Re : Preeclampsia & Cerebral Palsy...Connection?

<r>CP is caused from Lack of O2 to the brain, right?! It seems it would make sense to me that HBP while pregnant causes a lower blood flow to the baby, hence, lower O2 levels. IS this right?!

Re : What do you ladies think about this letter we

<r>As a mommy of 4, 2 being hospitalized with RSV. The letter is GREAT and such an wonderful way of informing your loved ones.

Re : Preeclampsia & Cerebral Palsy...Connection?

<r>Anna was a 37 weeker. She was considered full term. She just does not put any weight on her legs. Nor is she even close to sitting up on her own. Even when she is on her belly, she is 'swimming'. Which is a concern.<br/> <br/> Sherry Fisher (28)<br/> DH: Bill (35)<br/> Proud Mama to:<br/> #1) Ale...

My OB also checked to see that my protein went back to normal after my first one. <br/> <br/> Anyone know if thats common..to check protein levels after delivery?! They didn't do that with the others, of course I didn't have really high protein e...

Re : Blood pressure + illness = higher numbers?

<r>Hi Jenn,<br/> <br/> Sorry that your are feeling so awful! UGH! Hope you feel better soon! With me, it seemed to raise when I was sick.
