It's wonderful to hear from other women who feel the same! I don't think anyone can really understand the emotional rollar coaster involved with all this without having experienced it themselves. -- I did have one "normal" pregnancy. My second one was the PERFECT pregnancy. No complications whatsoever, and a wonderful 2 hour delivery. I acutally enjoyed (can you believe that? [:)]) being pregnant. I can't figure it out because with the 1st and 3rd I had PE, and this time around (#4) has not been any picnic so far. I guess in the back of my mind there's always the hope that I'll have another pregnancy like the second. Yes, it would be nice to have an uncomplicated pregnancy and not have to worry about every symptom. With all this said, I guess having complications has given me a deeper appreciation and love for the children that I do have, as well as compassion for other women suffering the same.
