PE on the Today show!!

<t>Did anyone see the story about miracle baby Courtney this morning? It showed she and her parents and the neonatologist- she is now 3 and doing great. They reviewed the story and said that her mom had Eclampsia (4 seizures before getting to the hospital) at 23 weeks. It was a great story and also ...

Re : Teething and your preemie

<t>Emily Kate got her first two teeth at the same time (4.5 months). (Bottom two incisors). After that, she I guess she felt like 2 teeth were inadequate...so she got 6 (SIX!!) in at the same time a few weeks later. She definitely drooled more and there was a definite increase in spit-up. In fact, w...

Do they really understand? (semi-vent!)

<t>Hello everyone,<br/> <br/> Ever since Emily Kate was born (9-23-03, 33 wks, 3.7 lbs), we have been so careful about germs. We do things like wiping down restaurant tables w/ lysol wipes, use a special grocery cart seat cover, staying at a friends home for childcare (w/ 2 other children), etc. We ...

Re : Anyone with reflux experience?

<t>We too are struggling with reflux. Emily Kate has had reflux since she was a month old, and now at 9 months it seems to be getting worse. We tried Zantac last week (for the 1st time) and it actually made her spit up even more! I am hoping for a med change next week! Spitting up all day can't be g...

What are the odds?

<t>Hi everybody!<br/> Finding this board has been an answer to my prayers! It is so good to know that there are others out there who have gone through the same thing as I have.<br/> <br/> I developed pre-eclampsia very quickly at 31 weeks.
