Re : Can BP Meds Mask The Progression Of PE - Updated

As annoying as it can be to have to pack up and go, sometimes if you go to L&D, they'll be less likely to dismiss you so quickly like they can do on the phone. I'm sure you would feel more comfortable if someone looked at you and ran some quick blood tests.

Re : New here with questions****UPDATED AT BOTTOM****

Best of luck to you tomorrow evening! I'm impressed that you can even type while on mag ... my eyes wouldn't focus on anything enough to allow me to read. Hope your time on it is short and that you feel better after delivery.

Re : Hospital bag

<t>My son was 4 when his baby brother came along, but I also included a "gift" for the baby to give Jacob when he first came to visit me ... and my husband had also taken Jacob shopping to buy the new baby something. This was really important for us b/c Jacob wanted nothing to do with baby brother, ...

Re : Lovenox :(

<t>As Cindy said, I hope you find the areas that hurt less, but it does take trial and error to get there :( For some reason, my left side never hurts for injections (but still bruises), while my right side usually stings when I do the shot. I definitely second the ice suggestion. They did that for ...

Re : Anyone due in October???

<t>My official due date is October 26, but I'm scheduled for a c-section around 37 weeks. I, too, am having a girl and I keep telling her (very nicely, of course) to please stay put until her dad steps foot back onto American soil :) I'd like to at least share her birth with him since he's been depl...

Re : Is spotting normal is 2nd trimester?

<t>Thanks for the advice! I did end up going in after speaking with the nurse. It had stopped by the time she called me back so she advised me to take it easy for the rest of the night and go to L&D Saturday morning to get checked out. Unfortunately, I did that, but they didn't do much for me si...

Is spotting normal is 2nd trimester?

<t>I'm sorry that this is off-topic to PE, but I don't know where else to turn to. I'm trying not to freak myself out and I've already called the OB nurse on-call to ask (but waiting to hear back since I had to leave a message) ... but, is it normal to have spotting episodes in the second trimester?...

Re : ? about preemie

<t>I don't have anything to add that the other ladies haven't covered, but I did want to mention something about health insurance. If you are paying your full premium yourself, you may not have to worry about it not covering you if you aren't working (is that what you meant?). For me (I work for the...

Re : Whats next?

<t>Welcome! I learned very early on in my son's NICU days that every step forward was a reason for celebration and it sounds like your daughter is doing well respiratory wise, already off CPAP! What the nurse told you about bradycardia episodes is correct. Docs/nurses will often call them A's and B'...
