Re: Preeclamsia testing

Can someone clarify this-the test is done once you are pregnant correct? There is nothing out there that will tell you before you are pg that you will get it again correct. I am hoping for a crystal ball that will tell me IF I will get it again. That is the biggest hold up with my DH as he won't do ...

Re: Bottles and Pacifiers

Mine loved the Soothie paci from the hospital and the plain old Gerber bottles and nipples. That is what he used in the hospital so that is what I continued to use at home. Good luck!

Re: First time mom with baby in NICU

My son was 27 6/7. We spent 3 longs months in the NICU. Take lots of pictures. I looked at the album I put together every time I pumped. I tried to be there when they did rounds so I could hear what the doctors were saying first hand instead of hearing it from his nurse and it was my time to ask que...

Good point Sam. I have no real words for her but just sadness. Hugs and love are the best support! Thanks.

Re: What do I say/What can I do

Thanks ladies. She didn't have PE, she just went into labor early, contractions started at 22 weeks and she lasted about a month on meds and bed rest. I like the idea of doing the dinner thing-maybe just making a few meals and taking them to her; gift cards to restaurants also came to mind. I know t...

What do I say/What can I do

Hi ladies. I need some advice and don't know which place to post so I am posting here. I met my friend 4 years ago in the NICU. Our boys were there for 3 months and were crib side neighbors. Our families became very close and we were great preemie support for each other and we all remained great fri...

Re: Problems producing milk from magnesium

Sorry to say I was a dairy cow. I was on mag 3 times, prior to delivery, during delivery, and a few days after for pp pe. I had tons of milk and pumped exclusively for 18 months. However, everyone is different.

Molars-Updated

Hi ladies. When do toddlers get their last set of molars? Luke is going to be 4 in December (should have been born in March) and all weekend is complaining that his mouth hurts and has hardly eaten. He keeps holding his chin. Advil seems to help. I put my finger in his mouth and the back gum feels h...

Re: Fertility Meds Question

I just posted something similar to you other question. I did 2 months of Clomid for my son. We were trying for another child and did 4 months of femara. I liked femara better because there were less side effects-weight gain and nausea were the 2 main ones I suffered with on Clomid. Then in desperati...
