Re: Pre-E Without Hypertension

How are you feeling now? I developed HELLP without reaching the diagnostic cut off for high blood pressure. It is unusual, but there are several of us who have had similar experiences. The only good thing about HELLP is that it is easy to rule out with blood work. How did your blood work from the do...

Re: Dealing with PTSD after 27 weeker born

Congrats on your first night of sleep!! That is a big deal, as is reducing your stress level a bit. I am glad to help. I stayed active in the forums because it makes me feel better to be even a little bit helpful to women who are going through this now. This group definitely talked me down off the l...

Re: Dealing with PTSD after 27 weeker born

The emotional fallout from PE is awful. I remember feeling so disconnected from everything, almost like I was watching it on TV. I knew exactly what I needed to do, but it took me a long time to make myself do it. It is tough when you know what is going on and still can't kick it. I hope you can fin...

Re: Quadrant Pain and spots in vision

Hi and Welcome to the forums! It is hard not to get worried about potential PE symptoms after having dealt with it once. Your symptoms seem a bit unusual, but we have lots of women on the forums with unusual presentations of PE. How do you feel? Any headache, nausea, or feeling bad? Can you call you...

Re: Dealing with PTSD after 27 weeker born

Hi Lynne - Welcome to the forums. It is tough when you understand why you are going through all of this and still can't figure out how to get through it. I have been there, along with many other women on the forum. This is really hard. It stinks to feel like your body failed your baby by kicking her...

Re: Downton Abbey

It was harder than I expect to watch it. My MIL spoiled the plot for me because she watched in the UK last fall and was worried that I would freak out. In hindsight, I am glad she did that. Sybil's comment about lying back to watch the stars was pretty disturbing since I remember having that thought...

Re: Downton Abbey episode

I couldn't find a thread for the Downton Abbey episode to talk about what we saw...is there another one? If not...whoa. This hit way too close to home. As soon as I heard Sybil complain of headaches and swelling, I knew. So heartbreaking, but maybe it will help educate some mothers (and caregivers)...

Re: Downton Abbey episode

I thought about starting one in the Ask the Experienced forum, but this is probably the better place for it. I was glad that my Mother-in-law had spoiled the plot for me after her trip to England this fall. It would have been harder to watch if I hadn't known it was coming. That said, the pigheaded ...

Re: My sister is in intensive care, I need your info/tips,pl

I am really sorry to hear about your sister. HELLP Is horrible, and we will be thinking of her and your family. I am not a doctor or medical professional, so be careful with this advice. You should get some better input from the medical staff at the hospital. I wish that I had good statistics to giv...
