New baby

I went into labor, water broke and everything early this morning. Delivered a healthy baby girl at 7am via c section! She is 6lb 15oz and 19 in long, a good size for 37 weeks and 6 days. No signs of pre eclampsia at all!! It is crazy how different things are this time. Baby latched right on and has ...

Re: ROLL CALL!!

How many weeks are you? 37 weeks + 4 days Boy or Girl? Girl (again!) briefly tell us your history with PE/PIH/HELLP: I had HELLP a few days before 28 weeks, diagnosed on Friday delivered via c-section on Monday. Daughter is currently 2.75 years old and pretty healthy! How's it going? Started to swel...

Re: milk supply

Try to do a lot of skin to skin contact, it really helps and emy may latch on too. Just semi recline and enjoy snuggle time (it will also keep her at a good temp). Oatmeal helps, I had a bowl everyday when I pumped and usually did oatmeal cookies. The cookies had peanut butter in them so it was good...

Re: Made it to 37

They won't induce since I've had one section before, so we are waiting to see what happens. I will have to schedule a c section for my due date or the next day though. I think I could go Ito labor though, certainly feels like the baby has dropped! I plan to work this next week and it makes me a litt...

Made it to 37

I'm officially 37 weeks today and still going... It's exciting, but I'm getting tired and uncomfortable. I guess all that normal pregnancy stuff. I'm getting a little puffy in the ankles and my BP is rising over 120/80 regularly, so I'm still closely monitoring everything. Just can't believe i am no...

Re: HELLP with 1st pregnancy, now pregnant again, high risk?

I had HELLP at 28 weeks with my first. I'm seeing a high risk MFM with my second pregnancy, and I'm doing well (almost to 36 weeks) with no problems so far. I did not trust my regular OB to handle this pregnancy, I feel a lot better going to doctors who are very experienced with this. sometimes it s...

Hope your surgery goes well and that your little one is healthy! Sorry you had such a crazy time in the hospital, just goes to show how proactive you have to be sometimes.

Re: what do water breaking feel like

My dr told me it can be weird like you just keep feeling really damp down there/underwear. I am nervous I won't know when these things happen. Hope you can hang until Tuesday! I'll be 35 tomorrow, and I'm still chugging along... BP is up slightly to 110/80 but the dr thinks that is fine for this sta...

Re: In Hospital and Frusterated with Dr's

Nurse managers can usually whip things into shape... but yeah sounds like this nurse is an idiot. From what I remember when I was in the hospital last time, I was on the L&D floor so the nurse to patient ratio was 1:2 or 1:1, so we got good attention. Maybe that is part of the problem, sounds like y...
