Re: What was your tip-off?

My first tip-off was the weight gain as well. I only gained 30 lbs total, but about half of it was within a week. I went in one day weighing about 140 and the next appointment I was almost 160 and my doctor told me to watch what I eat. Which quite frankly ticked me off because I had been having what...

Re: Heartburn

They did a 24 hour test but that was earlier on in my pregnancy. I think around 28 weeks. They haven't done any bloodwork on me. I guess I need to be a little more assertive with my doctors. They frustrate me. The abdominal pain comes and goes (and has absolutely nothing to do with what I eat or how...

Re: 35 weeks. Thoughts?

The 39 week policy is based on a healthy pregnancy. Any hypertensive condition warrants a 37 week delivery. I don't know the exact names of the policies but I have read them (they are posted in my doctor's office).

Re: she's measuring small

If it makes you feel any better I was told my first was measuring small and she was 8 lbs2oz. I also have to see a specialist because of hypertension.

Re: Pre-E Symptoms at 16 weeks?

I've always read that pre-e presents itself in the latter part of pregnancy (after 20 weeks). As I understand it, it is a disease of the placenta, which doesn't actually take over until some time in the second trimester. Symptoms with my first pregnancy started at 36 weeks and with this one my BP ha...

Re: Growth Scan Accuracy?

My daughter was measuring too small but her doctor told me she should come out to.be about 6.5-7 lbs. Well surprise! She was 8lbs 2oz! The ultrasound predicted this one at 3lbs 1oz at 29 weeks (that seems big to me?) but I don't really trust it after last time.

Re: Heartburn

We'll I took Tums and it did nothing so I went to l&d and all they did was give me a prescription heartburn Med that was disgusting. And did nothing. No protein in urine as of yet and BP was 142/92. Which is pretty high since I'm on 500mg of Aldomet. Guess I'll have to deal with the pain.

Heartburn

I'm currently 31 weeks and 2 days with my second daughter and I'm concerned about the symptoms I'm having. I went to the hospital with my first daughter at 36 weeks because my stomach was hurting me so bad I was not able to eat. They told me it was heartburn and sent me home. I subsequently went bac...
