Re : Help! I think I had HELLP!

<t>I'm not much help on the records but I know how you feel. I found out after looking at my medical records that I had HELLP not only with my second but third pregnancy too. It was quite a shock as no one ever said anything about it. I have no idea what my labs were, it was just dictated in the not...

Re : I can't take this again

<r>Thanks everyone. I'm feeling better about everything although I still don't think the Drs know which way is up. I talked to my Mom today. She is an RN and she had talked to my brother who is a Dr. and they both agree that my kidneys are probably failing. Of course, convincing the Dr's here that t...

Re : I can't do this again... update

<t>Thanks all<br/> I don't mean to complain, I mean it's really my fault for the way my DH acts. I should be a slug and just not do anything but because I get up and take care of things, he thinks everything is fine so he doesn't help out even more. I have lots of family here, unfortunately, they ar...

Re : Saw my new endocrinologist yesterday

<t>Ace inhibitors are a no-no while nursing. I have type 1 diabetes and am normally on an ace inhibitor to help heal/protect my kidneys. My Dr. let me go without them while nursing since I really felt the benefits of nursing were important enough to put off for 6 months. I have had diabetes for so l...

Re : Sleeping positions - sciatica on left side

<t>I was told I could lay in any position I found comforable as long as it wasn't flat on my back. I've also been having problems with sciatica on my left side. While in the hospital, they told me to just lay on my right side and use lots of pillows. BP seemed to stay the same on either side.<br/> <...

<t>I just wanted to jump in and say that my last baby was born at 31 weeks and was 3.7lbs<br/> <br/> As for the extended belly. My Mom is an NICU nurse and the whole time my kids were in the NICU she warned me about not letting the nurses push the feedings too fast, meaning how much they were eating...
