I was diagnosed with this during my last pregnancy. Unfortunately, they were unable to diagnose me with it until the very end of the pregnancy so after many months of a lot of pain, they finally induced me and I delivered the day after my daughter's due date. They told me that because I had it once before, I am at risk for getting it again. The doctor didn't really communicate much more to me on the subject, so I have a question, does anyone know things I can do to help prevent having this again in this pregnancy? All I know to do is to cut back on salt.
Lavendar essential oil - I bought a little bottle and would put a drop on my pillow case to help calm and relax me (it also helped me sleep more soundly)
Deep breathing and relaxation techniques
Also, although it is difficult, I had to remind myself to not worry about the BP otherwise I would just be causing it to rise.
Dr. Brewer. I don't know if this is his actual website but it does give some information at least about the diet he prescribes. Check it out in case your doctor really doesn't offer you any more information and ask him/her about it - just be aware they may know nothing or be against Dr. Brewer for being different. And as always you can get a second or third opinion.
