Re: Hello, New Here

Hi Bre. Glad you found us. I am having trouble figuring out exactly when you posted, but I will offer a bit of advice- Yes, please go to the school nurse and have her take your BP, while you are sitting up (not laying down). It doesn't really matter what your BP was like before you were pregnant or ...

Re: feeding issues with solid food

Hi Bsherrica, I am kind of laughing that I am revisiting this issue again- I now have MUCH more experience in this area! I have an 18 month old (former 25 weeker) who is 100% tube fed through a gastrostomy tube (g-tube, or "button"). Due to her early birth, ventilation requirements, resulting lung d...

Re: HELLP (or pre-e) and subsequent miscarriage

First, I am so sorry that you have lost your second child, especially after experiencing HELLP with your first..Just curious if you are seeing an OB or a Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM) specialist? I believe that there is a second phase of placental invasion that happens at about the time of your misc...

Re: confused by lab results

Hi. I only have time for a very brief reply, but I am curious as to what your physician says tomorrow. Serum creatinine levels are normally lower in pregnancy so, while you are "borderline low" according to the lab results, that referance range is for non- pregnant people. You might be just right fo...

Re: New, not sure where to start...

Hi Tiffany, Welcome to the forums. I am glad that you found us and hope that you can find some answers and support from our fellow PE sufferers. Your story sounds very similar to my own. My husband and I had moved half way across the country and settled in our new town less than a year before I had ...

Re: 509 Protein in Urine with questions

Just wanted to clarify that with the information that you provided, you may have in fact already reached the diagnostic criteria for preeclampsia. When we talk about BP being 140/90, we are actually saying that if either the top number is over 140 OR the bottom number is over 90, then you blood pres...

Re: Recent loss and I just need some advice, encouragement

I'm so sorry that you lost your Angel. I am sure that you will hear from some of the other moms here who have lost babies to this dreadful disease. The worst part about PE is that so many of the symptoms are the same as normal pregnancy symptoms. Please be gentle with yourself as you grieve and ques...

Re: maybe a bump in the road?

Yes, I understand the worry when told that your baby isn't growing as hoped. My daughter consistently measured small, but with the opposite measures- her long bones were measuring ok but her head and abdomen were measuring small. Of course, my husband and I thought "oh, no. She is going to have a sm...

Re: rising uric acid

Hi there. I agree with what Julija/Sam10 has said about seeing a physician and/or going in to L&D. And I wanted to make sure that you are familiar with the HYPITAT study from 2009 ( http://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(09)60736-4/abstract ). The study concluded that women w...
