I can relate alot to your story honey. With my first two i had Pre-eclampsia. I had a boy 1st and then a girl. Now im ready to try for a 3rd BUT everyone including my nearest and dearest are putting so much negativeness into my head. Ive been refferred by my GP to a PE Specialist so hopefully i can ask her what might my 3rd pregnancy be like and how might i be looked after. With my 2nd it took me about 6 months to concieve ut i dont know how it will be this time IF i decide to have a 3rd. Ive been wanting a child for 3 years now since my baby was born. They told me not to have anymore but in a letter i found when i got copies of my medical notes, it said that any subsequent pregnancies should be started off with low dose aspirin which i didnt have in my first two pregnancies. I really want to try this out...it may help me but im scared. I also know that there are so may people out there who dont want me to have another baby and i know that i wont get the support i need instead they will be waiting for smething bad to happen so they can say i told you so. Im sure with the right care it should be ok but then again...what if...??? Low dose aspirin may realy help but i cant base my decision on just wanting to try something out......i really want another baby and my hubby is being lovely about it. Ive watched my fiends having lovely pregnancies where near to the end they are so fed up they want the baby out ASAP whereas thise with PE get their babys sooner than planned and dont get to moan about how uneventful pregnancy is. Theyve had two gorgeous children and im happy for them but i while smiling with them i sob my heart out when im on my own. For me to get pregnanct i have to plan the whole thing and weigh out the odds and evens etc etc.
I love being pregnant, its the best feeling. At 1st i was upset having had two C-sections cos some people think its soooo easy. All i know is my second c-section was horrid, i felt as though my head was going to explode and i could feel vomit coming up my throat- i honestly thought it was the end for me.... Maybe i should post a question about peoples experiences of C-section. With me, as soon as could feel my legs again i was up and walking. I wasnt going to just lay there in my bed and/or being pushed in a wheelchair. Ofcourse i nearly fainted and dropped on several occasions but i just wanted to be in control again... This PE robs us of everything, something that is out of our control.

Hi- I know firsthand how upsetting infertility can be. How long have you been ttc? Have you met with an infertility specialist (RE)? Are you with the same partner?

I so understand the feeling of time running out. My clock is ticking. Right now I have to wait until the fall/winter for TTC, b/c I had a classical c-section in danger of rupture if I get pregnant too early. I had my fair share of IF and hope that it won't be a factor when I am ready to TTC.

Have the doctors given you a reason for your IF?

Honey-I am going through the same thing but not as long-see my other post-when do you stop TTC. I am thinking IVF-money is a huge factor. We just spent a boat-load doing IUIs and meds. I feel angry about being robbed of having a normal pregnancy and not being able to take my baby home for 3 months. My shower was ruined and I was sick the entire 27 weeks of my pregnancy. I am resentful that I cannot have another due to IF issues and a high FSH. I hate the fact that my son will be an only child and I loved having a brother growing up. You are younger-I am 34 so I KNOW about time running out. You are not alone. Hugs to you! Stay strong!

infertility after preeclampsia twice

Postby honey » Fri May 07, 2010 09:27 am

i'm hoping someone may be going through something similiar to me.i'm 28 and my children are 12 and 7.i had preeclampsia both times was induced with my dd at 37wks following a month of bedrest in hospital.ds was born at 32wks by csection after i started seeing stars.i thought i wouldnt have more children as i was scared of going through it again but nearly 3yrs ago the hospital reassured us they could take care of me.since then we've been ttc had all the tests and now saving for ivf.i cant understand whats wrong why it wont happen and i still feel terrified of what may happen.its been 8yrs now since i was pregnant and i feel times running out.no one understands my fears i know as no ones had preeclampsia,others say theres no need to have any more.i was very lucky my children are fine and i'm really sorry for those whos didnt make it.i just cant help wanting another,sometimes i feel angry this had to happen to me i feel so jealous sometimes and no one understands.i'd love to hear from some of you have similiar feelings x
