Re : deppresed

I completely understand. I had similar feelings with my 2nd pregnancy - yet with patience on my side and the excellent medical care, she was born JUST over full-term - 37+1!

Hang in there ...

Re : Baby Aidyn Back in hospital - Growing to hate PE

<t>(((hugs)))<br/> <br/> Go Aidyn go! (or should I say poop Aidyn poop!) <br/> <br/> Both of my little ones had jaundice - and while I was never told not to BF, I had no problems with using formula to supplement because I knew they just needed to get the bili out of their systems. <br/> <br/> Sounds...

Re : deppresed

<t>My first reaction is to call your MFM - or better yet, go in. Insist they check everything they should (and write down all the things you want them to check while there before you get there so you have a "checklist").<br/> <br/> Don't feel badly about wanting this illness over - delivery is the o...

Re : Incarcerated Uterus? UPDATE and warning

<t>Wow Jamie. Now that your uterus is "out of jail" ;) your bladder can't hold itself? Girl ... :) (I was gonna offer to send you some adult-dipes but well, I guess since I just wrote it I could offer, couldn't I?)<br/> <br/> I haven't been around for sooo long and I come back and CONGRATULATIONS!!!...

Re : Ugh. Should I call?

ITA with Beth - I would call. I agree that it's a pain to go in, knowing (hoping) you'll be sent home but this disease is what it is. And while the constant monitoring really can be unnerving, it really is for a good reason.

I say call.

Re : Successful VBAC especially after 2 C-sections???

<t>(((Thaiba)))<br/> <br/> With Henry, I did get to see him for a few seconds before they whisked him away. But before Sofia was born, I specifically asked if she could be put on my chest before they cleaned her up. The hospital policy was if it was vaginal then the chances were high that she could ...

Re : Successful VBAC especially after 2 C-sections???

<t>I agree with Korie - talk to your doctor. <br/> <br/> But I wouldn't count on it - especially if your first was due in part to a failed induction. Somehow I have it in my head (and I don't know why or from where it comes from) that a failed induction could be indicitive of your body not being abl...

Re : ok here we go again

<t>With Henry, I was very very swollen. I was diagnosed around 28 weeks and went until 34 before delivery. I was miserable and felt very unhealthy.<br/> <br/> With Sofia, I was diagnosed earlier and more severe. But I had absolutely NO swelling! And I felt great - as great as a former-PE mama could ...

Re : does anyone else feel like this?

<t>You've described my journey with PE ... I think all of this is part of the grieving process. Henry is 4.5 and I thought I was past the birth experience and NICU fears and the general fears of his first 2 years of life. But then we had an ENT assessment and they asked all kinds of questions about ...
