Unsure of how to proceed with bed rest....

<t>Hi all. I am 27 weeks in the morning. I know this site is about to shut down for a week, but hopefully the week will be uneventful. I am having some issues with what to do about bed rest. <br/> <br/> When I first went on bed rest 2 weeks ago, I had tons of people saying how they were going to hel...

Re : work leave when pg with pre-e/hellp

<t>I don't think there is anything you can be guarenteed legally for this case. I had the same issue with my first pregnancy. I was hospitalized for 2 weeks before having my baby and then my son was in the NICU for 6 more weeks, that left me less than 4 weeks with him at home before I had to return ...

Re : clomid and PE

<t>I don't think so, at least I have never read anything about this. I don't believe your body would prevent you from becoming pregnant in order to prevent pre-e since it is the placenta that is the issue? I could be off here. The exception would possibly be when you have hypertension, it can cause ...

How much is too much fluctuation?

<t>Any one know how much fluctuation is too much? I plan to discuss this with my doctor at my next appt, but it isn't until next week. I thought my BPs would start increasing a lot, but they have been alright. The thing that concerns me is how much fluctuation I get in a day. I start the day about 1...

Re : Check-in please!

Wow there really are a lot of us at the same point right now, end of the 20's. It is a stressful point because it feels so close but still so far away to have a healthy baby.

Re : Need Help with Question about subsequent pregnancy

<t>I am in the same situation as you, I wouldn't recognize a contraction if I hit me over the head. This is my 3rd pregnancy and I have yet to have one so I am no help there. For the BP's, I probably wouldn't call yet. Just keep watching today and tomorrow. If they increase any more, I would call. I...

Re : Check-in please!

<t>1) How far along are you? 26 weeks today<br/> <br/> 2) How am I feeling? like garbage. I am on a lot of medication, maxed on 3 bp meds, and they make me very sick. I am worried about not making it far enough. I am worried about my BP and the baby all the time. I just want to make it at least 1 mo...

Re : How am I doing?

<t>It sounds like your babies size is good. My son was born at 30+6 and weighed 2lbs 13 oz and I know he was right about where he should be for that gestation. THe protein isn't terrible, waht you need is another protein to see how fast it is going up. Do you have hypertension outside of pregnancy? ...

Re : what causes pitting adema and when to buy premie

<t>As far as premie outfits, don't go crazy yet. If you do have your baby early, they will be in the NICU for a while so you will have time to go get some after he/she is born if you need them. Depending on how early they are, they probably won't be in clothes for a while. If the baby isn't that ear...
