I'm back for round 3 My short background - in 2009, 35 wks into pg with DD started developing high BP, bed rest, full blown pre-e, induction at 37 wks and then the super fun post partum pre-e with mag/sulf. All with midwives at a birthing center. Was on BP meds for 8 wks PP. 2011- 35 wks with DD high BP again, bed rest, starting raising so induction at 37 wks - don't think it was actually classified as pre-e but PIH (but I can't remember the details..it was only 19 mo ago!) with same midwife group. Was on BP meds for 15 mo PP.
Surprise pregnancy and we've moved half way across the country. I'd prefer to go the midwife and birthing center route again BUT the laws here are much different and so far I haven't found a midwife group that hasn't told me that they'd transfer me at the rise of BP at all. That doesn't make much sense for me to start with one care provider (and pay for one) to get sent to another at the final weeks (and pay for the full bill for another.) I'm 15 wks so I def need to find a place but the thought of a hospital birth is really freaking me out.
Any idea what the stats are for someone like me? I'm *assuming* I'll get at minimum PIH again. I spoke to my former midwife today and she said she'd recommend me start medication while pregnant this time even though I never have before.
Okay. So there ya go, little intro and a question
