I have an 8 month old little girl who I gave birth to December 10, 2009. I recently just found out that I am pregnant again :( I have so many mixed feelings about this. I am nervous because when I was giving birth to my little girl her heart stopped and I almost lost her and I started hemorrhaging and almost died. I guess I am just scared of how this pregnancy and delivery will go. Any advice would be great. I just need to know if I'm wrong for having mixed emotions how being pregnant again this soon.
mixed fealings are totaly normal i had my daughter in july of 2008 i had a great pregnancy but when i had her i had a 4th degree tear that never healed correctly, so when my husband and i decided to try again end of last year i wasnt scared at all i was totaly excited after having a easy pregnancy and healthy baby girl, well at 20 weeks we had the normal ultrasound done and found out we were having a boy and were so excited to told everyone, untill the doc called and we found out he has 3 seprate congenatal heart defects and he will have to undergo open heart surgery at only a few days old and have to have the surgery repeated about every 5 years. I am curently 4 weeks away from having him and will admit it am going nuts. so i totaly understand, it is very normal to be scared but remember every baby every pregnancy and every delivery are different your new little one might come with no problems at all, happy healthy kickin and screamin, sorry i kinda rambled but it will all be ok.
I am so sorry about your little boy. I couldn't imagine how hard that would be. I will keep him in my thoughts as well as you and your family. And I hope this pregnany with my little one is diffrent with no problems! :) Just try and keep positive. ( I don't know if you believe in God or not) but he is the only answer to these kind of situations.
Every pregnancy and delivery is different. Just keep communicating your fears and concerns with your doctor and develop a plan for how your labor and delivery will go. There may be ways you can avoid such a traumatic labor and delivery this time. Congratulations on your new pregnancy and welcome to Strong Moms.
I am on my third pregnancy, each one has been very different. I am very miserable this pregnancy. I have gave birth naturally 2 times, and more scared this time than any. Don't know why! I ask more questions this time than I have in the past. Good luck to the new moms!!
