Re : update

<t>Thanks for all the encouragement ladies. I had a decent appointment today. Baby continues to be really small, so I had another U/S. She has grown a little, but has fallen down the growth curves even further compared to others. (I have a fundal height of 31 cm when I should be measuring 35-39) Als...

update

<t>Well, I'm almost 37 weeks--yeah!!!!! Never thought I would get this far. I must admit that the road hasn't been compeltely smooth, but compared to the first time, this is nothing. I've spent a lot of the past month fighting the headaches. They are usually associated with a higher blood pressure. ...

Re : And So It begins

<t>Well, I had my appointment today, and although I continue to feel like dirt, my BP was not too high, so we are going to continue to watch carefully. I won't be doing anything too fun, but at least I get to stay at home with my doggies. Another problem became more clear today, which is my lack of ...

Online Showers, Convenient or Tasteless??

<t>So, most of my friends and family live hundreds of miles away, and it looks like I will be on bedrest for a while, so a friend of mine thought about doing a "virtual shower." The way this works is that a website is set up where invitees can play shower games (guess the birthday, weight, sex, name...

And So It begins

<t>Well, the fairy tale is over. I had my first trip to labor and delivery today. After feeling awful for the last 3 days (I was exhausted and really weak and achy), I developed the dreaded headache, and when I took my blood pressure in clinic it was around 150. So, I was carted upstairs to L&D ...

Sickening

<t>It makes me sick to my stomach, and brings me to tears to read in the newspapers about an 18 yr old Iowa girl who delivered a healthy baby girl and then threw her down a garbage chute. According to the papers, the girl hid her pregnancy from family, and then, delivered in the middle of the night ...

Re : second pregnancy

<t>I had severe PE and HELLP at 21 weeks and we lost our son last year. I also had every possible test done, and all came back negative. My husband and I decided to "jump right back in" and got pregnant right away, but had a m/c. We immediately became pregnant again, and I am currently 32 weeks, wit...

Re : How long should I go?

<t>Many doctors have different opinions. Usually, if they are considering an early induction or section they will check lung maturity at 36 weeks. Once baby's lungs are mature, it is a matter of physician choice--based on their level of comfort with each patient's history, and current pregnancy situ...

long overdue update

<t>Hey all, sorry I've been a stranger for so long. We have been gutting our home, and its been a disaster. But, the new floors, paint, etc look nice and I'm glad it's done before baby arrives. I couldn't even get into the office for a few weeks. Also, my poor husband threw out his back, so I've bee...

Re : Join me in Davenport!!

<t>Is there somewhere where all the info about the walk is posted? Do we need to register? Sorry if I'm the dummy who looked right at it and missed it. I know it is in Davenport on May 12th, but that's it. I think I have been getting emails, but they are all gargled and it isn't possible to read the...
