Hello ladies! I am from Alberta and am 13 weeks into my 2nd pregnancy. I had class 1 HELLP with my first and it certainly took awhile to get up the nerve to get pregnant again. I already am super paranoid with this pregnancy but everything seems to be going okay so far. Nice to meet you all!

Hello everyone,

I'm a Canadian girl here on this forums as well. I have been posted on this site for nearly 2 months and I never know that there was a section for Canadians. LOL. Anyways my name is Kelly and I'm from Ontario. I just had my second baby a little girl named Nicole who was born at 27 wks 3 days due to severe pre-e. I had pre-e with my first pregnancy and because it wasn't treated properly I lost my son Zachary at 34 wks. My daughter is doing very well and I have been told that she could be moved in as early as 2 wks to a level 2 special care nursery. Nicole now weighs 3lbs 5 ozs and the pedis are trying her off her CPAP. Take care. I'll post updates. I look forward to hearing from any moms on this site from Canada.

Hi Kelly,
Congratulations on your daughter! You must be very proud and pleased with her progress. That is a huge weight gain! I'm so sorry to read about the loss of your son.

Level 2 is something to look forward to. I remember those hospital weeks very well and Special Care was a million times easier to cope with--there seemed to be so much more space and light and easier access to my baby. It's still no picnic so make sure you are VERY nice to yourself--sometimes I think Starbucks Frappacinos were the only thing that got me through.

I haven't posted since the birth of my daughter (six months ago--wow! It's gone fast, but then it seems like forever too), but I certainly got a lot of support from the people on the site. Half of me just never wants to think about pre-eclampsia again and half of me wants to be more of an activist about it. I won't be having more kids but maybe when my life gets less baby-insane I'll try to do some consciousness-raising here in Ontario.

Very best wishes to you and to Nicole!

Thanks for the reply Suze. My little Nicole is doing fantastic. At almost 4lbs and now off everything except her feeding tube she now in a level 2 nursery still at the hospital she was born at. I really understand what you mean by being kind to yourself. I have been trying to do that. To treat myself to things for me. My husband and I just celebrated our 12th anniversary and we went for a dinner out together, the first one since Nicole was born 7 wks ago. It has been a rough time for us both with having her born 12wks early and all the uncertainty that goes with having a baby in NICU. We look forward to having her moved to a level 2 nursery in our local hospital which is only 5 mins away instead of an hour away. Most importantly having her home finally. I look foward to hearing from any more moms from Canada. Take care Suze and congrats on the birth of your little girl.
