Re : NWS's due date

<t>Rene, my heart goes out to you at Nicolaas' due date. <br/> <br/> One of the hardest things to accept for me was the fact that life doesn't seem to discriminate in who it hands out these tragic events to. Nobody would ever sign up for the cruel pain of losing a child and they certainly don't tell...

Re : High BP 14 weeks PP and PPD

<t>I'm sorry you are having such a rough time of it. One thing that my OB told me when he prescribed Methyldopa to me during pregnancy was that it was used as it was considered safe for pregnancy. He did warn me that it made many people feel depressed on it and asked me to be alert and report back i...

Re : Vent - long sorry *** Update

Hey, going back to work was one of the hardest parts. Nothing about it seems to be easy. Hang in there.

Re : Lost my baby at 27 weeks

<t>Oh Sanjay, I am so sorry. I have been following your story on the other boards and I thought that you were a lovely man. I am heartbroken for you and your wife. This is such a terrible illness and you are right to say this is the worst time in your life.<br/> The only piece of advice I could shar...

Re : What do we know RIGHT NOW about prevention?

<t>Caryn, one thing that my OB tried with me at 25 weeks was a GTN patch, as being the same thing given to angina patients. The idea behind it is that it is a vasco-dilator (sp?). He mentioned that his colleagues had previously had good results with it, although was clear to point out that it was ex...

Re : Heparin question

<t>Oh yes, I remember. They really used to sting me. My mother is a nurse and used to be able to do them for me really quickly without much pain. She would then press really hard on the injection site until the stinging stopped. When I had to do them myself, I just did it, and tried not to think abo...

Re : My story, and questions

<t>I have PCOS and insulin resistance as well, and spent 18 months pre-conception getting my weight down and insulin under control with metformin. I lost a lot of weight, got regular exercise and ate a low GI diet and still ended up with very severe preeclampsia early in my first pregnancy. While PC...

Re : Some thoughts about PE

<t>Caryn, that is so wonderful, many thanks for your insights delivered in a language that a grade 10 science dropout can understand! <br/> The part about the remodelling from a first pregnancy remaining has been the hope that I cling to for future pregnancies, so thanks for that as well.<br/> Will ...

Re : Some thoughts about PE

<t>Caryn, that is interesting about the father's genes directing placental growth. I have wracked my brains trying to work out how I ended up with severe preeclampsia.<br/> I've recently discovered that my mother in law had hypertension when she was pregnant with my husband. She claims her blood pre...

Re : What happens biologically during Pre-E

<t>Hey, not so obvious! I asked the same thing of my MFM and the answer I got is that the spiral arteries are too small and numerous to appear on an ultrasound. Caryn is referring to them in her post above. The only way the doctor told me she would be able to examine them is on an autopsy of the pla...
