I don't have any answers but wish I did. I too had pe in my first not my second and wonder what would happen with a third. Hopefully someone will have a better answer.

I don't, but I just wanted to chime in that I really like your MFM's optimistic perspective!! That's so cool.

Wish you the best either way! :)

Thinking about #3!

Postby julieb » Thu Apr 19, 2012 07:24 am

I cannot believe that we are actually thinking about going for #3! There is a huge part of me that thinks we should just stop while we are ahead, we are so lucky to have two healthy kids at this point and I wonder if our good luck has run out?? I saw my MFM and he said that other people might see it that it is our turn for some good luck, that was an interesting perspective :) We consider ourselves very lucky that my son is healthy and that I made it to 36 weeks with our daughter without any PE! My concern at this point is that my BP is higher than it was before TTC #2. I guess I want everything to be exactly the same since my pregnancy went much better that time around. Anyone with CHTN have any insight for me? What were your pressures at the beginning of pregnancy and how did the pregnancy go? Thank you!
