Who has experience with this? Got a headache from hell at work yesterday. Checked my BP when I got home and it was 162/105. That’s pretty high so I called my doc and she had me come in. A few hours later I ended up in the back of an ambulance being transferred to OHSU with a BP of 190/130. As soon as I got here it started settling down naturally and now I’ve had perfect readings all night. Still here on 24 hour observation because of the protein in my urine and waiting for labs. Guys, what the hell just happened?

I suffered with high BP that was discovered around 30-31 weeks... didn’t have preeclampsia though! I got pulled from work, and told to take it easy. I was put on blood pressure medication around 36 weeks when my BP was still high.

I don’t have any experience with pre-e but I did have high blood pressure my last week pregnant with dd. Luckily for me it was the last week of pregnancy and she was born at 41 weeks!  

Your bp being normal is a wonderful sign!  They’ll obviously be watching you for the protein in your urine but I wouldn’t think it warrants a continued hospital stay...  good luck!

Also, my bp is closely related to my emotions and when I’m nervous it goes wayyy up!  Is it possible that’s what happened for you?

I had mild preeclampsia during my last pregnancy. My midwives had me taking some tincture multiple times a day. Passionflower i think. Idk if the tincture helped or what but in the last week or so my bp slowly started to go back down toward normal ranges.

I developed HELLP which is a complication on Pre E. Basically my BP got really high and my platelets became really low. No protein in urine though.  My first DD had to be born at 37 weeks. My second was at close to 38 weeks and my third had to be born at 34 weeks. My third DD had to stay in the NICU for about 3 weeks.

I had hypertension with my last baby. Had to have three nonstress tests because of my blood pressure. He was born 4 days late. Shy
Hopefully the rest of your pregnancy goes smoothly!

I had it with my first and my last baby. My first they found it at 35 weeks but we’re able to manage it until 38+5. I was induced and had him at 39 weeks. My last baby I had insane amounts of protein in my 24 hr urine catch at 33 weeks. Bp was 164/104 or something insane like that on a Monday. i was immediately sent to l&d admitted, put on mag, had 2 steroid shots and my c section the day I turned 34 weeks which was that Wednesday. It was rough. I ended up being readmitted 2 weeks later for pp pre eclampsia.
