Re : Question for all of you HGers

<t>I'm in the same boat. <br/> <br/> I (luckily) didn't have HG, but I did have hypermesis, PIH, pree, HELLP, oligio, and an emergency c-section at 28 weeks (vertical incision). So, I'm really not a good candidate for pregnancy. Especially since my bp still isn't under control (2 years post) and I h...

Re : Need info for Premmie on Vent

<t>I am so happy to hear that Parker is doing well! I'm sorry your wife has to go back to work now... I can't imagine. (I was lucky enough to have sick time for the whole NICU stay... just had to go back right after he came home.)<br/> <br/> Good luck to all of you!<br/> Sharel<br/> <br/> ----------...

Re : Ethan is coming home!!!!

<t>That is SO wonderful!!! Congrats to our little guy! :-)<br/> <br/> I remember all those appts... so overwhelming! (but necessary, of course!) I'll never forget telling the nurse Aaron's weight in grams (rather than pounds) and she looked at me like I had two heads. LOL<br/> <br/> ----------------...

Re : Teething and your preemie

<t>Sounds like she's doing great! Congrats on the new tooth.<br/> <br/> I'm no doc, but I wonder if the spitting up is related in some way to the increased saliva. All that chewing is wet business! LOL I always figure, ask the doc... that's what they are there for! <br/> <br/> Be sure to come back o...

Re : Relationships between Preemies and owning Cats

<t>We kept the cat away from Aaron completely for about 18 months. Now, that poor cat is Aaron's buddy. In fact, "kitty-itty-itty-dlitty-ditty" is something we hear CONSTANTLY now. lol<br/> <br/> I'm not a cat person, but I have to feel sorry for that one. But I have to give him credit, aaron is gen...

Re : "Older preemies"?

<t>Aren't they just wonderful?<br/> <br/> I still am amazed that Aaron is so "perfect". he is smart, funny, athletic... has wonderful balance, can communicate, does somersaults, is strong... I could go on and on. There is simply no fragility about him at all.<br/> <br/> Our preemies are just miracle...

Re : Relationships between Preemies and owning Cats

<t>We had two cats while I was pregnant, but I kept them away from me. And then we got rid of the long-haired one when we knew Aaron would be early.<br/> <br/> I don't think having them related to my needing to be delivered. But who knows?<br/> <br/> Sharel<br/> <br/> ------------------------<br/> S...

Re : "Older preemies"?

<t>Amanda,<br/> Sorry to hear that about your daughter. Good luck with all of this.<br/> <br/> My 28 weeker, who turned 2 on May 2, eats a good bit, but he's just now 26lbs.

Re : Need info for Premmie on Vent

<t>Hopefully they give you more warning than we got about when he will go home....<br/> <br/> We asked and asked and asked about it, and the answer was always "later", "in a few weeks" etc. <br/> <br/> Then on a Monday, the resident said he "probably has about 3 weeks to go". Okay, at least that was...
