Re : feet...

Re : REALLY could use some advice

In your shoes I would get a MFM/Peri (high risk OB) to manage my care. They should be more willing to keep you a med that works for you and have more experience caring for chronic hypertensives.

Re : POST PARTUM ISSUES

Thanks for the update. As others have said it can take months for the protein to go away completely after birth.

Re : Preemies weight at two years?

Randall will be 2 in a couple of weeks and was 22lbs 6oz today at the doctors(we were there for an ear infection). My doctor never worries about his weight either and always says he is following a curve.
