Re : 30 is the new 15

<t>Oh, heck, I'm turning 39 in a few days and I can't wait. I never thought I'd live to see 40; I am having a HUGE party next year, I'm already planning it!<br/> <br/> Someone asked me recently if I'd go back to 15 or even 25 and I said absolutely not! I am so much more, as Sonja said, "comfortable ...

Re : Why do I even try???

<t>Oh, and of course the one other thing that helps me in my arguments with these people is that I have now had 6 kids and I had PE every time [and I've tried every "fix" suggested LOL!].

Re : Why do I even try???

<t>Oh, I *hear* you and I agree. It is SO frustrating!<br/> <br/> I work with pregnant women all the time, so I can't avoid the issue even when I get sick of it.

Re : cloth diapers

<t>I used them with my first 3 and loved them, but finally gave up when I had 3 in diapers at once and couldn't keep up with the laundry! ;) <br/> <br/> But I definitely recommend them - especially considering how the price of disposables is going up even more now!

Re : Things you wished you knew about preeclampsia...

<t>Hope I'm not too late, but...<br/> <br/> I would have liked for my nurses and doctors to understand the correct way to take blood pressure and to understand that if they were able to artificially lower my blood pressure by lying me on my side and taking it on my top arm and get a lower reading - ...

Re : Induction metohds- input please

<t>The most common thing used is prostaglandins [cervadil or prepadil], which is inserted vaginally and help soften the cervix. Some women go into labor with this and some just soften up or dilate a little bit. This method is not generally considered risky in women who do not have a prior Cesarean. ...

Re : Wish me luck-1 hr gluclose test in AM

Oh, I definitely hope you pass. I always have to do the 3 hour [and I always pass it], and it is just such a pain!
