Honestly, I think that if Cara would have lived through what happened last time I am not sure if I would be able to do it again, in fear of losing my life and then leaving her alone.
BUT since I have nothing to really lose and all to gain at this point I did try again. Its scary, but honestly I am my own advocate. Telling my doctors, I will be seen weekly. Not asking.
Another thing that helps, is it is all a huge crap shoot. There is NOTHING that will treat/prevent. Not to mention I know women who have no underlying conditions that went on to get PE and HELLP again, on the other hand I know women (myself included) that have underlying conditions with no signs of PE. I truly can say I believe that it is all up to how the placenta implants its self.
There is never a 100% chance of getting it again. It is typially 25-30% so just think you have a 70% of not getting it again...AND if women do, its typically much later, or milder. So thats a plus. I looked at it and my plus's outweighed the minus's. Good Doctors, Weekly Appointments at 26 weeks. Lovenox (not proven to help, but not proven to hurt either).
I never ever in a million years would have thought I would make it to 30 weeks + with not even a trip to L&D. Its a blessing.
Another thing I did was get tested for everything under the sun. I emptied out my savings, and credit card loaded it up to make sure I got Cardiology testing, and blood work monthly until everything was peachy keen!
I hope this helps someone out there to try again, its honestly not as scary as I would have imagined, once your pregnant...there is no turning back, so your forced to take it day by day and every day that you do not have PE is a fantastic day!
