Re: Thinking about 3rd- HELLP then Pre-e event

Had my appointment. It went surprisingly well. The dr said that there was a 100% chance of getting pre-e again (with a slim shot at it not happening if I have a boy this time- though he said that it usually went the other way around). He would treat my heart rate issue as a separate issue & I would ...

Re: Thinking about 3rd- HELLP then Pre-e event

I am very curious to see what the MFM says. With my last pregnancy the cardiologist put my on bedrest due to the HR issue. It soars into the 190's when doing simple things like brushing my teeth (while sitting) or swallowing water. It was nuts. My BP & HR are great when I am not pregnant. And my mot...

Re: What does the abdominal pain feel like?

The day I was diagnosed (and induced) I went in & randomly complained that I thought that I was having indigestion. They freaked out & I delivered soon after. My pain was never severe- but constant & bothersome & definitely HELLP. I have still never had actual indigestion so I can't really compare t...

Re: holding your baby in the NICU

I had a 35 weeker (5 days NICU) and a 33 weeker (3 weeks NICU). If our 33 weeker had not had A/O incompatibility & Coombs positive (hence, severe jaundice) then we would have been able to hold her 24 hours a day (minus 30 minutes twice a day for nurse shift change) if we wanted to. Our NICU is very ...

Thinking about 3rd- HELLP then Pre-e event

I have major baby fever right now. We always planned for 3 or 4 children & I would really like to try for a 3rd. I was diagnosed with pre-e with my 1st at 25 weeks & was put on bedrest. I was induced at 35 weeks because of HELLP. Second pregnancy they watched me much more closely & took my high hear...
