Are you nervous this time around?

I am feeling a bit stressed. I am having nightmares about multiples and the NICU.

I'm sure I'll be nervous throughout the pregnancy like i was with Allison and especially now since I've had a m/c.
DS: 4
DD3: 9/19/14-10/19/14DS: 17months!

Mom to 4 beautiful kids! 3 on Earth and 1 in heaven. Our little girl, Matilda Hope had Down Syndrome. She was born with TMD, a disease that is like leukemia. She fought that and beat it. Then, she had liver failure. She beat that, too. On October 17, 2014 she had NEC, necrotizing enterocolitis. My baby went to Heaven on October 19, 2014. She lived exactly one month.

I'd be crazy if I weren't nervous. I just keep telling myself that I am doing everything I can and it's not up to me. I can handle whatever comes my way. At least that is what i keep telling mysekf. I guess we'll see when the time comes.

Despite my risks, I had an extremely uneventful pregnancy with Stella. I think I will be more laid back about it this time around since my last pregnancy went so well.

I imagine I will be somewhat of a nervous wreck I already warned my OB and my DH, friends, and family...thankfully they are all incredibly supportive. I will be switching perinatologists however but keeping my original OB.

Annalise is hoping to be a big sister on June 28, 2014. Forever missing her big brother, Matthew, stillborn on July 1, 2010.

im nervous about my outcome come the time of delivery. Ive had a hard time with the delieveries and coming out of them. Last time was especially scary because the medications wernt working to bring my blood pressure down and they went and told my hubby who was holding my brand new daughter who i hadnt even met to call family to get them to the hospital because they wernt sure if i was going to make it and they wanted them to get prepared to say goodbye to me.

My ob who delievered me reaslized that the first high risk ob was right in the fact that my daughter needed to be delivered at 32 weeks instead of holding me off for the 3 weeks. It could have ment me recovering better and not scaring my hubs. As for the pregnancy, I know it will go as smooth as it can, but as bad as it sounds id hope for a delivery at 32 weeks due to what pre e does to me. I know that ive had pre e 3 times very severely that i will most likely have it always. And with now having type 2 diabetes ive read that pre e goes hand in hand with it. So my doc told me if I want any more kids to have them now and be done by the time im 30 due to pre e getting worse with maternal age. So here i am ttc my 4th child.

Im scared, I have nightmares about not making it out alive and leaving my children behind. I hope that it never happens and ive doen alot in the past year to help my health and make myself a healthier person. Ive love 75lbs and im still loosing more. And ive changed my eating habits and i excersize now. So Im hoping that the loss in my weight (im now lighter than i was in all 3 of my pregnancies) will make everything in my pregnancy easier, and if not I will consider my next child to be my last even though ive always dreamed of a big family. But I never said to myself all my children had to be biologically mine, I may adopt chilren as i was adopted.

******Thank you Julka for my beautiful siggy******

I am nervous about the next pregnancy as well. I've had pre-e with both of my kids (severe with DD) and my chronic hypertension has gotten worse in the last year, so I would be shocked if I didn't wind up with it again. I try not to worry too much, because it's not good for the bp, but I am fully aware that if things go any worse than they did with DD then this will be our last child even though we wanted at least 4.

Thank you Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggy!

I'm feeling good this time around because everything went so smooth last time and the problems started at delivery. Next time around isn't a big deal because my delivery will be a scheduled c-section!

Thanks to Claire1979 for the terrific siggy!

I know when I get pregnant again, I will be a nervous wreck the entire pregnancy.
I have had 4 miscarriages, si I will never feel safe until I am holding my baby.
