Re : Question of the Day: PE and infertility

<t>Baby #1 we got pregnant the first month and baby #2 we got pregnant the second month of trying - we know how lucky we are!!! At my OB the other day I saw a flyer for the UW doing some sort of survey on moms that have had Pre-e (and those that did not for a control group) to do a a study on insuli...

Re : How many women here had a c-section due to Pre e

<t>I got PE at 37 1/2 weeks, was induced that day and had a vaginal delivery. The epidural did help bring bp down, and did the mag - since I was induced the contractions were pretty fast and furious. My OB always said that there is always a chance of a c-section until the shoulders are out. I always...

Re : no-one will listen

<t>Please go see an OB right away - they have so much more experience in this - be sure that you are taken seriously. Being stressed will not keep you bps high - it is not your fault for taking your measurements. If there was protein something could be going on. Just make sure that you are heard and...

Re : 13.5 weeks, high bp readings, doctor away

<t>I am sorry that I do not have any answers for you. I would call the OB that you talked with back and explain that you are weary of taking meds right now and ask if there would be harm in waiting until Monday when your OB gets back. Find a nice nurse to talk to, they are the ones that seem to real...

Re : survey on cod liver oil

<t>I have not taken it, but I am curious about why you ask, I took it while a kid (my mom is Norwegian, so that is natural) and she has my dd taking it (she loves it and asks for more). I did read a study that was done, where mothers taking it had kids that scored higher on their IQ tests.<br/> <br/...

Re : Thanks, everyone!

<t>I have not changed health care providers, but have read about many women who have and have been very happy about the situation. My opinion is that I want to be with the person who has the most knowledge - not someone who stresses you out. Do what is best for you, let them worry about their schedu...

Re : Searching for information

<t>I am sorry, I don't have any info for you, I just wanted to say that the internet can be a scary place to find info - I would call your docs office and see if they can refer you to some site for more info. I will be interested to read what you learn. Good luck to you.<br/> <br/> Joy<br/> Kira 3-1...

Re : rapid heartbeat

<t>Ah, I am so there with you. I hated the way my heart beat during my last pregnancy. I mentioned it to my OB this time and she said that it could be a sign of what is to come, if it abnormally beating fast and hard, but that it is a regular pregnancy symptom as well, as so many things are. I would...

Re : Anyone have early PIH and a healthy baby?

<t>Thank you for posting this, I have been wondering the same thing. I am at 19 weeks and my bp was a bit high at my last appointment. I can not imagine being put on bed rest with a toddler at home, but I know that my my would take time off to help out and I would do anything to help this little one...

Re : Question of the Day: Are YOU going to get it again

<t>I am completely sure that I will get it again. I am not happy about it, I am almost expecting an early baby - I just want to make it to 34 or so weeks. I am at 19 weeks right now and my bp's were up a bit at my last appointment (130/70) my OB will send me to the UW next appointment if they are st...
