Re: Will the 3rd time be a charm or another disaster???

Yes, get another opinion. Most of us who have had severe pre e before term are high risk. Your dr should take this seriously especially since you lost your babies. It is my understanding you are at much higher risk because you had it very early on.

Re: No urine: Anyone else?

For me having no urine output was a deciding factor to go with an emergency c section at 34 weeks, along with the increased BP and other labs being abnormal. My urine never came back though. Can you see your peri sooner?

Re: Doing research: please share your experience

I developed pre e at 32 weeks and delivered via emergency c-section at 34 weeks due to worsening pre e. My kidneys were not producing urine, I had pulmonary edema, clonus, and BP that would not go down even with medication. I was also on my way to HELP. On top of it, the reason I went to the ER, was...

Re: Anyone decline the post-partum magnesium?

Hi, I get your strong feelings to want to bf. I really wanted to as well. I had an almost 34 weeker who was in the nicu for 2 weeks. I wouldn't refuse the mag bc "what if?"

Re: Borderline Pre-e

Very Quickly! pre e can progress super fast. One day, I was in the OB fine and 2 days later was having an emergency c-section at 33 weeks. That being said, I have read about women on this forum in which it did not progress fast at all. Just be aware of your symptoms and be in touch with your dr.

Re: tested positive antiphospholipid syndrome

Re: Loneliness and TTC

Although, I did not loose our daughter after preeclampsia hit, I can relate to the extreme emotions that many women feel. Not only being traumatized by loosing your son, but traumatized also from having pre-e. I thought I was ready to TTC to again, but after 2 MFM visits, I realized I was not ready....

Re: Accuracy of 24 hour urinalysis

Maybe your urine output is decreasing? That happened to me at 34 wks and I had to deliver because of decreased kidney function. Or maybe you just did not drink enough?
