Re : New here! 30 weeks!

Eventually the PIH progressed anyway, but my AFI's went up and stayed up. <br/> <br/> I'm glad they're watching y...

Re : Extreme Nausea

<t>With medications, you'd just have to ask your doctor! I've tried reglan and unisom in my two pregnancies, but I didn't have the problem of it making me sleepy...atleast not noticeably in comparison to the tiredness of pregnancy. <br/> <br/> Basically, as far as food goes, ignore all the well-wish...

Re : protein

<t>The symptoms that Kara wrote above can sometimes be caused by other, less worrysome things --such as pregnancy itself, but when severe and/or in relation to preeclampsia, they are often considered "get thee to a hospital" symptoms. Is your doctor fully aware of all of your symptoms? Have they run...

<t>Everything went amazingly well this weekend! Okay, aside from getting a bit of a sunburn...<br/> <br/> Britt and I were able to meet with Bonnie and Norlisa before my appointment and we had a blast!
