TSH levels and PE?

Hi ladies! First, let me just say that the problem with having PE in my first pregnancy is that I worry about every little thing that seems out of the norm in this, my second pregnancy... So, TSH levels... I was put on daily medication (the brazilian equivalent of syntroid?) Euthyrox 75 mg after my ...

Red Raspberry leaf Tea???? What's the deal?

I am 20 weeks along and I've been really craving my daily green tea, but since it has caffeine I tried to find an alternative hot drink to ease my craving... Lo and Behold, I found articles on Red Raspberry Leaf tea, including its effect on lowering blood pressure and possibly helping to prevent PE....

Aspirin Help, please?

Hi ladies, I have been delaying the decision to take or not to take LDA during this pregnancy long enough. I saw a specialist (not my current OB, he's in a different town) who told me to take it starting at 12 weeks, and my OB has basically said that although he doesn't believe that LDA will help, h...

Re: feeling helpless... HELP!

I'm sorry you feel so helpless. You have a right to be concerned and your worries shouldn't be discarded as pregnancy jitters, that said, are you expressing this level of concern with your doctor or do you feel somehow "castrated" when in front of your OB? I know, for me, I would often feel that my ...

Hey everyone, I am 5 weeks pregnant, Hurray! and the incessant internet search for answers has begun. I am always looking for anything, any new supplement, advice, any testimonials, anything at all that may grant me some sense of control over PE (even if they are completely unfounded in the end), I ...

Re: Huge Set Back with My Baby

How wonderful to hear some positive news after I am sure must have been *. NICU experience is fraught with ups and downs, my Dr. used to say two steps forward, one step back... So, hang in there!

You'll be in my prayers.

COq10?

I just read a post on a mommy who is full term (37 weeks) and took COq10.... Can anyone give me more information as to how to take this supplement and how far along to do it?

Thanks

I'm pregnant!

Here we go... How strange it feels this time around, with my first pregnancy when I found out, I was filled with excitement and anticipation, after HELLP and an abruption, I must say when I peed on that stick and it came back positive, I was and still am totally numb. It's not even fear yet, or even...
