I am a mother of 2 beautiful girls, both born via a csection. My last csection was in 2009 and was a complete disaster ending with an 8 hour reconstructive surgery to put me back together. The recovery was hell but here I am 5 years later and doing fine.
My husband and I have been careful about not getting pregnant, but here I am 6 weeks pregnant. I had gone through numerous emotions in the last few days. From happiness to being terrified, from being excited that this is my way to have another child to considering other options.
There are lots of concerns I have and its scaring me to death to think of the next 7-8 months.
- I had high blood pressure with my last dd. At week 37 I was induced because it was too high. I am afraid that it will come back this time and potentially will make me have a preterm baby
- My placenta was "crap" in the words of my dr
- 22 hours of vbac ended up in a csection, but bladder, shortened cervix, and hell recovery. I am now concerned about all the scar tissue there is and implications on the pregnancy
There are so many concerns i have and so little guarantees. I saw my OB yesterday and he seemed to have a very positive answer to everything. To be honest when I went to see him i was convinced he will talk me out of having this one but it turned out to be the opposite. He seems to be totally on board and very positive that we can do this.
I guess i don't know what i am asking in this post. Perhaps its just a vent.
Has anyone done anything (natural) to prevent high blood pressure in pregnancy? My ob is suggesting I go on a low dose of baby aspirin for the next 20 weeks. Is there anything natural that can be done as well? I've never had high blood pressure, even after my dd was born it went back to normal and has been optimal (my family dr said i could be an astronaut)
