After having an emergency c-section at 35 weeks with my first son and 16 days in the NICU for him, I was very scared to get pregnant again. I got pregnant a few months before my son's 3rd birthday. My 2nd pregnancy went...

At 20 weeks, the MFM checked at my uterine blood flow (done with a Level 2 ultrasound) and she saw ...

Re: HELLP with 1st pregnancy, now pregnant again, high risk?

I just shared my story so if you have time, check out my post from today for the fullblown story. I had HELLP the day I turned 35 weeks and delivered my first son immediately once they received my blood work at hospital. The dr said we had to do the c-section immediately. The symptoms had probably b...
