Re : Back after a break

<t>So, hopefully you are telling me that there is a chance that Samuel will continue to be a mild person? I need a little mild after such a high-energy little fellow busted into this world through me... Not complaining - he makes life wonderful and interesting, but I'm not sure how to handle two bal...

Back after a break

<t>Hello all,<br/> <br/> I thought I would pop in and say hello. I haven't been back in a while. Samuel was born on June 2nd, and I've been pretty preoccupied since then. He's a wonderful baby. It shows me how much Benjamin must have suffered in the first several months of his life. He cried continu...

Re : Princesses and the baby

Too cute! I know what you mean about him being so laid back! Benjamin was collicky and had horrible reflux, so he cried continually for the first several months of his life. So, it's strange, but nice having a happy, content baby.

Re : The liver..

Congratulations! I remember it took a while for my liver to get back to normal after having my first. It feels wonderful once you can get back to normal.

Re : Baby Micah's Birth Story

Congratulations! I feel the same way this time. It was so much more peaceful and happy than last time, and I feel so much better. It makes a huge difference, doesn't it?

Re : Any subsequent pregnancies w/out pe or e?

I just had my second child after suffering from severe pp PE and HELLP with my first. So far, I am only showing some mild hypertension, which seems to be behaving with meds. So, it does happen! I sure hope it goes well for you as well next time around.

Re : Welcome, Baby Samuel

Actually they went ahead and put me on a fluid/BP pill as a preventative measure, so the swelling isn't as bas as it would have been. I can already tell a big difference. I decided not to breastfeed for a host of different reasons. He went 5 hours between feedings last night!

Re : Welcome, Baby Samuel

Thank you all. He had his first check-up yesterday. He looks great. And I feel a little better every day. They are still watching my BP, so I feel safe. I'm a happy girl, right now.

Re : Melissa......ben and sams mommy

<t>Thank you, Kathy. Well, it's 3:45am and I can't sleep, which isn't a big deal, because I need to be up by 4am anyway. I woke up at 3am, and some things from my PE/HELLP experience started coming back to me. But I did some praying and I think I feel better now. I'll give everyone an update as soon...
