Re : Just diagnosed with preeclampsia, UPDATE!!!

<t>I havent heard of a connection between anemia and PE. Anemia is very common among pregnant ladies though. I have to take an additional iron pill everyday. <br/> Maybe at your next appt you can talk about being admitted for bedrest if you arent comfortable at home. Am I remembering right that you ...

Re : Just diagnosed with preeclampsia, UPDATE!!!

I am also shocked you arent admitted today. I was hoping all weekend that today you would be admitted at least for 24 hours for a 24 hour urine and to watch your BP for that time period. How far along are you now?

Re : Can a Dr tell you if you will get PE?

<t>No percentage can really be told to a patient for PE and HELLP Ive noticed there really isnt a rhyme or reason for it. Some women will know for the most part that it will most likely happen due to underlying conditions like Caryn said. You could also see 4 different OB/Peris and get 4 different a...

Re : Baby passed away one week ago

<t>I am so sorry for your loss and it breaks my heart that you have had to find these Forums. <br/> These questions are all normal to have and you will have more along the way as well. I am 8 years out from losing my 1st son and 9 months from my 2nd and I still have questions everyday for each of my...

Re : Cousin admitted

She was just taken into surgery to deliver. She is 1 day short of 27 weeks and went into HELLP. I really hope her little one is one of the miracles who makes it home from the NICU.

Re : Just diagnosed with preeclampsia, UPDATE!!!

Re : Cousin admitted

<t>Its hard for me to think about the happy endings for early preemies like this because I delivered at 27 weeks and he was only with us for a week and our last son was stillborn at 25 weeks. I really hope she delivers and they both do good. The NICU is amazing and the staff has already been down. I...

Re : Just diagnosed with preeclampsia, UPDATE!!!

<t>it goes very quickly and you def should not wait, its much better to be safe. My pregnancies went from bad to worse in a matter of like an hour and I was in the hospital on bedrest. I also had no warning signs even in the hospital with 3000 protein in my urine I didnt "feel" or look sick. Just ho...

Cousin admitted

<t>Well I just found out my husbands cousin is admitted into the hospital with PE, I thought she was almost at the end but I called and talked to her and she is only going to be at 27 weeks on Monday. Her protein levels are already up over 3000. She seems like she is in good spirits, she had it with...
