Re : going to Dr

<r>Thanks a bunch everyone (for the support)!! <br/> <br/> The Dr recommended using an ovulation kit so that I'll know exactly when to go at it. Funny, he told me, "When that thing turns blue, grab your husband and wear him out. Make him late for work every morning and make him scared to come home a...

Re : News, 20 second showers and pp depression

<r>Lucy-<br/> <br/> Sorry to hear you are having a rough time. My husband is also military (Army Guard) but he is here, thank goodness. I cannot imagine going through this without having him there for me. Be strong for the kids, they are looking to you for support!! If you need the help, take advant...

Re : going to Dr

<r>OK-<br/> <br/> Went to Dr yesterday and he was thrilled that we are going to try again. The best news is that "in his experience" my chances of getting pre-e again are about 10%. Since I just had a mild case of it, he said that my body would already be aware of the changes and not have such a str...

<r>I am headed to the Dr today for my checkup/preconception appointment. I have a nice list of questions, thanks to all here! I am very curious to see what he will say about my chances of PIH/Pre-e for the next go round. This is a new OB, but he did deliver Grant b/c he was on call that weekend. I r...

Re : A Couple of Questions...

<r>Hey Diane-<br/> <br/> I had moments of blurred vision (once while driving, very scary) and that in conjunction with the high BP (I was averaging 160s/100s) the Dr said I had a mild case of Pre-e. I did 24 hour urines every weekend and went into the OB for NST 2x/week. I did ultrasounds 2x/week wi...

Re : Not put under bili lights for jaundice?

<r>Grant's jaundice was so bad, he looked orange. The whites of his eyes were even yellow. Poor kid.... He was under the lights off and on for 4 weeks. They put these little sunglasses on him....put a little humor in our days there. But the Dr said to let him be exposed to sunlight when we got home ...

Re : I HAD MY BABY - My Story - Need advice/reassurance

<t>I am not a doctor but every time I had a bad headache, I called the Dr and they saw me immediately to check BP. Stress does make your BP go up. I always called my Dr and they usually saw me immediately, given the circumstances. I was usually admitted to the hospital (right next door, thank goodne...
