Re: Anyone due in January/February 2017?

Elena was born on February 8th at 39 weeks and 1 day! That was our scheduled c section date, and we made it! She was 8 lbs 2 oz (much bigger than we were expecting) and we're both doing great. After surgery we were in the hospital for a standard 3 days. My blood pressure was elevated, but blood work...

Re: Anyone due in January/February 2017?

Oh Tammy, I'm so sorry. I know what it's like to be completely dismissed by a doctor in a situation like this. Are you near a hospital where you could pop into labour and delivery? You will be worrying about your blood pressure tonight, and that will only serve to make it elevate more, or stay up. I...

Re: Anyone due in January/February 2017?

Smartie, how did everything go? I am hoping you had a good section, no pre-e, and are "relaxing" at home with a healthy new baby. :)

Re: Anyone due in January/February 2017?

Yay guys! That's great news for both of you. I've got 38 days to go, not that I'm counting. Smartie, I can't wait to hear about the new baby and I'll be thinking good thoughts for you.

Re: Anyone due in January/February 2017?

Well, so far so good for me. 33 weeks and 3 days, and today's biophysical was great. My BP is holding steady, although I simply can't keep myself from panicking at the doctor's. I had an ugly cry in front of the doctor at the last visit, but I'm grateful that the baby continues to do well despite my...

Re: Pregnancy after preeclampsia

I had an ultrasound at 8 weeks to confirm my dates, and then my other ultrasounds started at 20 weeks. That's when they started checking growth, uterine artery resistance and resistance in the umbilical cord. I believe the plan had been to continue with monthly ultrasounds, but at 24 weeks there was...

Re: Anyone due in January/February 2017?

Just an update here. I had an ultrasound early in December, which was all okay. I am now being seen at the local hospital rather than traveling to the specialty hospital. The baby was in the 47% percentile (she seems to bounce around a bit), amniotic fluid was good, and the resistive index in the um...

Re: Anyone due in January/February 2017?

I got a call yesterday from the hospital with my c-section booking. February 8th. That seems ridiculous to even consider, haha. I can't fathom still being pregnant at 39 weeks but we shall see. The nurse said "due to some of the information you provided in your pre-surgical questionnaire, the anesth...

Re: Anyone due in January/February 2017?

Wow! 3 lbs 3 oz! Sue, you must be over the moon. I can't wait to get past my first daughter's birth weight. It will seem surreal, and you are almost there!! Tammy, I know the anticipation of waiting to see a specialist. I see an internist about my palpitations in a couple of weeks and while I am hap...
