Fainting problems here.. any advice?

<t>I guess every pregnancy is different.. this is number 5 for me and i've never experienced anything like this. No nausea (yet) but I am SO light-headed and catch myself beginning to faint. Without any warning, black closes in fast and i have just enough time to crouch down or lie down before I fal...

Re : Hypervigilant mom or Under-vigilant OB?

<t>My cough has just about resolved, thanks to the antibiotics, so its kind of a moot issue I guess. It just frustrated me. Thanks for listening and understanding! Other than occasional sleepiness and a annoying postnasal drip, i'm feeling great!<br/> <br/> New vent.. my ob's office drew blood yeste...

Hypervigilant mom or Under-vigilant OB?

With my history, why c...

Update on me and baby 6.. things are looking up!

<t>I saw my doctor yesterday, had blood drawn, and he started me on progesterone because of my history of low progesterone. Just got the call that my progesterone was 25.9, so i can stop the pills! Yay! They make me feel awful, and I was really not looking forward to spending three months as a zombi...

Re : Insulin Resistance in Early Pregnancy Predicts Pre

<t>I'm not sure if I'm insulin resistant, but i know i've been diagnosed repeatedly with hypoglycemia and have been advised to avoid refined carbs. I was not aware of the connection to PE, so this is good to know. Does anyone know if this research applies to hypoglycemia? <br/> <br/> Thanks!<br/> <b...

Re : book or web suggestions?

<t>I just want to say that I feel we are not "unlucky" at all. Yesterday, as I was sitting with a friend who had just lost her baby, her pastor and i were talking and he said something that really summed it all up for me. "Before God uses someone greatly, he sometimes must allow them to hurt deeply....
