Update & Question

I had to share... my AFP this pregnancy was normal! Last pregnancy, it came back with elevated risk for Down Syndrome. I looked and my Inhibin-A levels were really high and the MoM was 2.57. This time is was 1.4, which I think is a good sign? I don't know much about all this but it came back normal,...

Re: Here we go again!

Thanks so much for responding! I figured there wasn't much evidence to the Brewer's diet working anyway. Oh well. As far as the HCTZ, I've spoken with two MFM's. One said the HCTZ was fine in pregnancy and the other said that it wasn't "recommended" because of fluid levels and such. I'm just staying...

Here we go again!

I just found out I am pregnant with #2. I'm due 9/2/12. This pregnancyw as COMPLETELY unexpected but a blessing nonetheless. I'm VERY nervous but optimistic about making it to full term pre-e free. I'm scheduling an appt with the MFM to discuss Lovenox injections and such. Currently I'm taking: Labe...

Re: 2nd visit with MFM after tests?

Thank you for your response! I'm so happy to hear you made it almost full term! That's great! I know that the use of Lovenox for this is controversial and it may not even make a difference. But I feel like if I don't do it, then I will regret it. I've researched this A LOT and I feel like the potent...

2nd visit with MFM after tests?

My husband and I are going to start trying for #2 in March. I've already met with 2 MFMs and gathered information, formed a plan, etc. BUT since I met with the last one, I was diagnosed with homozygous C677T MTHFR (apparently the worst one). I know there are varying opinions on this but given my his...

Re: Upsetting news may close the door to Baby #2

Yes, don't rule out another pregnancy just yet! Obviously, you need to get your pressures under control before you conceive again but once they are controlled, then you are good to go. You will be monitored more closely but that's all.

Re: How long did you wait to TTC after loss, classical incis

I didn't have a loss but I did have a classical incision with the birth of my daughter April 2011. I recently met with 2 MFMs and they both said that they recommended waiting 18 months in between pregnancies (that is from the time your previous pregnancy started. So, for instance, I got pregnant in ...

MFM vs. OB or Both?

We aren't TTC yet but I am trying to get my ducks in a row before we start in April. When I saw my OB for my pp appointment last year, she basically asked me if I was ready to have my tubes tied. I was shocked. She said that she recurrence rate for me is too high and she wants me to know that. I def...

Re: Weight Loss Buddies - Fall 2012

Tree- That's great advice about the fruits and veggies being "free"- I will definitely try that. 1200 calories is pretty restrictive but unfortunately, for me, it's all or nothing. I either have to restrict my eating for every meal or I fall apart. Once I start to lose though, that's enough motivati...

Re: Weight Loss Buddies - Fall 2012

I'll join you guys! I'm wanting to lose 15-20lbs before TTC in April. My current weight is 155 and I'm 5'4". This is actually what I weighed before I got pregant in 2010 with DD but I really would like to start the next pregnancy at a healthier weight. My goal is to get my BMI right at or less than ...
