Re : Mentally replaying birth?

<t>I can relate to that nagging "can't get past this" feeling. My family is very supportive, but they still don't understand why I can't just get over it. I don't think that others who have not had the experience can understand that it has nothing to do with your strength as a person. We are strong ...

Re : does anyone else feel like this?

<t>Does anyone else feel that they start to feel better and stronger, but then something will just hit you and you feel like you are back where you started? Yes, most days are good days now, and the bad days are much fewer. I don't think about my son's birth nearly as much as I did, but when I do it...

Re : Low urine output?

Re : Hellp and surrogacy.

Caryn, thanks for the explanation - that makes total sense. Delissa, thanks for asking the question. My husband and I have tossed that idea around a bit and I never thought of that. Great point.

Re : does anyone else feel like this?

<t>I thought that after a year I wouldn't be here so much, wrong. My son is 15 months and I find myself spending more time on the forum and researching more about HELLP. I just want to know why this happened to me and yet I know that there is a good chance I will never know why. I think at this poin...

Re : Protein Z and HELLP.

No, you don't need protein in the urine to have HELLP. It is based on your blood tests. Hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes and low platelets.
