Re : confused

<t>The night sweating is very normal. It happens post-partum even after a normal pregnancy. All pregnant women have fluid to get rid of, due to the blood volume increase in pregnancy. Those of us with pre-eclampsia just have even more of it to sweat out.<br/> <br/> SueAnn<br/> dh Kwame<br/> ds Ezeki...

Re : PG Friend in Thailand w/HBP

<t>I agree that doctors need to define bed rest, otherwise it's easy to do too mcuh. I don't think TV in the lving room is bad though. You don't need to aly in bed staring off into space doing nothing. I spent a good prtion of my ebdrest laying ont he coudh watching tv. It's the laying down that's i...

Re : Pregnant again- High Risk

<t>Oligo can be due to things other than Hypertension, as well. I have a friend who had low fluid in both her pregnancies, but all else was fine. Her first was also worse than her second. She had a scheduled c-section because due to the low fluid her daughter remained breech the whole time. <br/> <b...

Re : Need Help with Breastfeeding!

<t>Can your husband take night duty for awhile? It's much harder for a child to accept that they can't nurse when Mom is right there. Also, many kids are not ready at to wean at one (or under), some are more stubborn that others about it. <br/> <br/> I'm curious did you wean gradually, or all at onc...

Re : Wrist Cuffs

<t>As far as I know you need to wait at least 15 min between readings. otherwise the second reading will be inacurate. You did just artificially consrict the vessels and they need a little time to get over that.<br/> <br/> SueAnn<br/> dh Kwame<br/> ds Ezekiel 1/2/02 (34wks due to pre-e)<br/> #2 EDD ...

Re : Roll Call

<t>I am early in my 2nd pregnancy (10 weeks.) In my foirst pregnancy my bp fiorst went high at 27 weeks, it fluctuated a lot after that. Stress and activity were not helpful at that point. At 32 weeks I showed protien in my urine, although my labs looked good, and was put on bed rest. I spent 2 week...

<t>I was induced at 34 weeks 1 day. He was 4 lb 4 oz, but had breathing troubles and was on a vent at first (had to transfer to a different hospital!) Once off the vent he did really well and was home in 2 weeks (at 4 lb 7oz, he lost before he gained.)<br/> <br/> Now, 2 years later, thankfully it's ...

Re : A few ?'s, my third time around!

<t>The headaches aren't going to necessarily be directly related to blood pressure. But, they also say that a pre-e headache is severe and doesn't go away with tylenol and laying down in a dark room. Pay attention to the headaches (how severe, how they go away) and mention them to your doctor (just ...

Re : breast pumps, although a little off topic

<t>Since, ideally, your baby will be getting your milk supply started, then you probably won't need a hospital grade pump. Those of us who pumped before we ever nursed became good friends with the Medela hosptial grade pump, but for part time pumping a Pump-in-Style should be good enough. Some have ...

Re : breast pumps, although a little off topic

<t>Medela pumps are great. If you are planning to carry it to/from work then I recommend buying one. The rentals are quite heavy. The ones you purchase come contained in carrying case, with a place to store the bottles etc.<br/> <br/> <br/> SueAnn<br/> dh Kwame<br/> ds Ezekiel 1/2/02 (34wks due to p...
