Re: MFM appointment today

This syndrome tends to terrify a lot of people, including OBs, when contemplating later pregnancies. MFMs are the way to go; they see so many more rough pregnancies than OBs that they're more likely to be comfortable explaining risks, benefits, and odds.

Updates when you're able. :)

I know I was out of breath from early pregnancy, and hyperreflexic for quite some time as well. D...

Re: Advice for second pregnancy after pre eclampsia

Hi, and welcome! The thing that seems to have the biggest impact is that it is a second pregnancy - the spiral arteries that supply the uterus are remodeled by the first pregnancy and are easier for subsequent placentas to exploit. So you're really set, there! The Brewer diet doesn't help; we've got...
