Re : New to BP meds - questions

ITA! With Henry, I gained over 50 pounds before delivering at 34+2. With Sofia, I don't think I gained more than 20 total.

Re : New mom of a preemie

<t>(((hug))) prayers for both of you for strength and courage.<br/> <br/> I think as moms we forget to give ourselves credit and tend to dismiss our emotions.<br/> <br/> It is OK to feel afraid, worried, sad, angry, and in love with your daughter. Her birth came so much sooner than expected. It is a...

Re : New to BP meds - questions

<t>Lauren - you've gotten excellent information so far. Just wanted to add my 2 cents.<br/> <br/> Medicating BP in PE cases is one of those grey areas in medicine as far as my layman's understanding. Some docs won't do it for the reasons your doc mentioned. In both pregnancies I was medicated, thoug...

Re : 2nd Pregnancy and scared

<t>Torian - your post struck me because I, too, have 3 kidneys, though I think one of them is significantly smaller than the other 2.<br/> <br/> I have often wondered if there was a link between having 3 kidneys and preeclampsia, but the specialists here do not see any correlation. Who knows ...<br/...

Re : what happens if my test results come back abnormal

<t>(((Shannon)))<br/> <br/> It sounds like your doc is being realistic and hopeful ... and 32 weeks is a great goal.<br/> <br/> With your previous pregnancies being full-term, I would request a NICU tour and a talk with one of the NICU docs about what to expect at 26 weeks and onward.<br/> <br/> I w...

Just checking in ...

<t>I have been away awhile ... well, the forum showed the last time I was here was in February so I guess it really has been a while. Oops! :)<br/> <br/> Just wanted to give a brief update on me and the kiddoes.<br/> <br/> Me - I am still on meds for my PPD. I am only recently starting to realize th...

Re : Light Are On and I Think I'm Home

<t>Katie - great to "see" you back here. I, too, have been on a bit of a hiatus, trying to adjust to well, life.<br/> <br/> After Sofia's birth, I purchased a book about ppd - this isn't what I expected. Since dealing with PPD since Henry's birth, I just thought the feelings I have had were normal. ...

Re : does anyone else feel like this?

Peace does come, but I think for most of us (at least for me) it became easier to accept what happened when I began to understand what happened.

And like Caryn, that's why I am here too ...

Hang in there and know that you are not alone in this.
