Re : Appointment with peri yesterday

<t>I'm catching this in the middle but just wanted to share a story I read this morning in our local paper. It was about a couple who couldn't have a baby and they got a serrogate....her best friend. It really was a touching story. When they were having difficulties with getting pregnant and carryin...

Re : gut feeling

<t>I myself just didn't act like a typical mom waiting to have a baby. I was excited, but I felt so hesitent to be too excited. I also knew I was going to go early--so I had all of my work ready and left everynight as though I wouldn't come back. At 36 weeks I was admitted and my son was born--I had...

Re : Thinking of TTC and so scared

<t>Welcome. I also am fairly new here-I haven't posted much, mainly just a lurker. I know how you are feeling and actually we are currently ttc. It is totally normal to feel like this--I've read and read and read many posts that have started the same way. Some choose not to take that leap and some d...

Re : Here we go-TTC-will need some support

<t>Thank you. You know the hardest thing is that it seems like nobody thinks it is a big deal. Everyone just assumes it wont happen again-that is irritating to me. I really try and not dwell on it, but certainly cannot forget it either. I think that maybe people just don't understand PE and HELLP an...

Here we go-TTC-will need some support

<t>I posted here awhile ago-my first pregnancy ended w/me having HELLP and my son being born at 36 weeks with trisomy 13 mosaic. (we didn't know of his condition before birth) My son is doing very well and so we've decided to get preg. again...or should I say we are going to try. <br/> <br/> Part of...

protien rechecked after preg.

<t>My son was born 2 years ago. I had HELLP syndrome at 36.5 weeks. I have not had any issues related to HELLP since but just was wondering. <br/> Do you typically have your protein levels rechecked after the birth of your child? I ask just because I had extremely high numbers as far as protein and ...

Re : What is typical for this procedure?

Boy I think I'd be complaining to the hospital. (and I'm not one to complain much) That seems like A LOT of pokes. Did they give you any reason? Was the baby moving a lot? Were they doing it under ultra sound? I would question it!
Sorry you had to go through it.

appointment

<t>I had a pre-conception appointment and talked to my OB about my chances of having whatever I had. My platelets were going down and had LOTS of protien in urine-with high blood pressure. She said it was HELLP--is that correct if you only have one of the H-El-LP? <br/> I asked about the need to che...

Re : Is there a cheap source for urine test strips?

I just checked and you can get them on ebay....not certain if you are an ebayer-but I buy things on there from time to time-sometimes there are medical supply stores that sell stuff on there. Just a thought.
