Pregnancy after Premmie Baby

November 28, 2008 1 Comment »

Just a bit of background info for everyone. My first bub, Brendan was born in Feb 2007 at 30 weeks, due to PPROM at 28 weeks. In Nov 2007 I suffered a miscarriage at 17+1 weeks.

In September 2008 we stared trying for our second child. I got my BFP on the 12/11/2008, 3 months after we started trying. I’m so happy and relieved. I haven’t had much m/s only a few very mild feelings. Mostly I am tired. Today I am 7+1 weeks pregnant. There is no word that can accurately describe how I am feeling about the possibility of another prem, scared doesn’t even come close. I had my first Dr’s appointment on Wed 26/11/08, referral has been done and sent to KEMH. My first u/s will be done at 12 weeks. I cannot wait to see my little bubble.

Things I’d like to do different this time:

  • Make sure I am always feeling reassured
  • Trust my instinct and follow what my head/heart is telling me
  • Be more informed about what tests they are doing, what they are for ect, I will NOT be a pin cushion
  • Relax and take things easy
  • Ask for help when I need it
  • Make it to at least 36 weeks
  • Hold my baby immediately after birth
  • Take my baby home with me!!

Until next update, take care 🙂
