Re : Anyone doing IVF?

<t>Hi Lucy,<br/> <br/> Sorry that you're feeling so terrible. If I were in your shoes, I would definitely call your infertility doctor and tell him/her what's going on. I did not experience that kind of pain after my egg retrieval or embryo transfer. Anything out of the ordinary grogginess (with egg...

Re : Anyone doing IVF?

<t>Hello Trish,<br/> <br/> Please continue to find comfort in the fact that you do know what IVF entails and what the ups/downs/possibilities are. Please find comfort also that you have your "ducks lined up in a row," so to speak, by having consulted with specialists you trust before you TTC. I'm re...

Re : Anyone doing IVF?

<t>Hi Trish,<br/> <br/> I'm so glad to hear that you are confident in your perinatologist and that your RE knows more about you than anyone. Hopefully together, they can help you not only get pregnant, but have a long, healthy pregnancy with a healthy baby(ies).<br/> <br/> I did give birth to boy/gi...

Re : Anyone doing IVF?

<t>Hello Trish,<br/> <br/> My husband and I went through IVF to get pregnant, and are planning a FET (frozen embryo transfer) sometime in the future. <br/> <br/> With a history of previous preeclampsia and infertility, what would be ideal is managing your care with a team consisting of you and your ...

Re : Atenolol and breastfeeding

<t>Hi Stacy,<br/> <br/> Ditto. Getting the "OK" green light and peace of mind from experts whom you trust is key.<br/> <br/> On a personal note, my IBCLCs, perinatologist, and twins' pediatrician all gave the green light to breastfeed on 100mg of atenolol daily. No adverse effects because of the ate...

Re : Atenolol -- an informal poll on outcomes

<t>Hello Rosalinda,<br/> <br/> I didn't see a general cardiologist. The chronic hypertension was diagnosed by my reproductive endocrinologist/infertility doctor, who referred me to his colleague (a perinatologist). It was the peri who prescribed the atenolol based on the fact that I had high cardiac...

Re : Atenolol -- an informal poll on outcomes

<t>* At what stage did you start taking it? Preconception<br/> * Were you hypertensive at that time? Yes<br/> * What side effects did you experience? Blood pressure readings below 120/80. Tachycardia alleviated. Cardiac output at desirable range.<br/> * How much were you taking every day? Daily: 100...

Re : Hypertensive before pregnancy

<t>Welcome, Summer,<br/> <br/> The best advice already offered was to find yourself a high-risk OB (perinatologist). I'm in agreement with that, finding yourself the right doctor will at the very least, give you peace of mind.<br/> <br/> Being someone diagnosed with chronic hypertension myself, I ca...

Re : anyone get high b/p controlled by meds, but not PE

<t>Hi Rebecca,<br/> <br/> My high blood pressure was controlled by meds (atenolol) and I did not get preeclampsia while I was pregnant. Delivered my twins at 38.4 weeks.<br/> <br/> Sorry that none of us can predict the future, but vigilance and teaming up with a doc that you trust, can hopefully giv...

Re : High BP but no underlying disorders anyone?

<t>Hi Linda,<br/> <br/> I'm also one of the chronic hypertensive girls, no clotting issues. Agreeing with Fiona, I also think that very close monitoring, by a perinatologist that you trust with your whole heart and gut, is key to having peace of mind with a subsequent pregnancy.<br/> <br/> In my cas...
