[ - ] Can you help. I am seven weeks pregnant and will be seeing the doctor at nine weeks. In the meantime I am dizzy and my heart is beating out of my chest. I can literally feel it pulsing in my neck. I don't have a way to take my blood pressure, but my pulse is 85. I don't know if I should just try to relax or call the doctor that I haven't seen yet. I am scared I am having a stroke or something. I have a headache. I drank a big glass of water, but nothing is helping. 12 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

you can give them a call and ask to see the Dr sooner. Pulse racing and dizziness is normal during pg. With the increase of blood volume in your body, the heart beats faster at times. Are you taking your prenatal vitamins? You can get them at the pharmacy OTC [ Reply | More ]

sure she should go to the ER if she feels that sick. I asked for a reason if she is still feeling very sick while resting for a reason. a pulse of 85 isn't bad. If her resting pulse was like 140 I would be very concerned [ Reply | More ]

sounds like a panic attack? do you have a history of anxiety? have you ever had a panic attack before? try breathing slowly, count to 3 as you breath in and then 3 as you breath out, in through the nose, out through the mouth. relax your muscles and try to concentrate on your breathing. and of course, you know your body best so if you are really worried do go to the ER.

[ - ] Nanny here, and very upset. I posted the other day, but it's still bothering me. I have been with my current employer only three months, but came to them from their friend who has known me for three years(and counting I still baby-sit for her). I KNOW they love me ( heard it from the neighbors, etc). I am friends with a mom in the neighborhood whose db I took care of last summer. We always have the kids together at the park for playdates, etc. Last week I asked my boss if I could take the baby to the other mom's house for a playdate, she said it was fine. We actually didn't go. Tuesday I took db there when it rained. I emailed the mom to let her know. When we got back and my boss called to check in, like she does everyday, she grilled me about the mom friend"is it a house or apt?how long have I known her? Is she married? Is her husband a nice guy? Is it a good block? " etc. Then tells me if she knew this woman better she wouldn'y be as 'apprehensive' about the baby going there. I took this as 'don't take baby there on another playdate'. I do understand her point, after all she doesn't really know the mom, but I do. I worked for the woman! She even met her at the baby's bday since she invited them. I am offended she doesn't trust my judgement. I would NEVER bring her baby some place that was unsafe. Am I overreacting? 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Are you understanding what I'm saying? The idea is to lessen the social and economic advantages of many families by offering significant financial aid from the earliest grade. Not all schools do this, and some schools that do have aid for preK or K limit it the amount to a percentage that still favors relatively well-to-do families. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] DOE is Leaning Towards CAPPING PS199, thus Destroying Our Families & Community At last night's CEC/DOE meeting, there was more discussion about CAPPING at PS199 to prevent zoned children from attending PS199. The DOE talked about Capping in Sept 2009 to ONLY 2 Kindergarten classes. There was NO discussion about relocating Center Shool. There was more discussion about moving other schools but leaving Center School in PS199 building. CEC/DOE don't plan to have any more public sessions How can the Center School THUGS and their thug kids wield so much power that they appear to be untouchable, while any other school would have been moved a long time ago. "How can the Center School wield so much influence that they appear to control the discussion and are the only ones able to inject new options for consideration that support their position, while PS199 and other schools are ignored." What's going on here ? 13 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Starting pay for my friends that went to Ivy was higher then friends with the same degree that went to a state school. I know there is a ranking of business school vs starting salary. The schools that rank the highest are not necessarily the ones that get the best salary's. But better schools do correlate FOR SOME JOBs to higher salary. [ Reply | More ]
