Re : anybody here have their membranes stripped?

<t>Just a word of advice about the castor oil if you do choose to use it. I had a friend who bought some frozen fruit and put it in a blender with ice so it had some texture like a smoothy and then she added castor oil to it. She said that it wasn't nearly as bad as how she took it with previous pre...

Re : 7 wks and NO symptoms yet!

<t>I think that symptoms really vary. I didn't get an ounce of morning sickness with my first 2. Was feeling sick for about 2 weeks with my third and threw up the entire pregnancy with my last. They actually had to put me on Zofran at 5 weeks because I couldn't keep anything down. It's amazing how m...

Re : military/tricare insurance ???

<t>I am an Air Force wife and I have gone the rounds with Tricare. Luckily, our current base will not take on high risk patients so they immediately referred me to the doctor of my choice. I am not sure how comfortable you are with this or if your husband is willing to do so but, I know that a lot c...

Re : Should I and why Asprin

<t>My peri just put me on asprin too and I am a little worried about taking it for the same reasons. I am 18 weeks and my bp is just creeping up a bit. I have decided to do a little more research this weekend before starting it. I know that otherwise I will just worry that I could be hurting my baby...

Hmm....

<t>I just got back from my first visit with my peri who I have never met before today. He is really nice and I like him but I am not sure what to think. He seems very knowledgeable and does see me as high risk. He is even having me take asprin each day to reduce my risk of PE. The only thing that co...

Re : Two vessel umbilical cord

<t>Hi there! My second had a 2 vessel cord. She did have extra fluid on her brain but my peri told me that having a 2 vessel cord does not mean that there is anything wrong with the baby and often times that little one is healthy as can be. It is not always true for the reverse. If there is somethin...

Re : How much???

<t>Thanks guys. I have an appointment on tuesday and I will ask him about it then. I just don't want to be one of those that brings up all these little things if they are not significant. I asked him how high was too high for me and he said to let him worry about it because he doesn't want me to get...

How much???

<t>Hi guys! I have a really quick question for all of you. How much should your bottom bp number change normally? I am 14 weeks today and I am noticing that I am creeping up a bit now. I am still not high by all means but at my first OB appointment I was 100/60 and this week I keep jumping up to 140...
