Re: We've made our decision...

Libby- I had the very same list you have, and carried it in my heart, struggling with our decision, for almost 5 years. Even the thought of another pregnancy literally sent me in to panic attacks. After Emma was born at 32 weeks, we had our healthy baby girl. She will be 5 in November. While it's no...

Re: Ok, it's been a few days--so an update! And a few questi

I haven't asked her! I should though! My BP's have been increased as a baseline from my first pregnancy--they used to be like 90's/60's, now I usually run like 110/70's. It's just like I'm driving my self nuts here! I keep thinking ok, fingers crossed we can get to 28 weeks. I know technically viabi...

Re: Feel like my OB's are waiting for me to get worse

I had the same issues with my daughter when she was born. 32 w 1 d. Although I know there are some people out there that are not exactly believers of bed rest helping, I am one of them, as I have seen it help with a lot of people. When my little girl was born--I was like you-my baselines had been in...

Ok, it's been a few days--so an update! And a few questions!

Last week, I was very concerned about my BP etc. Dr ran a 24 hr urine (came back 180) and did blood work (came back fabulous). I'm pretty nervous now because my BP's are so up and down. This morning we were 123/79. (I know that a lot of you would dream to have this pressure, but I am used to/like my...

Re: Question re: heart palpaltations

Just like everyone else--I have palpitations too. I feel like I've always had them but I'm more aware now because I'm so nervous that something might go wrong with this pregnancy! I have had them maybe..6 or so times in the last 22ish weeks-which is a little more than normal. I felt fine and have ha...

Re: Ok. So I need the experts help/advice etc.

Ok-So just took my BP-took it yesterday around 9 am-so figured I'd try to calm down and take it the same time: 104/55 and last nights reading was 123/76. (I know I said I was going to put the cuff away because I felt like it made me over react lol but I can't!) I feel very positive now, almost like ...

Re: Ok. So I need the experts help/advice etc.

OK, so here I sit waiting by the phone for the dreaded phone call. I HATE this. I don't understand WHY in the world I can't just have a normal pregnancy. Does anyone else feel like that? To answer questions: No meds so far, my Dr. is a high risk obgyn, haven't seen an MFM...is it too late? I'm scare...
