Re : 26.5 weeks (sister) questions??

<t>My take on it is that right now, she's not in "real" labor, because there's no cervical change. However if the contractions are left unchecked, it could eventually turn into real labor and you don't want that. Also, the contractions can be hard on the baby. My daughter started to show signs of st...

Re : 26.5 weeks (sister) questions??

<t>I'm so sorry your sister is going through this. I had pre-term labor starting at 24 weeks. I had to have terbutaline pills around the clock; when those didn't work I'd go in for the shots of terbutaline. My contractions were bad and sometimes every 3-5 minutes, but the key is whether there is any...

Re : Early onset PE, New to this-UPDATE

<t>Ashley, <br/> <br/> I'm sorry you're going through this, I know its awful. At about 28 weeks, my blood pressure was 160/90 at the dr's (the last time I had it taken was 4 weeks earlier) and I had noticed swelling at least a week before that, so I'm sure things came on sooner than they were caught...

Re : IUGR Babies and TTC

<t>My daughter was IUGR and I had very low amniotic fluid. I was hospitalized from the moment it was caught (also for PE). I laid on my left side; had oxygen in my nose; and did hydrotherapy, where I would be submerged in a huge bathtub twice a day for 1/2 hour (this was suppose to help the fluid). ...

Re : anyone doing PIO after FET??

<t>Erica - <br/> I had to do the PIO until I was 12 weeks. I tried all that you did and it didn't really help. It seemed to get better after about week 6-7 though. My dr said it's a reaction to the oil, but I remember how incredibly painful those big lumps were! Have you checked out IVFconnections.c...

Re : Sensitive Situations......

<t>First, I have to say that it is very nice of you to be so sensitive. Not all "fertiles" (what those in the infertility world call women who can just get pregnant by having sex with their husbands) would be. It took me a lot of time, heartbreak, and money to finally get and keep my second pregnanc...

Re : Still contracting. :(

<t>Melissa, I was on the stuff at 27 weeks on. I hated the jittery feeling that I got!!! They never stopped the contractions for me, but kept them under control -- but only when I was on bedrest (which for me was in the hospital). I never had any significant cervical change though during my many wee...
