Re : For all you Lovenox users...

<t>I think it's different for everyone and depends too on the reasons for the lovenox treatment. We lost our first baby at 7 mos because of severe and sudden pre-e. With my 2nd pregnancy, I was diagnosed with antiphospholipid syndrome - basically thrombosis. I started Lovenox then, around 4 months. ...

Re : why does bedrest help with labs/bloodwork?

<t>Caryn,<br/> <br/> So does that mean being on bedrest won't necessarily slow PE down? Does exertion or over-exertion by the mother possibly accelerate PE (especially near the end of term)? <br/> <br/> Just wondering. I'm hoping with this pregnancy (my 3rd), to last longer, and possibly be a "bette...

Re : 36 weeks...STILL can't believe it!

Yay! Me too! I'm nearly 36 weeks and so far everything is stable. I have my internal exam next week. Is it scary to be dilated like that? I guess it means you'll have a short labor? Wahoo for both of us!

Re : Need some prayers and advice

<t>If I were you I would insist on getting the referral. Explain your concerns calmly and rationally, but lay down the law! I had my HR referral around 8wks or so - though my situation is a bit different since we did have a loss. The good news is that the lovenox has prevented pe so far in this pg (...

Re : Can you relate?

<t>Absolutely. The one good thing about bedrest for me, I think, is that I don't have to talk with so many people about my pregnancy. I am a teacher and would interact with so many people on a daily basis - some who knew my history and some who didn't. It was incredibly hard to smile and talk about ...

Re : liver question??

I thought one of the symptoms of a UTI was not being able to pee or painful peeing, no matter how hydrated you are. But I don't know about the URQ pain. Could it be the baby's foot or something?

Good luck, sweetie!

Re : I Am My OBs Worst Nightmare...

<t>How else should you be? Pe is nothing to fool with. I'm glad your docs have a plan for you, and it sounds like the end is approaching soon. I wish I could say the same! I'm almost 36 weeks and my docs want me to wait until 39 weeks to be induced. My docs seem to be just as hypervigilent too, sinc...
