Re: Milestones Continued

New milestone for me! Yesterday I was 25 weeks, which is the first time I had a high blood-pressure reading and was diagnosed with PE in my last pregnancy. By contrast, everything is fine at the moment (my BP this morning was 104/65). We had a bit of a scare over Thanksgiving—there were 3 days whe...

Re: Anyone had VERY early preeclampsia? Trying or tried agai

I had mild PE at 23 weeks that progressed rapidly to severe PE/HELLP with delivery at 25 weeks last time. My doctors said I was at increased risk for recurrence since it developed so early, but lower risk since I don't have any of the underlying conditions (hypertension, weight issues) that tend to ...

Re: How long did you wait to TTC after loss, classical incis

I was told that to allow the uterus time to heal from the classical incision, it's best to space deliveries by 18 months (so, wait 9 months, then start trying). But my OB also said, heck, you're 37, if you don't want to wait that long, it's not a big deal. In the end, we waited about 8 months, and i...

Re: Baby Due in March 2013

Just checking in to see how everyone is doing, so... How's everyone doing? I've made it to 20 weeks (yay) and have now officially entered the Period In Which My Doctors Worry. Way back, my MFM said that 20-28 weeks was when they'd be watching me like a hawk, and here we are. I saw her on Wednesday, ...

Re: Baby Due in March 2013

Sending hugs and support to all of you with BP concerns... I'm doing okay at the moment--we just had a scary week after positive first-trimester screening results (although my MFM was surprised since the ultrasound looked good). Anyway, given my age (37), she recommended this new MaterniT21 test--a ...

Re: Baby Due in March 2013

Dear knhowell, I've never heard of such a test! It seems pretty weird to give you odds like that (which are bound to upset you!) from a nonstandard test; my quick Google just now didn't bring up any information about it... I hope for your sake it's a lot of fuss over nothing. I go in next week for m...

Re: Baby Due in March 2013

Great to hear from all of you, and thanks for the welcome—it helps that we're all going through this together. Having seen my doctor, I'm now officially due March 20. The super-frustrating thing was that my nerves made my blood pressure way above normal—I was 110/70 at home this morning, and 132...

Re: Baby Due in March 2013

Hi, newbie posting, but I'm in the same boat as you. Our son was born at 26 weeks last summer (after a quick jump from mild pre-e to Stage IV HELLP in the course of 4 days) but he only made it to 2 months old (late-onset NEC). Now I've just found out I'm pregnant again. I'm probably due March 15-20 ...
