Re: pregnant and elated and terrified

Thanks for responding. I'm looking forward to reading people's good news. It helps me to see those positive stories. Being busy helps stave off the fears, but often when the nights calm down those ugly thoughts pop up.

Here’s to keeping busy and healthy. ;)

pregnant and elated and terrified

I am lucky enough to be pregnant, but I am terrified. I'm going to be 39 at the end of November, and never lost the 40 pounds I should have. I'm so happy and yet so scared. I had class 1 HELLP and delivered a beautiful healthy boy at 33w5d. I really wanted to add to my family, went and talked to the...

Re: Wanting to try again but haven't reached my goal...

Yes these links do help. Thanks you. I am currently scheduled to go and see three doctors next week. The high risk specialist from the practice I went to during my last pregnancy. A new doctor at a somewhat smaller practice, and a MFM at the Women's hospital. I am terrified to try again because the ...

of losing as much weight as I wanted to, but I'm going to turn 39 this fall and think time may be slipping away.

Re: Feeling Guilty for Wanting to Try Again

I ask myself some of the same questions everyday. Will having another child kill me? Will I have to be in the hospital for a long time away from my son who brings me pure joy and love everyday? Am I willing to risk the great thing I have for what I could have? But, the urge to have another is still ...

General Anesthesia

I had HELLP syndrome over a year ago, and I'm just now starting to feel "normal". My question is about general anesthesia for delivery. My doctor decided to deliver me this way. Was anybody else delivered under general? I can't remember very much of my experience, which is probably a good thing, but...

Low Amniotic FLuid @ Hellp

I experience low amniotic fluid, gestational diabetes, and finally ended up delivering early because of class I HELLP. Did anybody else experience low fluid along with their HELLP or PRE-E pregnancy?

Re: Trouble not beating myself up daily

Thanks for the replies. I am starting to see a counselor and working on getting rid of the weight. I think doing something is going to help with these feelings.

Trouble not beating myself up daily

I'm having a hard time not blaming myself for my HELLP syndrome. I feel like if only I would have eaten properly or not let myself become overweight I wouldn't have to deny my son a sibling. Really having a hard time with this. Anybody else successfully deal with similar issues.

Re: Shoulder pain?

I had shoulder pain I kept asking for heating pads when in the hosital for low fluid and nobody made the connection. It felt like muscle strain. It was pretty painful and nothing made it go away.
