Re : How Do You Know???

<t>Sounds like you are already moving ahead and that is a really positive sign. Having a really good perinatalogist is very important and will provide you (as well as you wife) with peace of mind. My wife and I were extremely blessed with an excellent perinatalogist (and his entire team) that kept u...

Re : How Do You Know???

<t>Hi Ryan,<br/> <br/> I'm not even going to pretend that my experience with preeclampsia was anywhere near as traumatic as your experience must have been. In other words, I won't tell you that "I know how you feel"...I don't, so all I'm offering is a dad's perspective.<br/> <br/> Based on what I re...

Re : The inability to deal...

<t>I'm also a dad and the story of your loss is a difficult one to hear; I am sorry for your loss. I have not shared a loss similar to yours.<br/> <br/> First, you're not "nuts"...you're grieving. Seeing a counselor is a good idea (I would probably do the same). Our role is to support our wives, and...

Re : I'm new and learning

<t>Hey Bryan... welcome to the forum but I'm sorry to hear about your wife's condition. <br/> <br/> My advice for you, as a dad, is fairly simple. Make sure that you clearly understand from your doctor what to look out for, and get specifics (exact blood pressures, headaches, etc.). Then, find out e...

Re : Finding Hope........

<t>Sid,<br/> <br/> I am encouraged to hear that you had such a detailed conversation with your wife's healthcare provider. Your role at this time really is trying to be your wife's advocate, trying to keep her as calm as possible, and making sure that you've gathered enough information to make the m...

Re : Finding Hope........

<t>Hello aavam and welcome to the forum. I wish it was with a slightly less stressful topic that you were seeking advice on but, nonetheless, good to have you join us.<br/> <br/> I guess I'd probably need a few more pieces of information to offer specific advice or suggestions, such as:<br/> <br/> -...

Re : Late term/post partum preeclampsia ?

<r>Congratulations on the birth of your son<br/> <br/> My wife's preeclampsia bouts were both post-partum (one and five weeks after childbirth).<br/> <br/> If I were you, I would continue to watch out for your wife's blood pressure, and look out for any signs & symptoms. What to look out for can...
