Re: New member..checking in

I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my first child at 21 weeks 6 months ago. It was the hardest thing I ever had to go through. Preeclampsia certainly is scary and can happen very quickly. I found this website really helpful. People are always willing to talk and to answer questions. Please feel fre...

Re: Baby Due in March 2013

I'm only 5 weeks and stressing already! I have orthostatic proteinuria which means I already spill when I'm up moving around or sitting but I don't spill protein when I sleep. Already knowing I have some proteinuria makes me worries. My last pregnancy my pregnancy symptoms showed themselves so early...

Re: New Member, 2nd pregnancy

I'm not sure what rolling veins are but I do know that when I lost my baby and was in the hospital it took forever for them to insert the iv and to draw blood. Just a month ago when I went for more blood work I was pricked 5 times before they were able to get two viles of blood. After I lost the bab...

I'm pregnant again!

So after losing our baby at 21 weeks pregnant due to severe pe I'm happy to say we took the plunge and tried to conceive and we were lucky and once again got pregnant right away! I'm 3 weeks and 4 days so I really am just starting my journey but we are so thrilled! I'm worried about what the future ...

Re: When to monitor Bp at home?

I started monitoring once every few days before pregnancy in order to get a really good idea as to what is my "normal" blood pressure. I just found out I'm pregnant so I'm going to begin monitoring more often around 12 weeks. I'll probably start taking it once in the morning when I wake up and then ...

Re: Baby Due in March 2013

I just got a positive on a test this morning. It was rather faint but a positive just the same. If the results are correct I'd be due April 5th although the doctors said they would induce me at 38 weeks so a March baby as well. I'm praying this time we get to bring home a little one. I'll keep you i...

To TTC or not to TTC?

So I've got some news! I met with my MFM on the 18th of June and she said that when the protein in my urine is within the normal range I can try again. I had done a test around June 3rd which showed that I had 440mg proteinuria. She said it could take anywhere from 3-6 more months but she said the l...

Re: 24week 24 hour urine

That's great that your numbers are going down. I'm 4 and a half months postpartum. I still have protein in my urine. A few weeks ago the number was 440. I'll only be allowed to ttc when the number is within the normal range. You're so luck you're doing so well! Hoping that you get your rainbow baby!...

When did you start lovenox, heparin and/or lda

I just had an appointment with my MFM and she said that they want me to start heparin and low dose aspirin when I find out I'm 8 weeks along. I haven't been given the green light to try again just yet but this is the plan. I know that many studies seem to think preeclampsia begins with how the place...

Re: What to do about.......advice

I lost my baby in February at 21 weeks. I hadn't had a baby shower but since it was our first pregnancy we began buying things as soon as we entered the second trimester. We had the room all set up, stroller, car seat, etc. I packed everything away and put it inside the baby's closet however the cri...
