Re: Swelling early in pregnancy hmmm

Hi I'm fairly new here but I thought I would chime in... I have chronic HTN and I take a medication to help with swelling on a daily basis. I also had severe pre-e at 29 weeks and swelling (pitting edema) started at 24 weeks. So, I'm pretty familiar with swelling, unfortunately. Did you eat a lot of...

Re: Probably unrealistic but... vbac? Anxiety is killing me.

As all of the previous posters have said... I agree that you probably need to see a therapist. I know I did. I had severe PTSD from having my daughter at 29 weeks due to severe pre-e April 2011. I still do to a certain extent. Mine wasn't from the c-section or the fact that she was in the NICU for 8...

Re: What position was your placenta in with your PE?

I had an anterior placenta as well... I never even thought about a coorelation but I did a little google research and I noticed a pattern with anterior placentas and PE. I will definitely be asking MFM about this when I see them July 26th.

Re: Feeling Guilty for Wanting to Try Again

I haven't "been there, done that" but I can say that I know exactly how you feel. I dealt with a lot of PTSD and extreme bitterness that my pregnancy was cut so short. I still go in and check to make sure DD is breathing while she's sleeping. I can't seem to get my mind to turn off the "A's and B's"...

What specific tests?

What blood tests will the MFM order before TTC again after pre-e? I know they will test for autoimmune and blood clotting disorders but does anyone know what specific tests they order? I was going to go ahead and have the doctor that I work with order the blood work so it would be ready when I see M...

Re: Chronic HTN

Thank you so much ladies! I will definitely wait and see what MFM says. I'm not going to give up hope just get. I did actually see a different OB than the one that delivered DD and she told me that my previous OB "wasn't too off base with suggesting a tubal because the risks are so high" She also to...

Chronic HTN

Hi guys! I thought I would introduce myself. I've been lurking for a little while. My name is Leslie, I'm 25, from NC and I had my daughter, April 24, 2011 at 29w1d due to severe pre-e. I have chronic HTN (and have since I was 17 & 30lbs lighter, it's hereditary) I had swelling that started pretty e...
