Re: Am I developing pre-e?

Again, I only have my own experience to offer, and what I've learned so far.... Fact or Fiction: I'm sure it could be true that constant testing can raise some peoples numbers. Personally I know I've had HBP for years and it's not going to come or go bc I'm monitoring it. What I like to do is keep a...

Re: Am I developing pre-e?

Let me preface this response with a warning label... I am NOT "experienced" :) . However, I'm going to go ahead and throw my 2 cents in anyway.....

Re: Just diagnosed 27 Weeks

Re: Introducing myself...

OK... so I have until Friday when I have a regularly scheduled appointment to get my act together! I plan to do as much research as I can, and even though my OB spends roughly 5 minutes or preferable less with his patients I plan to have a short list of important questions that he has no choice but ...
