Kick counts - when to start them

I've done this 2x before - you'd think I would know the answer. But, when do you start counting kicks? I'm 22 wks and so far this baby really doesn't make too many kicks per hour. Even when I'm laying down - there'll be one or two at a time and I think one round of hiccups but beyond that he's prett...

Re: anyone had a Dr that wouldn't sign them off to fly?

You shouldn't have a problem unless you start having some sort of issues. But, I would get the letter now to avoid that. Really if you just got a letter showing what your EDD is that would be enough for the airlines since like you said they just need "clearance" after 36ish wks. Just make sure you w...

Re: 3rd time's a charm?

Thanks Julie! Congrats to you too :) I decided to go with the hospital midwife group. I'll meet with an OB they consult with at some point to just meet them for the "in case" scenario. Til then I'll just keeping taking my daily baby aspirin and checking my BP :)

Re: When would OBs want to start BP meds?

P+H - so are you planning a homebirth? I'm in a similar situation of trying to decide where to have care (I've moved away from my previous m/w and birthing center) - a doc vs m/w. I would really prefer a m/w in a birthing center but things are so different here that I'm having a hard time finding so...

3rd time's a charm?

I'm back for round 3 :) My short background - in 2009, 35 wks into pg with DD started developing high BP, bed rest, full blown pre-e, induction at 37 wks and then the super fun post partum pre-e with mag/sulf. All with midwives at a birthing center. Was on BP meds for 8 wks PP. 2011- 35 wks with DD ...

Re: When to see a MFM

Thanks. I probably should have noted that I was under the care of a midwife for both pregnancies and delivered a birthing center. My post partum care was with an OB so I've never seen a MFM at all.

When to see a MFM

A little background on me: I had PE with both kids and also PP PE with both that required meds for several months and a hospital stay with my first. I'm about 4 months PP now and am wondering when I should see a MFM before TTC #3. I don't plan on TTCing anytime soon (not until DS is one so I can BF ...

Re: BPs better when up??

I'm still hoping for a natural delivery where baby picks his/her own due date but I'm thinking that's not gonna happen this time either. I go tomorrow for my appt and a NST and I'm thinking we'll be talking induction at that point. This afternoon I started to feel a bit swollen (even though I was ju...

Re: BPs better when up??

Very good thoughts. Thanks! I have noticed now that it is better in the AM if I do get up and do something - just a little something like a small walk outside or my short little Target trip but at nighttime if I do anything beyond eating dinner (if I help clean up or get DD cleaned, ect) it shoots w...
