Re : Morning Update: went to OB

<t>I can totally relate to how you feel. I tried so hard to ward off preeclampsia and having another preemie. I woke up last week just not feeling right and my blood pressures wouldn't go down. They had been doing what yours had, up and down but always had come down before that. So I had my baby a w...

Re : Any way to know?

<t>I was told if I had more than 6 braxton hicks in an hour that I should get checked just in case. I have an irritable uterus and with my first baby was dilated to a 2 at 30 weeks then stopped. It's always better safe than sorry, especially if you are having back pain with it.<br/> <br/> Rebecca<br...

Re : Baby Size

<t>It's hard to really be accurate with ultrasound. I get measured every 3 weeks and it has fluctuated from 20-80 percentile. I asked what they considered IUGR and was told they don't consider it IUGR until they've had 2 readings, 3 weeks apart which have shown slowed growth or the baby is below the...

Re : rapid heart rate

<t>I have a really fast heartrate but only when pregnant. It got up to 140 in the hospital and they kept me another 2 days trying to figure out why it was so high. Don't trust the machines. They would take my blood pressure and it would show a heartrate of 130 but then when checked reguarly, it was ...

Re : Large for dates...Preterm Labor?? Feeling great!

<t>I measured incredibly big with my last baby. By the time they induced me at 31 weeks I was measuring 41 weeks. I had polyhydramnios (too much amniotic fluid) and the baby also measured a couple of weeks ahead. I had a lot of braxton hicks with her and the induction went really fast as my body was...

when should delivery be considered?

<t>I thought with diagnosed pre-eclampsia they really considered 34 weeks the point to start from. I was admitted to the hospital again for high BP (170/112). They ran a PIH panel, 24hr urine, monitored the baby then sent me home on bedrest. My pressures came down to between 130/80-150/100 with most...

Re : curious...chest pressure w/ contractions?

<t>YES, when I was in labor I kept telling the nurses that my chest felt heavy when I'd have a contraction. They had no explanation for it. One of the Dr's put me on oxygen and gave me an aspirin which actually seemed to help. He seemed to think it was my heart racing from the contractions and someh...
