Re: Is gestational diabetes an preE related?

I asked this question to my MFM and she said no. I know, or think, the GD is a placenta issue. I'd hate to say something for sure with my elementary and google knowledge of medicine. I am concerned about GD this time because my one hour score was a 138, but at my doctor's office their cut off is 140...

Typical Treatments in the 3rd Tri.

Starting at 28 weeks (next week for me) I will have ultra sounds at 28, 32, & 36 weeks. Starting at 32 weeks I will have weekly NSTs. I had Class 1 HELLP at 33.5 days with symptoms starting at about 30 weeks. What types of schedules for visits have other folks been on in subsequent pregnancies after...

Re: Gestational Diabetes

I had GD with my last pregnancy was able to control it with diet. I'm not saying it was easy or fun, but it was possible for me. I got diagnosed and then there was a snow storm, so it was a while before I could go the GD class. They told me not to change my diet until I went to the class and got all...

Re: 8 weeks pregnant today!

I am now 12 weeks along with my second after severe HELLP with first. At 8 weeks I was diagnosed with a SCH. I have not been back for a scan, so I don't know how things are going with it. I have not had a bleed yet, but I am worried about it. I would have liked to start out with less drama from the ...

Re: Well...Here I am

I'm here with you. I had my little boo at 33.4 due to class 1 HELLP. I'm due 6/2/13, but I've already had a blip, a subchorionic hemorrhage that was found at my 8 week u.s., so I’m also cautiously optimistic as well. We have started telling people, but I can't help but fell slightly apprehensive e...

During my first appointment (8 weeks) they found a 1.5 cm subchorionic hemorrhage. Has anybody experienced this? I haven't had any bleeding. What can I expect?
