Re : Thank You

<t>I went back to work 3 weeks after losing William. I went in the week before just to get the inital face to faces over. My anticipation was much worse than the reality. But I think I went back to work too soon. For the next month I was only there about half of the time as my bp and my emotions wer...

Re : Question of the day re: PE and relationships

<t>My husband was wonderful through the pregnancy and the loss and all this time afterwards.

When the dr told us we were going to have to deliver the baby though were only 20 weeks -...

Re : Question of the day re: race and ethnicity

<t>my husband and I are both caucasion. HPB runs all thru my dads side of the family no matter what size the family member is. My mom did say she got "toxemia" as they used to call it right before my brother was born and she runs low bp and weighed about 105 lbs. She didn't have any problems with my...

Re : Hypertension medication and depression

<t>I have been on an ACE inhibitor as well as massive doses of atenalol and lasix since losing William - 6 months ago today. And with all that medication I am still hanging right around 120/80 as well.<br/> <br/> I have only had a few nightmares - but they are very clear and very disturbing.<br/> <b...

Re : question of the day re: pregnancy ideals

<t>It is very much emotional for me even though six months later I am still struggling with the bp. I agree that the "ideal" pregnancy would be to have my son here with me. I was not diagnosed with pe until I was in the hospital and they told me I had pree and HELLP and we would have to terminate th...

Re : question of the ...uh, day re: blood draws

<t>Nurses always think it will be tough to find the veins but once I showed them the good ones there were no problems. Nor with either hand for the iv's (one for each hospital stay) and they inserted some kind of thing in my arm that gave them constant bp readings (they weren't sure about the readin...
