Re: Anyone have another child after having HELLP?

I had sudden onset of HELLP at 36 weeks. Luckily, my son was small but otherwise healthy. It took me much longer to recover, mentally and physically. Before getting pregnant again, I had blood tests to ensure my liver and kidneys were functioning normally. They were. We had our second child 2 1/2 ye...

Re: feeding problems small full-term baby

Personally, I think I'd have the 'tie' clipped. I really think you'll see improvement. I completely understand about the time it takes to pump and feed - hence why I only BF DS2 for 3 months. It's exhausting. I think the BF community pushes too hard. I understand that 20-30 years ago, BFing was look...

Re: Slow weight gain and genetic abnormalities - SUPPORT NEE

I forgot to mention... I add one scoop of toddler formula to a cup (6-9 oz) whole milk. One scoop is supposed to be mixed with 2 oz of water; I add it to milk because I think toddler formula is a rip-off; whole milk is fine for toddlers. But since I'm trying to maximize calories and nutrients, addin...

Re: Slow weight gain and genetic abnormalities - SUPPORT NEE

You sound a lot like me! My first DS, Miles, was born at 36 weeks, 7lbs, 6 oz. We had weight issue with him initially - related to him being early and me trying to BF - but then he gained fine. He slowly slipped from about the 60th percentile to the 25th for weight, but otherwise on track developmen...

Re: feeding problems small full-term baby

My first DS was born at 36 weeks. He did not feed well, my milk took forever coming in, he had to be hospitalized due to juandice because I didn't know he wasn't getting enough. Ultimately, I pumped (and pumped and pumped) and supplemented with formula for the first 3 weeks until I was sure how much...

Re: Newly diagnosed at 36 wka..lot of questions

Good luck and keep us updated! I had high BP and labs were fine up until 36 weeks. At my 36 week appt, my BP was astronomical and they did more labs. Turned out I had HELLP - with NO other symptoms than high BP. So go get check. In your shoes, I would demand to have the baby immediately. Baby should...

Weight loss buddies Holidays 2010/11 Week 1

I weighed in at 148... I worked out twice last week, none so far this week, despite bringing my workout attire to work with me. :(
Short term goal - work out twice over the 4 day weekend!

Re: Amnio before delivery or not..

Like you wrote, you can always schedule it and cancel later. If you have no signs of PE/HELLP, I advocate baking as long as possible. It's hard - you'll be so worried and paranoid. I'm honestly not even sure an amnio is needed at 36 weeks. Unless there's IUGR, which can be noted on an u/s, by 36 wee...

We will check in on Tuesdays (starting today) with our current weight, change from last week, goal weight, and a little update. Again, informal thing. Glad to have anyone 'join' anyti...
