Hi Jeanice,
I hear you. I also still birthed right before my little girls due date and am happy to report I got pregnant 6 months later and am now Mommy to a perfectly healthy 2.5 year old little boy.

I opted to have another C-section and it was performed 4 weeks early to try to ensure I didn't stillbirth again (no definitive reason was ever found although I had GD for both babies - it was much more controlled for the second). OB asked if I wanted to carry full-term as everything was progressing much better 2nd time around, but I couldn't take the risk and opted for the c-section anyway and everything went off without a hitch. Small visit to the NICU for some O2 levels but that's to be expected in a preemie.

I wish you luck, strength and much love during your pregnancy. PM if you'd like to talk. God Bless!
