PostSubject: Hope in 2nd pregnancy   Hope in 2nd pregnancy EmptyMon 02 Jun 2008, 10:15 am

Hi everyone

I had my Tamsin in 2003 born at 28 weeks emergency c-section due to severe PE. After 2 months in hospital she came home absolutely fine and is now a gorgeous 4 year old!!

I am currently pregnant! I'm 35 weeks pregnant!! With no signs of PE and have been told by my consultant that I can have a spontaenous VBAC (Vaginal Birth after Caesarian).
I'm having another little girl who on the scan at 34 weeks is pretty big!

I will keep you posted, but i cannot express how different this preganancy has been compared to last time. I'm still guarding my thoughts and feelings, just in case, and will surely have an emotional episode when she arrives, but there is hope!!!

PostSubject: is it about to go wonky??   Hope in 2nd pregnancy EmptyWed 11 Jun 2008, 7:41 pm

Hi everyone

Now 36+ (yeah)

BUT over weekend had pains in my rib cage just on the right hand side, and also in my lower back kidney area, plus headaches.
So went up the hosp on monday. Everything ok, trace of protein in urine and they think its just ligaments but not sure Rolling Eyes . Also sent urine off for possible water infection come back today.

So went up today BP fine, another trace in urine but this time also urine from monday comes back saying increased cells, but no one knows what this means, pale so have given yet another sample and have to go back on Friday. Friday being Friday 13th Twisted Evil (not that i'm supersticious - much)

So feeling somewhat nervous that it may be about to go a bit wonky. Hopefully update on Friday after been to day unit but unsure. I just have a feeling they will ask me to stay for obs and then will end up staying put till baby comes. Dunno why - just have a feeling.

Once get to Sunday will be 37 weeks and officially full term. Fingers crossed!! xxxx

sorry to sound paranoid!!

Hi Emma
Samantha panicked 2 weeks ago having trace protien in her wee also + in something else but forgot what the word is but consultant said probarbly some muck while weeing Samantha was not impressed ( I was laughing) she thought he meant she was not clean lol! but this week all is clear and Sam is being induced on the 23rd cheers everything else is fine bp fine has still lost all her weight and still has not put any back on she will weigh less than when she started her pregnancy

good luck to you and I hope everything goes well at least they are looking after you

Take care

Ingrid xx

Hi Emma & Ingrid,

Ingrid I am so happy to hear Sam is doing well. I look forward to hearing of a new arrival on the 24th! I did laugh though at the image you created in my mind at her thoughts of the doctor describing a possible contamination!!!!

Emma, follow your instincts. It is really hard when things start to go wonky to stay 'intact'. Is it possible for you to have some dipsticks so that you can monitor yourself at home? It might just offer you a little more reassurance at this point? You know yourself when something isnt right, better than the first time around anyway and this is your safety net. If you are not happy - keep banging the door until someone listens. Dont worry about feeling daft, as I have said to women before, if your baby was actually here and potentially unwell, would you allow yourself to be fobbed off then?
I suspect not. So what is the difference that s/he isnt actually born yet?

I hope that PE doesnt raise its head again & that you will get the birth plan you dream of and baby can nestle safely in your arms where s/he belongs.

Let me know if I can help.

Warmest Wishes
Liz

Dear Emma, hope Friday 13th went OK for you - look forward to hearing an update soon.
Will be looking out for your news & keeping everything crossed for you.
Liz is right (as always) - go with your instincts & don't take no for an answer until you're happy.
Lots of love

Hi Emma,

Glad to hear you & baby are still doing well, despite the headaches & BP misbehaving. Have they said anything about inducing you?

Hi too, to Ingrid.
Thinking of you, Sam & Brianna today.
I hope Sams induction & grandsons birth go smoothly.

Best Wishes
Liz
