Re : Heparin AFTER delivering?

<t>Don't know if this is too late, but I have Factor V Leiden and I was on Lovenox 6 weeks post-partum. That's pretty normal, since your blood is more likely to clot for the 6 weeks after delivery.<br/> <br/> Stephanie<br/> <br/> Casey - DD born 12/25/02 at 6 weeks premature due to eclampsia<br/> Be...

Re : haven't been on in a while.. need advice..

<t>I have experience with in-home care for my baby currently and a daycare situation for my 2-year old. The items you've mentioned are common to most daycares, with the exception of your provider's sick child. When interviewing prospective babysitters for my baby, I knew that our current sitter prov...

Re : Postpartum Headaches!!

<t>I had post partum headaches that were pretty severe. They were due to hormone changes. They were so bad that I had to close all the blinds and just sleep. I couldn't do anything else. I was examined by a neurologist and he suggested they could be migraines, but they only lasted about 2 weeks, the...

Re : Doc wants to deliver at 34 weeks

<t>I just wanted to let you know that I delivered my first daughter at 34 weeks. She was 4 lbs, 3 oz and very healthy. She did stay in the NICU for about a week so that she could learn to eat from the bottle. I wanted to give you a little comfort if you do deliver at 34 weeks in knowing that my baby...

Re : Lupus headaches vs. PE headaches?

<t>I can't attest to anything relating to Lupus headaches, but I'm very familiar with the pre-e headache. Tylenol will not help a pre-e headache. My pre-e headache was due to severe swelling around my brain. It was at the base of my head close to my neck. It throbbed non-stop for 5 days and NOTHING,...

Re : Anyone been turned down for life insurance b/c PE?

<t>I applied for life insurance a few months ago. I was very open about my health problems, including eclampsia. I was approved with no problems. I did pay a higher premium, because of the eclampsia and other health problems though. My DH works for an insurance brokerage firm. He said I wouldn't hav...

Re : Daycare for a former preemie

<t>We put our daughters in a babysitter until 18 months and them moved them (well the oldest one so far) to a day care center. We felt like a babysitter would be able to give our preemie more one on one time when she was so young and needy. Our daycare centers in Ohio can have up to 6 babies per per...

Re : Saving Money for baby

<t>We have 529 plans set up for both of our daughters. If something happens that your kids decide not to go to college, you still get the money back. After the 529 plan was explained to us, it was a pretty easy decision that that would be the best way for us to go. I highly recommend sitting down wi...
