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...

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?

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...
