I have read many stories like my own on here and I still don't have answers. I had a perfect pregnancy up until 37 weeks. My Bp all of a sudden rose and was hospitalized, just in case they took my little girl by c section at 37 1/2 weeks. I came home 2 days later, but I really think that I should have been kept longer. My bp was still high even with meds and I still had a lot of swelling. The next night I was back in the ER. My Bp was extremely high, I couldn't breathe, and my heart was racing. I was in icu for 4 days, had chest X-rays, echo, and lost 40 lbs of fluid. My ob was out of town for thanksgiving so another doctor seen me he said that I shouldn't have any more kids. I lost it. I just can't understand why good people can't have kids while others can have 7 just for their welfare check. Anyway, no one told me what happened until I got a copy of my records and went over them my self. Severe preeclampsia, pulmonary edema, and chf was listed. So, when I was released I still had to see a cardio. Well, I had 2 echos and a stress test since and my heart is fine. No bp meds anymore either. I now see a high risk ob that is associated with a women's and children's hospital and he told me that If I get pregnant again I have less than a 5% chance that would happen again. Did I mention I'm only 28? I just don't understand how one doctor can tell me never have another and the other stated I will be fine. My daughter is now 2 and I would love to have another I'm just so scared. Anybody have any advice?
