Re : Preemie sleep patterns.

<t>My daughter was born at 33 wks, and for the first 6 weeks she slept about 23 out of the 24 hours... she slept all the time! We had to wake her up 90% of the time to feed her.<br/> <br/> Then about 3 days before her due date, something in her body must have clicked and she started acting just like...

Re : Did anyone see the ER episode?

<t>That really upsets me that some of you ladies were kicked out during doctor rounds. I feel that we know the subtle changes of our baby's more than any doctor or nurse, and should be able to express our thoughts. <br/> <br/> I was allowed to stay at my daughter's bedside (incubator side) during al...

Re : Question

<t>Your blood pressure is up, but really not as high as most doctors will make you go to induce you... but what is not normal is the headache. With my 2nd daughter, the doctor was going to monitor me in the hospital and let me go for another week (with b/p's of around 170's/110's), but what made her...

Re : How many women here had a c-section due to Pre e

Plus, my epidural never worked, although at the time I thought it had (was having back labor, and during the 2 hours they...
