Re: Second pregnancy after severe preclampsia/eclapmsia

Hi Maria, I had preeclampsia in my second pregnancy after a tragic first pregnancy though I was under MUCH more watchful care, took low dose aspirin from early on, and managed to get a few weeks further along. It was a much better outcome, even though I definitely got it again. While you may got oth...

Re: induction and emergency c section at 38 weeks , worried about son's outcome

Hi Tiffany, I'm so sorry nobody has responded and I know that the urgency of your feelings has probably passed by now. My two quick comments for now are 1) if you're still struggling with the emotional issues - which would be completely normal if you were - please seek out a therapist and/or medical...

Re: Parent of micropreemie going through puberty

Oh my, that has got to be heartbreaking. We deal with so much guilt and frustration anyway because of our preeclampsia, now this! I'm no expert as my preemie's issues were more gastro-related and we're handling his residual issues pretty well, though I do have a sister who dealt with precocious pube...

Re: After the postpartum period

Hi Robin, I guess it depends on what you mean by problems... Emotional/mental - yes, many women need support to deal with the emotional impact (see a therapist, ideally one who specializes in perinatal issues and possibly be open to medications that could help). Physical problems, additional medical...

Re: Protein in urine postpartum

Hi Julia, I've not heard of anybody having protein in their urine for that long unless there was some kind of kidney dysfunction or disease. It's also possible you had that much before pregnancy and didn't know it. A nephrologist would be able to help you sort that out, preferably one that specializ...

Re: Has anyone gotten preeclampsia three times?

The short answer is yes, it's certainly possible and has happened to women before. I had preeclampsia twice and from early indicators such as my overall hemodynamics, cardiac output, etc. looked like I was destined to get it again. I was seeing a specialist who, for my particular case, suggested ate...

Re: placenta research

Sarah,

One more thing regarding donating your placenta for research -- there are placenta banks in some academic teaching hospitals around the country. So it could depend on where you are located. Let me know and I'll see if we know any nearby investigators.
