Re : Good and Bad, but SHE is here!

brandi, what a crazy crazy ride!! So glad you're home and delivered and out of the worst of pregnancy. And I hope that baby girl is home with you soon, snuggling and giving you lots of love! I'll be thinking about you!

Re : Sorry, Another BP question

Reading this thread reminds me that my tubal ligation last week was a very, very, very good choice. :-)

How far along are you, brandi? I'm anxious to hear some good news about a healthy baby from you soon.

Happy Arrival

<t>After 10 weeks of bed rest and PIH and stress, my baby girl is here. Amnio looked good at 38w3d (but just barely!) so I delivered at 38w4d. Baby girl was 7 lb 4 oz and perfect! She is a true delight and worth all the pregnancy agony. I am typing with one hand and cradling her with the other.<br/>...

Re : Does Exercise Help with P.E or make it Worse?

<t>My OB told me that exercise stimulates hormones, which increases blood pressure. So all forms of exercise have been forbidden while I've been on bed rest.<br/> <br/> Those BPs would probably get you classified (though I really don't know.. just a guess) as a chronic hypertensive which puts you in...

Re : Are there warning signs?

<t>I thought everyone was just making a big ado about nothing. I had no idea that I was really sick and just thought any symptoms I had were normal pregnancy things. I didn't see it coming at all and was in total shock when the doctor told me I was going to deliver right away because of my blood tes...

Re : How quickly can it happen? (update at end)

<t>Better. Feeling very peaceful about the decision to do an amnio on Monday and getting some last-minute work done (thank you notes mailed, bank accounts balanced, sending husband to buy treats for older kids' soccer games next week...)<br/> <br/> I'm hoping the amnio will give us a green light on ...

Re : How many C-SECTIONS have you had?

Planning on #3 in the next week (hopefully). My previous two healed without any complications and are looking beautiful. I'm getting my tubes tied with this one, so I haven't even thought about it!

Re : Increased heart rate & anxiety revisited

<t>It really is the most frightening part of pregnancy for me. It's horrible to feel like your heart is working so hard that it's just going to jump out of your chest. Sometimes it feels like there is a whole in my chest where my heart is supposed to be--like there is so much pressure that it just g...
