Re : Getting pregnant again - would this happen 2x?

3 for 3... tell me more. I didn't have placental issues with my previous pregnancies as far as size/stability. They were gorgeous, healthy sized placentas and I never had bleeding/abruption/etc. issues.

Can you expand on that? Thanks Caryn!

Re : Eidie Grey has arrived! 36 weeks, no pre-e!

<t>We go home tomorrow. :) And pooping wasn't bad, I was just grateful it happened! lol <br/> <br/> My doc has me coming in daily for a bp check - today it was 140/85. I'm on lasiks, nifedipine and atenolol, he says that the BP will stay at this level for a while and then start to go down. I hope he...

Re : Eidie Grey has arrived! 36 weeks, no pre-e!

<t>Everyone,<br/> <br/> Thank you for the lovely comments! I am still in the hospital- my body just isn't wanting to let go of the meds without putting up a fight. Had my first real "headache" (remember my previous question? I'm laughing now... lol) and KNEW it wasn't right. Pulse was up to 85 too, ...

Re : Headaches... how bad do they have to be to worry?

I did have a tylenol headache today and while I don't think the Tylenol helped necessarily the headache did go away on its own. I will just mention it to my doc when I see him Tuesday and see what he thinks. Thanks Fiona!

Headaches... how bad do they have to be to worry?

<t>Are any headaches a concern or just the really nasty ones that don't go away for nothing? <br/> <br/> I've been having constant headaches for the last week or so but they're more annoying than anything else- not severe enough to take Tylenol for at all. <br/> <br/> I had my NST today and the baby...

Re : Any comments would be useful...

Re : 35 week update, GREAT NEWS!!!!!

<t>Do you feel like you have an edge being a NICU nurse or a case of "I know too much!" Sometimes I feel torn between those worlds as a doula.. I wish I could just forget everything I know, everything I've seen, and just surrender, and most of the time I'm so, so grateful that I have seen it all and...
