The truth is, people who have had uneventful pregnancies never think twice about things going wrong - and why would they?? My family always downplays my experience with the birth of my son, who was born at 36 weeks by emergency c section due to severe HELLP syndrome. I was put to sleep as the anastesiologist was afraid I would not clot (platelets at under 40). I will always be sad I could not be awake when he was born, but I am forever grateful he was ok.
Funny thing, I recently had a miscarriage at 7 weeks, When I found out I was pregnant I was so concerned that I would develop pre-e, etc again that I didn't really expect this. I guess you never know how things will turn out, but I really want another child, so we will definitly try again!
Good luck to you all!!!
