Re : Labs are in: MTHFR gene mutation

<t>I have MTHFR, which was discovered in my first pregnancy. In my first pregnancy I started bleeding, it was discovered that I had MTHFR and I had blood clots between my uterus and placenta.

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

<t>I know that my doctor would not put me on bp meds in my pregnancies (he did in the beginning with the second pregnancy but I went off them a couple weeks later). He believes that bp meds will mask PE and he will be unable to catch it when it starts to get worse. Only after I delivered did he star...

Re : 3rd baby?

<t>I was in the same boat as you (even though in my second pregnancy I didnt officially get PE). My husband wanted to get vasectomy as soon as I recovered from my c-section. I wasnt so sure, and this is finally what I told him, I don't know if I want another baby but I am not ready to say that I don...

Re : IUD Users? TMI

Re : Baby #2 Outcomes: Are you part of the statistic?

<t>I am so sorry about your son, he was born on my birthday....<br/> <br/> Chance of recurrence is different for everyone's unique situation. All I know is that I was told that it could happen and it could not happen. But at 28 weeks in my second pregnancy when my BP shot up everyone assumed (me inc...

I think at about three weeks old I started introducing formula because I was sick of pumping, I felt like I wasn't able to enjoy him, ...
