Re : Roll call: who is pregnant and healthy?

<t>I have been scared to post and say that I am healthy this time since I did not want to jinx myself. I kept on thinking that I was developing PE...similar symptoms. But at 38+ weeks and no signs of PE (elevated BP or protien)I finally feel safe to say "I am healthy this time!". I will have a repea...

Re : PE in second pregnancy? who has had or not had?

<t>I had PE with my first son and was induced at 37 weeks. My son was completely fine and came home with me. I am currently 36 weeks and extremely please to say that no signs of PE. I really thought it was starting a few months ago but for the last month I have felt great and all symptoms appear to ...

Re : new here, had PE 1st pg, now pg again, many ?s!

<t>I can't answer any of your questions but thought you might like to know that you are not alone. I also had elevated liver enzymes after my son was born early due to mild PE. I only found out due to an insurance blood test. I went to a liver specialist and they did not want to procede with anythin...

Pitted vs Reg Swelling??

<t>I was wondering if anyone knows if there is a difference between regular edema and pitted edema. I just recently started to have pitted edema along my chins. It is not really bad only about 1/8 to 1/4 indentions that go away in about a minute. The only other symptoms that I have is the rib pain (...

Re : Does this sound right?

<t>Jennifer,<br/> <br/> I completely understand what you are saying. I felt the same way when I was told they would induce at 39 weeks and no one seemed to be taking me seriously. I felt this way until my doctor finally said that all was looking good so far and hopefully if I got PE again it will be...

Re : Mag question?

<t>Boy do I feel lucky after reading all the horror stories about mag. I was put on mag. and pitocin for PE at 37 wks. I was on it for about 2 1/2 days and honestly did not have many side effects except for 1 or 2 hours of feeling like I was going to crawl out of my skin/crazy. Which until now, I co...

Re : Fertility monitors?

<r>I had mixed results with the OPK. They only seemed to work if I had an idea of when I was going to ovulate. Otherwise I wasted a lot of money trying to guess. The thing that worked best for me was charting my cycles and paying attention to my basil temps. Which I did not buy the basil thermometer...

Re : Question of the Day: Are YOU going to get it again

<t>I was induced at 37 weeks the first time due to mild PE. I feel certain that I will get it again. The worst part for me is that my husband also thinks I will get it again and noticed earlier than I did that the same signs were starting earlier this time. At 26 weeks, I am having some symptoms inc...
