question about 3rd pregnancy

Postby angvbc » Mon Mar 19, 2012 09:07 am

i asked this same question about 4 months ago but no one knew an answer so i'll ask again.

im 24 weeks in my third pregnancy now. my first i had pree and delivered at 31 weeks. my second i delivered at 39 weeks without pree! so my question is: is there anyone with a similar experience and how'd your third pregnancy go? thanks!

I hope someone answers you soon, we are considering trying for a 3rd and are kind of in the same boat with an early delivery the first time around and a much later delivery for #2. I hope the 3rd time goes smoothly for you!!

wow julieb! our third is a girl and we have picked the name makenna for her. yours is the first baby i know of with that name! we were considering makkena, but for nickname purposes, i like the double n better than the double k.

That is crazy! Makenna is definitely not very common but now that we have Makenna, I have come across a few. We call our daughter Kenna a lot so the spelling works well for that :) I hope that your pregnancy continues to go smoothly!!

My first came at 36 weeks, but I was diagnosed around week 32. My second, we delivered by section at 37 weeks (mildly elevated pressures postpartum). We had our third in January of 2011, and it was my best pregnancy to date. No swelling, *perfect* bps, low-normal weight gain, and a biggish babe (and I was 7 years older). Yeah, it's all anecdotal, but when you're considering TTC, you want to hear it all (at least I did!). :) Best wishes!
