Can someone help explain this IUGR thing to me?

<t>Okay -<br/> So in a rash of losing my mind I asked my mother to go with me to the Peri last week while she and my father were in town.

Re : Awful Peri Appointment

<t>Kate -<br/> Well, that just stinks, doesn't it? [V]<br/> I just wanted to write back and let you know that except for the HELLP part I am in the same boat as you except that I didn't get all the negative commentary.

Re : Just curious.....

<t>Hi -<br/> Unfortunately this is something that I can answer!<br/> <br/> As far as being on psych meds during pregnancy there are some drugs known to be safer than others for use during pregnancy (e.g. Zoloft is safer than Paxil for example).

Update and Questions

<t>All -<br/> First thanks so much for the warm welcome a couple of weeks back. I never have found anyone with preexisting kidney disease that I could talk with but, I monitor the forums daily for information.

Re : BP high & protein at 6 weeks

<t>Hi!<br/> <br/> I was in the same place that you are but I did know going in that I was chronically hypertensive due to some underlying issues. To date, my peri has done all of the things that Fiona indicates above as being the baselines but a couple of notes of caution:<br/> <br/> 1) My experienc...
