CHAD Stickers - Illinois Posters

<t>When my first son was born I was given 2 CHAD stickers to put on my car seats. It stands for "Children Have An Identity". For some reason when my second son was born the hospital did not distribute them. I asked the hospital about it and they didn't know what I was talking about. (Even though I h...

Re : Another how far along is everyone post.

I am 36 weeks and 3 days! I may be getting induced today. I have no signs of PE, though baby does have IUGR.

Crossing my fingers for an easy induction!

Re : 29 weeks - baby not growing

<t>This time around at 31 weeks my son started to look small for gest. age. I am now 36 weeks and he is definitely a few weeks behind, but I haven't shown any signs of PE. He just has IUGR. I have been going for NSTs 2x per week and blood flow is still looking good. I go tomorrow and then I have ano...

Re : Can I start a 24 hr test at any time?

My dr. gave specific instructions on how it should be done so I would ask. I was supposed to discard the first morning's urine and then after that start to fill the jug until the first pee the following morning. Though, I have no idea as to why they wanted it exactly this way.

Re : Swelling in the Thighs

<t>Once the swelling hit my knees I called my doctor. I went in and they found that my blood pressure had sky rocketed and I was spilling a lot of protein in my urine. For two weeks previously my feet had been swollen and it slowly was creeping up my calves. My face also started to become swollen, t...

Re : Anyone taking baby aspirin?

I take baby aspirin daily (81 mg). I also take it when I am not pregnant because I have elevated lipoprotein. I haven't developed signs of PE yet, but my baby does have IUGR again. I am almost 36 weeks!

Re : Tuesday is my day!

<t>My day may be Tuesday also. I have a non-stress test and then an u/s to check dopplers and growth. If he hasn't grown much/any then they will induce and I will be staying. It is a little nerve racking not knowing if it will/will not be the day. We are planning that I will be induced Wed. to make ...

Re : emotional

<t>My doctor thought I was +1 protein the other week, but once I did the 24 hour then it was determined to be a fluke. My doctor told me it is difficult to get a really clean catch when you are pregnant. Maybe yours will come back OK. You just never know.<br/> <br/> Good luck to you and hopefully yo...

Re : Banana peppers and jalenpos anyone??

<t>I also have had a hot pepper thing throughout this pregnancy! I don't know where that comes from. Though, I have layed off a bit on that. I am now really into watermelon and cantalope. I ate an entire watermelon in one day! I cut it up yesterday afternoon and finished off the last of it at dinner...
