Re: Loss two babies to Preeclampsia

I am very sorry for the loss of your two babies. I lost my first child in 2007 due to severe PE, and a second daughter in 2011 because of a complete abruption (which according to my doctors is related PE + abruption= faulty placental implantation. In between my daughters I did have a son, who I was ...

LOVENOX question

I went to get my 3rd and final opinion yesterday with a local Peri. I am having my IUD removed next month, and she would like to me to be on lovenox 40mg once a day starting next month, and switch to twice a day once I get pregnancy. Here are my questions: - how did you avoid the bruising? - did you...

Re: Anyone knows about IUGR?

With my two bad pregnancies, both girls had IUGR. With my first baby in 2007, she had severe IUGR @ my 24 wk ultrasound, and by that time I already had preeclampsia. In 2011, my daughter had IUGR, but with good blood flow, and no signs of PE. It stumped my doctor, who said that because my daughter h...

Re: Pregnant Again

Congratulations on your pregnancy. I lost my second daughter last year at 24 weeks to a complete and unexpected abruption as well. My blood pressure was normal, and no signs of PE. We will hopefully be trying again at the end of 2013. Needless to say, I am TERRIFIED of it happening again (the abrupt...

I chickened out of my peri appointment

I finally convinced my husband to give it one last try for a sibling for my son. We are planning on TTC in August '13. I had set up our pre-conception appointment with my perinatologist this coming Monday. This week I started to panic, worrying about what she might say that she didn't already say la...

starting to show cardiovascular disease problems

Hi everyone, I haven't responded to much in the past year, I still like to read the posts and see what is new. I went in to have an ultrasound scan of my carotid arteries yesterday because I am worried about dying of a heart attack (I already have the high BP), and I have also been reading about rev...

Re: stats for 3rd pregnancies?

Hi Jean, I'm glad to see you posting again on the forums. I've checked your blog, but it has not been updated in a while. I too would love my son to have a living sibling, but for me the stats and odds are pretty bad. Nevertheless, my peri respects my decision if/when I choose to try again. Now conv...
