Re : Potty Training

<t>Well, I don't think being a preemie or not makes much of a difference. My oldest was 35 weeks and she potty trained at 3 1/2years old while my 29 weeker potty trained at about 3yr 3m. My 31 weeker is almost potty trained and she turned 3 today. Still lots of accidents there but it's because mommy...

Re : For those that had 28 weekers

<t>Thank you to those that replied.<br/> Gwen is doing well. She is 2 weeks old now. She is up to 2lb 14oz (was 2lb 9oz at birth) but she's so long that she is just a skinny little peanut. She didn't have IUGR, or rather, she may have but I also have type 1 diabetes which made her bigger so it all e...

Re : bruising and other complications from heparin?

<t>I was only given 1 shot about 12 hours before she was born. They didn't say if the blood clots caused the abruption or the other way around, I just remember the Dr. showing one to me and it was HUGE. I guess I had more than one clot too. My pressures were high when I delivered but they were in th...

bruising and other complications from heparin?

<t>I never had heperin with any of my other pregnancies but with this one, they gave me a shot of heparin when they induced me. They said it was to prevent blood clots and was a new procedure they did with all pre-eclamptic patients.<br/> <br/> Well after I had her, I noticed I began bruising very e...

Re : Too sensitive???

Wow, I would have been upset too. Can you ask for someone else? We had a PT with my ds that was just too rough and I couldn't take it. I finally called her boss and requested a new PT. The new one we loved.

Update on us

<r>Sorry I haven't been back here in awhile. Things are so crazy and I'm still getting used to the idea that I have another baby already. I'm probably going to start posting on the preemies board so you'll be able to find me over there. I also finally posted everything to my blog and the extra long ...
