I want you to know that I truly respect your decision. I know it wasn't easy and everyone is different and has to do what is right for them. I can say from the bottom of my heart that the only reason I am evern "considering" trying again is because we lost our only baby. If I was lucky enough to take a baby home after pre-e I wouls do just what you are,one and done. The idea of putting a baby through any part of the nicu expereince again just terrifies me more then anything

It is such a hard choice. I guess I was lucky with my c-section. I had NO bleeding and was only soar for about a week and then I felt fine. On the other side my preeclampsia was horrible and my daughter did not make it :-( Maybe over some more time you will change you mind again. (((HUGS)))

It is nearly a year since PE first knocked on my door at approx 32 weeks. I had a terrifying birth experience and anxious time in the NICU. The physical feeling after the c section, the night sweats, the bleeding-oh my, just so frightening. I was lucky to eventually take home my tiny daughter from the hospital and I don't think I let her out of my arms for those first few months. I am not traumatised anymore as my baby is thriving and brings me great joy. I am over it, the PE. I don't feel sorry for myself anymore and I don't get flashbacks, I am lucky I can put this behind me as I got to take home a baby.
I agonised for a long time whether I had the strength and courage to try for a sibling for my precious daughter. I did the back and forth that many women on this site do. I am now firm in my resolve that I am definitely, 'done with one.' I have seen lately that many women are having very sucessful second pregnancies and I am so delighted by these stories. However, my fear is not PE so much as having another section. I am too terrified to go through that again. I will try to ensure at all times that my daughter is surrounded by her extended family and that she is never lonely. She is a much loved and longed for child and is the apple of her grandparents and parents eyes. I can't begin to express the gratitude to all the women who have shared their stories with me and offered very good advice. To all the wonderful mothers who are trying again after preelampsia, from my heart, I wish you all the best and hope that you have your babies safe and well in your arms soon.
Love to you all
