thank you for your response. I saw a peri with Travler. We went to Dallas practically once a week until he got here. I talked with Dr Andersen about this shortly after Travler was born. he was more concerned with chrom problems than preeclampsia. Being diligent is not a problem.

Hi Michelle and welcome....

Do I think your crazy.... NOPE not at all!....
My story starts over 14 years ago with the birth of my oldest son. I had PE with him but got to 37 weeks then 2 years later had another boy at 34 weeks due to PE. Two years ago (new husband etc) we had a little girl. PE hit hard and strong and had no choice but to dilv at 25 weeks (she lived for 3 1.2 months) We are currently 32 weeks preg (33 wks tomorrow) and will dilv at 35 weeks as long as the Amino is ok. So I can completely understand your wants and needs for another child. I didn't even think about telling my family until I was 3 to 4 months preg as I didn't want to hear the complaints from them like how crazy I was for going thru it again.

My advise would be seek the advise of a Peri (high risk doctor) first. Have a list of questions, and a game plan from the get go. Sure it's ALOT of work going back and fourth to the doctors twice a week but I know that I am getting the best care for me and my little boy.

Good luck and let us know how you make out and what you decide....

Hello everyone, I am not new to the website but I am new to this topic. I am the mother of a 10 month old baby boy who is my only successful pregnancy in 3 attempts. I lost my first baby at 12 weeks and my second precious angel at 6 months due to preeclampsia. Travler arrived at 34.5 weeks a bit small but totally healthy. He is a beautiful, funny and smart little boy that makes my life so happy.

I have no place to talk about what is on my heart because my family will not hear my thoughts before they turn on the drama.

I want another baby.

I am 41 years old and my husband in 49. My preeclampsia with was severe with my second child but I did not have it with Travler. I have been reading the stats and articles on having a baby over 35. Bottom line ... I want to have another baby. Am i crazy? Am I totally selfish?

I want some rational and calm thoughts. The thing about the forum that I love is that you can talk to people you do not know but feel welcome. There is a place in my heart for another baby. I want Travler to have a brother or a sister.

I am burdened with this decision and I feel very alone.


Thank you,

Michelle (in Texas)
