Re: VBAC

Thanks for sharing your story Shannon! hearing something positive like this really helps. I can see how having all that info can help the doctors. I like how your doctor let you rest when you got to 10 cm. I have heard that is a good thing to let your body do the work, they talked about it in my bir...

Re: Looks like our nightmere is back :(

Glad to hear it is just wisdom teeth though that isn't fun either. I hope you can relax and take it somewhat easy, you have made it very far! And if it makes you feel better I obviously didnt do much prep before my daughter came and we survived. Though we had the 6 weeks she was in the hospital. All...

Re: Looks like our nightmere is back :(

Sorry to hear this! I hope the doctors take you seriously and treat you well this time. I had HELLP with my last pregnancy and my daughter was born at 28 weeks (1 lb 14 oz). She is a pretty normal 2.5 yr old now, so 30 weeks and 3 lbs is good! I went in to the hospital on a Friday night with pressur...

Re: VBAC

Yep there will be no induction, they won't use pit on a vbac. I have heard of docs who will though, but I wouldn't want that. Caryn- good point that our bodies do what they will do! I have been told that I can move or stand with these things in, but not far from the bed. I think what I was trying to...

VBAC

I was hoping someone who had a VBAC cam give me some insight. First pregnancy was HELLP with my daughter being delivered via c section at 28 weeks. We are so lucky that she is a healthy 2.5 year old now. I'm 30 weeks pregnant with a second girl (due 9/16)! According to the high risk doctors that I s...

Re: 24-hour urine test at only 14 weeks?

I talked to my dr about the 24 hour collection this week (I turned mine in Wed). They told me they want the baseline and that once they get this level if it doubles at any point that would mean I had pre-eclampsia. Though I think that means with other symptoms going on too. I'm not really excited ab...

Re: Quad Screening levels

Any news from the doc? I had my blood drawn for a quad screen today and turend in my 24 hour collection jug... So, I'm awaiting those results. I'm kind of excited that these tests might give us an indicator, but also worried that it might come back abnormal. So far my pressures are low and everythin...

Re: Nerves...quad screening

I didn't have the quad screen with my daughter (HELLP/delivery at 28 weeks). I have the quad screen next Wednesday and it makes me nervous too! If it comes back abnormal I wonder what kind of crazy that will induce in me?!

Re: Roll Call: How's everybody doing?

How far along are you? I am 14+2 weeks What's your history with Pre-e and/or HELLP? I had HELLP a few days before 28 weeks. Went to hospital on a Friday night, and my daughter was born Monday morning, so we got in the 48 hours of steroids. We were at a great hospital, and my daughter is a healthy 2 ...
