I have read through some of these posts and please bear with me. My son was born at 31 weeks (3lbs 2oz - 1 month in NICU) due to eclampsia and HELLP (with seizures) - he is now a healthy and very active 2 year old!! After delivery I experienced acute liver failure and kidney dysfunction. Two years after delivery and my body is still recovering from all the issues. I should also point out that I had HG for the pregnancy as well - lost 1/3 of my body weight. I am writing here because I was informed by at least three different ob's as well as my gp that it would be very dangerous for me to get pregnant again; though obviously it is our choice. I have done a lot of research about HELLP trying to weigh my options. I have always wanted a large family - yet the possibility of this time being worse then last scares me. I want to thank all of you that have posted your experiences!
