Re : pre-eclamptic seizures

<t>I do not know the answer to this but am curious about the answer also. I had undiagnosed PE and did end up having a siezure at home. During the day though I did have a massive headachae that tylenol didn't make a dent in and started seeing a blinking spot in my vision. I believe that it probably ...

Re : State Eval. vs. Hospital Eval.

<t>I only had state evaluation for my DD so not sure about hospital. But I do know the state evaluation had like 4 different parts to it. They charted different area's like fine motor skills, gross motor skills etc. Each section was taken individually and I do beleive you had to only be below "avera...

Re : Every twinge/twitch= stress

<t>Oh my I was right there also. As soon as I hit 20 weeks I was looking at my feet, hands and everythingelse. That same week we had the big u/s and I got to see my son and according to the measurements they took he was measuring at 21wks. My doc has been great and she's like we're not going to know...

Re : Ready to try again...

<t>I don't think there is anything that can take away the fear, I wish there was. With a history of PE there is always a chance of reoccurrence no matter how slim. My DH and I had all sorts of discussion and went to preconception counseling before deciding to try again. We realized it was also a now...

Re : Hello new here, just experienced HELLP

<t>Congratulations on your DD. My daughter was a micro-preemie also. She had one surgery in the hospital to fix the duct in the heart that normally closes on its own in term babies (shorthand it's called PDA, and very common in preemies.) Everyday is scary because you worry so much about how they ar...

Re : Is my bp too low?

<t>I asked my doc about what was to low because I was getting readings at home of low 100's/60's when normally I'm at least 110's/mid 60's (of course in the office I jump to low 130's/low 80's). Anyhow, she said unless I feel dizzy, weak or faint then there is no problem with having some low reading...

Re : Weight at one year

<t>My DD is almost 5yrs old and is about 30lbs and 43" tall. She was very early and a mirco preemie. But some of it is genetics, both my husband and I were term babies, but tall and thin until puberty hit. Our ped's have never been worried as long as she continues to grow in an upward curve. For wei...

Re : I can't help but freak out today

<t>Everyone "shows" differently. I am a bit overweight (so tend to have a bit bigger clothes but not much), am currently 23wks pregnant and I am still wearing all my normal clothes. My pants feel a little tight at the waist when I sit for and extended period of time but other then that I don't reall...

Re : not really pain, just a bit uncomfortable

<t>I was still uncomfortable and things felt weird on Sunday after I did laundry. The new house is 2stories and I had to carry laundry upstairs on Sunday. Sunday night I was having a bit more uncomfortable pain. I was almost on the verge of going to the ER but it was still intermittent discomfort. S...
