Re : Birthday gift ideas for 3 year old

<t>If you're looking for a big gift, my son got a kitchen for his 3rd birthday (he chose that over a bike or a tool bench : ) ). Since you have a little girl, you may already have one of those, but it was a big hit at that age.<br/> <br/> He also started to like games somewhere that year - like Go F...

Re : 33 Week appointment update

<t>I totally realize that I only have 4 more weekends to finish the nursery, buy supplies, pack my bag, and get ready for Thanksgiving plus Christmas shopping! : )<br/> <br/> All the while attending soccer games and birthday parties for the kiddo I've already got. It's going to go so fast! <br/> <br...

33 Week appointment update

<t>Baby is measuring right on track at 33 weeks - heart rate is good, and she's head down. My blood sugar is currently controlled with diet alone, and we'll recheck my anemia in 2 weeks.<br/> <br/> My BP in office was 124/74 (fantastic for me - it's usually super high at the doctor), and no protein....

Re : one milestone down, one more to go

<t>Congrats - I love the milestones! I have one next week when I pass 34 weeks. That was the first sign of protein in my urine and where things slowly started turning to PE for me. (I made it to 38)<br/> <br/> I've got my fingers crossed that this time there will be no protein and I'll actually star...

Re : Gestational Diabetes

<t>Several of us have it right now - lots of December moms. We should start a GD support thread! <br/> <br/> I've been able to control mine with diet so far - I was diagnosed 3 weeks ago. It has not really been that big of a deal for me. Since my sugar level is being so well controlled with my diet,...

Re : weight

I think a high BMI is a risk factor for PE. So is age, first pregnancy, having had PE before, etc.

There are lots of risk factors, but some people have all of them and dodge PE.

Others have no risk factors at all and still get it.

Very confusing disease...

Re : Does it ever upset you that it's not easy?

<t>I had hoped that wouldn't sound wrong, but you never know with written word. The person I was talking about was clearly not taking care of herself in many ways. I am by no means thin, and have to work very hard to be an average weight that comes easy to some people.<br/> <br/> I know overweight p...

Re : uh-oh -- not again? -- UPDATE Oct 23 -- PIH?

<t>My personal opinion? Baby is cooked - why wait until you are really sick?<br/> <br/> My PE got worse post partum though, so I'm all about inducing as soon as it makes sense to try to avoid what I went through after my son was born. <br/> <br/> Good luck to you - I know this can be a hard decision...

Re : Does it ever upset you that it's not easy?

<t>I'm a little jealous of my friends for their carefree pregnancies, but I get so much more jealous of people who clearly don't take care of themselves and still have no problems with their pregnancies. <br/> <br/> I have an acquaintence who was quite overweight, smoked, never exercised, probably d...
