20 months old and bad news---Is this the place?

<t>Hi---It's been a LONG time since I've been on this site! My daughter Janey is 20 months old. She is my 3rd child. I had preeclampsia during my pregnancy with her, as well as during my 1st pregnancy with my son William (but NOT during my 2nd pregnancy!)<br/> <br/> We have had some concerns about J...

Re : Nursing

<t>Hi, Stephanie and Nancy and all!<br/> It's been so long since I had a chance to even sit down to look here. Thanks for your support and ideas! Stephanie, I did try a nipple shield on my pediatrician's advice. Janey didn't like it! It was a Medela one and I think it wasn't hard enough for her. I c...

Re : Nursing

<t>Hi, all! Well, still discouraging with the nursing. Janey is nursing less and less, pretty much none. I bought a professional type breast pump (Medela Pump in Style) after talking to a lactation consultant. I will see her on Monday to try more! She told me that the hand Avent pump would NOT keep ...

Re : 8/26 Appt update

<t>Julie, I will be thinking of you and praying through this pregnancy! You have helped so many others! It's wonderful to have a doctor that on top of things, and to have him testing all that needs testing.<br/> <br/> It is very hard with friends that don't understand, not because they don't want to...

Re : Healthy snacks

<t>This past pregnancy swiss cheese kept me going! I never feel that hungry when I'm pregnant, and the one thing that always tasted good (once I got over my early vinager cravings!) was swiss cheese. I ate it plain, melted it over things, rolled it around pretzel rods, and just plain ate tons of it....

Re : What was your weirdest craving...

<t>With me with all 3 pregnancies it was VINAGER! I could (and once did!) drink it straight out of the bottle! I would wake up thinking about it. I made salads with just vinager, I soaked celery in it, I poured it on all kinds of food....It was the first sign of all the pregnancies, that intense cra...

Re : How do you do it?

<t>I agree with what others have said---once you get to the point that it's right, you feel ready! My first baby was born at almost exactly the week and weight of your Grace. I was SURE he would be an only child for the first year or so. Gradually when the scary experience was a bit more in the past...

Re : Am I getting the wrong medical advice?

<t>I talked to my drs. office yesterday and they right away put me back on the Labetolol. They are starting at 100MG morning and night. They will see me tomorrow, but of course if I get swelling, severe headaches, etc sooner. My BP back on the med. have been better but not perfect (about 130/85 this...

Re : Am I getting the wrong medical advice?

<t>Thanks so much for your input! My BP is a bit lower today (like 130/85 this morning). I have a call in to my OB to discuss it---hope she calls soon. I looked up Labetolol and saw that it has a lot of cautions to not stop taking it suddenly! Which is just what I did. I swore after my experience wi...

Re : Nursing

<t>Good to find this topic! It seems like what I am going through is like a lot of you have gone through. My daughter Jane was born Monday, nursed well the first few days but then got VERY sleepy. On Thurs. at her 4 day weigh her weight was quite down, and the dr. said to make sure she ate as much a...
