Re : Low Amniotic Fluid

<r>Man, where are all the oligohydramnios girls? I am, my oligo baby will be seven in April. <br/> <br/> Here's the deal with low fluid: sometimes when the placenta isn't working optimally, the babe can get less blood flow than he or she needs to grow.

Re : trouble breathing

<t>ohhhh heaven, ma'am- trouble breathing is definitely something you don't want to ignore.<br/> <br/> Pulmonary edema (to the best of my admittedly non-scientifc recollection) is one of the main reasons pregnant moms end up in the ICU. I end up getting fluid in my lungs after pregnancy- after your ...

Re : Is this good?

<t>Sush, that's a hard one! there's such a combination of factors that come to play. It does sound like you're heading towards chronic htn, but what often happens in pregnancy is that the increased blood volume will cause your BP to decrease below your baseline during the second trimester. Please do...

Re : Maternity Clothes

If you're having a hard time deciding if you want to keep them- I know that I kept mine between pregnancies, and by the time I got pregnant again, they had super cute newer stuff that I wanted to get. I'm thinking of you!

Re : Low pulse pressure?

<t>Yeaaa, I don't know how much I would read into that right now as the very state of pregnancy really mucks out your hemodynamics because of the increased blood volume of pregnancy, particularly during the second trimester.<br/> <br/> I also wonder if it is at all related to your increased pulse ra...
