Re : Feelings of Guilt, re: 2nd baby

<t>Hi Alisha,<br/> <br/> Well, I had my daughter in September. Before that, it has just been Ben and I at home for 3 YEARS! He was born very early and required a lot of attention and care from me and my husband. I had the same worries you all had. Now, after being home with both children for 4 month...

Re : Madeleine Shea is here!

Yes, I am still able to breastfeed....in fact, they encourage it. The problem is, it is soooooo painful. But the antibiotics are working quickly and I am almost back to normal!

Well....out of the hospital! What a rollercoaster

<t>So...they released me from the hospital yesterday. Since my BP stabilized and my platelets went back up a bit, and my 24 hr urine was only at 100, they decided to let me go home. I am on strict bed rest now. I have to go in for check ups twice a week where they will check my urine, BP, labs, and ...

Re : UPDATED - Well...I am in the hospital now.

<t>Well....my 24-hr urine came back. I am only at 100! So..technically, they aren't giving me the PE diagnosis just yet. My BPs have leveled off in the 130/80s range. No headaches or other symptoms (other than minor swelling). It is all up to my lab work and my platelets. If they remain stable, mayb...

UPDATED - Well...I am in the hospital now.

<t>So, Wednesday night, I had BPs in the 150s/90s and 140s/90s and a raging headache that wouldn't respond to Tylenol so my Peri had me meet him in L&D. Of course, when I got there, my BPs were back down in the 120s/80s, no protein and normal labs. They gave me medication for my headache and sen...

Re : Almost 32 weeks but BP going up and other issues.

<t>He didn't order a 24 hour urine. He instead ran blood tests to check my organ function (uric acid, etc). All seems normal for now but he wants to repeat these tests on Thursday to be sure there is no change. I have been in bed pretty much all day and had BP of 120/88. The 88 is still bothersome b...

Almost 32 weeks but BP going up and other issues.

<t>Well...I am going to be 32 weeks on Wednesday but I had pressures today of 140's/90's. I went into my Peri's office and had some tests done. I had trace protein and some of my bloodwork is creeping up but still in the normal range. Also, I had a weight gain for 4 lbs in a week (and I wasn't eatin...

Re : Finally able to check back in with everyone

<t>Stories like yours never cease to amaze me. Why is that women are getting such crappy care in this country? I cannot begin to tell you the horror stories some of my best friends have endured. I would immediately get a new high risk OB. You do not need more stress in your life right now. Your OB s...
