All that I want-is another baby

Postby lornarose » Tue Jul 10, 2012 05:25 pm

Hello to all
I have not been on this forum for a long time. The distance between myself and my October 2010 PE has caused me to have selective amnesia. I am sure my mind and body are playing tricks on me as I am now able to shrug off the trauma of emergency c-section, crazy bp's etc, like water off a duck's back. My desire and longing to try for another baby has consumed me for quite some time and I am now ready to take the plunge. Is this strange?
I am not really weighing up the risk of PE in my decision to try again-I am concerned about my ability to conceive and also more concerned about issues related to my cervix. I had lletz procedure in 2011 in which piece of my cervix was removed. I am categorically a high risk patient but am feeling positive and hope to overcome my poorer than average odds. Oh yes, I am also plagued with an unusually irregular cycle and have also joined the ranks of the mature mother as I am now 35 years old. My plan-healthy eating, folic acid, exercise and hope. I begin my journey tomorrow. I would surmise that I need more than a little luck. I wish all my fellow PE sisters love and luck too.xxxx

Welcome back to the forums!
I believe that it is nature's way to outfit us with some sort of amnesia, otherwise we'd probably never try again. :D Good luck with TTC and let us know how it goes!

I think the way you are feeling is normal. It takes time to feel ready. It took over 2 years for me to feel ready and now I am more ready then ever and have that same desire I had for a baby that I did when I wanted to get pregnant with my son. It's a great feeling when you are ready.
