I really want to have a fouth....would be the last! My first pregnancy was induced early due to preeclampsia (34 wks), second preg was good went to 39 wks, third preg was an emergeny c-section due to liver and kidney failure and HELLP syndrome. Through blood work I have no affects of the complications. I really want one more and I just know in my heart everything would be alright. Would I be dumb to attempt another pregnancy? I recently had a miscarriage also (haven't had a regular cycle yet) think this was a sign to stop??Answer Question

I don't believe in signs. If you want another child, go for it. I would definitely recommend finding an excellent high-risk OB. I was already high risk with my first pregnancy, and I developed HELLP Syndrome at 24 weeks. My little John Michael had to be delivered by emergency vertical c-section, and he passed away in my arms after 3 days in the NICU. My second pregnancy was ectopic, and I lost my right fallopian tube in addition to the baby. I was on daily blood thinner injections and off of work for my third pregnancy, and I now have a healthy, beautiful 9 month old son. There are always risks to pregnancy, and some of us face more than others. If you find a good high-risk OB, s/he can evaluate your risks and formulate a care plan to minimize those risks as much as possible.
