Ready to have another baby but..

Krystal - posted on 10/28/2011 ( 3 moms have responded )




With my last child I had a problem after delivery where my uterus came out. The dr got it back into place and told me another child was risky but not impossible. My daughter is now 2 and I still feel like our family could use one more baby. My husband has agreed to it knowing we will need to be very careful and watch everything I do. My mother told me its a silly idea, and on the negative side said to make sure I have something lined up in case my husband becomes a single parent.
Currently I have an IUD and I don't have the appointment with my OB till late Dec to get it removed/talk to the dr. Does anyone have any input or knowledge on this?

talk to your doctor about the risks and then discuss them wtih your husband. Your mom is scared. How would you feel if your baby wanted to do something that would be that high risk? If you guys still feel you want another baby then go for it! But on one thing i do agree with your mom make sure everything is in order just in case something happens. be optimistic that everything is going to go well, that you and baby will be good, and monitor yourself carefully. it was slightly risky for me to get pregnant again, as there's a chance that I may have to have a hysterectomy afterwards. When i had my daughter I haemorrhaged afterwards and had to have surgery, and a blood transfusion. There's a chance the same thing could happen this time, and that things might not go as well as they did last time. but I'm positive, i'm excited to be pregnant again and I keep telling myself this is going to be a good pregnancy(it was really hard with my daughter). this might possibly be our last baby and I'm ok with that. What matters is that you and your hubby are comfortable with your decision.

there is a risk. my sister had this issue and what happened with her second was it end being her last pregnancy because of complications the uterus could not be saved a second time.
but that was the only main issue. otherwise she was just out on bedrest near the end to help prevent early labor issues and her daughter was fine. healthy and normal. she said it was worth it.
good luck!

i dont have any knowlegde about ur medical situation but i can offer you my opinion. i say if u really wanna have another baby and ur hubby agreed to it then go for it. your mom is just scared thats why shes trying to scare u because she doesnt wanna loose you but u gotta do whats right for you. no matter what there is always a risk for every woman to have somehting go wrong with a pregnancy but if its what u want then do it :) good luck
