Re : Was this a symptom?

<t>I'm not a doctor here and have very limited knowledge of anxiety disorders but will try to help throw some info your way... I suspect that given your history, you really are not going to be able to get the right and specific enough answer to your question from the forums here. You really are goin...

Re : work

<t>hmm... best advice I can give is to consider talking to someone (lawyer?) who knows about employment laws. Bottom line as I understand it is that with FMLA they have to give you time off after you have your baby and you have to have your job back afterwards - i.e. they can't fire you for having y...

Re : Questions

<t>The key questions to know in order to know if she has PE is what is her BP and how much protein is in her urine. She should have a 24hr protein test done - get the actual number from the doc on this test. Blood pressure is easy enough to check at home - but also ask what it was at that appointmen...

Re : a second time

<t>Sorry - I should have read a little closer - hmm "this is my fourth" does generally imply you are already pregnant now doesn't it [:)] - well congratulations then...<br/> <br/> Well, at this point I hope that you are being seen by a very good OB - preferably a high risk specialist. Going into a p...

Re : a second time

<t>Well the good news and the bad news...<br/> <br/> Current research and theories seem to support the statement that you can't do much to prevent PE in terms of diet/exercise/etc while you are pregnant. That's good and bad - good because it means you (and others) didn't "Cause" the problems that yo...

Re : PE friendly books?

<t>Heh... hmm... best reading material that I can recommend is here - I have heard rumors that there may be a great book about to be published, but I don't know when exactly it will be hitting the shelves... probably not soon enough. [:)]<br/> <br/> Seriously - there is so much to learn and with all...

Re : weight gain/edema

<t>Sorry to say that I can't tell you if you are headed back towards PE or not. Given the state of the science today, I don't beleive anyone can really tell you one way or the other.<br/> <br/> From my understanding, some swelling is normal and it can come and go. My DW had it come and go during eac...

Re : placental growth factor (PlGF) Research

<t>I feel your frustration - believe me. I didn't actually put you and Kelly W together until today for some reason.. funny how that happens sometimes.. guess I should pay more attention.<br/> <br/> Anyway, on the question of the 24hr protein collection. I too would be pushing very hard to get that ...

Re : placental growth factor (PlGF) Research

<t>Sounds to me like you hit on one of the key questions already - would the test result relate in any way to the severity of the PE. The other question that I (and I'm sure all the rest of us) would like to know is the timing of onset - or timing of critical events to come. I somehow doubt that thi...
