Re : Automimmune tests are back

<t>I have never felt sick until I had my son at 26 weeks due to severe PE and HELLP. That was the first time I had a positive ANA test (first time ever tested). Nobody cared about it. Two years later I asked for another ANA test. It was positive again and nobody cared. In top on that I had 680 mg of...

Re : Lupus, now what?

<r>Thank you so much ladies for your input. I don't feel alone anymore.<br/> <br/> To tell you the truth, despite of the diagnostic I was happy to finally find out why I had my baby at 26 weeks. I have been searching for an answer for over 2 years.<br/> I was always asking myself: why me?<br/> Now I...

It went down from 625 mg (a while ago) with no medication.<br/> No blood in my urine, nothing else.<br/> I have never had any lupus-like symp...

Re : Protein in urine after 2 yrs

<t>Thank you ladies.<br/> Your posts really made me think.<br/> First I thought it can't be lupus (somebody would have suggested that), but I decided to do the work and read about it.<br/> I am really scared, I do think it may be lupus: blood clotting, more than 0.5 g/day of protein, I even got a ra...

Re : Celebrities and PE/HELLP

I remember everything even though on Mag.
I just read the article in Vogue and it made me cry.
It is my story except that my baby Paul is here with me.
A huge difference.

Re : Poll: Have you ever been told...

<t>I was told that I have 80% chances to get PE/HELLP again, but probably not that severe, and not that early. The risk is on us to take.<br/> The docs said they are going to watch me closer and more agressive: heparin shots and baby aspirin. <br/> All my friends and my relatives said that I am craz...

Re : Steps forward, steps back

Sonnet, sorry about Jack.
My son got pneumonia while in the NICU.
Same story as yours, he got intubated for 10 days+ the antibiotics.
He is well now.
Don't be scared....he will be fine, I'll keep you both in my prayers.
