I made it 6w6d on bedrest! Julia is here!!!

<t>I had Julia at 35w6d (last tuesday) due to severe pre-e. They had to do a C-section b/c she was breech. They tried to turn her 5 times pretty vigoriously but she kept popping back into the breech position. She is in the NICU and can hopefully come home tomorrow. She is doing great. She had to be ...

Re : Good news but what does it mean?

<t>I just wanted to chime in with my experience on dropping protein. At 29 weeks I was hospitalized with protein of 872. A week later, I was discharged with protein at 400. Over the next 5 weeks it continued to go down, reaching just a tad over 200 at the highest. But at 35 weeks it went back up to ...

Re : Time between pregnancies affect pre-e?

<t>This is just my experience. With my 3rd, I developed pre-e at 34 weeks (protein was over 500) and was induced at 37 weeks. I got pregnant again when he was just 9 months old. For me, I've had a harder pregnancy this time. At 29 weeks, I was hospitalized b/c protein was 872. I'm now 35w2d but have...

I'm hoping they do (I'll be 36 we...

what can I take for a cold?

<t>I know sudafed is on the list for safe things to take when pregnant, but I think it may raise BP, so that's out. Anything else I can take? I have a headache, runny nose, itchy eyes and sneezing. Thanks!!<br/> <br/> Wanted to add: That my last 24 hour was 506 (from Sunday) and my BP at the doctor'...

Re : Pre-E getting better as I get further along?

Pre-E getting better as I get further along?

<t>I was admitted into the hospital at 29weeks b/c my 24 hour was 872. I was there for one week and given steriod shots. Well I'm 34 weeks (tomorrow) and my protein is 266 now. It seems like the further along I get the better my 24 hour urine's get. My BP is about the same. I have been getting more ...

Re : How do you feel if you have protein in your urine?

I was hospitalized at 29 weeks for one week. I was feeling pretty good at the time. I was shocked to find out my protein was 872! So for me, it's hard to tell, I felt the same at 872 vs. as I did last week spilling 366!
