I had Pre-elamsia which went undiagnosed during my pregnancy. Now knowing all the signs it was VERY clear I had severe pre-elamspia. So I have NO clue how the Dr.'s missed it. When I was 36 weeks pregnant I began having seizures. I was rushed to the hospital was put on life support and had an emergency C-section. None of this I remember. They told me later they honestly didn't think I was going to make it. They said my blood pressure was so high at that point people usually have a stroke end up in a coma or they die. They were very surprised when I came through. My daughter is now almost 14 months old. We were planing on waiting to have another one when she was older due to financially not being able to take care of another one. But my husband was just promoted and is now making more then enough money. Were getting ready to move into our own house at the end of next month. We were thinking of trying for another one after we have moved in and our settled. Obviously I will be going to the Dr. and discuss everything and if its even safe. But I am very scared and afraid that I would be putting to much at risk to have another baby. I know that we now know at least what to look for and I would be monitored far more closely. but I cant help but be worried. So I was wondering if anyone had any thing similar happen and have had or our considering having another baby?
