Post Partum BP question

<t>I had my DD 5 1/2 weeks ago. I went in for my check up this week and my BP was 140/86. It has been lower, but it fluctuated while I was pregnant too. I am wondering if it is going to go back to staying lower or keep going back and forth. I haven't been checking it everyday though, so I don't know...

Re : Postpartum Preeclampsia Anyone?

<t>I didn't start spilling protien till I was 36 weeks. Long story short, I finally had an emergency c-section during the third attempt to induce me. My blood pressure jumped up to 169/95 and to OR I went. I know it jumped even higher during the c-section. I was feeling alright the next morning as f...

Re : port wine stain???

<r>Apparently it is like a REALLY big mole. I can't remember what the exact name was (was just too nervous). It covers about half of her scalp and is mostly flat. It does have a few textured spots as well as one lump. They are doing an MRI to make sure the pigmentation is not reaching the brain. If ...

Re : port wine stain???

<t>They are worried that it might be a part of Surge Weber desease. It apparently causes many problems. Her dr told me that it most likely was just a birthmark, but just to be sure. She is pretty jumpy. Even when there is no change in light, sound, or movement she will jerk her arm or leg. I don't r...

port wine stain???

<t>Have any of you heard of this. It is like a birthmark that is very dark and covers a large section usually on the head, face or neck? My daughter has one that covers 1/2 to 3/4 of her scalp. They are telling me that it is probably nothing, but that she will need a MRI to rule out anything serious...

blood count question

<t>When I had my c-section I lost alot of blood. They did a cbc the next morning and said it was down to 8.5. They almost needed to do a transfusion. They have me taking iron supplements 3 times a day. Is that the level of platelettes? Is that something I should worry about? I am exhausted all of th...

Re : I hate insurance

<t>In New Hampshire they have a program where the mother can get the medical card just for being pregnant and you get to keep it till the baby is 3 months old. That way it covers any PP complications. You have to make a ridicilous amount of money to get turned down for this program. We are in the bo...
