Re : L&D today normal but what if...

<t>Welcome to the forum Natalie. Congratulations on your pregnancy. There is something you mention in your story that strikes a chord with me and my experience. I had PE and HELLP at 24 weeks and delivered at 26 weeks. I went from having trace protein and elevated bp with totally normal labs to HELL...

First Postpartum visit w/ MFM

<t>I finally met with an MFM and discussed my history and a possible future pregnancy. She told me that I had a 50% chance of getting PE again (even with my adrenal tumor removed) and that it would effect to some degree either my brain,kidneys or liver resulting in risk for stroke, kidney failure or...

Re : experiences with very premature / disabled child

<t>One other thing to mention, I would not consider another pregnancy without having access to our son's same neonatologist again. His personal sucess rate with micropreemies was much higher than the national averages, as was our nicu's too. Knowing now about all of the things that occurr in the NIC...

Re : experiences with very premature / disabled child

<t>I'd like to echo what Kristine said. Being born very premature and small doesn't necessarily mean disabled. My son was born 1 lb 13oz at 26+1 weeks and today he is 1 years old and totally healthy physically and developmentally. It has certainly been a long, hard road getting here (3 months in NIC...

Re : Transitioning to Finger Foods! Help!

<t>Thanks ladies. Good to hear we are not alone. I also think our ped is expecting a little too much for his corrected age. (His one year is coming up this weekend!) He will just be turning 8.5 adjusted on Sunday and most stage 3 is for at least 9month olds. I am trying to relax about it, but I will...

Re : Another piece of the puzzle

<t>Hi Kristen,<br/> I am so sorry for what you have been through. I can't imagine the pain you must be experiencing. Welcome to the Forum. It has helped me so much to make sense of what happened to me. As far as the adrenal tumor, I would strongly suggest you get copies of your medical records from ...

Transitioning to Finger Foods! Help!

<t>Our ped says Isaac should be feeding himself finger foods now so we have been working with him on this and after much effort and lots of gagging, he loves to feed himself the melt in your mouth puffs, but he won't take stage 3 foods or any other finger foods without gagging and vomiting. And I me...
