Re : It is killing me not being able to bring my baby

<t>Stacey-<br/> <br/> I remember those days oh so well! We are lucky to have our little guy home and I certainly can relate to the pain it brings to leave your sweet baby at the hospital. We had so many ups and downs in the NICU but (and I KNOW it is hard!) remember that this is the BEST place for y...

Re : watching Oprah today was very depressing

<t>Allison,<br/> <br/> I can surely sympathize....my husband is in the Army as well and this topic certainly hit a sensitive spot in me. I was overjoyed when I saw those wives get a little bit of happiness in what is a terrible time to have the one you loved and have committed your life to leave for...

Re : 35 weekwer? Steroid shots?

<t>I had the steroid shot when I went into labor at 33 weeks. I really think it helped Grant survive. If he would have had lung issues in addition to GERD, Sepsis, and NEC, I do not want to think about what might have happened. We spent a month in NICU but it was all gastrointestinal related. His br...

Re : Lousiana Chapter?

<t>I am very interested in getting a chapter started in Louisiana. There are so many people here who could benefit from awareness! I live in Baton Rouge and we have Woman's Hospital here. I think that the hospital could be a great place to begin to get the word out. They have a NICU and a Maternal-F...

Re : Headache & Nausea @ 22 weeks

<t>Just from a "been there" stand-point, if a CBC DOES come back high, please ask your Dr to begin treatment for any infection. I had a CBC come back high and went into labor that night after the Dr sent me home b/c I "probably was getting a cold". I had a leak (which I reported and was told I was p...

Re : What's Your Passion, Your Talent, Your Job?

<t>This is kind of late in the game but I am a new member...I have a BA in Geography and Disaster Science Management. I work as a Homeland Security Consultant. Unless the preemies of the world form some sort of militia, I bet you're wondering what I can offer. Well I have managed Grants with the Dep...

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

<t>I was diagnosed with PIH early on...actually after I got the official word that I was pregnant, later that week, I got a severe headache. I was sent to maternal-fetal medicine immediately. After a few weeks, he informed me that I had pre-eclampsia. I, too, gained excessive weight in the last few ...

Re : Need advise on GERD

<t>Hello all-<br/> I just recently found this site. It would have been really nice to join when I was pregnant! Anyway, my son has bad reflux as well and is on the Zantac and Reglan. The car seat trick is good, some nights, he even slept in there. The wedge with the positioners in the bed also was o...
