Re: Update: Hospital stay and question

The MFM came over to see me in triage and admitted me saying they were going to take 24 to 48 hours to determine if it was the chronic hypertension or preeclampsia resulting in the higher bp's. If it was the cht, they would have kept me on bed rest at home or in the hospital to buy a bit more time f...

Re: High blood pressure, no pre e...hoping to connect

This is your seventh baby correct? How far along are you right now? A lot of times bp will become unstable (up & down) before it finally stays high. If you are still bleeding right now I would call the doctor, you don't want to ignore that. Does your doctor know you are taking an herb to help keep y...

Re: Ugggh!!!

My 33 weeker did not have severe complications, but it was very hard leaving her every night. Some of her nurses were great and some were not. That is amazing your SIL says they had a good nicu experience. Did they have option to stay 24/7? I would have been so thankful to be able to stay with my d...
