Re : Can Blood Pressure be too low during pregnancy?

<t>The only risks of having low bp are to you, not to the baby, and the risks aren't life threatening. Just feeling off, nauseated, dizzy, etc.). As long as you don't pass out and clunk your head or fall down on your belly, you're good. My doctor actually pulled me out of work because of low BP sinc...

Re : Anyone have a successful pregnancy after Pre-e???

<t>I'm at 38 weeks + 2 days in my 2nd pregnancy and so far have had no PE issues, although like Aimee, they're inducing me at 39 weeks (if she doesn't come earlier) to avoid any last minute issues that could pop up. <br/> <br/> It is possible to have a PE free 2nd pregnancy. In my case, I attribute ...

Re : 4D US

My dr. has the machine where you flip the switch too & they only have done it a few times with me when she's been face up & not too close to the placenta or uterine wall. We got a few cute face pictures, but they don't do any diagnostics with it.

Re : Anyone find it hard?

<t>I would also strongly recommend a pre-consult with a high risk OB or MFM prior to TTC. We had trouble conceiving with both my daughter & with this pregnancy (although the miscarriage was an Oops), but this last time around was much harder. Partially due to age (I was 33 vs. 27) and also due t...

Re : Any Sucess on Aspirin or Lovenox

I'm officially full term @ 37 weeks today and definitely attribute it to being on LDA, Lovenox, and Folic Acid - although I was diagnosed with a clotting disorder after my daughter's birth & subsequent miscarriage. I'm not sure they would have made any difference otherwise.

Re : Anyone else feel exhausted in 2nd trimester

I was going to say Iron as well. My hemoglobin was low & they put me on extra Iron (Slow FE - OTC) around 17 weeks and it has made a ton of difference. I'm certainly not back to my pre-pregnancy self, but I'm able to function after 3 PM, which I was having a really hard time doing before.
