Re : Any suggestions for dealing with these symptoms?

<t>Stephanie,<br/> <br/> it's time to take your care into your own hands and go into L&D. Seriously. You need a set of bloodwork to check your liver function asap. If you are swelling in the face, it could be indicative of inter-cranial swelling. Right now, you could very well be a ticking time ...

Re : Lost my baby

Lisa, I am so very sorry to hear of your son's passing. I can only imagine how devastated you must be and can find no words that make any sense at all. Many hugs.

Re : AFP questions

<t>Julie, I had an AFP test with Sacha for the same reasons - it was actually part of a study looking into ways to predict the likelihood of pe.<br/> <br/> When my test came back with a 1:50,000 chance of DS, the peri called me jumping for joy - and my risk for pe was put down from high to moderate ...

Re : When were you put on Bedrest for BP??

Kymberli,

I agree with Alanna - better to be checked out and make sure there isn't anything funky going on. Certainly, hoping for the best and avoiding seeing a doctor, isn't an approach I would advocate for anyone.

Re : High BP

<t>Paula,<br/> <br/> I don't understand enough about the way US insurance works to be able to offer you any useful advice regarding that. However, I would urge you to continue to monitor your symptoms closely and head back in with any concern whatsoever.<br/> <br/> Are you on BP meds? Just wondering...

Re : 28 weeker breastfeeding questions

<t>Hi there and welcome.<br/> <br/> My 30-weeker was not able to latch for some weeks and while I gave pumping a good go - and managed to produce enough for complete feeds for quite a while - 1cc feeds go a long way ;-)- in the end I had no supply worth talking about and switched to formula.<br/> <b...

Re : Swollen Feet Normal BP....Help!

<t>There is a huge difference between 33 wks and 37 - and honestly, your symptoms are building up to a very worrying place.<br/> <br/> In my last pregnancy, I was scheduled for a c-section at 37 weeks (I had a previous classical incision, so can't risk labour), but at 36 +3, my symptoms started to r...

Re : Delete

<t>Delissa,<br/> <br/> we have been asked to do this before and always said no. Firstly, we have no way to do it except by physically calling up each and every post you've made and deleting it - an extremely time consuming business to ask volunteers to take on. The other problem is that removing pos...

Re : Lost..

I'm so sorry. Grief is incredibly draining - and the hypersensitivity just accentuates it. I think your successes are amazing - they show such strength and courage.

Take care.

Re : For those of you that had your tubes tied....

<t>Suzanne, I agree with Catherine. I had my tubal when I had Sacha - I was 38. Yes, I still get the odd twinge of baby-fever when I see a newborn, or think about Sacha starting school next year. But, honestly, I also know that I am darned lucky to have the two living boys I have - and my body just ...
