Re: Estradiol pills vs patches for FET - curious

So, for my 2nd FET my doctor wanted to "change things up a bit" and suggested I do estrogen injections (estradiol valerate.) He said he has no data to prove that one ...

Re: Bedtime and napping

The hardest part is that all babies are different. I've been blessed by two VERY different babies. My 3.5 year old was on a very predictable schedule by 4 months. He took a 1.5 hour morning nap, a 3 hour afternoon nap, and a 30 minute snooze around 6pm. Bedtime was 8pm and he'd sleep until 6 am (som...

Baylor - Are you having your c-section today? Good luck!!! Hope all goes well! Daisy -- Good luck tomorrow! Hope your c-section goes well too! As for how to avoid thrush... I'm not sure. Try to eat lots of yogurt that has the live culture / probiotics. That is supposed to help. But, if you take anti...

Hi all - No babies yet from anyone? My c-section is booked for Feb 4th (a Thursday) so I have less than a week to go. That is assuming that the amnio to check for lung maturity comes back ok. Thought the date might get bumped up a little because my platelet count is hovering at the "concern" level. ...

Hi everyone - I can't believe how close it is for the babies to start being born! Are you all ready? How is everyone doing? After my protein and platelet #s got really bad a couple of weeks ago, I've been on modified bed rest. Doctor said just to take it really easy and lay down during the day as mu...

With both of my pregnancies, I've had an anterior placenta. Both times I have felt the baby moving around week 14. I think every woman is different but the anterior placenta definately provides an extra layer. I have never been able to distiguish body parts, like feet or hands, but many woman can. O...

I was on the pill form of it from weeks 29-36 with my first. I used it as minimally as possible... just when the contractions got to be more than 8 per hour. It took a week or so but I adjusted to it and the side effects went away. I was taking it at least a couple times a day. Make sure that you as...

KuteKellie - YOU NEED TO GO TO A NEW DOCTOR!!! NOW!!! Your blood pressure is too high. Nausea and vomitting are NOT normal signs of pregnancy in the 3rd trimester. I'm beginning to think you have HELLP syndrome too which is even more serious than just preeclampsia. What are the symptoms of HELLP syn...
