Re : Husband needs advice

<t>There's a few things that I would recommend. <br/> <br/> First, make sure that he is comfortable with the doctor, hopefully one knowledgeable in hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. My wife and I had a great perinatologist that I trusted. He was very knowledgable regarding preeclampsia and took t...

Re : Visitors to hospital during pre-eclampsia

<t>Steve,<br/> <br/> I'm sure that it is slightly different from hospital to hospital, caretaker to caretaker, but basically when my wife got her post-partum preeclamspia, the visiting nurse told my wife that visitors, excitement, and movement could cause her pressures to go up, and when she was adm...

Re : can someone inform my dh

<t>Leveraging off of hfwarner3 and anathor21's responses, <br/> get your husband<br/> involved in the process. Men are triggered to fix <br/> things that are<br/> broken or need to take action during a process. So, <br/> with that said I'd<br/> suggest that you do let your husband know how he <br/> ...

Re : Assistance during bedrest

<t>Congratulations on the new pregnancy. It is a very <br/> exciting time but,<br/> because of the potential for pregnancy induced <br/> hypertension, it is also<br/> stressful. You, in a way, are in a good position, <br/> though. You know<br/> what this disease is and what to look out for. I'm <br/...

Re : why is my dh like this?

<t>Anathor21 has probably hit the crux of the problem, men are "fixers" and require something tangible that they can do. I would recommend that you work with your husband to clarify his role in all of this and how his contribution will help in the final results. As long as his role is "moral support...

Re : summary of medical lectures on pre-e - April '05

<t>I read through the article, and while I appreciate all of the definitions, I find some of the advice given highly contrary to the very effective use of beta-blockers (in particular, atenolol), during my wife's pregnancy. The beta-blocker did prevent the preeclampsia during pregnancy, and we had n...

Re : Keep on Truckin'

<t>It seems consistent with what our doctor told us: as long as it was safer for the babies to be inside their mom, then he would leave the babies there, otherwise once the babies were healthy and things changed that they would be healthier outside of their mom, he would deliver them.<br/> <br/> We'...

Re : Keep on Truckin'

<t>Hi Eddie,<br/> <br/> Unfortunately I can't give you specifics about the c-section, but believe that 36 weeks is fine. To the extent that they can leave the baby in until 37 weeks, probably better, but I am assuming that your doctor has a reason for the timing. I would encourage you to discuss dir...

Re : 400+ Protein in urine nothing else

<t>Thanks for the update. If I'm doing my math correctly, your wife should be a little over 37 weeks at this point. In my non-medical opinion, it's great that she is still pregnant.<br/> <br/> Just out of curiousity, did your wife see a maternal-fetal specialist? And what is his plan to lower your w...
