Re : could early pe mean something else?

<t>Hey-<br/> <br/> I was diagnosed with PIH before 12 weeks. It eventually led to mild pre-e but other than preemie issues, there is nothing developmentally wrong with my son. In fact, he's bigger than most kids his actual age. He gets colds and such pretty often but he is in daycare and he had to h...

Magazine Inject

<t>Hey all-<br/> <br/> I remember seeing something about this on my local news not too long ago and then it was a small inject in the American Baby magazine this month. It was a research project that showed that a Dr can test protein in the urine and predict if you will have Pre-e up to 2 months bef...

Re : Question of the day: what made you deliver?

<t>I went into labor on my own. I had really high BP on the Thurs and Fri before Grant was born, was admitted to the hospital, no one ever gave me an exam, just an NST, and was sent home. I started spotting on Friday night so I called the hosp and the DR on call said to take a Tylenol PM with 2 full...

Some tips/advice, etc...

<t>Hey all-<br/> <br/> I am currently on the patch for BC but recently was experiencing EXTREME exhaustion, same as what I felt when I was pregnant so I took a test. It was negative and I was really surprised at how disappointed I felt. Granted, my husband and I decided to wait until the end of the ...

Re : hey girls, I need your expertise, quick!

When I missed my time of the month, I used a pharmacay brand test and the second line showed up before I even finished peeing on the darn thing.

Re : Been home for a year today!

<t>That's fantastic. My little cutie pie was still in the hospital this time last year. In fact, tomorrow (actually today's date but the Friday after he was born) was my "black Friday" so I am going to forget all about it tomorrow! Grant is also a whopper of a boy. He's 23 lbs 13 oz now. <br/> <br/>...

Re : How many wks were you when your baby was born?

<t>Grant was born at 33 weeks, 5lbs, 6 oz (he was pretty big!) and our NICU stay was for a month, home a week, then back a week. He had terrible jaundice, NEC and 2 bouts with sepsis. THe NEC, luckily, was non-localized, which pretty much meant that it was not NEARLY as bad as it could have been. Co...
