Re : Thinking of untying my tubes

<t>To that end...these decisions (and the discussions that help us make them) are best supported by your doctor/peri and those that know you best (e.g probably not any of us!!) <br/> <br/> I agree with Laura--I hate baby fever. I'm turning 47 next month and I STILL get baby fever and my baby is turn...

Re : How To Champion Your Wife's High Risk Pregnancy?

<t>Hi Chad,<br/> <br/> I just want to add something that you may find helpful. I went through almost the exact same scenario during the birth of my third son--the major difference was he was nearly at term so we didn't have that tough challenge. But the story you describe about your wife could have ...

Re : Celebrities and PE/HELLP

I actually know the owners of Birthday Express pretty well. Jan had a severe case with one child and then had a milder case with the subsequent (#3 and 4, I think). Nice people.

Re : Just being a proud Mama!

<t>Thanks very much--we think he's pretty talented. My grandmother was a professional pianist and my mom was all about music all the time, but worked as a teacher. It's ironic as I told myself I was not going to force my kids music the way it had been done to me so I just left them be and so far--th...

Just being a proud Mama!

<r>My eldest son Jonathan (with whom I was on bedrest for six weeks due to preeclampsia) is finishing his first album. I wanted to share. This has nothing to do with preeclampsia and since it's not for sale--it's not a request you buy it--just a Mama Bear saying--hey hey hey! :) We're very proud!<br...

Re : Dara update 1/13

<t>Hi Dara--I've heard an expert (in the UK that Caryn likes a great deal and so do I...and so does everybody but I digress) say that preeclampsia is more of a syndrome--instead of being a destination it appears as one of many configurations--like a constellation in the sky, all related but independ...

Re : Teens with PE ?

<t>Hi--I just wanted to join everyone in saying how sorry I am about your daughter's complicated pregnancy and the loss of your grandchild. I wish you luck finding the answers you need. How is your daughter holding up after such a traumatic childbirth and loss? She might find some friends here who s...

Re : SSRI Use and Risk of GH

<t>I do remember (anecdotal and old anecdotal information at that) my Peri telling my then (note "Ex") husband who was complaining that my 'anxiety was getting the best of me and could we deliver the baby NOW please'...that my elevated BP and high cardiac output were sending "fight or flight" messag...

Re : possible c/s tomorrow

<t>Dara,<br/> <br/> We're all keeping you and those babies in the top of our thoughts. I can't speak to their chances if you have to deliver but from my experience here I know the outcomes are really all over the map. We can only hope you are able to eek out a little more time and if not--that the b...
