Hi. I was a member of his forum a while back under another username.
In 2004 I had my daughter, Lianna, at 33 wks 6 days by emergency c-section due to preeclampsia. She was a 2 lbs. 15 ounces.
A few months after that I became pregnant again. My daughter, Layla, was born at 30 wks. weighing 1 lb. 10 ounces.
Both my daughters are healthy first graders. Layla who I thought would have so many problems met the cutoff to be in the same grade as her sister since she was born in September rather than her due date in end of November. I can't believe how far we've gotten. I remember after Layla was born I just prayed that any issues she would have due to her prematurity and iugr would not be major. I never imagined she would have none. If anyone told me back then, while I watcher her in her isolette, I would've never believed she would be okay.
After almost 7 years I have decided to start ttc. I'v went back and forth. I see that I got lucky with my daughters being so healthy. I worry that if I have a 3rd it would be worse. Especially because I am no longer in my 20's. But after much thought I've decided that I should try for a third because I want a bigger family so bad.
It's nice to be on here!
