Re : Joshua 6 months (now pregnant again)

<r>I just wanted to add a congratulations, Shelly! My situation is very different from yours, but I too am expecting a "surpise" despite protection. A bit of a shock! I'm sure the same holds true for you --perhaps doubly so. I don't know about mothers of preemies, but I do know there are a great num...

Re : Feeling frustrated and silly

<t>I thought I'd add something about "feeling silly"...blame it on the hormones! <br/> <br/> I had a friend that started bawling on the drive to our house (while pregnant, obviously) because she saw a muffler on the side of the road and felt sorry for whomever was driving around without it. Now, com...

Re : First OB appt.

<t>You know, in all honesty, it's totally up to you! <br/> <br/> I didn't push for it in either of my pregnancies (there aren't any within 500 miles anyway), and my pregnancies both ended well. I then went for a preconception consult with an expert before this pregnancy. That was, IMO, very worthwhi...

Re : side effects with bp med

<t>I'd call and talk to the doctor about it. It may be that for you, this is a constant side effect of this particular medication and a switch to another type of medicine might alleviate those side effects. OR, it could be that you need a slight dosage change, as sometimes your BP falling too low mi...

Re : AKEMT - Catherine

<t>I know, Sabrina. LOL We'd thought we'd see how far the adoption stuff got, finish the addition/remodel on this house, sell it, and build the next house before trying for the next kiddo. The timing, adoption and pregnancy-wise might work out better this way (since we're STILL waiting on the homest...

Re : AKEMT - Catherine

<t>LOL Thanks Sabrina! I wanted to wait but didn't at the same time...this was my non-compromise! LOL <br/> <br/> This pregnancy truly is a suprise (we'd planned on waiting about a year), so we don't even have a due date yet! My first OB appointment is next Tuesday, so we'll get a date then. It look...

Re : Feeling frustrated and silly

<t>I can relate to feeling trapped at home without outside contact! <br/> <br/> Honestly, I think people tend to be too busy to think of what isn't out in the open and don't take the time to try to be considerate. They probably thought of it like any other play date and figured you wouldn't be all t...

Re : placental blood flow

<t>It is my understanding that the placenta doesn't take over all of its functioning untill after 12 weeks, and I thought, likely after 14 as well...but I don't actually know when and can't back that up! It's just my memory and it can be wrong. You can always ask your doctor about it and let them kn...

Re : volume control is where on a 5 month old?

Re : Which BP reading is right??

<t>Just wanted to let you know that I have one arm that was always significantly higher than the other (I should try to remember which!) in both of my pregnancies and we always went with the higher one. Sometimes I did have to "request" the OB nurses at the hospital take it in the correct arm (while...
