pre-e free second pregnancy

<t>Hello, everyone,<br/> <br/> I don't post here much, but I do lurk. I just wanted to share with you that I had a baby in December, a pregnancy after preeclampsia. I was sure the PE would come back, but it didn't! I made it to my scheduled c-section--no hypertension at all. The birth and recovery w...

Re : Babies born at 35-36 weeks

<t>I had a 35.5 weeker. He did great! Needed a little oxygen and warming in his first hours, and the first night they wanted to observe him, so he was in the nursery while we slept. We went home after 3 days. It took him 2 weeks 2 days to learn to breastfeed, and he's still breastfeeding at 14 month...

Re : Unable to stop Atenolol

<t>I'm sorry that you're having trouble with this. I too take allergy shots, and they ask everyone every single time they get a shot if they are taking beta blockers. So, I asked why, and the nurse told me that if you have a systemic reaction, the medication the give you to stop you from going into ...

Re : Nursing - how long to get it right?

<t>Good job, Danae, for all your hard work! I'm sure it will click one of these days. It only took us 2.5 weeks to get it, and I remember exactly how hard those 2.5 weeks were. For us, we could only breastfeed with the boppy in the football hold position for a couple months. If you could get some mo...

Re : ?'s for moms of 32-35 weekers

<t>Hi, Tawn,<br/> <br/> My son was born at 35.5 weeks, had no steroid shots, and had no NICU stay, just a little oxygen and warming in his first hours. His Apgars were 8 and 8. He had a bit of trouble learning to breastfeed, but caught on at 2.5 weeks of age, and was exclusively breastfed until 5.5 ...

Re : PE linked to hypertension in kids

<t>I wonder if they are accounting for the fact that people with PE also have high blood pressure in their families. Seems like they should have an equal percentage of people in the control group who have a family history of high blood pressure to the the PE group.<br/> <br/> Erica Andersen<br/> <br...

Re : Stats on 34-36 weekers?

<t>My son was born at 35.5 weeks. He was 5 lbs 3 oz, 18 inches. Apgars 8 and 8. He did need a little oxygen and a little warming his first day. Otherwise, he was extremely healthy. He was kept in the nursery his first night and then part of the next night, roomed in the third night, and the next mor...

Re : Anyone using a doppler?

<t>I used a Doppler during my pregnancy, until I could feel the baby moving a lot. It was great! And my pregnancy was pretty normal up until the last part, except for somewhat elevated bp at the office. I didn't have any special "reason" to worry, but it was so comforting to be able to hear that lit...
