Re : How to prepare myself for pregnancy help!!

<t>I think you have excellent concerns and that they are best addressed with your MFM. Every situation is unique - and every woman's body responds differently and has different needs.<br/> <br/> I was not advised to take any additional vitamins other than a prenatal for either pregnancy. And when I ...

Re : Wierd pressures?

<t>Have you asked your MFM how he actually feels about this pregnancy? I mean, we know there is no crystal ball but we still can form opinions on how things might go, right? <br/> <br/> I know that when I was checking my BPs I had to sit for a few minutes before taking it or it would be pretty high....

Re : Before getting pregnant?

<t>I had sections with both pregnancies - Henry was due to my not progressing after maxing out on all the goodies and my water breaking on its own (he was born at 34+2) and Sofia was due to fetal distress (her umbilical cord was wrapped under her armpits, behind her neck like a backpack).<br/> <br/>...

Re : How to prepare myself for pregnancy help!!

<t>I am not sure what you are looking for, but here goes.<br/> <br/> For me, the most important factor in making the decision to have #2 was to have a plan in place. Yes, being at a healthy weight and just being healthy overall is a good thing, but it will not prevent PE. No diet will prevent PE. An...

Re : Before getting pregnant?

<t>Jen has given you excellent advice.<br/> <br/> I am now chronic, but only since Sofia's birth. But, I was on BP meds during both pregnancies. I have seen no health issues related to my BP meds and have successfully breastfed both children. Weaning seems to be more of my issue - Henry weaned due t...

Re : possible pre-e how to help the pain? 25 1/2 wks pg

<t>The one thing having PE has taught me is to stand up for my medical care.<br/> <br/> While yes, if you were at the hospital they'd be "doing" the same things you are at home, the proximity to emergent care is there - something you don't have at home.<br/> <br/> If it were me, I would go straight ...

Re : I HAD MY BABY GIRL!!! ;)

<t>Congratulations!!!<br/> <br/> We didn't know what to name Sofia when she was born. We were torn between 2 names - Sofia or Francesca. I came out of the OR (c-section) and hubby was holding her. He choose the name Sofia ... though I confess sometimes I think Francesca fits her better.<br/> <br/> M...

Re : PTSD after PE and Hellp syndrome?

<t>I think in retrospect, after Henry's birth, I was experiencing more PTSD than PPD - but my PPD was severe. <br/> <br/> After Sofia's birth, even though she was full-term, I also experienced PPD. She is 19 months old and I am still on meds. Henry is 4.5 - and I would say it has taken me this long ...
