Re: Overwhelmed!!!

My husband just keeps telling me to be positive and I am trying but it is so hard! I am an emotional mess today and just needed to vent somewhere where people get it. My husband told me the same thing--that I needed to be more positive. :roll: I figured out that he was trying to pretend that I coul...

Re: anti-axiety meds

I took Zoloft throughout my last pregnancy. I was taking a low dose when I got pregnant and it was working well. As soon as the pregnancy hormones kicked in, the anxiety ramped up again and I increased my dose for a while. I tried to wean off it during the last trimester, but it was really rough. My...

Re: Notching

One of the sonographers at the MFM's office told me they won't check after 24 weeks. It's not unusual to have it in early pregnancy, but for most people it goes away by 24 weeks. If you still have it at 24 weeks, then it's an indication that you could develop pre-e--although not a guarantee. I asked...

Re : bp staying around 130-140/ 75-89 normal?

I agree with alexa5. You don't want to take it too often. Two or three times a day should be sufficient.

Re : Need your comforts and advices

<t>I am sorry for your loss. If you look under Ask the Experts and Frequently Asked Questions, I think you may find some of the answers you want. I know when we considered having another child, I remember reading that it can take at least two years for your body to recover from preeclampsia. Some pe...

Re : Need Help with Question about subsequent pregnancy

<t>For me, Braxton Hicks were mainly abdominal and regular contractions wrapped around my sides and back, too. They were also significantly more intense.<br/> <br/> Yes, this time I felt a lot of pressure (and sometimes pubic pain like I had been kicked in the crotch) from about week 30 on.<br/> <br...

Re : Severe Preeclampsia Question

<t>I've done this twice now. The first time I was able to limp along with home bedrest and later hospital monitoring until 37 weeks, but my pressures weren't crazy and I did not meet diagnostic levels for protein, although my platelets were low. This time the symptoms came on later, but they were wo...
