Re: Disconnected from pregnancy? Am I alone?

You're definitely not alone. I have chronic hypertension and have had two healthy take-home babies, but I just found out I'm pregnant again and am petrified. There's no elation, no thrills, no celebrating. Just nerves and fear of "what if." I think hypertensive disorders in pregnancy wreak even more...

Chronic hypertensives: which bp meds?

Interested in which bp meds my fellow chronics take. I started out on Aldomet 250 pre-children. I believe that remained my dosage throughout pregnancy w/DD. Had some hairy BP's after her birth and labetalol was added, but dropped after just a few days (because it gave me unbearable headaches) in fav...

Anyone pregnant & breastfeeding?

Just curious whether anyone else is pregnant and also breastfeeding an older baby/toddler. My DS is 14 months old and we're still nursing about 7x/24 hrs. We absolutely love it and I have no plans to stop until he's ready. He's still such a baby and I'm in no hurry to grow him up!

Re: Who is taking calcium?

I'm taking 1000 mg/day. I take 500 with breakfast and 500 before bed. Also taking magnesium 250 mg/day and LDA. Maybe it won't help, but it certainly can't hurt.
