"If you eat eggs and cheese, one of my favorite breakfasts is Egg Beaters with grated cheese on top (minimizes the quantity) and salsa. In any case, I'd add something with protein to your meal. Sounds weird, but why not add cubes of tofu to your…"

"Yes - I'm sure I'll feel like I'm leaving at the doctor's office, but I guess it's a good thing that they are checking us so closely."

Kristin replied to LaMejo's discussion 'Intense monitoring' in the group Oh! BABY!!!
"Yep, this sounds about right to me! It was intense, but near the end, there is not much else you can think about and it was often reassuring to know that the little one is being monitored. (Though I DID get sick of going ALL the time!!)"

Heather replied to LaMejo's discussion 'Intense monitoring' in the group Oh! BABY!!!
"It's routine. I've been a type one for 39 years and had my first child at 24. The only difference is that I didn't see a maternal fetal person 16 years ago. I did still have non stress tests and extra ultrasounds only in the regular…"

Intense monitoring

"I had the same problem 2 weeks ago, and it was while I was overseas. The strips also stopped working in it, and I had no back up meter (I know, bad - luckily I had the Dexcom on). I packed on batteries (changing them 1-2 a day), and was ready to…"
