Re : Having nightmares about previous delivery...

<t>I'm a little late here but I had the same issue with my 2nd pregnancy. I did get through it! <br/> <br/> For the delivery I found a doula who was willing to work in a hospital with a high risk pregnancy. I started looking for one when I was about 20 weeks along. Not everyone was comfortable or wi...

Re : Nervous Father To Be

<t>Hi Scott. This part sucks. It's scary and overwhelming, but there is good news. Your twins sound big to me. I delivered my twins at 29w2d and they were 2lbs 2oz. and 2lbs 4oz. We also spent 11 weeks in the NICU but they came home just after their due date! While not a ride anyone wants to take, y...

Re : Toncils

<t>Hello. Does she snore tremendously? is she a mouth breather? The twins had their tonsils and adenoids out at age 5 but it had to do with sleeping issues. The quantity of food they ate also went way up which was great since they were always small. I don't know if the reason was prematurity but it'...

Re : Spitting Up Issues

<t>My youngest was a spitter and she still is and she's 4. I used more clothes with her than I did with the twins! She was a happy spitter though. The ped said keep watching her growth and development and if she was ok then let's just watch and see. She was happy and growing well so it was mostly an...

Re : What would you do? Your thoughts?

<t>I think it's important to get the underlying tests - you won't be second guessing it. I was also seeing a family dr who delivers and he had no idea about what to test for. He was ok with sending them to me but also said I need to get someone else to interpret the tests. I had to travel 3 hours to...

Re : Does this seem normal? (feeding question)

<t>I took Maeve into the doctor at a check up and asked about overfeeding her (she would have been a few months then) and found out she was at the 50% for weight and height - she just seemed so big after the twins. It's hard to compare a full-term baby after preemie twins! I thought I had things fig...

Re : Slowing growth BEFORE pre-e?

<t>I had a distict growth slowing with my 3rd, but no pre-e. She was delivered early for low amniotic fluid but it was 1 month from when they noticed the growth slowing to when I delivered. Have they looked at how your placenta is functioning? I thought that was what often resulted in growth decreas...

Re : Trying again after twins, chances of preeclampsia?

<t>Hello. I had identical twins in my first pregancy and developed HELLP at 28 weeks, delivered at 29 weeks. My girls were a little bigger than yours but they had an few extra days inside. The specialists told me that twins and first pregnancy were higher risk factors. The way it was described to me...

Re : no underlying disorders

<t>I was approached about participating in a study in Hamilton, Ontario looking at long term effects (heart specifically) after pre-e. They were looking for people who's pregnancy was greater than 10 years ago. I did not qualify as my HELLP was with twins and the pregancy was too recent. The fact th...
