Ethnicity as a risk factor?

Okay, this is the second time I've heard this and I have no idea if there is any truth to it. Caucasian women have a higher instance of HELLP than minority groups. Is this true? I'm technically mixed, but mainly Scandinavian. I've also heard being African American raises your risk factor for PE. Tru...

Re: Um, "Hi" amost 3 years later!!!

Hey! I'm at 3 years now, too. My husband had a vasectomy, as well! We adopted our second child from Ethiopia. He is amazing! My husband was really reluctant to adoptions for YEARS. He finally realized it was something that was right for him, too. This was a couple of years before we had our biologic...

Re: Random question, breast feeding??

My doctor and I were talking about this. He said he noticed slower bp recoveries in women that had high milk supplies. I had a high milk supply and it took me 12 weeks (I think)... until I could wean off my meds. My doctor said it made sense and then explained fluid volumes in breastfeeding women th...

Re: Need to snap out of it....

I saw an article about the nuns, but I guess the person that was writing it was using it as an example of meditating. They were saying the nuns they studied had practiced a certain type of meditation daily. I bet not having children is probably part of the reason, but I wouldn't rule out meditation ...

Re: flashing lights? and ringing in ears?

Ohh thank you for all the responses! So have we come to the conclusion that the moving silver sparkles are from a sudden drop in blood pressure? And the high bp visual disturbances are more white distinct not moving spots? I had those moving sparkles right when i started developing PE. I sometimes g...

Re: Need to snap out of it....

Oh, we should really be related. I woke up today with a pounding heart and a panic attack. I did a cardio at-home work out and that helped a lot. I think what feeds my panic attack is the fact that I think it is happening because there is something wrong with my heart. My sister gets them, too. She ...

flashing lights? and ringing in ears?

Okay, this has been a question I keep forgetting to ask, and I'm thinking it will help some pregnant women with symptoms. When I was pregnant I would see "stars" randomly (Like when you've been hit in the head or stand up too fast) like little moving sparkles. When I went in the first time to labor ...
