However, I have talked to several women that still take some of the supplements ( with the OK from their OB) with the "what can you lose" approach. Whether or not it works, I have seen that the...

Re: Question re: heart palpaltations

Pre-e Labs...How often did your doctor?

Hi Ladies,
How often did/does your MFM draw Pre-e labs during pregnancy along with having you do 24 hour urines?

Once you deliver, does anyone know from experience how often they are drawn postpartum to monitor you for pre-e following delivery?

Did anyone NOT get pre-e second time around?

Hi ladies, Have any of you that had pre-e with pregnancy #1, not have it with pregnancy #2? If so, what did you do differently in your second pregnancy that either lessened the severity or kept it away?
