When did your Dr. put you on BP meds?

<t>Hello. I have a quick question. I am now 14 weeks pregnant. With my son, 5 years ago, I developed preeclampsia and delivered at 32 weeks. I don't have any underlying hypertensive disorders and my baseline BP is 105-110/60-65. I've been monitoring my BP at home and it's been hovering around 110/70...

Flaxseed oil safe during pregnancy?

<t>I've been taking flaxseed oil for a few months now 1 tbsp. per day (to help with perimenopausal symptoms) and just found out that I am pregnant. I'm taking just flaxseed oil - without evening primrose or any other type of oil. I've read different things about flaxseed oil and safety during pregna...

Re : Questions about IUD's

<t>Hi<br/> <br/> For me, the insertion was definitely painful, but the pain only lasted as long as it took to put in (about 2 minutes). After that, I didn't have cramps or anything. After my period stopped - which was only a day or two after I had Mirena put in - I didn't have any spotting. I did, h...

Re : high protien diet

<t>Hello <br/> <br/> I couldn't help but chime in on this conversation. As some of you might have read in earlier posts, I think nutrition plays a big role in a healthy pregnancy - specifially protien - healthy protien from lean meat, nuts, beans, milk and eggs. Even "mainstream", well accepted preg...

Re : Feeling dehydrated

<t>Hi!<br/> <br/> I hope you're feeling a little better now. Have you been feeling dehydrated or thirsty? If you've been feeling very thirsty, it could be associated with your kidneys - either dibetes or kidney damage. I don't want to scare you, but PIH does increase your chances of kidney damage. <...

Re : Aspirin to prevent PE?

<t>Hi Joanne,<br/> <br/> thanks for the articles. It seems likes there's conflicting opinions on whether aspirin works or not, and maybe timing is the key issue. I of course, had read about aspirin therapy and was pleased that my doctor had given me the "green light" to take it. I was even instructe...

Re : Aspirin to prevent PE?

<t>Hello again... <br/> <br/> I did the search on yahoo and found Dr. Hermida's study. Here's what it says. FYI, the study was started when the women were 12-16 weeks pregnant.<br/> <br/> "This study prospectively investigates the potential influence of low-dose aspirin on blood pressure in pregnant...

Re : Aspirin to prevent PE?

<t>Hi Evansmom,<br/> <br/> At 5 weeks, my doctor recommended I start taking 81mg of aspirin. At that appointment I had an ultrasound and everything with the fetus was normal - normal size, development, etc. A week and a half after starting the aspirin, I started to spot and eventually had a miscarri...

Re : Questions about IUD's

<t>Hi Marcy,<br/> <br/> I forgot to mention (I just remembered when I read the post from Akment) that at the time I was researching IUDs and talking to my doctor about them, I asked if it was possible for the egg to be fertilized and b/c of the IUD not able to implant. She told me that it was unlike...

Re : Questions about IUD's

<t>Hi Marcy,<br/> <br/> After my son was born, I had the Mirena IUD put in. It's smaller than the copper ones and it has a small amount of progesterone that's emitted, locally, to the lining of your uterus. <br/> <br/> I had good luck with it. It was uncomfortable to be inserted. You have to wait un...
