Re : birth control

<t>Paraguard. I knew I didn't want the pill. I went through a few before babies and didn't like how they made me feel. (dry) I went in asking about Mirena. He said with my history, he recommended paraguard. insertion was on day 3 of my period. it was uncomfortable... one period when he was measuring...

Re : repeat Pre E?

<t>I think you just need to keep on top of things and be as open as you can with your OB about any symptoms and questions you might have. the swelling alone doesn't necessarily mean pree. the trace protein doesn't necessarily mean pree.. you could have have protein and ketones show up if you're dehy...

Re : my nurse told me to look for tingling in fingers?

<t>I had light sensitivity for MONTHS after having my first... that was after my worst case of pree. I had floaters, from 31wks on with her, then saw stars and blurry vision starting around 34wks. they had already determined pree was what was going on by that point. with my second, I had no other sy...

Re : How to transition to crib?

<t>what I did was start a routine at 5 or 6wks. Nothing was firm other than at 7pm, we'd have bathtime, nurse, read a book, and then put them in their crib. If they fussed, I'd rock them a little while and try again. if they stayed awake, but calm, I left them in the crib. Libby had been eating ever...

Re : anyone having difficulty losing weight now?

<t>unfortunately, I don't have many opportunities to go alone... my husband and I work alternating shifts. so the nights I don't work, he is working later evenings so that the nights I work, he can come home a little early so I can nap. I only work 2 nights a week, but man, does that mess me up for ...

Re : my nurse told me to look for tingling in fingers?

<t>it's tough b/c many of the symptoms associated with pree are associated with pg in general. protein & ketones in the urine could be a sign of dehydration (hence if it's trace or even just +1, some obs may not run a 24hr urine... although with mine showing trace, my 24 came back with a protein...
