medical records/postpardum

<t>I need some rational advice. I am 12 weeks postpardum<br/> <br/> First, like most of us, I was pretty traumatized by preE and the delivery, etc. My pressures remained high for a good 4 weeks. A week after I delivered, I saw my ob for a quick followup to my pressures. He told me, "see you at 6 wee...

Re : Factor V and Lovenox

<t>Laura, I have factor V, homozygous (which is 2 copies of the gene) and all I took was the baby aspirin during my last pregnancy. At 5 weeks had an u/s and they could see the heartbeat, mfm didn't think it was necessary to prescribe the lovenox since the pregnancy was viable. I continued to take b...

Re : my baby is 2!!! anxiety still?!

<t>Happy 2nd Bday to your son!!!! LOVE LOVE the kids birthdays. <br/> <br/> <br/> I would NOT hesitate to take a xanax to help relax you - NOT more than .5 mg. I was told it does NOT bring you BP down. It will help you relax and bring your heart rate down, but as I understand it, will not affect the...

Re : Diagnosed after the fact

<t>me too, glad you are better!<br/> <br/> I've been trying to keep up w/your story along the way. <br/> <br/> My doc told me I shouldn't have more babies either. That was sort of hard to hear. Though I already thought I wouldn't, it was just sort of hard to hear.<br/> <br/> Keep on checking in.</t>

Re : Concerning symptoms?

<t>Had the same exact thing happen to me the night before the doctor forced my little guy out - 3 weeks ago.<br/> <br/> Had a chest xray and had some fluid beginning to build. <br/> <br/> I delivered at 33 weeks exactly. Son spent 18 days in the NICU learning to feed and getting rid of jaundice. He ...

Re : Deliver before PE gets bad?

<t>I am in agreement with all these women who do say we sometimes have to trust the MD and do what is best for mom. And I totally get that this disease is so sudden and things do change in a matter of minutes.<br/> <br/> I just want to add one additional point/tool to consider. I never knew what the...

Re : Deliver before PE gets bad?

<t><br/> I can only guess it has to do with your OB. My ob was so very conservative. He kept telling me I wouldn't make it past 32 weeks. Made it to a whole 33 weeks. I was watched extremely close. Two to three times per week. The week before I got really sick, I asked if it was REALLY necessary to ...
