Pregnancy Complications and Wants to Have Another Baby

I had very serious complications after my 3rd pregnancy. I had a 6 hour c-section and went into DIC and then had blood clots in my lungs. This is the first child for my husband. We really want more children. I am not sure if I should have another child. Any opinions or stories of your own complicated deliveries are greatly appriciated. I am not really looking for advice more than positive outcomes from other people. I am going to have a doctors opinion before I make a decision.

Advice for Bedrest?

Does anyone have any good tips for dealing with a (hopefully) long stretch of bedrest? I was in the hospital for a while and am now home and need to make things a little easier on myself and keep busy.

What to Do About Depression???

Hi, My husband has always been moody. I just took it to be in his nature. Now that we have kids, however, he gets into these "moods" much more often, sometimes twice a week, if they only last a day or so. Sometimes they last a whole week and more! And I HATE it! I don't know what to do. He is not abusive, though sometimes can be mean. He tends to just be quiet and not say anything. I have to take care of the kids myself, as he does not want to be involved when he's in a mood. It's to the point where my soon to be three-year-old...

High Risk Pregnancy

I recently found out that I'm almost 10 weeks pregnant. When I went to the doctor he advised that normally 35 years and older are considered to be high risk. I know older women have happy healthy babies all the time & I have been reading up alot of high risk pregnancies. Just wanted to get some input from other moms out there to kinda put my mind at ease & find out of any possible complications anyone may have endured. I know I am probably making myself crazy for nothing but any input or advice would help make me not be such a worry wart....

Is This a Miscarriage?

I suddenly had a gush of blood today and have been bleeding off and on, but no clots. I am somewhere around week 9-10 and I also have had lots of abdominal pain and a sharp pain right in the middle there. This is Sunday, and I am avoiding the ER at all costs (I hate it) , so I am going to schedule my first appointment to be checked tomorrow and go asap to see what is going on. Any one else who had a miscarriage and experienced pain. This would be my third child, but I have never bled during my previous 2 pregnancies. I have had severe...

Partial Molar Pregnancy

During my one week check up with my doctor after having a D and C, I was told the pregnancy I had was anything but normal. That I had a partial molar pregnancy. I would like to hear from anyone having this same experience. Because from what I've been told there's a possibility this can turn into a particular disease, and in turn cancer. I want to learn everything I can, because I plan to fight.

No Morning Sickness...

Not that I'm complaining, but I'm 7 weeks along and still no sign of morning sickness. I had terrible morning sickness during the 1st trimester of my 1st pregnancy, and it feels strange to feel so healthy right now. Anybody had morning sickness make its debut after 7 weeks? Or might I just be lucky enough not to get it at all?

Information on Pre-term Labor the Second Time Around

We are in the process of thinking about having another child. With my son I went into pre-term labor at 28 weeks. Since he was fine they left him but for 10 weeks it was several trips to the hospital, sometimes a couple of times a week, to get shots to stall off labor. My son was finally born at 38 weeks and he was healthy! After several tests my Dr. did not know why my body went into labor so early. I was wondering if any of you were able to have a "normal" pregnancy after going into pre-term labor with a previous child?

Spotting/light Bleeding During Pregnancy

I just wrote a post earlier about being 5 weeks pregnant and not having tender and sore breasts. A couple hours ago I experienced some spotting then turned into light bleeding. The blood is light red so far and I am afraid it might get heavier. Is this a sign of complication or miscarriage? I am going to the doc tomorrow but I can't sleep thinking what could possibly be wrong. I never spotted or bled with my first pregnancy so I am very anxious to know what is going on. I can't help but put one and one together with having no pregnancy...

Severely Anxious All the Time About My Children's Safety

hello lovely mamas, I'm in desperate need of advice; first I want to say that I don't read news, but on the rare occasion that I do there's ALWAYS a horror story about a child being , abducted, murdered etc. I get instantly paranoid about my girls safety; I have 3 daughters and I cannot tell you how many nightmares I've had about them being lost, abducted or killed and the anxiety I experience when my oldest goes to school. I feel awful posting this and I'm not even sure if I should post here, but this is the only parenting website I...
