Babies: 0 - 3 Months

Anyone terrified of getting pregnant again?

After my c-section and pre-e I have decided there is no way I am getting pregnant again.  When it's time to have another child, we have decided looking into adoption.

I am terrified of getting pregnant again.  I would never terminate if I did get pregnant, but it would be a very stressful situation.

Anyone else feel like this or are you open to getting pregnant again?

Re: Anyone terrified of getting pregnant again?

  • I can't wait! But I didn't have a lot of serious problems.

  • I want another child but I dont want to try probably until my dd is a year old or the beginning of next summer.  I get worried now though because I still feel uncomfortable where my incision is and Im terrified I will get pregnant too soon.  I can't imagine my stomach stretching again this soon :)
  • anytime soon, yes, ever again, no.

  • Absolutely terrified. PPD has scared the bejeebus out of me. If I get pregnant I'll just deal with it though. I'm having (protected) sex so I know it is always a possibility.

  • I felt the same way at first, there was no way I would even think about it.  Now, I'm willing to allow myself think about it and will do it again, but I definitely want to wait at least 2 years.

  • I'm pretty terrified too but I have gotten more used to the idea. Before being pregnant I thought I wanted 3 or 4 kids. After a difficult pregnancy and horrible birth experience I told my DH I was done having children! 3 months later I wouldn't say I have forgotten the pain, but I see more how much it was worth it and will go through it again in a few years. I understand how you're feeling and I come from a family with adoptions and I think it's a great thing to do!?
  • I am terrified too... I don't want to get pg for about 3 years.
  • Nope. Can't wait!! If I had some help I'd do it again NOW.

    =)

  • I want to do it again and I had a complicated delivery.  Not anytime soon for sure.  Give yourself a few weeks to recover and maybe you will change your mind!

  • please, you are only 2 weeks PP! I'm just now starting to feel like I wouldn't totally die if I had another kid at some point. And the risk of Pre-E goes down with 2nd pgs. You don't have to decide anything any time soon! Wait a year atleast and see how you feel then!

    I still want 1 more but in like 2+ years. 

     

  • nope!  I could be pregnant 25 more times.  I am just concerned that the next time won't go as smooth and be as easy, but I can't wait to find out.

  • We'll be waiting awhile, but I definitely want to do it again. I had a great pregnancy and birth though, I can understand why you're feeling you don't want to do it again.

  • Yes, even though I had a great pregnancy and a textbook delivery. I'm scared to have sex! Honestly I would secretly LOVE to get pregnant again right away....its financial reasons that are making us wait to TTC #2.

  • I had pre-term labor that resulted in a hospital stay and a little bit of bedrest but I can't wait to get pregnant again...like tomorrow...lol
  • Yup.. I'm sure I will feel differently in 2-3 years but right now, I'm not sure I want to carry another child or just adopt.  I'm definitely leaning towards adoption at this point.
  • I fell the same way. When DD was a week old I told DH that I want 4 more. Then I ask if we could start trying when she's a year old.

  • My pregnancy wasn't the easiest (bad morning sickness, bad swelling, major stress about something going wrong), labor was ok (no complications) but really painful when my epi was wearing off... however I can't imagine not doing it again at least once, maybe twice.

    Ditto this exactly. I had pre-e and an emergency c/s where I had to be put under general anesthesia b/c my blood wasn't clotting. So I had my share of complications. At 2 weeks pp there was no way I was thinking of having another kid. You're just so hormonal and still recovering from what you went through. But, a couple of weeks ago I started missing being pregnant and thinking how great it would be to do it all again!

    We need to wait at least a little while b/c I'm finishing up my PhD. And there's no way to do that with 2 babies. But once I'm finished an in a job situation, we will be back on the baby bandwagon. :)

  • I NEVER EVER NEVER EVER EVER EVER want to be pregnant again. EVER! And I had lots of problems so that's probably why.

    I hope you both are right...but at this point I don't see it happening.  I am just thankful DH is so open to adoption because I do want at least one more LO and it's nice knowing I can do that even if I don't get pregnant again.

  • I would be scared if we got pregnant right now only because I have already had 2 c-sections, each due to Pre-E. Baby 1 was born at 38w and baby 2 was born at 35w5d...are we noticing a downward trend here?

    My Dr. advised me to wait at least a year to insure that my uterus is strong enough to carry a baby to term and to give me time to get some weight off because women who are over weight have a highter occurance of pre-e.

    Other then that, I could get pregnant right now and not worry about it at all.

    I had a dream last night that I was pregnant and it was a boy! After having 2 girls, we have to try one more time to get that boy but it just cant be right now.

  • I too had a c-section due to pre-e. The only part I dread re-living is the epidural. My anesthesiologist did it wrong the first time and I had the worst pain shoot down the right side of my back and leg. I sucked at being pregnant, I complained a lot lol
  • God yes!! I just dont know if I'm emotionally ready to get on that roller coaster ride just yet again.  At the moment I feel like I need at least 2yrs before getting pregnant.  My pregnancy was easy for the most part, but toward the end that all changed. Plus it has been a little hard since our families are so far away, we have no one to help us out...except for when they visit.

  •  I had a rough pregnancy and then a really rough delivery.  (Although I was able to go vaginal even though we cut it really close)  For the first two weeks, I cried everytime I thought about the delivery room.  Now not as much.  I think it gets easier every day.  Give yourself some time to heal.  People keep saying (promising) every pregnancy is different.  Good luck.

  • Yup, the thought sends chills down my spine. I got REALLY sick after LO, I had an infected uterus that turned into Sepsis and ended up in the hospital for a week two weeks after Avery was born. Not to mention 36 hours of labor. I want another baby (I think, some days I don't) but the process of L&D scares the crap out of me. Definitely waiting at least 2 years though.
  • Just terrified to get pg again soon. I had GD so that wasn't fun but otherwise the pg was good. I'm also afraid of juggling two kids or chasing after one while pg with the other.

  • Aside from the terrible acne and morning sickness, I'm open to getting pregnant again. We'll probably start trying as soon as the doc says ok

  • I'm terrified of getting pregnant again before I am ready for another one.  Right now I am definitely not ready.
