PostSubject: My baby has arrived   Thu 15 Dec 2011, 9:25 am

I have now had my baby, on the 27th of November, born at 39+4 weeks. It was an assisted delivery. After being in labour for almost 24 hours, and having to have my waters broken, I had to have a forceps delivery, as my baby didn't want to come out with me just pushing. Naturally, got tears, so now recovering from the stiches and a hemroid due to pushing, but a much better recovery than I had from my c-section. I am so happy that I have taken this pregnancy full term, and have been able to bring a baby home with me, a baby that is now doing so well. However, during labour, I did develop pre eclampsia again... So, I guess this is it for me. I have always wanted two children, and now I have the most wonderful two children. Also, my age is a concern, as next year I will turn 40, guess I had already decided this pregnancy would be the last for me. But now, that I have developed pre eclampsia once more, I think it's natures way of telling me enough is enough. My first boy was born at 27 weeks due to HELLP sydrome, and my secong boy was born full term but still with pre eclampsia. I consider myself lucky that the pre eclampsia didn't raise it's ugly head until the end and has allowed me to enjoy my pregnancy all the way to the end. Also, very lucky to have such amazing children.
Thank you everyone for reading.

Huge Congratulations to you and the new addition to your family!

Sorry to hear PE rose its grotty head again, but it does sound as though little ones arrival was much more in your control than your last pregnancy.

Wishing you every happiness and good health together.

Kindest Wishes

Every Woman is entitled to understand what happened in her pregnancy when pre eclampsia strikes. I hope to be able to support that process.
