Re : Going back to work post- PE

I went back after 3 weeks - but then missed a lot of time as my health and my mental status wasn't up to it. Do what feels right to you but don't push yourself beyond what you can handle.

Re : I need help planning a memorial service.

<t>We too had William cremated and we still have him home with us. Neither of us have family in cemetaries anywhere near - and we didn't want him to be alone. We found a beautiful marble urn for him that is like a baby block with ABC's, 123's on the sides and an etched baby angel on another. Then th...

so many "anniversaries" - enough sanity?

<t>My depression is setting back in hard. I tried to keep it from my dh for a while - but he hasn't gotten much sleep this week with me up sobbing. I've been sick too - so that hasn't helped. I went to therapy for a few months after losing Will and do ok on and off. Today I called my dr to go on ant...

Re : Weird side effects

<t>I too had the ridges in my fingernails - I figured it was just becuase I wasn't taking the prenatals anymore after losing William.<br/> <br/> As for neck pain - I was in misery! And it did start after they changed my bp meds to the ones that didn't work and had me averaging 150/100 for seven week...

Re : Cholesterol and Preeclampsia

<t>My cholesterol has always been good - surprising to my dr's since I am overweight. From these discussions I had my dr take a new test and it did go up to 201 since the pregnancy and preeclapmsia - before it ran 170. It's a wierd thing - my tiny, petite, 110lb mother has a level of 245.<br/> <br/>...

Re : Benefits of pregnancy massage?

<t>My dr hadn't diagnosed me with pre e - but my bp was way out of control. I asked the ob if massage was ok because my neck had gotten very tight. I got a massage and a few days later was when I started to "not feel right" and I lost Will the next week. It is something I question myself about a lot...

Re : My Birthday was horrible.

<t>Your feelings are all very valid. I too have trouble with other pregnant women and seeing babies everywhere. My boss and his wife are due EXACTLY 40 weeks from the day I lost William. I knew it was close - but last week when I noticed that - it put me over the edge yet again.<br/> <br/> I lost my...
