Re : 2nd Pregnancy and scared

Just wanted to send prayers and hugs. This must be a scary time for you but try to remain positive and as stress free as possible to help keep your sanity.

Re : Postpartum PE?

<t>My PPPE was a bit different. I had PIH in the last wks of pregnancy and was on bedrest, delivered at 37 wks. I was monitored closely but allowed to go home (on bedrest) the same day. My m/w came by to check my BP daily and my husband checked it as well. I honestly felt FINE. I knew if I stood up ...

Re : Just diagnosed with preeclampsia, UPDATE!!!

<t>Hi Bettie! I was induced at 37 wks with a cervical ripening drug. I had 3 rounds of it and when I went into labor it was 4 hrs start to finish. I was at a birthing center and did not have any pain meds (which I read was something you'd hoped for). I've heard that pitocin contrax are much harder t...

Re : Pregnant again and Nervous (History Attached)

<t>Congratulations on your surprise pregnancy! I read your story and completely understand your fear. I pray for a very uneventful and healthy pregnancy this time :) I'm only 14.5 weeks into my 2nd pregnancy so no advice on the outcome of it yet but I know others will definitely give you their stori...

Re : 37 weeks, NICU time?

<t>We had the same experience as MrsS. 37w2d baby who was the picture of health just couldn't keep herself warm for a bit but lots of kangaroo care and swaddling. She didn't get a full bath b/c of this and my DH just wiped her down with a warm washcloth in spots. <br/> <br/> I was induced (cervical ...

Re : Seeing spots

<t>No headache. I usually see the spots out of the side of my eye and the weird thing is it's not connected with any activity. Sometimes it's just when I'm sitting on the computer and other times it's when I get up (which is sometimes accompanied by dizziness).<br/> <br/> I'm still way too early to ...

Seeing spots

<t>Hi ladies! I'm 14.5 wks along and things have been going well :) My BP is good, I'm taking baby aspirin and prenatals and that's it! Last PG I went on bedrest at 35 wks for PIH, delivered at 37 wks and was hospitalized later that week for PP pre-e. <br/> <br/> So I know that seeing spots is a pre...

Re : If I hear another thing about salt...

<t>Thanks for letting me vent and understanding! Ahhh!!! I just don't like the implication that *I* did something to cause pre-e when I know I didn't. And yes I limited my salt towards the end but JUST for my swelling and comfort! Grrrr. My DH gets the same silly comments b/c he has diabetes so he c...

If I hear another thing about salt...

<t>Ok. Sorry for a rant but...seriously if another family member tells me to "watch my salt intake" this pregnancy I'm gonna lose it!!! I know I should be patient b/c *I'm* the one whose done all the Pre-E research and not them but come on! Also my mom keeps *insisting* that "it won't happen again" ...

Re : not seeing specialist?

<t>I'm only seeing my m/w. I was with them my last pregnancy so they are monitoring me closely and will see me more frequently sooner than most. I haven't had a consult with a MFM at all and don't plan on it unless necessary. My midwives do have a good relationship with an OB practice down the stree...
