Re: Grieving, I am sad everday

I am so sorry for your loss. Words cannot express the heart wrenching pain of losing a child. I know it must seem like there is no light at the end of the tunnel right now. Maybe you can find some comfort in knowing that many other women here have walked the same path and you are not alone. It does ...

How to manage work stress during pregnancy

My bp is finally better and I'm on a low dose of Atenolol. My doc will probably discontinue it if bp is stable for a couple of months and give us the green light to TTC. What is really frustrating is my bp goes up when I'm working. I have a mentally challenging job and concentrating on my work makes...

Re: NEW 10wks and put on BP Med????

Hi Julie, From what my perinatologist told me, high bp can eventually lead to preeclampsia so best to get it under control. I was told I had borderline high bp all throughout my first and second trimesters and I was diagnosed with severe pre-e at 26 weeks 5 days. There are other factors that lead to...

Re: This pregnancy is so different... having a hard time

Hang in there! I hope you are able to stay positive and that everything works out for you. They say that every pregnancy is different. I also had a very smooth pregnancy until I got sick at 26 weeks and 5 days and I was carrying a girl. I've heard that a woman can feel worse with male babies since i...

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

I am very sorry for your loss. I agree with the other posters that you should get a second opinion and find a high risk MFM that you trust and feel comfortable with. Preeclampsia and HELLP are serious matters that can have short and long term consequences. I wish you the best of luck and don't stop ...

Re: Mother's Day coming up and I'm feeling sad

Thank you Angie and KeriSue. We are going to visit Nia at the cemetery today. Today is hard but I'm still glad I was a mother even if for a short while. I think all the moms out there who have experienced loss probably feel the same. My life is forever changed having known and loved little Nia.

Mother's Day coming up and I'm feeling sad

My coworker sent out an early Happy Mother's Day to everyone. It made me feel sad because Mother's Day is a celebration of life and love, only we got to experience it for too short a time. I know my baby knew she was loved while she was here and the love I feel for her is strong and forever. She's j...
