Re : Had toxemia... with stroke and seizures

Re : Strange update on me??? lol,

Good luck! I don't think it's horrible either. I am 33 weeks today and am getting anxious to meet my little guy. My ob said with CHT she wouldn't let me go past 37 weeks so maybe you will get to have a csection next week.

Also, my mom had preeclampsia in her pregnancy with me and I had sudden severe pre-e with my first pregnancy and delivered my daughter at 28 weeks. This time I am being watched very closely and am on baby aspirin...

Re : underwear for the preemie

I had the same problem. My daughter is turning four soon and is just fitting into the smallest (2T) underwear we can find. I had a friend who sews custom make some for us when Rachel was just starting potty training because we couldn't find any small enough.

Re : annoyed at an ultrasound tech...ugh

I'm so glad everything is okay. I have been told before that the u/s techs aren't allowed to tell you anything. The doctor has to. So it is possible that she wasn't able to tell you anything. The important thing is that the baby is okay.

Re : Just found out I have GD :-(

<t>I have GD this time. I am currently controlling it with diet. I only had to have insulin a few times last week when I was sent to the hospital and given the steroid shots. The steroid shots for the baby's lungs cause your blood sugars to go out of whack. Since I have been home I haven't had any p...
