It's been a long time

It has been a really long time since I last posted on this site. I am not sure if many of you would even remember me. Well I am back! I am now 17 weeks pregnant with my fourth pregancy. I had my daughter at 33 weeks due to severe pe in 2005. Then in 2006 I was 23 weeks along with my son when I had eclampsia, emergency c-section, coma, then had a stroke post part from a mag sulfate overdose. Our son made it 27 days! My next pregnacy ended in miscarriage at 12 weeks likely due to aspirin I was taking for the preeclampsia prevention. So now I am 17 weeks, still on Zofran for morning sickness,(I have also had hyperemesis with my daughter, and this one). So far everything looks perfect except I am still trying to get back up to my pregnancy weight. I have no known disorders, and have no risk factors other than history of pe. I will try to keep everyone updated on me. I love following all of your stories as well.

Welcome back :D and congratulations on 17 weeks, albeit with some nausea. Let's hope this pregnancy will be less "exciting"!

My goodness I'm so sorry for all that you've been through. I am pregnant with my 2nd (almost 28 weeks!) after losing my first at 33 weeks. This is one crazy/scary journey we're all on, but wonderful to have other women who understand. I really hope you get the uneventful safe pregnancy that you so desperately deserve.

Pregnant again with what I pray is our rainbow baby, due Oct. 14th 2012. Will induce labor no later than 38 weeks if we make it that far!
