Re : Charlotte!

<t>Thank you both!<br/> <br/> Lisette,<br/> I am so sorry for your loss. I know first hand how painful and unfair it is. I had severe PE and HELLP when I lost Lily at 23 weeks. I was 31yrs old, very healthy (great weight, ran every day, didn't smoke, etc...) I was told during that hospital stay by s...

Charlotte!

<t>I am an incredible slacker. Charlotte was born over 4 months ago and I am just now telling you guys. I didn't even tell you I was pregnant again. I was too nervous to even talk about it. I do read the forums all the time I just don't participate much. I have 2 in diapers now and rarely get a mome...

Re : Protein C Deficiency?

<t>Adriana,<br/> I don't mind the questions at all. I just realized i didn't really answer the bed rest one. I was never really on bed rest. Toward the last month of my pregnancy there were several days that my BP was elevated and I would rest as much as possible, but when i left work at 5 months i ...

Re : Protein C Deficiency?

<t>Hi Adriana. Sorry it's taken so long for me to get back to you. I usually get on the forums during my down time @ work and I haven't had ANY this week. My job is stressful too (I'm an RN and the House Supervisor of a local hospital). My phone and pager go off nonstop. I love my job but during my ...

Re : Protein C Deficiency?

<t>Hi Adriana, your story is very much like mine. I lost my daughter @ 23 weeks because my blood pressure was out of control and I was also forced to deliver. I am so sorry for your loss. My blood work also showed a protein C deficiency. I allowed my body to heal for 6 months and we tried again. My ...

antidepressants?

<t>Hi guys. So it has been almost two years since we lost Lily. I have so much to be thankful for right now that I feel guilty even bringing up the subject of depression. I think it is coupled with the anxiety that accompanies almost all new parents. Some days it is just too much. I didn't want to t...

do you do this too?

<t>torture yourselves?....I want to be back in that hospital bed and tell the doctors NO! I won't let you induce me! I want to tell them they will have to work harder to keep us alive, more antihypertesives, blood products, or whatever is neccesary. I feel as though I was pushed to do something I di...

Max Eliot has arrived!

<t>Max arrived Aug 14th at 37 weeks and 6 days gestation. He weighed in at 7lbs. 3.8 oz. My physician had chosen to induce based on my history and current signs of mild PE. We are both healthy and were discharged from the hospital the next day.<br/> I wanted to write sooner but this rookie mom thing...

Hi guys

<t>Sorry I haven't posted in several months. I have read your entries every day and for the past year this has been my favorite place for info and support. This pregnancy has not been perfect but it has gone much better than the last. I have had labile blood pressures since around 33 weeks and have ...

Re : 2nd Trimester HELLP

<t>I am so very sorry for your loss. I lost my daughter at 23 weeks to severe PE and HELLP. My situation was very much the same and I know how unbearable the pain can be. It will never make sense, it will never be fair. Please be good to yourself and take life one day at a time. I did exactly as you...
