Re: Up for air..

How little things have moved on here since last time I posted! Just over a year, now. My younger baby is cruising, babbling, stacking blocks. I still have high blood pressure. We're keeping it under control with nefedical and labetalol. I plan to keep breastfeeding a good long time, heh. My husband ...

Re: Doing research: please share your experience

Pre-e with my first was mild, and I bounced back entirely by the 6 week postpartum appointment. As far as breastfeeding, I'm an overproducer both times. With the 2nd, we never got as far as "official" pre-e, but I had a lot more troubles with hypertension during pregnancy and after. I'm up to 5 mont...

Up for air..

Hi, guys. I've been missing from the board for a while, now, since shortly after the new baby was born. I've struggled some with postpartum depression and the usual newborn routine. My blood pressure is finally showing signs of improvement five whole months after giving birth! I'm hoping this contin...

Re: Baby's here!

I was on the mag less than a day, whoo hoo! Already able to back off on some of the BP meds, so back to just the labetalol. Little James had some blood sugar issues, so we had to use an SNS and supplement with pumped colostrum and some formula, but he's stabilized and I think my milk came in this mo...

Baby's here!

My new little boy came out strong! He scored 8 and 9 on the Apgars, so he's doing well. A little sleepy, but he's nursed a little bit. I'm waiting for the numbness of the spinal block to wear off. They're going to put me on mag for a while as I recover (ugh), but otherwise doing well! He's 6 lb, 3.3...

Re: Checking In

I think it's in our nature to find something to worry about, even if everything is going well. And the toughest part of this week for me has been being away from my husband and toddler. I'm glad you have family and friends to come help and keep you company! That makes a big difference. I hope everyt...

Re: Trying to understand what a baseline implies

All my urine dips when I'm not pregnant come up zero, but as soon as my baby got established and my body started gearing up, my blood pressure spiked and I started leaking protein. I did see a specialist, who ruled out any other causes, and he said I did probably have some kidney damage from my prev...

Re: Almost there!

Blood pressure is back down. I noticed yesterday that the lymph nodes on my neck were a bit swollen and my 2 year old is sick, so I'm willing to bet that was the straw that caused my blood pressure to go nuts. Still on strict bed rest. Baby is still breech. He flipped over so that his feet are on th...
