Re: Help?

My BP averaged a few points lower in the second trimester this time around—like 105/62 instead of my normal 110/65—but nothing so dramatic I'd call it a "dip." I was hoping to see something, since I saw someone post here that in the pregnancy where she had PE she never got a dip, whereas with he...

Re: Help?

Context: w/baby #1 I delivered with PE and HELLP at 25.6 weeks; with baby #2 I am now 36.3, although I've had quite a few scares this time around... My experience has been that stress has a HUGE effect, and the more I freak out about it, the more it stays elevated. Two examples: when my mother and m...

Re: 36&1!!!!

Congratulations, that's so exciting! Sounds like you'll make it to full term. :) I'm 35 weeks today (right behind you) and can't believe how small the timeframe is now—I keep thinking, even if things go begin to go south tomorrow, it'll take a few days for them to decide what to do about it and th...

Re: Baby Due in March 2013

33 weeks tomorrow, for me! Everything okay so far. Blood pressure is trending upward but still in acceptable ranges. Finished my last prenatal class last night, remembering when I scheduled them that I didn't know if I make it to any of them! Baby at 58th percentile last time I saw the MFM, but that...

Re: 27 weeks with number 3 *Headaches*!

I'll second (fourth? fifth?) the advice on this. Without trying to imply that you're in the same boat and totally freak you out, I got severe PE and HELLP at 24 weeks after a totally uneventful early pregnancy the first time around. Once they'd noted my high BP and protein spillage and diagnosed me ...

Re: Almost there!

Good luck to both of you! You're almost there!!! Had my 30-week check-up this afternoon, and everything looked fine. After all my superstition, we are finally starting to assemble a registry, set up the nursery, etc., so I've jumped from total denial straight into OMGSOMUCHTODOTHISMAYACTUALLYBEHAPPE...

Re: Change of Plans !!

Oh, WOW, that's so exciting! And scary, I know, but so exciting! Sounds like a good-sized, healthy baby! We're all rooting for you both. My MFM is aiming for 37 weeks with me, for the same reason (previous classical c-section), which—all going well, fingers crossed, etc.—will put us in the first...

Re: 26 week growth and dopplers

Congratulations! I know how you feel: at this point in my last pregnancy I was already in the hospital, but this time so far (apart from one spike at Thanksgiving) everything's been going very smoothly. I'll be 28 weeks the day after Christmas, so that's the big milestone I'm aiming for! Good luck t...
