When I told my mom I was pregnant, she mentioned that’d she been on bed rest with me for two months before she delivered, due to high blood pressure. I asked her if it was pre-eclampsia as I understand that can be quite dangerous and possibly hereditary. However, that was 33 years ago and she doesn’t remember (she doesn’t have the best memory any more). My OB has already asked me once if she had it, as did the counsellor when we got the results from our NT scan. I just said I didn’t know at that time. But now with this new info, does being put on bed rest for high blood pressure sound like it could be pre-eclampsia?!
Obviously I will talk to my doc, but I won’t see him again for almost a month. I’m not TOO worried as I don’t think there’s a lot I can do (I’m generally pretty healthy) but well… I am a little bit worried!
