Re : Weight gain issues

<t>I just wanted to post a little update...<br/> <br/> I took Ollie in for a weight check on Friday. Going in to the appointment, I thought for sure that his ped. would think he was doing fine. He had gained about a pound since September, his last well-baby check. Unfortunately, although he gained, ...

Re : question of the ...uh, day re: blood draws

<t>Well, this isn't exactly a blood draw story, but does relate to the horrors of swelling and lame attempts to do medical procedures.<br/> <br/> Once my dr decided it was time to deliver, he sent me to the hospital to get prepped. The stupid nurse thought it would be nice to get the catheter in BEF...

Re : question of the day- PE in which pregnancies?

<t>Pg # 1 was a perfect pregnancy. I was induced at 41 weeks and had a 10 pound baby. No signs of PE at all.<br/> <br/> Pg # 2 was totally different. I developed PE around week 25, delivered by C-section at 27 weeks due to kidney failure. During the whole pregnancy I felt like something wasn't quite...

Re : Snoring ... A sign of what is to come??

<t>I was an *excessive snorer* during my second pregnancy, so much so that my dh decided to sleep on the couch! I was "stuffy" through the whole pregnancy and was even treated for a sinus infection. I've come across a few studies that link snoring (airway obstruction) with high blood pressure/preecl...

Re : Advice for a worried mom of a pregnant teen

<t>Hurray to you for being so vigilant and preparing yourself for your daughter's next appointment. Her doctor may be a little intimidated when you show up armed with so much information. Stick to your guns and demand that she gets all of the tests mentioned above. <br/> <br/> There are way too many...

Weighing the pros and cons of another baby

<t>Now that Oliver is a full-fledged toddler, I'm finding myself toying with the idea of having another baby. After he was born, I swore up and down that I wouldn't even consider another pregnancy. It's amazing how selective my memory can be!<br/> <br/> How do I even begin to explore this issue with...

Re : I Started Weight Watchers

<t>Jennie-<br/> Congratulations on starting WW! I started 2/24/03 and have now reached my goal! I lost about 50 pounds from my non-pregnant high. I can't tell you how great it feels. I feel like I've been given a second chance. We went to a wedding over the weekend for a good friend from high school...

My second pregnancy started out just fine, but I began noticing swelling around week 25. I started taking my bp at home and it was elevated. Initially, ...
