Re : My baby is in hospital

<t>Hi<br/> We had a similar experience when Cleo was 7 weeks old. In the end it was diagnosed as bronchiolitis (both viral and bacterial) which you could see on the x ray.<br/> Since then she has had it 5 more times, and she is only 6 months old. She is almost always on the nebulizer. <br/> I see a ...

Re : Anyone using the dissolvable prevacid?

<t>We tried - we would soak it in breastmilk and then mash it with a spoon. After a while I gave up and Celo slept in the bouncy chair for months as she seemed to like being upright.<br/> <br/> Now, she is off the boob and onto Alemenium formula... not sure about it, as a very strong breastfeeding s...

She is constantly on the nebulizer and I am so stressed sometimes. I sit up at night listening to her breathe (snore...

Re : Updated..... Baby is here!!

<t>I agree with your thoughs on the baby's weight loss.<br/> <br/> Both my son (severe pre e and hellp) and my daughter (PIH) lost over a pound in the first few days (they started at 6 14 and 7 3 and were both 36 weekers). I think they were also swollen and retaining water like me.<br/> <br/> My son...

Re : Not good when the doctors are worried-UPDATED

<t>Hi Shannon<br/> <br/> I had swelling and some protein in my urine from about 25 weeks on with my last pregnancy. My bp did go up and hovered around 140/90 from 32 weeks on and I was pretty much on bedrest, which really helped keep things under control. My biggest fears were of hellp syndrome agai...

Re : c-section

<t>My dr was open to either a elective repeat c section or a vbac.<br/> He said that sometimes hypertensive patients have quick labours (as long as the bp is only slighlty elevated).<br/> <br/> I decided that I would go with the c section unless labour started on it's own. At 36 weeks my water broke...
