I'll just say I am very lucky to be alive. I gave birth a little over a month ago. My baby is a preemie, but now he is home doing wonderful. I am grateful for his life every moment.
I really wanted to give him a sibling in the future. But after all the complications, I am scared to try again and go through what I went again. I just want to be able to be healthy to take care of my beautiful family.
Did you dare to get pregnant again after a challenging first experience?
What made you try again?

aww I completely understand how you feel , dd was born at barley 34 weeks and was in the nicu for awhile. It really made me feel like I didn't want to risk it again etc etc.but now dd is a very energetic HEALTHY one year old, and honestly I wanted another when she was 10m so here I am 6 weeks pregnant! lol congratulations on your little baby and once you see him grow and interact im sure you will consider another (:

I had my dd at 24 Wks 1lb 7oz . The pregrancy was fine until I went into labor. I am currently pregnant due in jan. Been a couple complications but all been taking care of :) as today I am 25 Wks! And still going.

Dd and this baby will be almost 5yrs apart. It took us awhile to be ok ttc . And go threw another preg.
GL hon!!! Everything will work out

With my first I was in a bad car accident at 5 months. I had awful morning sickness for months. like laying in the bathtub with the shower going throwing up several times a day. At 7 months I contracted E. coli and was hospitalized for a while. I was induced due to high BP. Thankfully even though I was a complete mess dd was totally fine. This time has been a breeze... I'm due nov. 23rd. The thought of another pregnancy was sooo not appealing to me and it took me a while to be ok with it. Dd1 is 5 1/2 now.
