Baby fever that is...and it is not good!
I cannot stop thinking about having another baby. We can't even consider it right now (if ever). I was diagnosed diabetic in Nov. 09 and I am back on the insulin and we are trying to regulate my BG numbers and I'll probably get an insulin pump in the next month. I had GD during my pg with Alison and it basically never resolved. Did find out that I carry an antibody that makes me more likely to develop diabetes, but the pg just triggered it into action. It totally sucks, but that is a whole nother post. ;) My liver enzymes are still elevated and they don't know why. Pretty soon they are going to send me for a liver biopsy if they don't go down.
Health wise, having another baby is probably not a good idea (at least not for awhile, but I'm not getting any younger!)But I can't help thinking about it. It totally scares me to think of getting pg again, moreso than when I was trying to get pg after losing Abby. I think I just have more to consider now. I don't know. Sorry for the long rambling post, but I think out of everyone, you ladies will understand the most. Pretty much everyone IRL assumes we are done so I don't really want to talk to my friends about it since they all say "seriously, you want to get pg again? why?"...um, why did you want to keep having kids. Grrr...wow. this is long.
