Re: Question for C-section moms

I had steri strips and dissolvable stitches. I went back to my peri several times after delivery due to bp issues and about two weeks ago they did an insicion check and found I had a yeast infection at the site due to its location under my tummy. My doctor cleaned it and instructed me how to clean i...

I am hoping that once I finally HEAL I will start e...

Question for C-section moms

Unfortunately my insicion is a bikini cut and is located right under my tummy, so there is skin-to skin contact and...

Re: Looking for advice with 3rd Pregnancy

It sounds like you are in good hands. Unfortunately with no cure or prevention you are doing the best thing by seeing a competent and proactcive peri. :) They will keep a close eye on you and will do everything possible to keep you and your baby safe for as long as possible. :)

I had Faith-PE again??? induction scare

Hello Ladies. I will try to make this short. On June 11th I started getting contractions. I headed into L&D at 3am and was triaged. A resident was originally going to send me home (I live an hour from the hospital) but a doctor from my Peri stepped in and decided to keep me and induce me given my hi...

This morning I woke up at 5am with painful contractions that were coming about every two minutes and lasting about a minute each. Then after ...

Re: contractions an hour appart with high bp at 25 weeks!!!

Ive been getting crazy braxton hicks, and last week I went to l&d thinking I was in labor when it was contractions caused by a UTI. I agree to take it easy and stay as hydrated as possible. Good luck and keep us posted!
