  • Yes I know someone whos husband and ex wife had a kid and had complications and his new wife and him now want to have another kid but are scared for those reasons. What if it happens again? So I think it is normal. But just remember each pregnancie is different so this one could go very smoothly.

  • I nearly lost my 3rd daughter after birth due to a rare lung infection which was totally unexpected after a normal pregnancy. When we were ready to try for our fourth I was so scared. Just remember that each pregnancy is different. Unless there was a genetic reason for the complications you can't let yourself live in that fear and stress. I know its hard because I've been there and done that. Best of luck hon. Try not to stress too much!
