Re : post preeclampsia & birth control

<t>Hi, this is actually Glenn and not Michelle. I couldn't figure out how to log her off, tried on the "logout" above, but didn't work.<br/> <br/> Anyway, after our first was born, Michelle's Dr. said it was unlikely pre-clampsia would happen again. So we made no permanent moves on the BC front.<br/...

Re : Do any of you with high b/p during preg drink soda

<t>I noticed that Diet Coke did raise my bp some, but then I am sensitive to caffeine. I think it depends on your body. I have to avoid chocolate from the afternoon on if I want a good night's sleep also. I am pretty sensitive to it...<br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> Michelle<br/> Moderator -On Bedrest<br/> ...

Smallest surviving baby ever recorded turned 15!

<t>Hi,<br/> <br/> Gosh, I just keep giving updates on these micropreemies!! I have no idea why Chicago has a bunch of them!

My milk actually never even came in, after 6 weeks of pumping and being on all types of drugs. Nothing. It does hurt and it is ...

Re : Update on Wyatt

<t>This is probably unrelated but a friend of mine has a son who just had his adenoids removed. They were oddly large and he always had gagging issues. Different textures and things like that. He is going into the 4th grade and has had too many gagging episodes to count. When they removed his adenoi...
