I am so glad Adam is off the vent & fiesty!!
The only question I have personal experience with is the underlying condition testing -- my MFM recommended testing for clotting disorders, which found a protein C deficiency, and my OB told me that I will probably want to continue taking baby aspirin after the pregnancy, for life. I still need to confirm that with an internist or specialist, though.
Keeping you & Adam in my thoughts & prayers!

hello again to all:) hope everyone and all the babies are doing well!!Adam is still doing good! Just waiting and praying that the right tube will be out SOON!! He is just making progress and I am so happy and so very thankful ! I have not held him yet :( nor have I fed him yet :( but I am being patience. I can not believe he is 23 days old.

I went to the cardiologist TODAY who was FLOORED that no one is really keeping an eye on me. My doc- who delivered my 2nd and 3rd hasnt even called to see if we are ok, or how baby Adam is?? I was seen by a "resident " doc when i had my staples out (not the ones who delivered me), so naturally I was tearful and upset when i expressed my concern with my BP and preeclamptic issues before the delivery.. I was told the classic "ONCE THE BABY IS DELIVERED THE PROBLEM IS RESOLVED!!I had asked for some one to give me some scripts to check on my blood work and 24 hour urine. My BP when I was there for the appt was 140/100. They were like : oh, we will take it before you leave. I had a "student" who was standing by !!! UGGHHH...

The cardiologist, today when I asked and told him NO ONE is following me POST PARTUM..I wanted a work up for a 24 hour urine, and of course some post partum hypertension blood work up...

He gave me a script for my pressure.. He gave me 100mg of Labetolol (spelling?) and wants me to monitor my BP weekly and fax my weekly results over the next 4 weeks and come back in 4 weeks..I was wondering if anyone is on anything that is safe for BREASTMILK. I am currently pumping, of course since Adam can not have my milk yet due to chylothorax. They are waiting until the fluid stops and the tube comes out..and he is off the meds that are assisting in stopping it..

So I wondered for the breastfeeding moms who knows what is safe to take, and certainly I am scared with some medications _ THEY DRY YOUR MILK UP:(

he told me to check with my OBGYN to be sure, but I knew this place would have ladies galore with the best answers instead of waiting to talk to an OBGYN!!!

I hope all is well and am still praying for all of you :)
Babies to stay safe and moms for safe deliveries..can not wait for the posts!!
((((((((((((HUGS))))))))))))) to all :)







"ALL MY SWEET FRIENDS... ADAM IS OFF THE VENT!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOW I AM SO IMPRESSED!!! HE IS DOING FINE, SO FAR!! I PRAY HE WONT NEED IT BACK IN, BUT SO FAR WE ARE THRILLED!! HE IS JUST SO INCREDIBLE, SO FIESTY!! I SUPPOSE HE WANTS TO IMPRESS US ALL!! FOR HIS FEEDINGS WHICH JUST STARTED HE WENT FROM 3 CC, THEN LESS THAN 24 HOURS TO 5, AND TODAY HE STARTED 10!! I AM SURE HE WILL BE PLUMP IN NO TIME. HE IS ONLY 4 .8 #, SO TINY TO ME. STILL WAITING FOR THE RIGHT CHEST TUBE TO COME OUT!! STILL HAS FLUID DRAINING :(

I AM SO THANKFUL FOR ALL THE PRAYERS AND THOUGHTS!! I AM SENDING THEM TO ALL OF YOU, TOO!! AND JAMIE.. GREAT NEWS!!SAW YOUR UPDATE.. SPROUT WILL ARRIVE SAFELY I JUST KNOW IT!!

ANYONE HAVE ANY TIPS AND ADVICE FOR ME TO ASK ON MONDAY -I AM SEEING THE CARDIOLOGIST.. I AM SURE HE WILL PUT ME ON SOMETHING FOR THE REALLY HIGH READINGS. IF I GET ANYTHING SCARY BEFORE MONDAY I WILL GO TO THE ER HERE.. BUT I AM GOING TO ASK HIM FOR A COMPLETE WORK UP SCRIPT TO CHECK EVERYTHING OUT...I KNOW HE WILL.

IS IT SILLY TO ASK HIM TO GIVE ME A SCRIPT FOR COMPLETE WORK UP? I ALSO WANT TO CHECK MY 24 HOUR URINE AGAIN. I AM MORE THAN SURE WHEN I TELL HIM ABOUT MY ORDEAL HE WILL GLADLY WRITE UP SOMETHINGS FOR FOLLOW UP. OBVIOUSLY I AM NOT GOING BACK TO MY DOC... I FEEL THE BALL WAS DROPPED.. WHEN I WAS AT MY NST AND GOT THE BAD NEWS OF THE BABYS ABNORM /ENLARGED HEART CHAMBERS AND I HAD TOO MUCH AMNIO FLUID..THEN WAS SENT HOME!! 48 HOURS LATER MY BABY HAD ALMOST 3 # OF FLUID BUILT UP!! ..AND HE HAS NOT EVEN CALLED ME TO SEE IF I AND ADAM ARE OK, THIS DOCTOR I THOUGHT CARED ABOUT ME. HE DELIVERED RYAN AND SARA :(

ANYWAY, ARE THERE OTHER THINGS I SHOULD HAVE TESTED FOR MYSELF? I AM 38 1/2 AND I JUST WORRY NOW WITH PRE-E, WHAT TYPE OF THINGS /SHOULD I HAVE TESTED NOW? I WILL NOT HAVE ANY MORE BABIES!! BUT,I AM JUST BEING PROACTIVE. I AM JUST WORRYING ABOUT THE OTHER POSSIBLE THINGS THAT PRE E UNMASKS!

ANY TIPS WILL BE APPRECIATED!! I WILL KEEP PRAYERS GOING FOR ALL YOU GIRLS AND ALL THE BEAUTIFUL BABIES TO SAFELY ARRIVE!

THANKS AGAIN, AND WANT EVERYONE TO KNOW HOW MUCH YOUR COMPASSION AND CONCERN MEAN! I AM WAITING FOR GREAT UPDATES ON ALL OF YOU, TOO!!
