Re : Zane is here

<t>Thank you all so much. My doctor had put me on Labetalol when I was about 24 weeks and started having the protein in my urine and high BP's. They've increased it twice now since I delivered, now I'm on 400mg 3 times a day. The OB is also drawing blood every week. <br/> I had to go to the ER 6 day...

Zane is here

<t>Zane was born on May 29th after my BP went up to 158/100 and wouldn't come down even with that hateful Mag Sulfate. He spent 9 days in the NICU, and is now home with us and doing well. My BP is still terrible (164/100 at the doctor's office today) and it scares me. With Katie, my BP went back to ...

Re : She's gone

<t>Oh, Susan, I am so very sorry. Like others, I feel like no words can soothe your pain. I have been following Corine's progress and rooting for her, she struck me as such a tough little girl. Once again, I am so so sorry..<br/> <br/> Robin<br/> DS Ryne 14 <br/> DS Hunter stillborn 2/8/02<br/> DD K...

Re : Scared and Paranoid.. the closer we get...

<t>Louise, you are very normal! I went through the same process when I was pregnant with Katie after Hunter died. Interesting thing is that I think about him all the time now that I am pregnant with Zane. <br/> After Hunter died, my mom told me that there would come a day that I wouldn't think about...

When they put me on the monitor in the dr's office and saw that they were regular, I got sent to the hospital. I am now 32 weeks and have a terbutaline pump and have to d...

Re : Anxiety about repeat c-section

<t>Fiona, my son and daughter are 12 years apart and I found it so much easier with Katie after she was born. I guess because Ryne can help me out by getting things or carrying things or entertaining her. Your Jay will probably be a Godsend because he is still in that sweet age group that I long for...
