Re : New to PE scared.

<t>Take a deep breath... and try to relax. I know its hard. But you're at a good place (36 weeks) and have a doctor being proactive. My 36 weeker had no NICU time either. <br/> It is extremely frustrating they way they take pressures. Essentially, the laying down shows "if" your body can go lower. I...

Re : Light Are On and I Think I'm Home

<t>Katie,<br/> Glad to hear you feel so much better. I am lucky... my husband is very understanding.<br/> I started taking prozac this year, and it really helped. Work was really mundane for me for a long time, and its now picked up. I think working (and having something to do at work!) really helps...

Re : Low growth percentiles for PIH babies?

<t>Thanks for the update! My second son is just a little younger than your daughter. I did not have PE with him, and he was born larger - 7lbs 16 oz - but he's not even 20 pounds yet at 12 months! lol I worry about the lack of weight gain, but that's what us moms do... His cousin is 26 pounds at 8 m...

Re : Just diagnosed with preeclampsia, UPDATE!!!

<t>I had contractions for several weeks before induction. I initially thought they were just cramps until the nurse told me they were contractions. I don't think they are related to PE at all or make it worse.<br/> My first induction was slow and boring - and not scheduled. I was induced at 36 weeks...

Re : medical records/postpardum

<t>It is never "too late" to go get your 6 week checkup. It will help ensure your health is on the right track, and give you peace of mind. Same with the medical records. Request them in writing. Don't expect to get them at the doctors appointment.<br/> My OB recommended waiting a year before having...

Re : Failure to thrive...

<t>Thanks. My other son Miles is on the low weight side - but he's always been low weight. But Miles was born smaller, and weighed more at a year than Josh does. I think the doctor and I are concerned because he's not gaining weight in accordance with "the curve", and hasn't gained weight in 3 month...

Failure to thrive...

<t>My 1 year old has not gained any weight in the last 3 months. In fact, he's down a couple ounces from 3 months ago. But he eats well. Up until his 1 yr well baby this week, he was drinking 20-30 oz of formula a day, plus 3 meals and 1-2 snacks... the typical diet for an older infant. His foods ha...

Re : Anyone have a successful pregnancy after Pre-e???

<t>Although not as severe, I had PE/HELLP with DS1, induced at 36 weeks. My BP slowly crept up after 20 weeks. I was in great shape when I got pregnant, never had high BP before, and like most, was blindsided by it. With DS2, I was incredibly worried and seen often. The MFM thought I would develop s...
