Welcome mom2tori! Happy you found us. Sorry to hear about the loss of your son. That is great you went on to have your daughter. It's inspiring to read stories like that.

Denise- I have been reading a lot of the posts on here and have to say that everyone sounds so positive and strong. It is so uplifting to just read through the posts and be able to see that people care about each other. This is my new favorite place to be!

I am NEW here as well & am having a difficult time dealing with my Preeclampsia. I live in Edgerton, WI (which is located between Stoughton & Janesville, 15 minutes from each OR 30 minutes South of Madison).
I could use some courage, strength & support right now!
I'm 34 weeks along with my first & feel like it'll be eternity before I deliver.[:(]

Hi Tina!!! We are not that far apart-I live in Beaver Dam-about 30 min from Madison. Welcome! I am so glad you found your way here. 34 weeks huh? How are things looking? Boy or girl? Preeclampsia is hard to deal with so you are not alone on that one. How are your docs handling you? Keeping a close eye on you I hope. It is really a huge load off your shoulders to have complete faith in your docs and knowing you are in good hands can save a little on all that worry. It is so nice to see other WI girls on here-we are a small group but I think that we all bring something special to the WI chapter of the foundation. Looking forward to getting to know you..

Hello mom2tori....
Well at my ultrasound a few weeks ago, Matthew & I were told that it was a boy. My sister-in-law drove me there & her, the tech., & I could see it but my husband of course couldn't make heads or tails out of the pictures. (He was kind of set on having a little girl)
Oh well, we're both still very happy.
My sister-in-law recommended the doctor I am seeing. At first I thought, ewww this isn't the kind of woman I was hoping for, but then it got a little easier. She just seems like she's more from the old school, not overly emotional (like myself), just pretty much straight to the point on everything but really watching me close on the pre e. I am 35 weeks today & seeing my doctor twice a week.
I just feel that this has been a rough pregnancy for me (first 1 at that). I swear that I've had every symptom women talking about getting during pregnancy. AGH....just can't wait to have him![:p]
So, what is your story? I would like to learn more about others in WI as well!
Thanks for responding![:)]

A boy? How exciting for you! I am glad that you are being watched so closely-that is always a good thing although it can get tiring. I have had pe twice. My son was born at 28 weeks and lived for 32 hours. Watching him die is without a doubt the hardest thing that I have ever done. My heart will always ache for him and I miss him so much. My daughter was born at 30 weeks and spent about 5 weeks in the NICU. I was on hospital bedrest with both of them before they were born. Preeclampsia is the source of so much heartache and worry and a ton of emotions all at the same time, it is overwhelming. I do have to say though that I am glad to see you here and glad to hear that your boy will be in your arms before long. Hang in there and give him a smooch for me when he finally arrives.
