SO..... Am I completely crazy??
After seeing all that my sister has gone through, almost exactly the same way I did, I still think we are going to try for another baby! My feelings haven't really changed about our decision, but I am a little more scared! My sister had a seizure Monday, 3 weeks after her daughter was born, mine happened about a week after my son was born. The doctors were watching her very closely and she had been monitoring her BP at home. Everything was looking fine and out of the blue her BP spiked and she started to seize! I just wish that there was some predictability as we both had preeclampsia that did not get better after delivery and escalated to eclampsia. I went even further into HELLP syndrom! I feel like I am really testing fate by going for our second, but I have faith in God. I have a much better understanding now, and my outlook on life has changed making me think more positivly!! But I still think I may be a little crazy
