Re : visual symptoms / headache while bp is controlled

<t>mmm... a couple of times I saw a dozen multicolored sparkles floating. That lasted 5-10 minutes each time. Tons of floaters all the time. And a couple of times I saw gray circles the size of silver dollars that I couldn't see through. They lasted until I slept and then weren't there when I woke.<...

Re : Visual disturbances question

<t>I don't know and can't help you, but I can relate. <br/> <br/> With my last pregnancy I first started to get visual issues when my bp began to climb. I would see stars and multicolored light confetti when my bp got to about 160/100. That was also when the gray fog and surrealism would set in. But...

Re : Babies at 36 and 37 weeks?

<t>My 37 weeker was 8 lbs and was perfect. BUT!!! Because I was on Mag for so long prior to and during labor, it got into her lungs and gave her breathing issues. They let me hold her for a few seconds and then wisked her away. They observed her for 4 hours to make sure the mag was getting out of he...

Re : How dangerous is it if you never have protein?

<t>I was labeled chronic with my last pregnancy ( had normal bp before and after the pregnancy, but bp were high in the first trimester) but I never got PE because I never went above 300.<br/> <br/> I did feel like crap. I was hospitalized a couple of times. I was on bed rest. I was induced at 37 we...

Re : Probably TMI, but at a loss...

<t>So no clotting disorders but...<br/> <br/> I was wondering which IUD you have? The Mirena is supposed to slow or stop your period over the course of the first year. My friend got it put in though and bled for 30 days straight and got it taken out. Never knew why, so I guess it treats people diffe...

Re : Might be avoiding induction after all!

Will keep an eye out for your posts, because it sounds like you are def getting closer. I am happy for you and hope you go into labor soon! And my induction went great when I was a 2 stretched to 3 and just got pitocin, so hopefully yours will follow suit if it comes to that!

Re : My baby arrived early...

Congrats!

I don't know what the odds are and I am sorry your boy is having problems. But hopefully he won't be in the NICU for more than a week or two. It sounds like he is a really healthy size!

Re : bp

Oh my gosh! My bp was 114/65 when I went in for my weight loss consult today! I really am shocked when it is good. I shouldn't be, but I am. It is so nice to see low normal numbers!
