. If you think that they are bad enough you should call your doctor and see what they say.
Well, I stayed home all morning and since I was stillhaving headaches, I had my hubby take me to work to get it checked and it's elevated again... 144/94 and 151/110..... I'm going to call my doctor... Don't you think I should? Even though i'm not swollen?
I had high blood pressure near the end of my pregnancy aswell as protein in my urine, and at my 37 weeks check up it went really high and he did an ultrasound and the baby was small and they decided it was best for him to come out , and I was induced and out he came hehe, so u never know.
Your blood pressure #'s sound pretty high, if I were you, I would call the dr and try to keep as calm as possible, even though it is easier said thatn done! How far along are you? I think you said that not too long ago but my memory is short termed. I am not a dr but I care about people!
I am 36 weeks. I called the doctor, and of course, he admitted me to l&d and I had to stay all night this time. My blood pressure stayed low as long as I was in bed, and my labs came back normal. They did 2 non-stress tests and they let me go early this morning but they said that my doctor wants me to come back 2 times a week for a non-stress test. Why? I'm not quite sure why they want to do this... Does this mean something is wrong? I go again on monday and then I see the doctor and have and ultrasound on thursday and then I have the non-stress test. They said my baby was reacting well to the tests when I was in the hospital last night, so why would he want to do them 2 times a week?
Yeah, I guess I would have him overly cautious for the protection of my baby I feel ok... I'm just kind of frustrated b/c it seems like my bp is high, and then as soon as the admitted me and hooked up the iv it stays down. The highest it went last night was 159/94. The nurse said that's not too bad, which makes me happy. But, i'm afraid that this is just the beginning... I'm worried that since it's fluctuating, it's eventually going to go up and stay up... I don't see my doc until thursday, but I have a nst on monday.
He told me to resume regular activity. The nurse said b/c the trend is that my bp stays down when i'm laying down, and the doctor wants to see the nst when I am still active, to see if the high bp is effecting the baby and how much. She said since they couldn't get my bp to spike while I was in the hospital. Sounds kinda scary though... Why would I want my bp to spike?
