asjl (597.8 days ago) I was put on bedrest at 32 weeks for bp, then was admitted to the hospital and diagnosed with pre e in my 35th week. they waited 3 days to induce...I 36weeks exactly when I delivered. I was put on magnesium sulfate before the induction started to prevent seizures and was on it for 24 hours after delivery. It made me feel miserable, like i had been hit by a truck. But all things considered, it all went well. My daughter was born healthy and had no problems what so ever. Also, my bp normalized very quickly and my liver issues went away quickly as well. How far a long is your sister?
domsmom2009 (597.9 days ago) My cousin had high BP so they induced her at 39 week... her son was perfectly healthy and she was fine as well :) he does have autism but it`s not because of the high BP....
Lilmissesmum- (598.3 days ago) my bp at 40 wks with my first was something like 150/80 which is high but the doctor wanted my to reread it 4 hrs later and it was 150/90 something so it went up by the time I got to the hospital it was 169/98 with 4 protein counts (there are only 5 I was told, so pretty much my body was giving up) I then found out the baby was breech and went the section. I found that the recovery and the reaction I got during the section were extreme but both myself and daughter ended up ok and my daughter didnt get affected by it. I hope it goes ok, my nurse said the best cure for it is birth.
mrsjmickens1 (598.4 days ago) i got it at 34 weeks and was put on bedrest and 3x weekly stress tests. i went into labor at 36 weeks and was induced because my bp went up tp 160/100. my baby was fine. a little bit of jaundice .....i had a c-sect though
Sarasponda (598.4 days ago) I had pre-eclampsia. It was caught at 39 weeks with a 24-hour urine test and elevated bp during a non-stress test. I was induced that night, my blood pressure and urine were normal during delivery with no meds, and I gave birth to a healthy little girl. Best wishes for your sis. My sister had very high bp at the end of her pregnancy and the doctors couldn`t control it with meds. It was hard seeing her look so ill during induction, but she and her LO are now healthy.
heavenleigh (598.5 days ago) yes the same thing happened to me at my 37 week appointment, bp was 157/117 or something rediculous. i was induced and when labour didnt happen naturally i was given a c section to get the baby out.she is practically due they should just take the baby out now, it really makes no sense to keep her on an iv and hope she doesnt have a seizure what is wrong with them?! All i can say is if they take the baby out right away she will most likely be fine, that is the protocol for these kind of things.
(598.5 days ago) My sister went to her prenatal visit today (she`s due Saturday- Oct. 1st with her second baby) and was sent straight to triage for high blood pressure. She`s been having issues with it for 3-4 weeks and was admitted overnight once already. Anyways, I just got a call that they are inducing her right now because her blood pressure is 189/110 and even with fluids they can`t get it down. She has protein in her urine and her blood work came back that her liver isn`t functioning properly. They have to give her an IV in each arm to keep her from having seizures, and they are worried that the baby might not handle the medication well. Did anyone else experience this during pregnancy/delivery? Please tell me your experience. We are all scared to death because a close friend of the family died 5 years ago during childbirth due to the same thing, leaving behind a husband and 4 children.
