I want a BABY!!

We want a baby SO bad, but I am scared to death to be pregnant again! My daughter was born 10 weeks early 3 years ago, caused by preeclampsia and placental abruption. I'm scared of being on bed rest, I'm scared of a another nicu stay, even worse, what if I go into labor too early? Ugh! My doctor seems to think everything is daisies and roses and that another pregnancy would be completely fine. So I have no idea why I'm so scared! Do you think you'd have another after a preemie?

I don't know how I would feel about have another after all of that because I have never been in that situation. I want another even tho all of my pregnancies are high risk and a lot of work , but I love kids and I want at least one more .

my friend had a placenta abruption as well, at 34 weeks...she is pregnant again, 18 weeks in, and things are looking good.  She had a ton of concerns but from what her OBGYN has found, while you would be considered high risk, it's not that likely that it will happen again. Best of luck!

Thank you, that's reassuring. That's what my doctor said as well, but all of the "what ifs" just won't get out of my head!

they are even discussing letting her go into labor naturally and try a vaginal delivery (she had a partial tear at 34 weeks, was on bed rest for three weeks with the baby getting no nutrients/no weight gain so the lungs would develop, and when they induced her, the placenta completely detached, so an emergency c-section).  The stats for it occurring again are relatively low.  I ask her questions about it all the time and she seems pretty confident after taking with her doctor.
