Re : Earliest diagnosis of PE

I was diagnosed at 18 weeks with my third and put on modified bedrest then. My others were all diagnosed later. My last baby I was only diagnosed a week before I was induced. No time for bedrest unless you count being in the hospital.

Re : why are Dr's so dumb?

<t>Well, I also have type 1 diabetes and a hemorrhage in my eye that they are watching for retina detachment. I just figured they would be better to go to since my opthamologist is in the same hospital and it's a level 4. My peri from before even mentioned, with my last pregnancy, that I could see t...

Re : Magnesium Sulfate

<t>Are they sure it was from the mag? My liver was like that when I developed HELLP syndrome.<br/> Mag makes you feel awful and they consider it normal side effects. I couldn't stay awake, began throwing up, had hot and cold flashes and a headache. They also said it wouldn't do anything to the baby....

Re : How long on oscillator?

<t>My 28 weeker was on the oscillator for about a week. I had the steroid shots before she was born and they attempted to give her surfactant and take her off before but she didn't handle it well and went back on for a few days.<br/> <br/> All preemies act differently. My 32 weeker had more breathin...

Re : I am new and posted elsewhere...

<t>I'm sorry you are going through this. I don't know anything about the disorders you mentioned but I wanted to offer a little hope. I had a friend who's son had severe IUGR. She, however, carried him to term (38 weeks)and although small, he did relatively well. He was just under 4lbs at birth but ...

why are Dr's so dumb?

<t>Ok, not all Dr's, just the ones I keep ending up seeing.<br/> <br/> I had my first perinatology appt today. I thought they would at least do something like take my bp or listen to me or something but instead, we just sat in a room, the Dr. came in, took my history and proceeded to tell me that he...

Re : Scared

<t>Maisha,<br/> What can I say. I'm right there with you. After my last baby, I didn't think I'd ever be doing this again. I am just trying to be very proactive. Any signs or symptoms and I will call the Dr. No chances for problems. I'll also be voicing all my concerns and worries to the peri tomorr...

Re : Needing affirmation, was "? about BP at home"

<t>I would change the batteries as well. I've had that happen and it was the batteries. Also, If I get a weird reading, I take it on one arm, then the other than back on the original arm again. If they are all totally off, it is usually the batteries. If they are all consistent, then I call the ob.<...

Re : Question: fetal movements

<t>I just realized today that I am definately feeling "kicks" and not just flutters and I'm only 11 weeks. I feel them the most when I've just eaten, if I sit in my chair and lean forward a little so my tummy is squished. I don't think the baby likes it and I got 3 distinct kicks or somersaults or s...
