Re : Hi from the hospital

<t>Thanks for the update and at least you are in a safer place than at home just wondering. I was monitored for 2 weeks last pregnancy because of the baby decel-ing during contractions at my NST. Later we found out he had the umbilical cord wrapped around his neck causing the decels. He was born at ...

Re : Lovenox question

<t>I have been on Lovenox shots twice daily at 60mg since I was 5 weeks pregnant. I have a standing order for a blood test called Anti-XA every 4 weeks to check my therapeutic level (how thick my blood is). When they changed my dose to 60/80 every day they checked it again 5 days after I switch the ...

Re : Symptoms growing quickly....? *Updated*

<t>Hmmm. Do you have any other underlying conditions? I am happy you are past the 32 week mark. I was stoked when I got to that point. After my first pregnancy I never wanted to just listen to the Dr and feel like I was at their mercy. Is this the same Dr you had for your last pregnancy? I think if ...

I finally have a C-section date

<t>I never thought I would have a full term baby! My C-section is scheduled for next Wed. I have to get admitted the night before to start getting me off of the blood thinners and run some blood tests. I will be 36 weeks 5 days. My last baby was born at 33 weeks 4 days and the one before that at 22 ...

Re : Symptoms growing quickly....? *Updated*

<t>I would be confused to about not being on BP meds. Did you ask them their opinion about BP meds? I was on Nifedipine BP meds and they seemed to help control my BP. They also tried Aldomet but it did nothing for me. How far along are you? Are you seeing a MFM or a regular OB? If you haven't seen a...

Re : Symptoms growing quickly....? *Updated*

<t>I am not sure if they talked to you about the terbutaline, but when I went on it last pregnancy, my pulse went through the roof and I think my BP went up as well. My Dr said that was really common. They did monitor me in the hospital on it and eventually I had to be switched off of it. Hopefully ...

Re : Symptoms growing quickly....? *Updated*

<t>In my own personal opinion ONLY, what I have been told by my MFM's nurse is that the top number can be affected by your mood so if you are really upset or worried it can read high. What they are looking at is the bottom number. With my first pregnancy my readings were 200/104 and my regular OB wa...

Re : Symptoms growing quickly....? *Updated*

<t>I had the same question this week regarding when to call my MFM about my BP. I was 140/84. I called in, since my MFM gave me his cell phone to call whenever I need too. They told me I needed to call and probably come in if I hit 140/90 or if my pulse is 120. Do you have a headache or blurry visio...

Re : Lovenox???

<t>This is my second pregnancy on Lovenox. Our first baby was still born at 22 weeks and I was diagnosed with APS. The 2nd pregnancy we started on Lovenox as soon as we found out I was pregnant. We had our healthy son at 33 weeks 4 days. I am now 34 weeks pregnant and again on Lovenox. The side affe...
