Re: Looking to talk to some mums who suffered HELLP syndrome

I also requested the records of my sons birth and read them to help me know what happened during those first few days. I always tell my self that I just need to be greatful that we are both happy and healthy and that it doesnt matter how he was brought into this world. Saying this is much easier the...

Re: HELLP with no symptoms?

Your story sounds very simular to mine. The only symptom I had was swelling that was written off as normal pregnancy symptom until my face became swollen. I went to the hospital because my friend said it looked like I had lip implants. They were about to send me home when my blood work came back bad...

Re: HELLP with no prior symptoms

I had very little warning with my hellp syndrome. The only thing I had was swelling which they believed to be "normal" When my face got swollen at 36 weeks I went in to triage just to get checked out and they were about to send me home(no protein in my urine, BP stable) when my blood work came back ...

Re: Stopping at one child because of HELLP?

This is a weekly if not daily question that is always in my mind. My son (now 3) was born at 36 weeks via emergnecy C section due to hellp. I would love to have another child, but the fear of it happening again is very strong. My husband does not wish to have more due to the fear of me dieing. I lov...

Re : Worried & Scared

<t>It sounds like you have been thru a lot. I am glad that you are finally starting to get some answers and feeling better. I have a Mirena IUD and love it. I have had it for almost two years without any problems. Insertion was painful and I had a little spotting for 2 weeks post insertion. Now I ha...

Re : Please pray

Such a tragic ending to what is supposed to be a beautiful thing. My continued thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time and for the babies speedy recovery. May her memories live on in their hearts.

Life

<t>Why is life unfair? Why is it that people who don't care for or love or treat there children well can have tons of kids? And why is it that those that love theirs and cherish their every moment have to practically die in order to have one? Why are little babies left without mommies? and wonderful...

Re : for anyone with low platelets

I received a 5 pack of platelets when my level got below 20,000. The lowest was 14,000. They then started me on steroids too and I rebouded quite quickly. My hgb was low too but they said as long as I wasnt symptomatic I didnt have to get PRBC's.

Re : Cumadin and INR levels

<t>Some people are fairly resistant to coumadin. Another thing you need to be careful of is the amount of foods you are eating with vitamin K in them (leafy greens). Don't stop eating them just make sure it is a consistant amount. As long as your INR is staying between 2-3 that the doctor wants it a...
