Re: Back to Work

I really didn't want to go back to work either- not because I felt like a failure, but because my work involves other people's children (though I'm not a teacher) and I wondered if I could really go back to that after losing my own. But I couldn't afford to quit so I did go back to work. I won't lie...

Re: no underlying conditions (?!!)

I can't answer all your questions, but I also had my antiphospholipid antibodies checked afterward and was negative. What I was told is that PE can happen even when there is no underlying condition. I don't know that there are any other tests that "should" be done, but I asked my doc to check my Vit...

Re: Recent loss and I just need some advice, encouragement

I'm so sorry that Angel had to be delivered too early for him to survive. Preeclampsia took my little one away from me too and it's the worst pain imagninable. I imagine you need some time to grieve, but when the time comes to think about trying to conceive again, M gives you good advice about consu...

Re: My Friend had a Baby yesterday......

I couldn't hold or be around other people's babies for the first year after I lost Millie. Now I can, although some people's babies I have a harder time with than others. Sure you don't want to hurt anyone's feelings but you do have to protect yourself to a certain extent. My cousin was pregnant at ...

Re: 50 years old

Whether to continue a pregnancy is such a personal decision. If you are pregnant of course you're going to worry about getting preeclampsia again- a visit to a perinatalogist/maternal fetal medicine specialist (the high risk pregnancy docs) might help give you a better idea of what your chances of d...

Re: Consumed by greif

I hate it when people talk about "moving on". The death of my only baby is not something I'll ever "move on" from. I am fundamentally different from that experience and the loss of her will always be a part of me. Some friends get that and some don't. I am probably a little less close now to the one...

Re: Gabe's Story: HELLP at 23w2d

Gabe's mom, I'm so, so sorry that Gabe had to be born so early. I lost my little one due to preeclampsia. I agree with you that it's the most devastating thing for a mom to go through. I had to go through a lot of what you did- a whirlwind hospital admission (1minute telling me I could still make it...

Re: New Born Preemie

Julia Faith- such a lovely name for a wee precious one. My heart is breaking that she had to arrive so early and that once again your pregnancy was cut short and your birth process was traumatic. Oh the mix of emotions you must be having- it's bringing back anxious memories for me. I am hoping and p...
