Hi everyone! My name is Angie and I have a beautiful daughter, Linley, who is 16 months old. I had a wonderful pregnancy up until my 37 week check-up. At that appointment, my blood pressure was 160/100, had massive swelling and massive amounts of protein in my urine (this all came on in a week, absolutely no warning). I was induced the next day and had my daughter at 3:30 in the morning of the next day. My uterus tilted back and filled with blood, so I ended up hemorrhaging (not related to my Pre-e issues). My blood pressure fell within a week of having my daughter and I have not had any problems since, until now. I am currently pregnant again (17 weeks along), and my blood pressure is already slightly elevated 130s/80s. I am beyond scared of developing something, really early this time. So yeah, that's me and my story! I'm glad i found this group!
