I know it shouldn't bother me, but I think so many people just take it for granted that they will have 40+ week, normal pregnancies with beautiful...

Anytime I post anything about the baby or pregnancy, she wants to compare my post to her "normal" pregnancy, and make it seem like my...

Re: Here we go.....

My third pregnancy was totally uneventful. But, she has a different Daddy than the first two. Which we all know changes your chances of having issues with PE/HELLP. My MFM this time told me it was practically statistically impossible for me to have issues with this pregnancy since I didn't with my 3...

Re: 2nd Trimester Dip

Milestones?

I thought it might be helpful to start a topic where we can celebrate the milestones we have hit and affirm what our next milestone will be. I find it helpful to get through the last weeks by finding something to look forward to/strive for. Baby and I hit a major milestone today. I am 31 weeks today...

Re: Pregnant again - what monitoring should I expect ??

It honestly depends on your doctor. But I would not feel comfortable not being monitored closely. You should have at least the protein in your urine monitored at every visit, and several ultrasounds to follow baby's growth.
