Re : 9 week appointment-not good

I'm so sorry for your loss. I've had two MCs, one with a D&C and one without, and I much preferred the natural experience.

Re : Question about headache and facial swelling

<t>My facial swelling included my cheeks, lips, and around the eyes. I looked a little like someone with an allergy who'd been stung by a bee. I also had pitting edema in the legs (if I poked my leg, the imprint would hold its shape) and my fingers were so swollen I could hardly bend them. Even my b...

Re : Proteomic profiling of urine identifies PE biomark

Are misfolded proteins something my local lab can test for, or is that still off in the future? It would be so nice to have that much early warning.

Re : Dara update??

It took 6 days for my milk to come in when my DD was in the NICU. I think a traumatic birth experience, prematurity, and mag can all slow the milk transition.

Re : Pulmonary Edema?

<t>I didn't have fluid IN the lungs but had a lot of fluid AROUND the lungs that made it increasingly difficult to breathe. My OB (first time) wrote it off as normal in pregnancy, especially since I'm short and was "running out of room" for a deep breath. I was hospitalized 3 days later.<br/> <br/> ...

Re : Blood Pressure at Home vs. at Docs

A friend of mine would always get high BPs if taken before her weight check. They started doing them at the end of the appointment, after confirming heartbeat and that everything was okay. She had much better numbers then. Maybe a change in routine at the office would help?

Re : Need to make a decision :o/

<t>From the research I've done, in an intervention-free labor and delivery, the risk of a symptomatic scar separation is less than one percent. Catastrophic uterine rupture is just a small percentage of scar separations. The more interventions you have, the higher your risk goes. <br/> <br/> If it w...
