Re: Thanks to all those on the forum

Thanks Caryn. I don't quite know why she was taken into the nicu it was as if they didn't notice she was preemie for a couple of days! The nurses were unsure but her blood glucose and bilirubin were okish. To be honest I'm glad they intervened - if she carries on as she is she'll be out in a few day...

Re: Thanks to all those on the forum

Sorry for delay! After decelerations in baby's heart rate baby Etta was born (emergency c section) the morning of 1st August with a good cry and a lust for life. I was allowed to take her with me for the first couple of days but today (day 3) she's been taken for care in the nicu and my blood pressu...

Thanks to all those on the forum

After being told my blood flow to the placenta was very poor I've been reading this website religiously for information. I've been checking blood pressures daily (been on labetalol for last four weeks) and dipping my urine. Grateful every day that nothing awful had kicked off yet and yet still waiti...

Re: My first post...

Hi maamaa just thought I'd write in to say that I'm in a similar situation to you. My first baby came at 31 weeks when HELLP set in suddenly and with this baby they noticed that the blood flow to my arteries wasn't good so they were on the lookout for some sort of trouble again. All has gone well un...

Re: Help? How to spot HELLP coming?

Thanks so much - I'll read through the PRECOG guidelines. It's also really nice to know that recurrence of HELLP is not very likely. As for blood pressure I think I'm going to have to find a way of getting that checked more often. As a high risk pregnancy I fall between the hospital and the midwives...

Re: Help? How to spot HELLP coming?

Thanks - I think I need to tread that fine line between looking out for possible difficulties without being too paranoid! Ho hum... Yes, I am in the UK and though the NHS is often great (and luckily I happen to live round the corner from a hospital that has a great NICU unit!) it is often a case of ...

Re: Help? How to spot HELLP coming?

I'm week 23 at the moment and had some bloods done in week 20 and nothing had gone awry then. Just trying to come up with a plan to cope and try to spot any symptoms that might come my way this time...

Help? How to spot HELLP coming?

HI, I’ve just joined the forum after reading some of the posts and finding such useful links to medical journals… In my first pregnancy everything was going well except for some leg swelling. After a 24 hour urine check for protein the consultant said that I was free to go home and that they wou...
