Re : +1 protein, swelling in ankles- sent me home?

<t>The urine what makes me say go to L&D. Towards the end, I was drinking a TON of water and had very low urine output and what I did have was a caramel color. Very dark urine can be one of the signs that things are not working the way they need to. Did the nurse see how dark the urine was? If s...

Re : Numb hands***Update***

<t>I had the numbness in my hands too. When I started looking into it I found that along with the swelling in the hand, there can be some swelling in the wrists causing carpel tunnel. Early in my pregnancy (when everything was still relatively normal) my hands would go numb at night, but towards the...

Re : to call or not to call that is the question.

A call is always a great way to go. You get the information you need without having to go in to the hospital or dr's office. Just getting clarification about how long "consistently" is will be well worth the call.

Re : Can BP Meds Mask The Progression Of PE - Updated

<t>Check and see if your OB can help out at all. If they can't or you can't get in touch with them, just go to the other hospital. I agree that with a higher level NICU they will have more experience with high blood pressure and all of your related symptoms. It is so hard to know how all the symptom...

Re : HELLP Questions

<t>I would sweat and then get chills, then start sweating again. They told me that the sweating was part of my body getting rid of all the extra water from the swelling. I do know that in a "normal" pregnancy many women have "temperature" issues as their hormones readjust. I am wondering if this is ...

Re : Am I the only one that...

<t>Every time I see a pregnant woman, I think about how unfair it is that they have a chance at a "normal" delivery and I hate how good they look compared to me. I don't even know them and I am mad at them for getting the experience that I was cheated out of. Yes, I know how you feel. We have not de...

Wow, so glad you are in good hands now. I am sure it makes you feel much more comfortable knowing that they realize your condition needs monitoring and serious OBs. Let us know how you are doing when you are able.
