Re : Mentally replaying birth?

<t>gterrytx, I am so sorry about your therapist experience -- I can't imagine someone suggesting I was being sentimental about the birth. :( I got lucky on my first try finding someone, through a local moms website forum I heard about a counselor who specializes in postpartum/reproductive/mothering ...

Re : Mentally replaying birth?

<t>More hugs!! I didn't mean to suggest my own thoughts helped me at all, just that your wording really struck a chord with me. I am so sorry for what you are going through. I think there are other moms here in similar shoes, I hope they have better advice than me.<br/> Are you in TX too? There is a...

Re : Mentally replaying birth?

<t>Yes. I did, and occasionally still do to some extent. I know what you mean about a "do over" wish, I actually started planning my second pregnancy in the first few days after DS#1 was born, I was so upset/eager to get things "right" (different hospital where the good MFM could see me if I went in...

Re : PTSD after PE and Hellp syndrome?

<t>Mine didn't rise to the level of PTSD, but I definitely had anxiety, especially when DH and I started talking about TTC after DS#1. Seeing a counselor helped me too -- mine specializes in reproductive & mothering issues. In one of her books she recommends walks with baby to help new moms, I t...

Blocked ducts -- any chance b/c clotting disorder?

<t>I'm wondering if other BFing mamas with clotting disorders have had problems with blocked ducts too?<br/> <br/> I keep having problems (2x developed into mastisis), pretty much every time I go more than 2 1/2 - 3 1/2 hours between pumpings. The lactation consultant I saw today (I think the most e...

Re : does anyone else feel like this?

I went through a period where I thought about my hospital experience daily also -- it did get better, to the point I hardly ever remembered. It came back when we started planning to TTC again, but talking to a counselor really helped. So has being involved with the PF. :) Hugs!!

Re : 2 months old & visitors’ vaccines

<t>Wow, Caryn, I'm really sorry about passing out! That must be really scary. :( Thanks everyone for the input, I hear you on germ exposure generally & preschool. My biggest concern is definitely pertussis, and my concern about the flu was based on our pediatrician's recommendation to make sure ...

Re : 2 months old & visitors’ vaccines

<t>Thank you both! I really appreciate it. I think I probably haven't had as much sympathy as I should to the fear of needles issue after 8 months of lovenox... I will try harder to be sensitive to their concerns! On the health issues, as far as we know DS#2 is healthy, he was born 38 weeks, has a h...
