Re : Has there been a huge increase in preeclampsia?

<r>Emily,<br/> <br/> You know, I doubt I'd still be on this forum 4 years later if I didn't find a certain connection here that I didn't find elsewhere. Some people can suprise you and be genuinely understanding and supportive, but having "been there" means you can connect on a completely different ...

Re : Hi, new here!

<t>Yep, ditto to everything! Congratulations on your decisions and I hope that all goes well for you on each front. I too would suggest a preconception consult. I just had one with a great doctor, though we don't plan to try for a while. We're in the middle of an addition/remodel that'll be followed...

Re : Hi! (updated with official wieghts!)

<t>It's good to hear from you! The pics of the girls are great. There are a fair number of PF members in Washington, so you'll be in good company. And, some of us even fly in to be seen by the infamous...er, famous?! LOL Dr. E, so depending on where you go (if you do end up moving), we might get to ...

Re : Home schooling. To do it or not to do it?

<t>How awful, Jenn, really! Poor Jai. I think your gut instinct will help you know what is right for your child. I personally find resonance with Paiget's stages of development and beleive that in the first stages (up to around 8 years old or so, depending on the child), children need reinforcement ...

Re : Gallbladder removal while nursing?

<t>I had a fiend who nursed straigh through. No idea what pain meds and anesthesia they used on her, but she is quite medicine conscious when it comes to her kids.<br/> <br/> For multiple reasons, I stopped bfing just before I had my gallbladder out. I had to stay overnight at the hospital for mine,...

Re : New to This

<t>I wanted to extend a welcome to you as well, Julie! I second the suggestion Caryn made. I don't know if your GP's and our GP's are similarly trained, but I too would suggest a perinatologist or someone who specializes in preeclamptic pregnancies. While I was treated by a GP in my first pregnancy ...

Re : AFI in early gestations

<r>I was at my lowest a 6, diagnosed around 29 weeks gestation. Can't-sit-up bedrest increased mine by a few points just over the weekend, so I didn't have to be shipped out of town for monitoring/delivery. <br/> <br/> Here's a link to a past discussion on the forums about oligo (what is diagnostic,...
