preemies and hypothyroidism??

<r>Hi ladies. I hope you don't mind me asking a question. I have been reading your forum throughout my pg as we were pretty unsure if we would deliver full-term with my PIH/PE so I have been soaking up all your wonderful information. OK, so here's my question. On June 10th, I gave birth to my beauti...

How long will this swelling last????

<r>Hey everyone-I've got a question again. [:I] It has officially been 8 days since I gave birth to Caeden and my bp has started to drop and I've been able to decrease my bp med by a third already. My visual disturbances resolved the night he was born but this darn swelling just keeps going on. My s...

Re : Caeden has arrived

<r>Thank you all for the congrats and warm welcomes to Caeden. It has been a great week but my dh has been home to help so am kind of worried about the upcoming days since he goes back to work tonight. Oh well, whatever comes our way I know we can get through. I am still in so much awe of all that w...

Caeden has arrived

<r>Hi ladies. Yes, the title is true but let me tell you, it was not anything like I had imagined. After my doctor gave me the go ahead to slightly increase my activity to bring on labor on Tuesday, it seems that my body understood more than I had thought. When I was cleaning up from supper that nig...

Re : effects of heat/humidity

<r>Thank you so much ladies for your wonderful insight and easing my fears. Its so weird to have to deal with swelling now that its hot out. Just another factor to deal with again, I guess. <br/> <br/> Anne-my dr. said the exact same thing. She has me doing another 24 urine to make sure everything i...

Re : This is off the subject of PE, I know!

<r>Sandra-How long has it been since you started treatment for the bacterial vaginosis? Maybe enough time has passed so they can check now and ease your mind. From what I have heard and experienced myself, amniotic fluid is not usually a thick discharge but I'm not sure if this is what you meant. Pl...

Re : Update

<r>Taryn-I'm so sorry to hear you are having difficulties with your doctor. How far along are you? I think I would be tempted to seek a second opinion but you must do what you are comfortable with.

effects of heat/humidity

<r>Hi ladies-sorry if this seems like a silly question but is something I've been wondering about. I know that heat and humidity can increase swelling in the feet and ankles but not sure if it can influence the swelling in the hands and face??? It always seems like they are related and yet not, KWIM...

Re : went to labor & del. last night.....

<r>Kelly-so sorry to hear you had a scare last night. Glad all was ok with your bp and all. I will keep you in my prayers that the fluid level is much improved tomorrow. I do have a question for you though. Like so many of us, they have been watching my amniotic fluid level because of the pre-e and ...
