Re : Synagis Question

We only got one season also. Our doctor told us they called and our insurance approved it but when they actually tried to order it, the insurance denied the claim. I hope you have better luck than we did!

Re : What was your BP?

<t>I was on Labetalol for my entire pregnancy since I have CHTN but around 33 weeks my BP went up to 140s/90s and my MFM immediately did PE labs...if they came back bad he was going to deliver me instead of waiting it out at that point. My labs came back perfect so he increased my BP meds. I had sta...

Re : How often for liver function and platelet tests?

<t>My MFM told me that unless I had symptoms, he would not be running tests. He said it was good to be proactive and cautious but that we didn't need to be truly worried until we had a reason to be worried. As soon as my BP started to rise just a little in the end and baby stopped growing so well, m...

Re : steroids??

<t>My MFM told me that they are only effective for a few weeks after they are given, so they are only given if they think that delivery will be soon. With #2, DD stopped growing well just before 34 weeks and my BP was going up at that point so they gave me the steroids just in case they had to deliv...

Re : What's more fun than lovenox?

I hope that starting a new box and using cortisone and benadryl will help, that sounds awful!! Do you think it could be your stomach stretching and your skin just being itchy and dry?? Whatever it is, I hope it goes away soon!!

Re : NEC??

<t>I am sorry you are going through this. Our son did not end up having NEC but at one point there was something wrong, his abdomen became much larger and he was in distress and they didn't know why. They immediately thought it was NEC and told us that it may be. After all the testing, they found ou...

Preschool and Preemie attachment

<t>I am just wondering if parents of preemies are more attached to their children?? DS is starting preschool tomorrow and I feel almost abnormally attached to him after being a SAHM since he was born and always being so protective of him. I have analyzed everything he does and every stage of his dev...

Re : convertable car seat vs. infant car seat

My DS was in his infant carrier until he was about 15 months old and then in a rear facing convertible car seat until he was a few months past his second birthday. We moved him into the convertible car seat when he got too long for the infant carrier.
