Re : Permanent damage from Pre-eclampsia???

<t>Hello Ladies,<br/> <br/> After reading the thyroid article and a little bit about Hashimoto's disease, that actually sounds a lot like what I am experiencing. The thing is the last time I saw my doctor she felt around my throat and thyroid...and she thought it felt a little weird but of course no...

Permanent damage from Pre-eclampsia???

<t>Hello All,<br/> <br/> After having severe preeclampsia and hellp syndrome with both my pregnancies I don't feel like myself anymore. I have widespread pain now which I think is Fibromyalgia and I am wondering if there could be a connection between the two. The first time I had preeclampsia my blo...

Re : Considering baby after Pre-eclampsia lost

<t>Congrats on your pregnancy. I hope that all goes well. I just wanted to say I understand how you feel. I lost my precious baby girl in January 2008 due to severe preeclampsia and hellp syndrome. She was delivered at 27 weeks. She weighed 1 lb 9 ounces and was 13" long. She was absolutely beautifu...

Re : Hernia surgery...my nerves are shot...

<t>Hello All,<br/> <br/> Melanee is back home tonight. I'm so happy! She didn't have any more breathing episodes and her incision is healing nicely. We are just waiting for the results of the biopsy now. Hopefully that will come back negative. Thanks again for your kind words and support. <br/> <br/...

Hernia surgery...my nerves are shot...

<t>Hello All...I just need to talk. My nerves are shot. Yesterday we took Melanee to the pediatrician to get some vaginal discharge checkout. I thought it might be a yeast infection. Well while they were examining her they found a herniated ovary. We were sent back to the NICU last night and they di...

Re : Melanee came home today...

<t>We ended up taking Melanee up to the ER early this morning to be evaluated. As it turns out she was just too cold. We had taken her temp throughout the day and it had been around 97.7 under the arm but at the ER it was 96.9. They got her heated up and she is doing much better today. She is gettin...

Re : Melanee came home today...

<t>I have been trying a lot of different positions but without a lot of success. It is really hard to tell the difference between her pooping face and whether or not she is spitting up. Plus she does a lot of squirming and stretching into weird positions and then she seems to lock herself in those p...

Melanee came home today...

<t>My little daughter melanee who was born 10/27/08 came home from the NICU today. I am absolutely terrified. She was born at 31 weeks, exactly 2 months early and she is now going on 6 weeks old. She was sent home because she had met all of the hospitals criteria and I know they wouldn't have sent h...
