My DH wasn't so sure about us getting pregnant again. Here we are though , 28 weeks, with a boy on the way[:)]. I'm starting to think my body is just not meant to go through pregnancies. I was sick for so long after Rylee (6 months). We both knew we wanted to have 2, but I know deep down my DH and my mom would have such a hard time watching me go through it again. I think if I was in their shoes it would be pretty hard to bear also. I know we suffer the most but our family suffers as well.

Everyone is real excited about the new baby, especially big sis ( she just turned 3)

Anyway I think you know your body best. I personally am done after 2 but we only wanted 2 in the first place. Girl & Boy![:D]

Good Luck to you all!

Kaz, what signs are you having? I beleive the earliest known case of true preeclampsia was 18 1/2 weeks, but usually it doesn't occur untill after 20 weeks of pregnancy. If your blood pressure is becoming hypertensive before that point, normally doctors will consider it a sign that you have underlying chronic hypertension (meaning your body is headed toward hypertension that hasn't shown up yet and the stress of pregnancy brings it out).

HI I am new here also and am having some early signs that my doc are concerned with. Swelling all over, headaches, trace of protein, high BP for me, and rapid heart rate and breathing. Im hoping to make some friends here that can help me. My first son I had no Probs, my second I wasnt diagnosed until the date of my delivery but I had no signs, I had 1 m/c at 10 wks and 1 tubal at 8 weeks in nov 2003, Im now 20 weeks with my girl that I waitedd forever for and dont want any complications. Hope to meet someone that can help.

hi i`m having a lot of swelling all over, my urine showed traces of protein ans i`m having severe headaches. my blood pressure is 130/80 which isn`t to bad but i`m also finding i`m getting vert short of breath not sure if i`m heading down the same road or not. i saw my midwife at 17 weks and she didn`t seem to concerned but i`m due to see the ob`s at 22 weeks and think i should mention all this to him.
i`m maybe just a bit scared but after losing 6 babies i am just a bit concerened.
