20 weeks, High risk for Pre-e, should I stop nursing?

I was told by my MFM and my OB that I should stop nursing my daughter by 20 weeks pregnant. I am at high risk for PRE-e having lost twins from severe preeclampsia at 21 weeks in my first pregnancy. I had no complications in my subsequent pregnancy. Now I am pregnant again and I don't feel ready to s...

Re: It's different when you know what could be coming

Well I can't say I have similar numbers to you, but I was also an older mom (40) and I think it's important to see high risk docs having had pre-e. I would definitely drive the 2 hours to see a specialist if I were you. But this is coming from me who was given a 60% chance of recurrence. I never got...

Re: No Hope

I am so sorry for the loss of your dear baby. I hope to give you some hope. I lost twins almost the earliest you can have it at 21 weeks. When I lost them I needed hope too. I was given a 60% chance of recurrence. But thosepercentages don't necessarily mean youwillhaveit that early again. You may ge...

Re: What are the odds that I wouldn't make it?

The way that I dealt with that question was realizing I was probably more likely to die in a car wreck than from PE. My MFM also told me that with constant self monitoring and monitoring by doctors the risk to my life would be very low.

Re: How soon try for pregnancy?

Thanks ladies, and thanks for helping me see it from the perspective of having small children when being pregnant, or even just having one small child and how it can be a lot of work. Until I'm there, it's hard to imagine, but I'll be there soon enough. Going Thursday for my C-section. I feel a litt...

How soon try for pregnancy?

I had a twin loss in 2012 from severe preeclampsia at 21 weeks. I am now set to deliver my rainbow baby by C-section on September 5. After I lost my twins, my MFM told me to wait at least 6 months to TTC again. So, I did, and we got pregnant 9 months after losing my twins. I asked my MFM again this ...

Re: Aspirin

Well, it's hard to say, but for me, I got severe preeclampsia at just before 21 weeks last time with my twins and I had to deliver them at exactly 21 weeks. This pregnancy, I was on 81 mg of aspirin daily, calcium, Vitamin D, and Lovenox (I had some other blood issues). My doctor said all these thin...
