My husband and i are very seriousily concidering having another baby. I have 2 children now. My son(almost 10) was born at 38wks weighing 9lbs and 21 in. My daughter(16mos old) was born at 34wks weighing 6.4lbs and 19 in. I had gestational diabetes with my second baby, and my doc thinks i als o ended up with it at the end of my first pregnancy, after they did the testing. I'm not so sure on that, and i my husband is 6'4 and weighed almost 11lbs at birth. I am only 5'2 and weighed 6.5lbs when i was born. Either way, i had bleeding issues eary on with my daughter as the placenta was quite low. it did move up and out of the way. I would like to know if you had a premie and then went full term? What was age difference between the 2? Was the next one early? How big? Did they require special nursery time? I'm trying to get a good base as to how we are going to decide on doing this. My doc says go for it. She think i would likely not go 40wks, but that it would be born likely before my son was and after my daughter was. I was also told she thinks i have a 90% chance of getting the gestational diabetes again. Did you have this issue? did it follow all other pregnancies? Thanks for your help and sharing your experiences!
