Re : early pregnancy symptoms and pre eclampsia?

<t>My first two pregnancies (non PE) were pretty good. I did have weird issues with them, but nothing PE or blood pressure related. My third pregnancy was bad from the get-go. That one I had spotting before I even knew I was pregnant, I couldn't eat very much without starting to feel nauseated, I ha...

Re : HELLP & Partners Sperm?

<t>I had severe PE and HELLP with my third pregnancy (after 2 full term uncomplicated pregnancies). My husband was asked by my OB and MFM if he was the father of all three of our children (he is). They were hoping that he wasn't (I guess) because that was the only risk factor that I would have had. ...

Re : Post-Partum Depression?

<t>I delievered my son in May 2004 at 23 weeks due to HELLP and severe PE, pulmonary edema, the beginnings of kidney failure and a partial placental abruption. When I went to my OB for my 1 week check up and staple removal, I had been home from the hospital for a day and a half. I had spent almost t...

Re : Shout out to the GOOD doctors out there....

<t>I had the BEST doctor(s) ever! I had different OBs with each of my three pregnancies. I am 100% convinced that either of the previous doctors would not have caught my Severe Pre-E or the HELLP syndrome until it was too late. I give all the credit to the wonderful phone nurse who sent me to the ho...

Re : when did you take baby out in public

<t>I had a 23 weeker in May 2004 who spent 141 days in the NICU. Initially we were told by the NICU staff that we should not leave our house from October-April unless it was to go to the FREQUENT doctors appointments. Then, as my son got to be 7 1/2 pounds when he was about to be released the first ...

Re : Anyone had a 24 or 25 weeker little boy?

<t>I know I'm late to the topic, but my son was born at 23 weeks and he survived. He was a "wimpy white boy" as the nicu nurses refer to them. He was only 1 lb 7 oz and 12 1/2 inches at birth, losing down to 1 lb 4 oz. Our only major disability that we have that is long term is blindness. He has sta...

Re : What does the abdominal pain feel like?

<t>I agree with Adelman90. I didn't have severe pain in my abdomen at all. I woke up with a migraine at 1am and took some Tylenol. The Tylenol made me have heartburn, so I took some Tums, which I almost immediately threw up. I was on the phone with my OB's answering service when the "heartburn" star...

Re : C-Section

<t>When I was admitted to the hospital with severe PE and HELLP, I was 23 weeks. The doctors wanted to deliver immediately, but knew that my wish was to give my son the best chance possible to live. I was told by the MFM that at 23 weeks, they would induce, giving me medicine to thin out my cervix t...

Re : New here have questions PLEASE HELP!

<t>I also am a person who has a low BP normally (100/60 or 110/70 on a bad day.) My headaches were the first sign of PE that I had. I had headaches every day for a week and then I would have a pain free day and then it would start over again. I finally felt so bad after about 3 weeks of this that I ...
