Re : Showering when you're by yourself with babies

Re : New to site - possible preeclampsia - UPDATE

<t>So, being that a lot of you ladies have been through this, I'm curious to hear how long you ladies went after the initial diagnosis. And, were you allowed to go home? Or did they keep you in the hospital? How did you know when it got serious enough to go back? How big were your babies, and at how...

Cant Believe It!!!

<t>It's hard to believe that a little over a year ago I was in a hospital terrified for my childs life and my own. I remember it like it was yesterday.
