Re : hospitalized with preeclampsia

<t>I am sorry you are in the hospital. It is a hard place to be ( I was hospitalized at 32 weeks too). Basically my BP's and protein kept creeping upward. They monitored me closely and did urine catches and blood draws regularly. It mostly helped me stay honest about bedrest (there's really nowhere ...

Re : Can PE go away?

<t>Have you had a biophysical? At the end of both of my pregnancies they were doing biophysicals weekly. My daughter always did well, but her kick counts were always normal too. My son's kick counts decreased in proportion to a loss of amniotic fluid. That's why they finally delivered him. If you ha...

Re : Can PE go away?

<t>My symptoms got worse and then better many times through my pregnancy. It seemed like they would diagnose PE and then say, no it wasn't after all at least every few weeks. When my BP's started being consistently high they hospitalized me the last time and things seemed to go consistently downhill...

Re : Pulmonary Edema?

<t>I had pulm edema right at the end of my second pregnancy. I happened quickly and the pain was intense. When I called for the nurse (I was hospitalized at the time) she listened to my chest and knew right away that that was what it was. It is unmistakable and the pain felt like pressure and drowni...

Re : update from doctor this morning

<t>One thing to remember about protein levels and weight gain as well, both respond to hydration. Make sure you are drinking lots and lots of water. The more water I drank (steadily through the day) the more level my protein and swelling stayed. Maybe you could check with your docs about how much wa...

Re : Special Diet with PIH?

<t>I had PIH with my first pregnancy that developed at about 6 months. The doc took me off salt and wanted me to monitor my diet closely and nothing helped. I felt like I had allowed it to get out of control and blamed myself mercilessly for years. When I got pregnant again I immediately went off sa...

Re : Okay

<t>My first pregnancy never became PE, but I had high blood pressure. The docs saw me more often to watch my BP and they eventually did non-stress tests once a week to monitor the baby. It seemed to all depend on whether I responded to medication and my BP stayed down and how the baby was growing an...

Re : needing prayers...

<t>I don't have any direct experience, so please take my words for whatever they are worth. My son was diagnosed with apraxia at 20 months. That's a neurological problem that causes difficulty planning movement. He didn't speak (or make any sound except "da") until he was 3 and he couldn't be unders...

Re : 18 month old with trouble eating

<t>Julie,<br/> Has anyone you have seen through early intervention been a feeding specialist? If not I would suggest having a meeting with the EI people and reviewing their goals. If they have feeding goals I would question why your little one is not making progress and what is their plan to help. T...
