Re: Preeclampsia Associated W/ Persistent Postpartum Cardiov

My OB just had me get an EKG, but I haven't gotten the results yet. She is very cautious and has had me get every test imaginable to get a baseline of my health for this pregnancy, in case I develop PE again. She ordered it when she realized my nephrologist hadn't ordered one yet. I was seeing a nep...

Re: Has anyone watched the Disney movie Up?

I saw this movie about six months after I had a miscarriage in my first pregnancy. I was babysitting my brother's three children for a week and I decided to watch it with the kids because they liked it and I had heard good things about it.

You are so lucky the mag didn't bother you much! I was on the mag for three days before delivery and a few days after. It made me rea...

Re: Intro- New here

Hi Katie, I hope all is well! 34 weeks is a great place to be, so try not to worry too much (I know that is almost impossible, but you should try anyway). In my first successful pregnancy (I had one prior miscarriage) I had severe preeclampsia and ended up delivering at 29 weeks 6 days. We were also...

Re: Question about kidney disease risk factor

Thanks for the link, Teresa, and thanks to both you and Libby for the support! That study seemed to indicate that kidney donors have better outcomes before donation than the general population (probably due to the screening process that rules out a number of risk factors), but after donation their o...

Question about kidney disease risk factor

Hello! I'm new to this forum so I will give you a little background before I ask my question. I'm sorry if this is a little long. Last year I developed preeclampsia sometime between my 25 week and 29 week appointments. Through my 25th week my blood pressures and urine tests were completely normal. A...
