Re : maybe preeclampsia

<t>Just wanted to chime in with some encouragement- my first baby was a 32 weeker, and is a healthy, ACTIVE 2 1/2 year old! Not to say you are going to be delivering right now, but if it were to happen, try not to worry and know that medical care for preemies in 2009 are excellent! Take it day by da...

Re : Going in labor.. questions...

Just wanted to give a little update, I had a terrible night's sleep but when I woke up, back pain and all crampiness was gone! Guess it wasn't labor- or it stopped!

Re : Going in labor.. questions...

<t>Well, I haven't had any contractions to speak of.. my water has not broken, I have not lost a mucus plug, or had any bloody show... so, I don't really see a reason to go right now. But I am kinda curious if this could be 'back labor' or the start of labor. I am scheduled for a c section on Monday...

Going in labor.. questions...

<t>So I was wondering for those of you who have gone into labor without induction... what did it feel like? I have had braxton hicks and to me those feel like when I was induced with pitocin. Harsh and crampy. <br/> <br/> For the last few day I have felt very crampy. Now my back is killing me! I was...

Re : What did shortness of breath feel like?

I am 36.5 weeks and I can't breathe well, but thats because the baby is pushing up on my diaphram/sternum and ribs... I am 5'2. Could this be what is happening to you? It is worse when I lie down also...

My baby is finally coming!

<t><br/> I was in Labor and delivery for about 4 hours on Monday, getting some blood work and monitoring. My bps hit 150/102 (while laying down!) But my labs came back with 'little change' so my OB scheduled the c section for one week later. <br/> <br/> On Monday the 20th! Woo Hoo. I will be 37 week...

Re : Blood Pressure Drop during C-Section

<t>This is such a great topic! I had the same drop with my second c section and am about to have another on Monday! (woo-hoo). I had pih. My bp also dropped to about 80/30. They did not act concerned though. It rebounded some. I did not need to continue with ANY bp meds pp. I did not think to ask if...
