Hello everyone just wanted to let you know that I had my baby girl at 38 weeks. I was induced, not due to pre-eclampsia but because the doctor was concerned that my placenta wasn't working properly because the baby was measuring small. Jadyn Marie was born March 1st at 5lbs 13ozs 19 3/4 inches in length. She is doing great and we are all adjusting well to having her around. My son was a little jealous at first but he is getting over that now. I have learned to give him his own special time so that helps. I wanted to wish all of you luck out there I guess it is possible to have a second pregnancy that does not end with preeclampsia after all. I am not sure if we will have any more children but I am just thankful that everything went well with this preganancy.

Thanks again for all of your thoughts and prayers...

Had HELLP with my second baby only.....but with the situation, doctors have advised me not to have anymore (which has me pretty depressed of late) - when I think about going through it all again it is really scary - I would probably be a nervous wreck which wouldn't help. Sounds like you have great care...I would rather a doctor be too cautious than not enough.....kudos to you all for giving it another go - and congrats Em on your adoption!!! Karsyn - so glad to hear that you are full term now!!! ENJOY!!

Hello all!

Just wanted to update you all and say sorry for leaving you all hanging...

I am currently getting ready to begin my 38th week of pregnancy so I have myself my first full termer so far. (they are considered full term after 37 full weeks) I am excited but ready to have her anytime now. No signs of preeclampsia so far.

Thanks for all your support.

wow congratuladions em. and Karsyn I know exactly how you feel. I will not be having anymore children (I had HELLP on my 3rd pregnancy). I know how scary it would be though. I would just keep a close eye on yourself for symptoms and make sure you and your doctor have the same game plan.
