Up to 17 weeks, 4 days.. up'd my labetalol to 400 3x a day, so today I'm doing the dose adjustment thing. Ugh.. I hate adjusting to a higher dose. I feel like my brain is stuffed with wool for two days.

Forgot a dose a couple of days ago and the baby got really active! Has been quiet again when I take my meds. Heartbeat is always good at the doctor's office, so I dunno if it's the baby, or if it's easier for me to feel movement when my blood vessels are less relaxed.

Can't wait for my 20 week ultrasound! Counting the days to my appointment.

Ugh. I can remember that feeling. After I lost my baby, I was up to 800 three xs per day! I think that was the dosage, I just remembering I was at the max... 2400. Plus, I was on procardia. Good luck to you and you will be in my thoughts and prayers!

Depends on who counts either 24 weeks even or 24 and 4 days. I am a nervous wreck right now. Not only do I have the same due date as my second pregancy but I also lost another baby sept 17 th two years ago. So my first goal is make it past the 17th then past the 21st (my sons b day). Then past Oct 18th the day he passed. Then I will hopefully begin to relax again. So far so good. But unfortunatly mine tends to show little to no warning then I get real sick fast. Last time I went from great to seizures in 4 hours.

14.5 weeks. I'll be 15 weeks this Saturday, 9/15. So far so good. My symptoms didn't show up until much later last time, though (39 weeks? 40 weeks?) and I don't even know if I was officially PE because my midwife didn't screen me for everything. So glad to be so well-monitored this time.

I'm leaning heavily towards a planned C section because it might feel like the most soothing option for me. Since my seizure happened in labor, I have some sadly scary associations with labor now. Plus I want to know exactly who is delivering me, which can't always happen with spontaneous labor.

Good luck everyone! Sending so many good wishes to all!
Eclamptic seizure in labor 12/1/09, age 39. Son born very healthy at 42 weeks and 9 lbs 4 oz via C section. PE had been suspected (by me) but not diagnosed by homebirth midwife. Pregnant again with #2, due 3/9/13.

Congrats!! Wishing you the most boring pregnancy ever. Boring but filled with snuggles from your precious baby, comforting kicks, and loving jabs!

Now at 19 weeks, just threw up with no warning as soon as I finished my cereal this morning. Bleah. Think maybe it's stress, since I don't have any other signs of illness, and no nausea ahead of time to warn me it was coming.

Went to work anyway, because I have almost no sick time left.

Really just trying to make it to my next couple of appointments (20 week ultrasound next week and then a visit with the MFM). Looking forward to getting a doctor's note saying I have to stay home and either telecommute or just not work for a while. Bedrest is stressful, but my body's just not handling the 9-5 grind well right now. :(

Ugh! I'm sorry! It's crazy that you experienced that, I did too this morning. And pain in my side. It wasn't on my left though. I just felt nauseous almost to the point of throwing up then the pain. Thankfully I have a BPP and appt with Obgyn at 2 45. I hope everything is ok with you!

Think yours is heartburn, maybe? I've been having a little reflux but no heartburn. Hope your visit with the OB goes well!

Hmmm... Good question. I'll ask. I normally have reflux too and have been without Prevacid all this time.
