Re : New here, wanted to introduce myself.

<t>Hi Cheri,<br/> You have received some great advice so far. I wish I had known about those latch-on thingies with my 33 weeker. I just wanted to let you know that I had dd at 33 weeks due to chronic hypertension, severe pe, IUGR...and then got severe ppd and was on Paxil for 4 years. Almost 7 year...

Re : Mag - Sulfate experiences

<t>I was on mag for 4 days with my dd, and told by ob that I didn't want it with my son if it could be avoided at all. He held off until my diastolic was 108. He said above 105 and he had to. I don't know if that was his guideline, or the hospital, or what. Anyway, I was not on it but for 24 hrs., a...

Re : End of 38th Week

<t>I would definitely talk to the doctor about your wishes and concerns. That sounds strange, but there are some weirdos out there. My doc says he'll keep me in the hospital till the 39th week if need be (instead of doing the c-section at 37 or 38 weeks). I just don't get it...but talk to him. Best ...

Re : Any babies born before 35 weeks

<t>dd #1 was born at 33 weeks. I had steroid shots on <br/> Sunday and Monday and she was born on Tues. at 3 lbs. 4oz (IUGR).<br/> She was delivered by c-section, and I cried and cried when she was born screaming. It was the most wonderful sound I had ever heard. She was in the NICU for 21 days to l...

Re : Roll Call: who had postpartum preeclampsia?

Pe began at delivery, bp continued to be very high (170/95) for about 6 months until they found the right combo of meds. Then I was back in chronic hypertension mode.

more babies?

<t>I am sure this is probably too early to be thinking about this, but we are considering whether or not to have other children. I say too early because my due date is 2/15, but I am already pondering. I homeschool my children and know a lot of large family units, but they all seem to have homebirth...

Re : What is wrong with me?

I'm a clean freak too! Pregnancy makes it worse, with nesting and all. Now I am bedresting, so I am stressing about what is not clean or will not be clean by the time the baby arrives. I say clean to your heart's content[:D]

I hate to admit this

<t>I hate to admit this, but I am afraid bedrest is going to be the end of the "honeymoon phase" of my marriage. We actually have been married just over three years, but it still felt like a honeymoon to me...until bedrest started 11 days ago. I am a type-A personality magnified by 1000! My husband,...

Re : Is there a such thing as being too cautious?

<t>Thanks for all of the input!<br/> My next appt. is Monday, the 16th. He told me he wants me to come in each Monday for a bpp. I will definitely ask him about the amt. of protein and a 24 hour urine. I did one with my daughter (4500 mg) and was delivered within 2 days. I am absolutely taking it ea...

Re : Is there a such thing as being too cautious?

<t>I have not done a 24 hour urine. After the urine test in the office, I asked if I was spilling protein. He said yes, but that was all. He was in a hurry because his partner unexpectedly retired and he has taken on all of his patients (including me). I wish I had asked more. He mentioned pregnancy...
