I had my baby boy on 10/7 at 35 weeks due to my water breaking, I had high bp throughout the pregnancy and some protein in my urine, my OB was worried I was going to get PE again but I did not officialy get diagnosed with it. I had to take weekly trips to MFM at a hospital over an hour away and had an overnight stay. It was really hard with my one year old daughter, not knowing if I was going to get put in the hospital and being on bed rest. My daughter was also born early at 29 weeks due to severe PE. Now my husband and my mother think that my husband should get a vasectomy (sp?), but I feel like I still want one more child. They both say that I could die and leave my children without a mother, which I know could happen, but I feel with good prenatal care, that would not happen. Then they always say that even if I didnt get PE I cant carry a baby to term, they say I proved that twice. My husband also says that the NICU is the worst experience he has ever had in his life, which I agree it is rough, but I just feel like he cannot predict what will happen in a next pregnancy. I know I should just be happy with my two wonderful children, but I feel like I want one more. What have you done or what would you do if your husband felt like this and you did not? Any advice greatly apperciated!
