Re : Grief and Loss Support/Calling Crafters....

I was going to ask if you had patterns or even just a picture of what some of these items are. I should be knitting and sewing, but of course I am online! LOL

Re : O'Reilly claims that there is no death from preg.

Okay, well...I had to respond too. Nothing quite so well-written or informative, but one would hope he would have the good sense and compassion to see his error in this.

Anne, your response moved me to tears.

Re : Anyone dealt with a CF test?

<t>SueAnn, are you sure that diet is for diarhea and not for nausea? It was suggested to me in pregnancy for nausea with no connection to the southern end of my digestive tract.

Re : Am I doing the right thing - nervous, excited !!

<t>Not I, but best of luck with your procedures and getting pregnant! Were any of your other children IVF (sorry if that isn't the correct term for what you're doing)? I can imagine the "it's starting" sensation is a bit nerve-wracking and exciting at the same time! We all go through the "Oh no, wha...

Re : got my results :-)

<t>Oh, never had a "low ferratin level" to my knowledge. Isn't that low iron? Being anemic can cause similar issues to my understanding. Are you treating the low ferratin by diet or with medication? I'm sure you can get all kinds of related experience from ladies on the boards in that regard --anemi...

Re : got my results :-)

<t>I don't remember what's been going on for you, but I too had heart palipitations and a fast heart rate. It seemed to show most in my second pregnancy and then kind stuck around afterward, though to a lessened extent. I too had cardiac testing (labs, cardiac echo, EKG, holter monitor, etc) durring...
