Re: Lost my baby this monday. pls help me understand!!

Absolutely nothing-it sounds like you have a game plan already. I just have to point out, however, that *your* side of the placenta is closest to the baby. The ischemic part was your partner's layer, which again relates to this being an immune mediated rejection of an invasive foreign organ. The pat...

Re: Preeclampsia according to dr.

If you look at the ACOG guidelines, you'll see that the majority of it bases delivery on how both you and sproglette are doing.

Re: Preeclampsia according to dr.

Sadly, no. Part of the immune conflict between your immune system and the placenta means certain chemical factors between cells are being differently regulated as compared to a non-hypertensive pregnancy; it's this dysregulation that's damaging a filtration membrane in your kidneys that would ordina...

Then what is most likely going on is that you are indeed a chronic hypertensive-that your pressures rose above your baseline before the 20 week mark is indicative of that. If you've been diagnosed with PCOS, then PCOS itself induces a mild insulin resistance as a baseline, and pregnancy further exac...

Re: Lost my baby this monday. pls help me understand!!

Howdy! I'm so sorry to hear about your early loss, I can understand how gut-wrenching it is to try so hard and lose him entirely too soon. I've got a couple of questions that may help to shape the answers I can point you to. I'm sorry if they're overwhelming or grate over a raw patch. Feel free to b...
