Well, I am pregnant again, for the sixth time. I have a number or factors that make me high risk. I guess we'll start with the first.
I've been pregnant six times now and had three miscarriages and 2 live births. All of my miscarriages are early, which leads them to believe they are either chromosomal in nature, or just a hormonal deficiency. I never got testes as I ended up pregnant the month I was to be tested. Then I had my daughter.
I also have high blood pressure that resulted in Pre-e with my son. I had him at 36 weeks and he was in NICU for a week. That was the most terrifying adventure of my life. I don't want a repeat. Thankfully, with my daughter, I delivered at 38 weeks with no pre-e.
But after I had her, I hemmoraghed in the hospital. Thankfully they were able to get in under control in a couple hours and my hemoglobin only dropped to a 9.
However, 3 weeks post partum, I hemmoraghed again at home. This time, I ended up getting 2 blood transfusions when my Hemoglobin dropped below a 6. It was very scary and it utterly terrifies me that it will happen again. Pathology on the tissue reviewed (I got an emergency D&C and almost a hysterectomy) showed that it was not placental tissue. They aren't sure what happened.
So I am concerned for a number of reasons. First I have to make it past the miscarriage phase for my body. Then I have to control my BP and hope I don't get pre-e and then I have to pray that I don't hemmoraghe again. This will be our last baby as I will be getting my tubes tied. I feel very on edge and nervous.
My name is Jaime too!!! I wish you all the luck in the world! I know it's hard not to worry especially after all you've been through. Just try to keep positive. The first trimester is tough....I remember being scared too but I've made it to 22 weeks tomorrow yay! Keep us posted on your progress. We are here.
