Re : Question for you, Julie..

<t>I know exactly where all of you are coming from. I remember that my DH and I went to a historic site about a month after we lost Allison and the docent asked if we had any children. At the time, we said "No". That hurt me so much to say that so now when people ask if this pregnancy is our first, ...

Re : Kicked my MIL out

<t>Boy, I would say that you did the exact right thing to do. The absolute last thing that you need is any more stress than what you already have. It seems to me that if your MIL had any consideration in her what-so-ever, that she would have realized what she was doing to you and that precious grand...

Re : Due in January or February 2005?

<t>Hi Everyone!<br/> <br/> Just thought that I would give y'all a quick update on today's appointment. BP was great as was urine and growth is right on track -- I am 26 weeks and 3/4 days and Alexandra was at the same. The weight estimate is 2 pounds, 2 ounces right now and there was plenty of fluid...

Re : another clotting question, of course!

<t>From what I understand I am heterozygous for MTHFR and the PAI-1 gene mutations. If I recall, my PAI activity levels were somewhat elevated and the homocystine levels were high normal. Thus, with all of that, I am doing Lovenox injections twice daily. <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> Kim<br/> Mother to <b...

Re : Heparin shots? Waste of time? or Lifesaver?

<t>I can not say yet that the Lovenox (low molecular weight form of Heparin) shots that I am taking have completely staved off pre-eclampsia as I have only reached 26 weeks. However, I can say that I have made it farther this time than previously and that this daughter's growth has been much better ...

? re Lovenox and Scarring/Bruising

<t>At the last appointment, the u/s tech mentioned that I was getting alot of scar tissue due to the Lovenox shots and that those spots were making the u/s interesting. [:I] Anyway, I was just wondering if anyone else on Lovenox or Heparin has been developing scar tissue or really hard spots under t...

Re : Due in January or February 2005?

<t>Well, so far so good. My BP was up a bit at the doctor's this morning -- my theory is that the stupid traffic raised it some (I was getting a bit nervous that I would not make it in time), but my readings at home have been great! My peri was quite pleased with that. Another u/s was done this morn...

Re : Blood Typing and Direct Antiglobulin Test

<t>I hope that I did not "get anyone in trouble". [:(] I was just looking for more general word of mouth information rather than the super duper expert opinions (sometimes I have learned more from other folks' experiences than the experts). <br/> Considering that the medical experts that I have seen...

Re : Blood Typing and Direct Antiglobulin Test

<t>Well, I guess that I am getting into the conversation a little late, but from what was described above, this sounds like what I was told was "ABO Incompatibility". Is this correct? The ABO incompatibility is of particular interest to me since I was the recipient of a complete blood transfusion at...
