protein in urine question

<t>I live in a small town and we don't have the best dr's around here unfortunately. So I've learned to be my own advocate. With my 5th child I developed severe post-partum preeclampsia. (which was misdiagnosed several times and I was sent home only to be in a CCU 11 days after delivery) I am now 33...

Re : Can I ask a stupid question?

<t>Oh, I always bring the diaper bag packed with MY baby's things in it. Our hospital provides diapers and wipes that you have to wet to wipe with. But I prefer my own diapers and wipes. Also they provide a pacifier, but if you want to use a certain brand I think it's better to start with that. And ...

Re : Pre-E/Normal BP/Headache

<t>With my PE I had a severe headache. It was unlike any other headache I ever had and throbbed on both sides right in my temples. It got worse when I laid down (I think that was because I had fluid in my lungs) Once admitted in the hospital (before my transfer) they gave me morphin for the pain and...

Re : Worried?

<t>I have had two miscarriges that started out with spotting, but with this baby I also had spotting. Went to ER and they did u/s and only saw a sac. I had another u/s a week later and saw the baby with his heart beating. (I'm 20 weeks now) My spotting was said to be implantation bleeding. It was li...

Re : new here

Thankyou very much! We found out we are expecting a baby girl, which is very exciting being as we have 5 boys! I am going to go ahead and start the aspirin then. I just wanted to do a little research before I did. I'm one of them that doesn't trust everything the dr tells me.

Re : new here

<t>Thankyou. I am seeing a regular ob. I have not seen a specialist. I live in a very rural area and the nearest specialist is 4 hours away.<br/> <br/> How much aspirin do you take? Is there any risk from it to the baby?<br/> <br/> I hope you too have a healthy rest of pregnancy!<br/> My due date is...

Then as I was sitting there I felt this sharp pain (I could literally feel it in like slow motion) go up my neck and stop in my temples and explode. My hea...

I had severe PPE and had to spend time in a CCU and had fluid in my lungs. Mine started with a siezure 5 days after delivery. I am now expecting my 6th child (...
