Re : 9/11

<t>I, being in my fifth month of pregnancy at that time, was at the Doctor's office and caught the unfolding events on television. Witnessing such a massive loss of life while a new one grew inside of me was surreal. Another patient, who didn't speak English, thought it was downtown Tampa under atta...

September Already?

<t>Is anyone else reeling from how fast this year has gone by? The calendar says September 1st and my mind and body are still screaming late April. <br/> <br/> Connor will be five in two months (okay, now where have the past five years gone???) and I finished up the Christmas shopping two weeks ago ...

Re : When did you start taking your preemie out?

<t>I was along the lines of Hannah's Mom (as posted above): home for close to two months then at daycare five days a week once I returned to work. <br/> <br/> Be prepared when taking a wee one out in public, everyone-friends and strangers-wants to see the tiny baby up close and personal (being surro...

The Krispy Kreme lemon filled thingamajig I just ate will cost me at least three flights of stairs. Weight Watchers has their point system, I suppose this is mine.

Re : Because I'd like to just...........

<t>We got our Finland travel package in the mail a few days ago and I saw that a tour of the Fiskars plant was in the itinerary. Connor asked what Fiskars are and when I said, "they make scissors, like the ones I use with my sewing kit," she had visons of sugarplums and scissors dancing in her head!...

Re : Pre-pregnancy diet to prevent HEELP

<t>The Dutch study I've followed for nearly five years coupled with one at OSU that birthmother and I follow suggests a genetic predisposition to HELLP.<br/> <br/> Researchers have yet to pinpoint how and which family member will develop the illness though a history of autoimmune illnesses and probl...

Re : newly diagnosed with preeclempsia

<t>Well, you've got plenty of folks to talk to now, welcome to the forum.<br/> <br/> A good rule of thumb in dealing with pre-e and related disorders is this: if it doesn't feel right, do something about it! It's your body, you're more familiar with its daily workings, quirks, and functions than any...

Re : Question of the Day: when did your symptoms start?

<t>I was sick throughout my pregnancy: lost 12 pounds during the first four months, had two semi-good weeks transitioning into the fifth month, and all went haywire midway through the fifth month. <br/> <br/> By 5 and 1/2 months, I had gestational diabetes and symptoms of what I know now to be eclam...

Re : Headaches/visual disturbances.. ((updated))

<t>You are describing my entire weekend before Connor's birth: horrible headaches, floaters and complete loss of vision. Mine, unbeknownst at the time, was due to rising blood pressure per HELLP and pre-e (bp was 270/180 when Connor was born). Forget calling the doctor, go to the emergency room and ...
