Re : rude awakening

<r>Julie I wish there was! The group of 4 are the only specialists in the area and apparently serve most of the state. In New Orleans, there are more but it is outside of my insurance coverage area so it would only cover like 30% of the bill. I guess since my OB said there would only be about a 10% ...

rude awakening

<r>I called today to get a preconception appt with a maternal fetal specialist and was told that they would not see me unless I was pregnant and had a reason to see a specialist. Have any of you ever heard of this? I read that so many people on here went for their pre conception appts with the high ...

Re : newbie here with a question?

<r>Wow, I am very sorry about your baby boy. That must be the most difficult thing to go through, the death of your baby. <br/> <br/> I had mild pre-e and I just went for my preconception appt last week. The Dr told me that the chances increase by how severe you had it first. He gave me about a 10% ...

Re : Preemie care, 19th century style

<r>That really was a great story. <br/> <br/> My son's pediatrician was a preemie! The first visit we had with him, we were worried about development and such so he told us, "Look, see how a preemie can turn out? We can even be Doctors!!"<br/> <br/> We got a kick out of that. <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/>...

Re : Baby only sleeps in carseat....

<r>Grant slept in his carseat for a good while too. We did the weaning thing, like Mada. Put the carrier in the bed then transfer. We also used a wedge with the positioners in his bed. Even now, we put a pillow under one side of his mattress and he sleeps on an incline. He's 13 months now and the re...

Re : Question of the Day: PE and infertility

<r>The first was an oops but it was right after I had surgery to remove cysts and scar tissue build-up. <br/> <br/> We are going to try again in August and I hope it is easy!

Re : ?'s for moms of 32-35 weekers

<r>OK my baby was a mega preemie. 33 weeks, he weighed in at 5 lbs, 6 oz, 19 inches!!. He would have been about 12 lbs if I would have gone full term. His weight, I think helped pull him thru some tough times. We also went through nasty jaundice, sepsis, NEC, temp issues and feeding problems. He was...
