Re: At what point did you receive Magnesium?

As soon as I was admitted to the hospital. I stayed on it for 24 hours after my son was delivered. My BP never went up, so I can't help you with any BP point when Magnesium is given, but since I was admitted for an emergency c-section with HELLP, they just started it right away. The only think I rem...

Re: Stopping at one child because of HELLP?

Laura, you are an inspiration to all of us. I can't believe that you are 30 weeks already - and it is great you are PE free! You have so much strength. Where does it come from?

Re: Stopping at one child because of HELLP?

Our son is just over a year and a half and we have no idea what we are doing in the way of future children. I can't imagine being pregnant again and I really can't take the pain again. I go back and forth about if I even want another child at all (HELLP aside) , but I think it is because all of my e...

Re: Recently survived HELLP, baby in NICU

Welcome! This forum has been a godsend for me. While I was lucky enough to bring my baby home when I left the hospital, I can certainly understand some of the feelings that go along with feeling like your body has failed you. I have also found this forum amazing in helping with the flashbacks I have...

Re: Weird symptoms...

Rush & Jenmatt1 - It is so good to know that you are both on top of your symptoms and keeping the docs well informed. I feel frustrated that I can't "fix" how you are feeling. Just know that the PE Forum ladies are thinking about you wishing you the best. I understand how frustrating it is with no B...

Re: Weird symptoms...

Glad to hear you will be in tomorrow! My pain happened a few times in the days before I got sick and it felt weird. It is so hard to explain because I have never felt anything quite the same. I thought that is may be heartburn (I have never had heartburn to know what it feels like) or a strange vers...

Re: Weird syptoms...

Please call your doctor ASAP and check on that blood work. I have many of those same symptoms - right rib pain, pain in the right shoulder and a general feeling that something was wrong. I was in for blood work on a THursday and the symptoms were bad that night. I went in the next day and was told I...

Re: So many unanswered questions

Swelling was my only PE type symptom as I had not high BP or protein in urine. The swelling was very severe and I developed epigastric pain which is how they found my HELLP syndrome (class I). My BP never went up until AFTER I had my son. So many of us have had situations that just don't seem to mak...

Re : Scientists find cause of preeclampsia

<t>Thanks so much for all the info ladies. I am actually teaching redox reactions this week and have just finished enzymes with my AP Biology class. They all know about my experience with HELLP and I am using this study as a way to show them the 'real world' applications of what we are learning righ...
