Re: Getting Fusterated.

I'm hoping you have your baby safe in your arms or in the NICU right now! Just thought I'd put in my thoughts on the medicine. Definitely ask your doctor because you are concerned, but if they gave you antibiotics I think it's fine. Remember I'm not a doc, but I was just thinking that lots of women ...

Re: Stressing and Confused!

What Trish said :). Keep venting here and keep taking care of you and your little one! Remind me how many weeks you are now? I think it was one of our earliest members who noted that some of the hardest parenting we do in these tough pregnancies takes place even before our babies are born. Hang in t...

Re: Getting Fusterated.

I'm no doc but it sounds like there was some confusion in your treatment. It sounds like they have it sorted out now? How much protein did they find in the 24-hour collection? What medication did they give you - the antibiotic? Most important, how is the pain you mentioned before? As Alviarin and Sa...

Re: Chronic hypertension controlled on meds - why induce?

Wonderful news!! Congratulations, Lily is beautiful! I'm so glad you got the birth experience you wanted as well!

As I'm sure you know, please keep watching your bp and signs and symptoms, post-partum PE can hit up to 6 weeks pp. I hope you continued to stay PE- free!

Re: Post Partum Testing/Care

Lauren, really good hearing everything your doctors are doing for you PP, thanks for sharing! We've had quite a few moms who have rebounded fine after the first few kids and the "last" has put their bodies over the edge a bit. Maybe it's just that we're also getting older, but it does seem that repe...

Re: Probably unrealistic but... vbac? Anxiety is killing me.

Good info about why GA wouldn't work for you - and why it isn't good for pregnant women in general, thanks! I hope you and your doctors can agree on a birth plan that is as close to your sedation ideal as possible. And I completely agree, my doctor in my second and third pregnancies had to be half t...

Re: 24 Hour Urinalysis Results.. Confused

So good that you got clarification! In your shoes I'd much rather hear "zero" or "1mg" than 120mg - but I know my doc wasn't at all concerned with protein under 300mg. "Not concerned" is a moving target, I'm sure she was more vigilant, but even though things can go wrong at all bps and all levels of...
