DH and I are ready for #2 - but since I was cut vertically and large to get DD out I have a very high rupture risk - at DD's birth the Perinatologist warned us that a c-section like the one I needed would mean never being able to have chidren again because of the rupture risk etc. - my own OB/GYN - had a different opinion - he told me that I could wait 2 years, that I would be considered high risk, he would monitor me closely and I would deliver early by c-section again and that the risk of rupture was higher but not enough to keep me from trying again - it hasnt been the two years but we didnt ask any questions or anything at the time - we were more concerned with saving THAT baby.... so now we want answers to a million questions - I'm nervous. We definitely want to try again but I need to know the answer to the one question he wont be able to answer .... when you say early... how early???? I dont want to make another baby go through what DD went through... I know that a NICU stay is a NICU stay and would never belittle any of our struggles but 117 days in the NICU with DD was a lot to deal with. If I knew that the next would make it to 34 weeks or at least close I feel like thats something I can live with - but what if I cant carry that long? what if I cant make it out of my second tri??? Im going in today to be examined and talk about my next pregnancy - I'm nervous... If you all KNEW that the next pregnancy would be a preemie would you still do it?
