Hey Sara,

Trying again after preeclampsia, and especially after two preeclampsia experiences, has got to be the hardest decision any woman has to make! It's such a personal choice, but it can be really comforting to hear from others that they have made it out the other side. Generally, preeclampsia gets less severe in future pregnancies, but it seems like you are one of those cases where it did the opposite. Did you see a maternal-fetal medicine specialist in your second pregnancy? You are right that the good thing is that there's so much more awareness as well as just more vigilance over preeclampsia survivors' care.

Keep in touch as you think about this decision!

Want another baby and scared.

Postby sacsarah2097 » Mon May 11, 2015 03:32 pm

Hello,

I have had two previous pregnancies with complications due to pre-eclampsia. My oldest (now 12) was born at 31 weeks and weighed 2lbs. 6oz. My youngest (now 6) was born at 29 weeks and weighed 2lbs. 8oz. It's hard to believe how far things have come since my first pregnancy. So much new information and technology. I really want to have another baby but am also really scared. I don't want to go through that again as the last one was very dangerous. I feel selfish wanting another child know that I have two to take care of and can't have anything bad happen.

Please any others out there I could use some advise and your experiences if you have had a third or more.
