Re: And the gender is...

Congrats! I had a boy at 27 6/7. He was 1 lb and 12 oz and 12 inches long. He is now a fabulous 4 year old! He is as smart and as funny as they come. We have another friend that had two boys at 26 weeks two years apart and both are fabulous too. Good luck to you!

Re: Bottles and Pacifiers

Our hospital used disposable bottles and nipples. They supplied them for free to NICU parents you may want to look into that. They were very similar to the Gerber basic nipple/bottle. Both the Gerber and the hospital ones attached to the Medela breast pump that I used. Maybe wait and see what the ho...

Re: Aother post-partum question

I had problems like you for months after delivery. Every time I would stop my meds, I would get a bad heacache and my bp would spike. I even landed in the ER for it. My ob and the mfm sent me to my family dr who ran a series of tests. He said that I was chronic because I passed with window for pp pe...

Re: Anyone on metoprolol?

Alexis, I went through IF for almost 2 years with 2 different RE and both were good with me being on Metoprolol. Changing it to something else was never mentioned if I ever became pregnant. Unfortunately nothing worked and we didn't try IVF for many reasons so I don't know the answer of being on it ...

Re: Anyone on metoprolol?

I was on labatelol while pregnant and up to 2 months after delivery. I was then switched to metoprolol. I am still on it 4 years later. My dr said it was safe for nursing too. From what I remember, he said they are in the same class of drugs. Labatelol was not extended release so you have to take it...

Re: Still Swollen and high blood pressure at 9 days postpart

I would call your doctor!! I had to go to the ER twice for PP PE. My meds had to be adjusted each time and 4 years later I am still on bp meds so I am labeled chronic. Delivery doesn't always mean that PE will go away. That bottom number seems very high! Call to be on the safe side.
