Let's just hope that all else goes well. I am staying very positive about everything. Life is no guarantee (that I have already learned) and if a baby is meant to be in my life, then I will be thrilled.

I am so sorry I didn't get back until today to post my reply that you all so graciously asked for.
I loved my new doctor, but knew I would since this is the same practice that took care of my sister. Basically, my doctor said that I would be watched more than normal. Probably have more ultrasounds for me and the baby, especially since Tyler was born at 26 wks +1 day and only weighed 15 ounces. He was pretty small for his age. I would probably have more tests (blood/urine) and may look at going on bedrest after the second trimester. I was also referred to a peri at Yale-New Haven hospital and have my appt on 7/12. They were very, very nice when I called. We all know that the doctors have no real reasons on guarantees for us with our pre-e and HELLP. I did ask about a percentage and the doctor said anywhere from 0-100%. I knew why he was telling me this, not to scare me, but I could have a somewhat normal pregnancy or have eclampsia again. I did not get to ask all my questions, but many are for the peri. The peri would come down to our area when needed, but I would be seen by my regular OB, they work with the peri's all the time. I would have to go to Yale just a few times. I would most definietly have a c-section since I had a classical c-section (horizontal cut outside, vertical inside)..but I do not care about that :D Overall, I was very comfy with the doc and so was my dh. Now we just have to plan finacially for both my tubal reversal and anticipate any bed rest.
