Re: Med question for pregnant chronics

I thought I replied to this a couple of days ago, but I guess it didn't post...sorry! Anyway, I had to adjust my meds twice last pregnancy--once around 11 weeks and then around 20-26 weeks. Ironically I had to lower my dosage because I was fainting. After delivery I had to increase my meds. With thi...

Re: Disabilty

When I had preeclampsia I was working full time and had disability through work, so I don't have much to over about the actual disability insurance. However, when I got pregnant with baby #2, I quit my job and had to get private life insurance. Since I was pregnant my cholesterol and something else ...

Re: For those of you who were induced at 37 weeks

Oh, my OB was on the news a while back discussing the 39 week initiative and a lot of the concerns about elective deliveries prior to 39 weeks. If anyone wants to see the video, PM me and I'll send you the link to his practice's website. (I would post it here, but I don't think we are supposed to me...

Re: For those of you who were induced at 37 weeks

My understanding is that in a *normal* pregnancy, if you go in to labor at 37 weeks, most doctors will NOT try to stop labor. I thought I've read that they normally don't try to stop labor after 34 weeks. But maybe that's outdated or I'm mis-remembering. Angie, you might be right about that. I'm no...

Re: Amnio date and c section ?

I had severe itching after the delivery of my daughter, but I thought it was a side effect of the mag. Now that you guys bring it up, I guess it's more likely it was from morphine or some other pain med. (This brings to mind that verse from an Alanis Morissette song about the morphine making me itch...

Re: For those of you who were induced at 37 weeks

Thats actually a great question. I wonder that myself. If 37 weeks is fullterm...why the amnio? My understanding is that in a *normal* pregnancy, if you go in to labor at 37 weeks, most doctors will NOT try to stop labor. However, there is a big push, at least where I live, called the 39 week initi...

Re: NST question

Well, it has been 8 months now since I had a NST/BPPs, but I seem to recall that it is *normal* for the heart rate to slow down as the pregnancy progresses. Hopefully, Caryn or someone else can confirm or correct me if I'm wrong, but I think newborns have much slower heart rates than a fetus, so a d...

Re: Amnio date and c section ?

Laura, I wasn't a candidate for VBAC, but based on what I've heard/read there is a higher rate of c-sections associated with induction. My guess is that is why your OB said 50% chance. FWIW, the physical recovery from my c-sections were not bad at all. Do you have adverse effects with Motrin? That i...
