Re : Weaning and Sleeping

<t>It's good that you're starting early so you can wean gradually. I weaned over a one month period with my youngest daughter. I still don't think that was long enough, because it left me VERY full and sore, even though I cut out one feeding per week. My baby took right to bottles without a second t...

Re : PROJECTED RESULTS!!!!!!!!!!!

<t>Wow! That's great! <br/> <br/> I have some more donations that I just got this past weekend in the mail that I'll be sending.<br/> <br/> I was wondering about the date for next year's event. Isn't that the weekend of the Walk for the Cure? That's a huge thing in Columbus, OH and I believe it's th...

Re : have question for those who have been pg after pre

<t>I had eclampsia with my first pregnancy and delivered at 34 weeks. My second pregnancy was perfectly normal with no complications at all. I understand your worry as I went through the same thoughts during my second pregnancy. But things turned out wonderfully! Good luck to you!<br/> <br/> Stephan...

Re : anyone else paranoid about bc failures (long)

<t>I know exactly what you mean. I had my tubes tied after my last pregnancy and I am still paranoid that I could get pregnant. I've seen way too many episodes of maternity ward when a 40 year old woman has had her tubes tied for years and is pregnant with her 5th child. YIKES! I'm not sure what I c...

Re : Baby Aspirin (81 mg)

<t>Doctors' opinions on this subject differ greatly. I am on 81 mg for life so I took it throughout my entire pregnancy. Definitely consult your dr as it also depends on each individual person's case.<br/> <br/> Stephanie<br/> <br/> Casey - DD born 12/25/02 at 6 weeks premature due to eclampsia<br/>...

Re : Anticoagulation postpartum?

<t>Melody - Normally one would continue to be on blood thinners after delivery for at least 6 weeks, since the chance of a clot is greatest at that point. Your body is trying to heal, as after any surgery, your blood will clot more easily so that it can heal quicker.<br/> <br/> Stephanie<br/> <br/> ...

Re : Need some help w/ yucky meds

<t>Our pharmacy at Giant Eagle grocery store has a menu on the wall with all the flavors that you can make your medicine. Maybe that would work??

Re : 2005 Annual Conference - check in here

<t>My DH and I have been to Oglebay quite a few times as it's only a few hours away from our house. We would like to come for the conference, but probably will only be able to attend one of the days due to work constraints. Would it be possible to only attend one day?<br/> <br/> Stephanie<br/> <br/>...

Re : can't let go...

<t>Unfortunately that feeling doesn't go away, but it does lessen. My mom always told me that no one will take care of your child the way that you do, and she's right! But we did lots of interviewing and eventually found a babysitter for our now 10-month old and our 2 year old goes to a daycare. I s...

Blood thinners help blood pressure?

<t>I was on Lovenox/Heparin during my second pregnancy due to eclampsia with my first pregnancy and Factor V Leiden. My sister is currently pregnant with her first and she is also on Lovenox for her Factor V Leiden. Her blood pressure is beginning to rise (among other problems!) so she's on complete...
