I was born at 24 weeks..had breathing problems and a heart murmur..but thats seems to be cleared. Only Big issue i have right now is heart palpitations due to severe hypochondria/general anxiety.
I know things can happen to anyone..even full term women but the fact that i was born premature, I keep thinking i have a AVM..which is weak vessels in the brain(technically anyone can be born with these and not know until it bursts)...soo im worried i secretly have this and I will get pregnant one day..one of these vessels will burst and i will have a stroke and die.
The reason im so hung up on this stroke thing..because I heard of someone..perfectly healthy at 7 months pregnant died of a stroke..she went to hospital for placental tear..developed a severe headache..they gave her a narcotic and she had stroke and died, doctors have no idea why a healthy person like her had a stroke while pregnant..there were no warning signs except when she developed a headache/numbness then shortness of breathe...so now i have convinced myself that this will happen to me and its sad because i want a baby in 4 years ill be 28..almost 29...
I have talked to my boyfriend and he says i should try because he wants a baby eventually with me but im terrified and im worried im going to choke when the time comes..is it shelfish to marry someone knowing that you may not beable to give them a child like they want? ..i mean i warned him but all he keeps saying i gotta try and if i don't then he will have to find someone else that wants the same..I told him its not that i do not want a baby..im dying to have a baby..love kids. I know deep down even though im beyond terrified then most first moms to be..i will not beable to not have a baby because i feel like i was born to be a mom....hopefully alive and to see my babies grow up :/
ps. Can i ask for brain scans/tests..since i was born premature before i try to concieve?
