No but I am making an appointment in the beginning of june! I wont have insurance until I get married and I want to get pregnant right after I get married so by the time I get bloodwork done I wont have the due date I would like so I am just going to meet with the MFM first and talk to her about it but I have to pay out of pocket.
Why did you have to go to a endocrinologist?

Hi- sorry about your scary experience, but glad your son is doing well. There are lots of ladies here that have had positive outcomes with a 2nd pregnancy (I'm one!). I met with my OB, endocrinologist and several MFM doctors before TTC again. I wanted to make sure we had a plan in place and that I had any necessary testing done before I got pregnant. Have you talked with your OB or met with a specialist?

PS- Congrats on your upcoming wedding!

I had my baby boy at 26 weeks he lived through an infection and NEC he just turned one (9months corrected) and I am getting married I plan on getting pregnant on our honeymoon I know I am so lucky to have my son he is amazing but I cant shake the feeling that I want another baby I know alot of you have had success stories with your second child and Id like to know how you did it? Like were you a stay at home mom, did you exercise, did you try to cut salt out or were you on a special diet? Anything would help please id appreciate it. With my son I had no idea what preeclampsia was or that my mom had toxemia so I just ate semi healthy I would love to keep this second child in me as long as I can and I know that everyones wish haha but im just looking for some advice
