Re: Lost my sister. Lost without my sister.

(((hugs))) So incredibly sorry for your family's loss. Pre-e is such a terrible disease. I think it is more common to lose a baby then a mom but sometimes the disease does move very suddenly and tragically. I will keep you and your sister's husband and your little niece in my prayers.

Re: Proteinuria 9 Weeks Postpartum

I was still spilling a lot of protein postpartum even up to six weeks. It can take a while to resolve especially if your levels were really high when pregnant. I had a severe case of pre-e though. It sounds like you might have some underlying kidney issues going on, I hope you get some answers and g...

Re: holding your baby in the NICU

Please don't blame yourself. Holding your baby did not hurt him at all. I am sad for you that you did not get to hold him more. It really depends on what all is going on with the baby on whether they will let you hold them or not. I hear about Kangaroo care all the time but we never got to do that b...

Re: 22 Weeks, BP up - any positive experiences

I got the impression from my docs that the methyldopa was not as strong a bp drug as the other 2 you have taken previously. But Maybe they are starting with something milder since you are so early. It will make you very sleepy though. In my last pregnancy my bp started going up about the same time a...
