Good luck, Julie!
Here is my story....
My first pregnancy, with my first husband, at age 21 , was picture perfect. 42 weeks, vaginal birth , healthy 8lb.12 oz baby.[ Alanna]
I divorced, remarried, and at 33 , had Jessica 6 weeks early, due to Pre-eclampsia. They induced labor, but the baby became distressed and an emergency c-section was performed. Jessica Rose was 4lbs.5oz, and besides jaundice she was fine. My pressure really went crazy after the birth, but it returned to normal shortly. I've never had before or since, any blood pressure problems.
I am now 37. Still married to Jessica's dad! [ he's a keeper!]
September 22nd , 2003 I suffered a misscarriage. I had extensive bloodwork done, which all came back normal.
I am pregnant again, 10 weeks 3 days, due July 30th, 2004. I am trying to stay calm,take vitamins, eat healthy,and rest alot. Today my pressure was 117/62. I have a great new doctor, who is really great and always listens. I guess all I can really do is pray.....
