Rebecca, I am on my fourth pregnancy. 2 With my first husband and 2 with my current. I had PE with my first one, PIH with my second one and Post partum PE with my third. With this one I have PE as well. you just really never know. Some women are different. I feel that I can grow the babies healthy inside me, but I take the brunt of the pregnancy on my body! Which is fine by me, I would whether me get sick than my babies!:) After Will, we knew that I could not take another pregnancy due to the problems. Needless to say, Allyson is a surprise baby! All the better! :) The possibilities scare me. Especially when I have 3 at home that I know can not go without a mommy! We have opted for the permanent solution to no more babies this time around. Although; When Will walked into the other room with a laundry basket over his lil' head with snot everywhere just a smiling like there was no care in the world...DH mentioned that he wanted another one! I 'Bout died!! I think, I hope that it was just something to say at that time. Because I know that I can not go through another pregnancy like this one. It was too emotionally draining for me and DH both. Not to mention, our parents!
Like I said, everyone is different. There is just no way to tell you for sure or not if you will have a 'normal' pregnancy! My OB did ask me if we were planning any more. When I told her no, she said that was a good thing. "Pregnancy is too hard on you, Sherry" Shes not a kiddin'!!
Good Luck in your decision! I would have one more in a minute if I had a guarentee of being PE free!!
