Re : Baby Reed is Here and Preeclampsia Free!

<t>First, HUGE CONGRATULATIONS!!! I'm so, so happy to read this. Welcome, Reed - so many people you'll never even meet are so, so happy that you're here!<br/> <br/> I'm glad you are at peace with Reed's birth, although I'm sorry to read that it was scary for a little while. Could the pressures also ...

Re : I am not a case study.

<t>Thank you so much for your replies, everyone! I realized when reading the replies that I was unclear! I am totally glad that he is realistic about this pregnancy, about me being high risk, that he is all over it like white on rice as it were. I just don't like being treated like a ticking time bo...

I am not a case study.

<t>I had my first appointment with my OB yesterday, and I was very disappointed.<br/> <br/> I went in early (4-ish weeks) because my BP has been hanging out around 140/90, and so we needed to get me on some meds. Easy, right? Just need to get the BP under control, so that I can start out this pregna...

Re : +

<t>About the numbers: I think there are lots and lots of percentages out there, which can be frustrating! I trust my peri infinitely, and If he feels comfortable quoting me 20%, I do believe him. After all, he has access to all the studies we do, and then some. I'm fairly certain that if the statist...

Re : Suggestions and or tips?

<t>I'm of the opinion that the more relaxed you are, the better. Yoga or meditation, maybe? I've also heard of accupuncture working wonders!<br/> <br/> Unrefined coconut oil is excellent as lube, and I am pretty sure it's good for TTC as well. I almost wrote, "...but it's not condom safe!" and then ...

<t>Hi, everyone! I'm Kelley.<br/> <br/> After a long hiatus from these boards, I officially belong here in this section - and we are very surprised to be here!<br/> <br/> Last pregnancy, severe pre-e set in at 27 weeks, and my son was born on the first day of the 28th. We only had a 67 day NICU stay...

Early Intervention

<t>Does anyone have good experiences to share with Early Intervention? In our case, we've been referred to seven different specialists, all coming back with different "diagnoses."<br/> <br/> I'm not really concerned with milestones, but with having a happy heathy baby. My goal for EI was to have som...

Re : FREEBIRTHING on Discovery Health

<t>It makes me so mad. So, so, so mad. I was going to have a home birth with DS, with a CERTIFIED NURSE MIDWIFE.<br/> <br/> It comes from a place of having no idea that anything bad could ever happen, and I'm jealous of that. It must be nice to be so relaxed about your pregnancy and so sure that not...
