Re : Showering when you're by yourself with babies

<t>I applaud your creativity too andrea! I have always left the baby in her crib when showering, though I think about her the whole time and rush to get done.

Re : height and PE

I am 5'1, I did not develop PE in my first pregnancy, but suffered with post partum PE in my second. My mom was the same height as me, but did not have PE with either of her 2 pregnancies.

Re : Post Partum Preeclampsia Questions

<t>Well I can honestly say that although I love both of my daughters, I won't be having anymore children. After a really easy pregnancy the first time (20 years ago by the way), the second pregnancy spun me for a loop. I had a bout with endometriosis several years ago and was told that I could not h...

Re : Post Partum Preeclampsia Questions

<t>Sorry.... don't mean to sound dumb but what is an MFM? after reading some of the stories on here,I see how horrible this COULD have been. I thank my lucky stars that I made out as well as I did.
