I Had Are-eclampsia Twice
I had been put on bedrest at 6mos. gestation with my first pregnancy due to pre-eclampsia. I also had gestational diabetes that was controlled with diet. My beautiful and perfect first baby was born three weeks early on a Tuesday by c-section after labor was induced on Sunday nite and did not progress. The surgery and recovery was bad, but not as bad as I thought it was going to be. Five months later, I was pregnant again. At six months gestation, on bedrest again with pre-eclampsia again. This time, my breathtaking, sweet & snuggly little person was taken by c-section four weeks early. Fortunately, everyone is fine. I look at my teenage daughters, now both taller than me, and am amazed that they started life so tiny and frail looking. By the way, after c-section number two, I had my tubes tied.
