Re : Best bottles for preemies?

The hospital loaded us up with bottles and nipples. Each day they gave us a bunch of stuff to take home, pacifiers, bottles, nipples, diapers, etc... It was nice to have that stuff on hand once we got home.

Re : Labile pressure on meds?

<t>I've been on 200 mg of Labetalol 2x a day, baby aspirin and calcium since about 18 weeks. I will be 28 weeks on Saturday. <br/> <br/> I've been swelling off and on and it gets pretty ugly at times. When I first got on them (BP meds), I was having such nice, low pressures. Now that I feel like I'v...

Labile pressure on meds?

<t>Hey everyone-<br/> <br/> I went to the OB today and my BP was pretty darn good. I hadn't eaten b/c I had to do the diabetes test again today so I don't know if that played a factor in the good BP. Anyway, I met DH after for some lunch b/c I was absolutely RAVENOUS by the time I was done. So I eat...

Re : My year with a high needs baby

<t>Danae-<br/> <br/> Sounds like a Grant from the first word.... He turned 2 at the end of March and is still on the GERD meds. I want to try to start weaning him off the meds but he gets reflux even with them sometimes! <br/> <br/> He's also very, um...ACTIVE. It was extremely difficult for me to g...

Re : 32 week Appt...Update 4/20

<t>Gosh I hope your labs come back with good results. I completely understand how you're feeling though. I felt like I was reading my own post! It is hard to stay optimistic when your Drs tell you that you are definitely looking at a pre-term baby...while we're out of the micro preemie stage, it is ...

27 week update

<t>Hey all!<br/> <br/> Just wanted to give a quick update on this baby! I went to the peri yesterday and BP is starting to creep. I am on calcium, baby aspirin and 400 mg of Labetalol each day. BP was 136/86. Not too bad but it was 112/72 last time I was there. You get admitted for assessment at 140...

Re : What is wrong with him?

<t>It is possible to have an ear infection with tubes. Grant had a serious one about a month after the tubes were placed and the gook was NOT running out of his ear, like the ENT said it would. By the time I realized it was his ears, they were both bright red and swollen and his temp had skyrocketed...

Re : 33/34 Week Preemies

<t>Heather-<br/> <br/> My Grant was a 33 weeker and it really depends...I've seen ladies on here post that theirs came home after a few days and others who have stayed in longer. We stayed in NICU for a month, came home a week, then went back a week but Grant had a few preemie complications such as ...

Re : Oh my... Should i be NERVOUS??? *kind of updated*

<t>Kacky-<br/> <br/> I am in the same boat as you are! My peri put me on progesterone injections (Delalutin). Supposedly, they give you a 20-30% chance of NOT delivering early but I am not so sure how this is working on me. I had the cervical u/s done last Thurs and one done yesterday and I went fro...
