Re: "Advanced Maternal Age" and preeclampsia

I am 40 today! My first pregnancy ended in stillbrith in May 2009 at 26 weeks; my 2nd developed minor complications at term (transverse lie leading to hospital stay and elective c-section) but no sign of PE at all! My second daughter is now healthy, happy and approaching 5 months! At 39 I did not fe...

Two years

It is two years today since Alice was stillborn. Its such a painful and sad memory still - time moves on but in many ways I don't. I am so so lucky to have little Rachel, but still find myself feeling jealous of families with two daughters! Alice - I so wish you were here with us still, it was so cr...

Re: 4 weeks since I lost my daughter

Flori, I am so so sorry for the loss of your daughter. I too lost my first daughter to pre-eclampsia at 26 weeks nearly 2 years ago now. Like you, I had pre-eclampsia and HELLP, my stillborn daughter was also IUGR at 1lb 4oz. Its a horribly deep pain and grief that none of us should have to go throu...

Re: Questions about placental abruptions

My Alice was a similar size to your son - mildly growth restricted (I had got a week further) but nothing very severe and no-one was very worried until she died. I had a placental abruption in that pregnancy which was not why she finally died but obviously a contributory factor. I also had no underl...

Re: Has anyone worked full time throughout their 2nd pregnan

Yes - I worked full time. In fact I worked very long hours! I had a great second pregnancy - no PE, no high bp, and now have a healthy happy 12 week old daughter to show for it - born at 38+2 weeks by c section but only due to a transverse lie, not any other problems. I worked right up to the day or...

Re: 2nd pregnancy and breech presentation

Yes, my first pregnancy resulted in stillbirth at 26 weeks due to severe PE and HELLP. My second was transverse at 36 weeks (was head down every 2 week scan from 30-36 weeks) then turned! I was admitted to hospital (I don't think you need that for breech) and delivered by c section at 38 weeks. All ...

Re: Sperm meets egg plan not working for us..

We had this problem too Jean but obviously managed to get pregnant anyway. I was putting pressure on DH to "perform" at the right times (and he did mostly, lol), but that was hard going sometimes.We found it very stressful - but did get pregnant before too long. I think the advice you have to try to...
