I still can't believe I am pregnant again. Its been 5 years since my first pregnancy that ended at 25 weeks with severe preeclampsia and an emergency c-section. My son lived 2 weeks before passing away in the NICU. I am 8 weeks along now and so far, everything is okay. I think I have been to the doc 6 or 7 times already. I have an MFM and a High Risk OB. Both are extremely supportive and determined to get me farther along. I have started a baby aspirin regimen along with high doses of Omega-3 at the advice of my MFM. Has anyone else done this or is anyone else doing this now? My first pregnancy was full of nonstop morning sickness, everyday, all day long from 6 weeks to 19 weeks. So far, I haven't experienced it. I am hoping it stays away. My anxiety is killing me though... I know we are planning on doing the First Trimester Screening which involves lots of tests and ultrasound screens on the placenta to check for preeclampsia markers. Has anyone ever done these tests and found out anything regarding pre-e? I am just hoping and praying every single day that this experience is different. Its been a long road to get here and I hope to frequent this board when I need some reassurance or support.
