Re : I am back unfortunately

<t>That's great news :) My legs started puffing in the early 20 something week period and I freaked out (of course!) and saw the doc immediately, convinced that PE was upon me. But no. You see, *normal* pregnant women get puffy too :) Something that I hadn't even contemplated. I hope that's what it ...

Re : We have a HB

<t>I've already sent my congrats :) But wanted to say that I found, after 30 weeks of taking the stuff, that injecting slowly seemed to reduce the incidence of bruising. I was also told not to 'lose' the air bubble - something I'm so used to doing after all those years of insulin. Gosh I'm excited f...

Re : 8 months postpartum and still protein in urine

Hi, it took 2 years for mine to clear, but then it did perfectly. Just took time :)

Re : Protein in Urine

Hi, 2 years (after some pretty severe protein levels). Apparently not out of the norm at all - the body takes time to heal.

Re : How many C-SECTIONS have you had?

I'd always heard the 2-3 message too (and I've had 2 so far) - but reading of 7 and 10!!! ;) Crikey - that's awesome :)

Re : Im New and I have 1 Question

I agree too - you aren't overreacting. You're reporting what you think might be symptoms of 'something' and it's better that the docs decide what is and isn't important right now - you just keep doing a great job of cooking that bubba :)

Baby safely here :)

<t>Hi ladies,<br/> I wanted to pop in and say an enormous THANK YOU to all the kind souls who reassured me that the nervous (terrified) moments I had throughout my pregnancy were "normal". <br/> 2 weeks ago this Sunday we welcomed a daughter to the world, a little earlier than we'd expected at 34+1 ...

Re : 29wk4 visit - PE in the wings?

<t>Hi,<br/> BP was down to 140/74.... yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy :) They were happy with that. May it stay like that for another few (or 5) boring weeks!<br/> Thanks for your support ladies. I belong to a *regular* pregnancy board but talking to them about stuff like this just wouldn't work because ...

Re : 29wk4 visit - PE in the wings?

Thanks Ladies :) I'll keep you posted after the home visit tomorrow... fingers crossed but keeping in perspective - 1 more day off 30wks and 3lb 11... that should be my new mantra :)
