Re : First Postpartum visit w/ MFM

<t>As Caryn said, without a clotting disorder, it's considered too risky to use Lovenox rather than aspirin. Blood thinners in pregnancy are all about risks vs. benefits--we all want to have successful pregnancies, but we need to preserve our health as well.<br/> <br/> A 50% recurrence rate is a sca...

Re : Risks of blood thinners

<t>Bleeding is actually a VERY good reason to be careful with blood thinners. Using Lovenox is all about risks vs. benefits--and without a clotting disorder, the risks tend to outweigh the benefits. Research also doesn't seem to support Lovenox playing a role in preventing preeclampsia in the absenc...

Re : Eye twitching

<r>Generally speaking, eyelid twitches are caused by fatigue & stress. See <URL url="http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000756.htm"><LINK_TEXT text="http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency ... 000756.htm">http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000756.htm</LINK_TEXT></URL> f...

Re : question about circumcision

<t>Both my boys were circumcised by the pediatrician. It probably does differ between NICUs (for the record, SaraB and I both had the same NICU) and doctors. And I don't think it's at all silly for you to want your boys to be the same--that's the primary reason my sons are circed. With #1 it was to ...

Re : Angry, numb and confused - UPDATE

<t>Like Kim and Frasiah, I opted for a D&C when I miscarried at 14 weeks. I felt like I couldn't possibly begin any sort of emotional healing process without it and I also wanted to cling to what little I could still control, if that makes any sense.<br/> <br/> Whatever decision you make, it wil...

Re : HELLP...how many times have you had it?

<t>I had HELLP in my second pregnancy (first and third were miscarriages) at 19.5 weeks, but went on to have 2 successful pregnancies (by successful, I don't mean full-term). I had started to trend toward HELLP in my 4th (elevated liver enzymes), but my membranes ruptured before I had significant pr...

Re : Feel bad about visitors

<t>Jamie, I'm pretty sure I spent the first month in sweats after losing Maggie. Showering sounds incredibly ambitious. In fact, I spent the first week home at my parents' house because I was, quite frankly, completely unable to care for myself. Bottom line, like everyone said, is to take care of yo...
