Re: Having a second baby after HELLP

This is my third time trying to reply to this post, lets see if it goes through this time... lol Look at Caryns signature for some of the studies. It used to be thought that having the same partner would decrease risk. However, the correlation of recurrance seems to be linked more to length between ...

Re: So many unanswered questions

I am so sorry for your lose. I had PE/HELLP with DS1. Unlike you, I did have high BP. My BP slowly crept up, but my midwife was unconcerned. She said 5% of women get PE and its not a big deal, and gave me a list of symptoms to look for. I never had any other symptom. At 34 weeks, she sent me to L&D ...

Re: Weight Loss Buddies Fall 2010 Week 3

Can I 'join' too? I used to be super fit... running marathons, competing in triathalons... generally a size 6. Not super skinny or anything, but althletic. Miles is almost 4. I lost most of the weight fairly quickly, but never got back 'in shape'. Josh is 14 months old now. It took me much much long...

Re: no maternity insurance, advice? *long post*

To disqualify my advice first, I have always had health insurance (military) and always will (retiring). I am so thankful that I have coverage. First, I think you could make an argument that some tests conducted by the MFM for underlying disorders relate beyond just maternity issues. I'd ask the MFM...

Re: Preeclampsia Basics: Bad Blood

I've had a variety of blood tests, and they came back normal. That said, the reson it's no longer toxemia is because there's more to it than "bad blood". Bad blood is a result of pre-e, not the cause... although some poeple do have risk factors that increase the likelihood. I recommend looking at th...

Re : Baby Aidyn Back in hospital - Growing to hate PE

<r>I'm sorry your dealing with all this! Your BP has improved a lot!<br/> <br/> As far as the bili #s, at 2 weeks he can have higher #s. I remember having Miles checked after we had been home a couple days after he was treated and his bili #s were up. It was explained to me that the older they are, ...

Re : Baby Aidyn Back in hospital - Growing to hate PE

<t>I am so sorry you went through that! {{{HUGS}}} I am glad Aidyn is back home. And I completly understand.<br/> I have a very similiar story. Miles was 4 weeks early due to PE/HELLP. He was healthy, 7 lbs, 6 oz, and came home in 2 days. When we were discharged, the nurse - and us - noticed he was ...

Re : Supplements

<t>I was taking Vit D, Calcium, and fish oil (and prenatals). At my first appointment after getting pregnant with DS#2, the doctor told me to only take pre-natals. <br/> So, ask your doctor. I think most lean away from supplements during pregnancy unless your blood tests show that you are specifical...
