Re: Merry Christmas!

Got the full numbers at my appointment today. 752 for protein, and platelets good (199). She said all my liver numbers look perfect, and sent me home with another jug to fill. My blood pressure was good today on the new dose, too, so we're just making sure the protein doesn't jump on us. Baby still ...

Re: Kind of in the two week wait...

Oh, it took me a year and a half to get regular cycles when I stopped taking birth control pills! We were actively trying at first, thinking it should be simple, and every irregular period was pure heartache. We finally conceived our first three years after stopping the pill. Never touched hormonal ...

Re: Merry Christmas!

Yeah. I'm starting to get some swelling in my feet, but no pitting and it goes away as soon as I put them up for a bit, so mostly it reminds me to rest more. The big question right now is if my OB will let me go as far as 39 weeks, or if she decides it's not worth waiting that far and we only go 37 ...

Re: Also Trying Again after PE with first two pregnancies

I haven't even given birth to my second, yet, and I'm wondering whether or not we'll have a third. We both want one, but there's always the question of my health. At this point, we've agreed to see if my BP goes back down after this one. After about a year, we should be able to make a better decisio...

Re: Merry Christmas!

Just got a call from the lab. It's at 700, but my baseline from 8 weeks was 611 and I don't have any other symptoms, so they're willing to wait until my own OB gets a chance to review things and talk to me on Monday. The weekly BPPs help! My little boy has turned over again and is in breech position...

Re: Merry Christmas!

I had an appointment the day after Christmas, and my present from my OB was a 24 hour urine test!

Oh, well, nothing I haven't done before..

Merry Christmas!

34 weeks today, one of my goals! I'm so happy to be safe and sound at Christmas. There were times earlier in this pregnancy when I wasn't sure I would make it this far!

Merry Christmas to everybody. I hope today is happy and peaceful for all of you!

I think it's just one of those fun hormonal things messing with your bladder.

Re: early Pre-E signs - What to demand of Dr?

At this point, the placentas have already formed, so any treatment is going to be to minimize the effect of symptoms while trying to go as long as possible to enable your babies to thrive. There's not a lot that pre-e really responds to, unfortunately. Rest can help some people to avoid blood pressu...

Re: Successfully moved

Thanks, guys. I'm starting to get a little jittery about birth now. >.> Getting those first few tiny aches that let me know my pelvic girdle's relaxing and stretching to get ready, which makes it feel a lot more real! My baby hadn't even dropped yet when I was induced last time! And I was so distrac...
