Re : Keep on Truckin'

<t>Congratulations on being at 32 1/2 weeks! And I'm glad to hear that Molly is moving around a lot. That is very comforting to know that your child is moving around, enjoying being in-utero. If I were you (because I enjoyed this so much), I'd try to enjoy every movement of your baby inside your wif...

Re : Assistance during bedrest

<t>Glad to hear that everyone is doing so well. Sorry to hear about the chronic high blood pressure that your wife has. I'm not a doctor, but my wife is living proof that what the high-risk obstetrician said is true: Norlisa was on the blood pressure medication atenolol throughout her pregnancy, did...

Re : Isaac is here

<t>Glad to hear that everything is going so well with both your wife and your son. <br/> <br/> To me, my wife being on blood pressure medication is a "good" thing in the sense that there is something that can be and that is being done to keep the blood pressure under control. But it is a great feeli...

Re : 400+ Protein in urine nothing else

<r>Concerned Father,<br/> <br/> First off, the official disclaimer...I am not a doctor and don't play one on the forum. My comments are limited to personal experience and information obtained from my wife's medical care. I know from experience that you can't help but worry when you're wife is pregna...

Re : Keep on Truckin'

<t>It's much easier said than done: just please try to stay alert and aware, you & your wife have been doing a great job. You're armed with knowing what the signs and symptoms are, and have an OB that you trust. Please know that you are not alone; post when you need to. I was worried constantly ...

Re : Isaac is here

<t>Congratulations on the birth of your son! Glad to hear that it all went well; being there for the birth of your child is one of life's most wonderful experiences.

Re : What do you think?

<t>In Norlisa and my case, the atenolol was properly administered and monitored by a highly competent perinatololgist, and was a highly effective prescription. We have no personal experience with the aldomet, but have heard similar stories, that it is widely prescribed. I may seem adamant about this...

Re : Update and questions

<t>So glad to hear that Sam is doing well.<br/> <br/> Although my wife and I did not have issues with prematurity, we did have issues with post-partum preeclampsia, one week and five weeks after delivery. I'm glad that you're going to be seeing her doctor soon, and please tell the doctor any concern...

Re : Try this again...

<t>"Knowledge is power," probably the big difference is knowing what steps you should be taking and what you should be looking out for to "beat" preeclampsia (that is, knowing when to call the doctor). I'm very happy to hear that your new OB is taking you and your wife seriously and giving you that ...

Re : Still here and Pregnant!

<t>Wonderful to hit that 36 week mark, ain't it? Glad to hear that you're still going like the "energizer bunny."<br/> <br/> (PLEASE don't quote me on exacts here, this is the best that I remembered it after being up all night with my wife in labor.) Norlisa got put on magnesium sulfate about five o...
