Re: Still seeing stars more than a year later

Since you haven't seen an eye doc since the hospital, I'd make an appt with one now so they can check your eyes out again and hopefully give you the "all clear" again and maybe that will help.

Re: Worried, not really sure what's happening.

Keep us updated! You're doing such an amazing thing. Like Laney said, it's very early to get preeclampsia, but not completely unheard of. Thinking of you!

Re: Still seeing stars more than a year later

Hi Kathleen. Sorry you're still having vision issues :/ FWIW, I just wanted to tell you about mine during pregnancy and afterwards. During the worst of it in pregnancy, I was seeing sparkles/glitter/stars, little silver crawling things, black blobs, holes, etc., and finally, these big bright fat whi...

Re: Lost my sister. Lost without my sister.

I am so so sorry that you've lost your sister. You're right, we don't expect to still lose mothers to child birth in 2012. It just doesn't seem right. The Preeclampsia Foundation holds a " Promise Walk for Preeclampsia" in cities across America every May to raise awareness and to raise money so we c...
