Re: When to deliver w/ history of classical c-section

I get the sense this is not typical, but I was scheduled for a repeat c/s at 39 weeks with my second despite having a classic c/s with my first. At the first signs of labor at 38 weeks (on the nose), they delivered. I had no complications but they did give medications to stop/slow the labor while we...

Re: When did you stop Lovenox?

I was switched to Heparin for several weeks before delivered (I forget exactly when, but I want to say it was about 34 weeks). I did deliver before my scheduled c/s (almost a week) and had no problems - they switched me soon enough to consider the possibility too. I had taken an injection around 8:3...

Re: Been a while...am I a terrible mom???

All the stuff Trish said! Wanting to take care of yourself is actually part of taking care of Ethan. Try to think of it this way. In an airplane crash, they tell the parents to put on their own oxygen masks before putting them on the kids. It goes against instinct, but we need to take care of oursel...

Re: No morning sickness. Is that bad?

I wouldn't let it stress you. I didn't have "real" morning sickness with either of my pregnancies. I just had a general blah feeling for a few weeks each time, but nothing I'd even call "nausea". I know it's hard not to worry about everything, but no morning sickness can be normal (and then I believ...

Congratulations! Sorry to hear he had to go to the NICU - hopefully not for long.

Re: 17P?

I'm a little embarrassed to say that I'm not exactly sure what I have...I know have some some version of MTHFR but I've forgotten which one. I will say that there was debate among the MFMs in the practice over whether or not to do the Lovenox and ultimately it was the head of the practice that made ...

Re: 17P?

I had 17P for pre-term labor prevention in my 2nd pregnancy. I don't know what, if any, my PE history had to do with my MFM's recommendation to do it. I started at 16 weeks and went until 36 weeks (I think). I didn't have any problems and delivered at 38 weeks with no issues with it - my insurance c...

Re: Game Over

According to your signature, you went a couple of rounds of overtime - way to go on blowing away your 32 week goal! Good luck on Thursday. Hope everything goes smoothly and that little guy comes out screaming and breathing easy. Will be thinking of you and your family (and watching for updates) for ...

Re: Contractions when to worry?

I had tons of contractions with both of my pregnancies and with both, here is what I was told: If I had more than 4 in an hour, to drink a lot of water and lie down and rest. If they continued, to call/go in (exception to waiting: if they were following a definite pattern within that hour - like exa...

Re: NST ?

Hopefully someone with a "real" answer will come by. I don't know that it stands for or what the number itself means, but the change in number indicates contractions - it should go along with the graph - there should be 2 lines. One shows the heart rate and another shows the contractions. Contractio...
