Re : I think I've made a decision, OB appt. 2morrow.

I was induced w/ my first, and in my case, it was just awful. I honestly would not wish it on my worst enemy. So I'm happy for you that you've decided to go for a repeat C-, and wish you the best of luck!

Re : Feeling Exasperated...

<t>Ugh! Good luck -- I never made it past 37 weeks last time, and I'll tell you, I was ready for that baby to be OUT by the time I hit about 33 weeks! I can't imagine passing my due date, but at least you have a well cooked little bun in there! I'm sending some cervix-dialating, easy (ha!) labor vib...

Re : Hi all, wish me luck

<t>You know, it's funny, because I've gotten asked the BP medication question a lot. I actually see Certified Nurse-Midwives in a clinic that also has OBs. The general philosophy they have is that if they can treat the condition without medication, it seems to be better for all. Plus, since the hype...

Re : Hi all, wish me luck

<t>Oh, thanks everyone. My parents are about 20 minutes away, and thankfully my dad just retired. So they're insisting that they're going to come over every weekday to help. My dad will be on Garrett duty and my mom is going to help with meals & kitchen / laundry duty. I feel so fortunate to hav...

Re : Hi all, wish me luck

<t>Well, it wasn't terrible, but given the other symptoms, my history, and the fact that I'm only 24wks, I'm on bedrest. BP was 137/98, the lab took samples, and I'll be back in on Friday.<br/> <br/> Looking forward to getting to know all of you, that's for sure! What else is there to do when you're...

Re : Hi Everyone, new here.

<t>Hi Everyone! Thanks especially to Caryn and Alanna for the links. I knew some of you ladies would have to come through -- I didn't even really know what to search for, to be honest!<br/> <br/> I found the research fascinating. I also think it's interesting that they've typically shown a maternal ...

Hi Everyone, new here.

<t>My name is Maureen, and I had PE with my first son, born in March '04. I recently found out I'm expecting again in July.<br/> <br/> I saw a perinatologist once in my pregnancy, but otherwise was under the care of CNMs the entire time. I spent a total of 12 weeks on bedrest at home (6 prior and 6 ...
