I don't think so, but I wanted to be certain s...

Re : I'm Worried Again

<t>Hi Endrea,<br/> <br/> No one can predict for certain what is going to happen in your case but, I thought I'd let you know about my story.

Re : When does leaking stop?

OK - how sad is this - I started leaking/spraying just reading this! This is the only thing I don't like about BFing.

BTW the pressure thing doesn't really work for me either.

Re : Postpartum PE, hypertension & anxiety

<t>I don't have any advice for you but, I just wanted to let you know that you are not alone. My MFM has always had a very hard time trying to control my BPs.

Re : For those who have had a second pregnancy..
