Re : Anyone else?

<t>I had this as well after my HELLP pregnancy and it turned out it was a Kidney stone/gallstone(cannot remember which). It was so tiny that they left it, and the pain eventually went away. It comes back now and then though. Your GP would not be able to feel a stone and should not discount your symp...

Re : Going nuts after delivery?

<t>jgrumet, <br/> I totally understand. Even after 4 years and having a HELLP/PE-free pregnancy, I am still doing most of the things you listed, PLUS the cloth diapers - ha ha<br/> I had all the tests done and there is nothing wrong with me, but I still feel like the doctors are missing something - ...

Re : HELLP w/No disorders

<t>My doctor didn't want to treat me as high risk. He did nothing special. I did research on my own and with a midwife and put myself on aspirin, folic acid, and a high-protein diet. Also more exercise. I did not have HELLP or PE in my second pregnancy :)My doctor said it didn't have anything to do ...

Re : New here and really need support!

<t>Hello Candy,<br/> I had my second baby with no signs of PIH or HELLP. Here are my answers to your questions...<br/> I know some (or all) of the things I did have not been proven effective in studies, but I did the following (with no support from my Doctor): I took baby aspirin in the 2nd and 3rd ...

Re : How long did you have epigastric pain for?

<t>I remember when mine started because it was the day of my baby shower - November 15th. Everyone told me it was heartburn or the baby's toes under my ribs but I knew it was not. Claire was not taken via c-section until December 12th - almost a month - but it started out merely uncomfortable and an...

Hospital records question

<t>Hello, <br/> I had HELLP syndrome in 2003. In my hospital records, there is only a "summary lab report" and results are listed for different days, but only one result for each section (ie..ALT is from 4 days after my c-section). I know they got results of tests on the day of my surgery because th...

Re : Feeling frustrated and silly

<t>I am so sorry! I think people just don't realize what they are saying. I know my own mother has said that "anything, I mean ANYTHING I can do.." line before, but when it comes down to it, everyone is very busy and unless they are there with you, they don't understand the isolation. I would think ...

Re : Steven Michael born VBAC - NO HELLP!

<r>Thank you all for your congratulations! <br/> My Dr. is the only one in my area who will allow a VBAC, and I heard about him through a friend. He cannot say that he supports VBAC because the hospital will give him a really hard time, and he documents in your file that he recommends a repeat c-sec...
