Re : Two protein levels?

I was looking at my blood work results from my previous (PE) pregnancy and couldn't find anything there that would have normal levels up to 15. Did the nurse said what the other number was?

Call you doctor when you can and let us know what s/he says!

Re : Steroids and platelets? UPDATE

Keep us posted. I really hope things will take a good turn, no matter if it's HELLP or something else. They will continue to monitor your platelet count, right?

Best of luck!

Re : 33 1/2 week update

I'm sorry I'm new and don't know your history with this pregnancy, but do you have protein in your urine?

It's great the baby is already that big!

Re : Question about protien levels

I think it's a good idea to try pain killers. If they help, then it's supposedly not a PE headache, but if they don't, then you have something to tell your doctor (and husband).

Re : VERY tired question

<t>((((Amy))))<br/> <br/> I just asked you in my thread how your pregnancy is going, and now I know. :(<br/> <br/> It sounds a bit like what I'm going through, although I'm not really sleepy tired, more exhausted and beaten. I'm also not sure if this much is normal, and I definitely wasn't this fati...

Re : Concerns - paranoia or intuition?

Thanks, Amy. I've felt better today, but it probably can't be the iron supplements just yet - just a good day. :)

Re : Nice to meet you all!

No hei Riina!

It's nice to see another Finn here. I also lived in England for a year, in 2001-2002. :)

I would like to hear your story, so please re-post it when you find a moment. Kiitos!

Re : PE and the child's temperament
