PostSubject: Decided to TTC baby number 3    Thu 26 Aug 2010, 6:18 pm

Ok so after alot of fighting with my mind and heart, we (my husband and i) have finally decided to TTC concieve baby number 3.

I wont lie and say that im not scared because i am VERY scared. But i had a positive discussion with a specialist back in June and she said i had a 40% chance of developing it and with the help of aspirin it will come down to 25%.

Ive also been recomended to take Calcium (she gave me the name but cant remember). Is there anything else i can take to help me? I didnt take aspirin or calcium in both my pregs so this will be new to me. I was also in full time work and im not doing that anymore so i will be resting more. Both my children will be in full time school too so all i have to do is cook lol.
Is there anything else i can do?

Im so nervous but excited at the same time!

Anyone else TTC baby number 2 or 3??? How are you feeling?

Good luck! I'm 22 + 3 weeks now. I'm taking aspirin and daily clexane injections ( i've got sticky blood). No signs of PE so far. Also taking daily folic acid with added vit C & D recommended by the midwive.

Look forward to hearing some good news. XXXX

Hi

Really pleased you have decided to try again - I was hoping you would as I don't think PE should dictate our choices!! I am hoping that aspirin and calcium will prove to be the winning combination - only this week there was a report on tv saying how aspirin should be prescribed to all pregnant women with high BP to stop PE developing. At least this time you have the knowledge and the expertise to guide you through a pregnancy. Looking forward to hearing you're pregnant soon!

P.s got you text yesterday - so sorry I didn't reply I spent ages in hospital with yesterday with my little girl and they quite strict about phones etc so let me know if you want to chat again xxx

Thank you everyone for the positive support. Im not getting alot of positive support from my family right now... Sad

We started out 1st session of "TTC" and it felt hillarious...i couldnt stop laughing the whole time. However i cant help but worry about my BP, usually its 118/70 ish and then since last week it has been 130/89 even gone up to 135/92 Crying or Very sad I dont know whats going on. It wasnt just a one off but its been consistantly like that whenever i check it. I went to the doctors and they said my BP was fine (i forgot to ask him what it was). Im a little worried about that right now... The BP monitor is what ive been using since i was pregnant with my daughter.

Ingrid, did samantha take Pregnacare as well as separate doses of folic acid? Ive asked my husband to get me pregnacare but i dont know if i should start taking it now (while im TTC) or after i find out im pregnant...????

Im so nervous, so scared...

Thanks guys. Im going to be on here ALOT alot for advice... I need you all Smile

At least you have done your homework on a third pregnancy - you have consulted the experts and are more informed than before so I'm confident it'll be third time lucky for a long and uneventful pregnancy xxx
