Re : Plagiocephaly Diagnsois :(

<t>I know that feeling! But, it's also good to know...rather relieving...that many full term infants need to wear the DOC band, too. It's all about them sleeping on their backs when they can't roll over. I know that's the right thing to do to prevent SIDS, but it also causes flat heads in some babie...

Re : Plagiocephaly Diagnsois :(

<t>Adam and Noah both wear the DOC band, and it really works fast!!! In fact, Noah's will be off before Halloween, and they've had theirs since August. Adam's will probably be off by Thanksgiving. gotta tell ya...they're great! The OT's are wonderful where you're going, as we have an office out here...

Re : depo provera and weight loss

<t>Kara- I had to stop breastfeeding because I was only getting 1oz. during each pumping session. <br/> <br/> I'd love to get back to running!!!! I'll be doing that soon. Been walking some. I'm having a difficult time really dieting over here. When I'm hungry, I eat healthy food, but I am eating. Go...

depo provera and weight loss

<t>I'm finally off of the depo. Ugh! Anyway, have only been on it for 6 mos. <br/> <br/> I didn't gain any weight. Just maintained, but I still need to lose weight to get back to my pre-preggo state.<br/> <br/> Anyone have any tricks that work for weight loss after depo provera?<br/> <br/> Thanks!</t>

Re : I think I need a new PCP

<t>Thanks, everyone! I didn't realize that my bp pre-pg wasn't going to be related to my bp postpartum. With that in mind, I'm still trying to lose weight anyway, as I want to get back to running 10k's. (5k's first, of course!) <br/> <br/> I also agree with everyone here about finding a doc who know...

I think I need a new PCP

<t>My PCP seems to believe that if I lose the baby weight, my bp will come down to normal. She already KNOWS I was diagnosed with CHT this past pregnancy, and have been on labetalol every since then.<br/> <br/> Also, she knows that when I was in peak condition (112 lbs) and running the marathon in 2...

Re : My little preemie is not so little anymore!

<t>Both Adam and Noah had flat spots on their heads, and are now wearing cranial bands to correct it. They're great! <br/> <br/> If your doc recommends a cranial band, your baby probably won't have to wear it for longer than a few months, because she's under a year old.<br/> <br/> Adam has a flat he...
