Re : 3rd pregnancy could go better?

<t>Interesting...I had PE twice...both at around 34 weeks. Delivered my son at 33 weeks, my daughter at 34 weeks....was told that it is almost guaranteed that I will get it again, but it is NOT guaranteed that it would come at the same time---that it COULD be earlier. Thus, no more babies for me...i...

Re : Any experience with an aging placenta?

<t>I was also showing a Grade 3 placenta at 28 weeks and the peri was concerned. At 34 weeks, the doc said that amazingly the placenta looked much better and would now classify it as a grade 2 (and that the pregnancy had "caught up" with the placenta).<br/> <br/> In the end, I was induced at 34 week...

Re : Heart Murmur

Same here...my daughter was referred to a pediatric cardiologist last week and the doctor said that the murmur that she has is very common in preemies and goes away by itself. It was nothing to worry about.

Re : Yet another recurrence question

<t>quote:Originally posted by missgamecock<br/> <br/> I was given a 25-50% chance of PE and a 100% chance of BP issues. However, my chance of pe just shot up to 100% because of notching in the right uterine artery. I was able to verify it by pulling studies that stated the notching at 18-20 weeks in...

Welcome Lauren Elizabeth (pre-e strikes again)

<t>I went in for my NST and ultrasound on Monday and my BP was 170/102. They called the lab for the results of the 24 hour urine, which I had just handed in and it was 1200 mg. They admitted me right away and the peri wanted to deliver me right away. I was 34 weeks. <br/> <br/> Two days later, after...

Re : Large cuff?

I found this online...it doesn't really get into the WHY, but it actually gives a chart on whether or not you should use a regular or large cuff. Interesting.....
