Re : facial swelling

<t>How long have you been on Aldomet? I found that when I first started Aldomet and when my dose was increased that I experienced some itching as well. In my case, however, it resolved itself within a few days. I also felt increased fatigue and some nausea. Also, during pregnancy my allergies were b...

How long for swelling to go down postpartum?

<t>How long did it take for your swelling to go away after delivery? I am one week postpartum. I had PIH during this pregnancy and although my bp is back to normal, I still have lots of swelling. I did have IV's and mag during delivery. Is there anything I can do to help swelling go down? <br/> <br/...

Re : Aldomet side effects?

<t>Hi,<br/> I don't have experience with other meds, but I did take Aldomet with my last pregnancy. I, too, experienced dry mouth and stuffy nose as well as some nausea. My doctor prescribed Flonase for the nasal congestion and that really helped. How long have you been on Aldomet? I found that the ...

Re : Questions about tubal ligation

<t>Hi Lucy,<br/> <br/> This is pretty long... :-)<br/> <br/> Whether or not to have another baby after PE can be such a hard decision. In addition to the physical side of things there is so much emotional stuff to deal with. I know with us we kept feeling like there was one more baby, but I was scar...

Questions about tubal ligation

<t>Have any of you had a tubal ligation? My baby was born on Aug. 18th. We decided that this was our last and I had a tubal. I didn't expect it to be this painful. I'm interested in knowing how long it took for you to recover? What was the hardest part about having a tubal? I have five kids (thank g...

Re : Increase in BP meds?

<t>My doctor was pretty conservative and very familiar with my history having delivered four of my babies. I was put on meds at about 18 weeks with my last pregnancy with readings of 130's/90's -- Aldomet 250 mg/ 2x day. At 27 weeks I started getting consistent bp readings of 140's/90's. She increas...

Re : I know every case of preemie is different..

<t>I've had inductions at 36 and 37 weeks. Babies weighed 6 lbs. 1 oz. and 6 lbs. 2 oz. and no NICU. Both had a little jaundice which was resolved with sunlight at home. Also, I found both were sleepy babies and had some difficulty at first with proper latch on and sucking with breastfeeding. Howeve...

Nancy update

<t>Hi Everyone --<br/> <br/> I just wanted to let you know that baby boy Adriel Makaio was born on August 18th. He weighed 6 lbs. 2 oz. and is healthy and doing well. I woke up the morning of the 17th with the nagging feeling that I should go into the clinic. At first I second guessed myself as I "d...

Re : I've gained another 4 lbs since yesterday(UPDATED)

<t>It can be so frustrating! The whole thing of what and if PE will happen again is such an emotional stress. I don't think that even a caring husband can comprehend all the emotions involved. My husband is wonderful, and this is our fifth baby, but even then the whole PE/PIH thing eludes him at tim...

Re : Occurence of preeclampsia after 2nd pregnancy

<t>Hi Alicia --<br/> <br/> My doctor explained to me that having had PE/PIH with one pregnancy does increase your chances of developing it in subsequent pregnancies. She also told me that it can be "hit and miss" -- maybe you get it, maybe you don't. You can't always predict if it will happen again....
