Re: Indicators at Anatomy Scan

It wouldn't be unreasonable to ask for a copy of the ultrasound report. I was routinely given a copy of my reports right away.

Re: Ugggh!!!

I am so sorry you suffered ptsd and that your son had a complicated nicu stay. Perhaps a group for people who have had ptsd would be helpful to you? It might be encouraging for you to connect with other mothers whose babies have been born at 37 weeks. They would understand your specific concerns. I ...

Re: Ugggh!!!

I don't know anything about guest's claims about the blog I linked. Since this site is about supporting moms who have had preeclampsia I removed the links because supporting moms is more important than debating about a blog. Please feel free to edit your posts also so the links are not available.

Re: Ugggh!!!

My youngest was born at 33 weeks and I had hoped to get further in the pregnancy. I second guessed the decision even though I knew it was in the best interest for both of us.

I don't know what happened during your son's nicu stay, but I'm sorry it was such a bad time for you.

Re: superimposed PET versus severe pre-e

"There is ample evidence that preeclampsia may occur in women already hypertensive (i.e., who have chronic hypertension) and that the prognosis for mother and fetus is much worse than with either condition alone." Caryn, can you venture a guess as to why the prognosis would be worse with both condit...

Re: How often do you monitor your BP?

During pregnancy, morning, midday, and evening. Also, if I just felt "off". Non-pregnant with cht, randomly.

Re: Advice requested

Since you were able to deliver around 37 weeks and it was only mild I wouldn't let that stop me from a much wanted baby. My mfm delivered my youngest at 33 weeks and he said it was okay if I have another one.

Re: superimposed PET versus severe pre-e

Thanks, your definition of OP sounds right (had a previous baby sunny side up). For whatever reason, they do foley inductions at this hospital frequently. Glad I had the epi. so I didn't feel a thing.
