I have a 5 month old daughter and believe I may be pregnant again (am experiencing morning sickness and have completed two home tests which were both positive.)
I had a really difficult labor with my daughter. I had an alergic reation to Cyntocin and they nearly lost both of us. I got Pre-Eclampcia at the onset of labor. The baby went into the birth canel in a "solider" position and became stuck. I had an emergency casear.
Is my body healed enough to carry another child so soon? I keep asking myself this, however, I feel that to fall pregnant my body must be ready, right?
During pregnancy, I put on 30 kilos and, to date, I`ve only lost 15 and I`m scared of putting on another 30 kilos!!!!
I`m really scared about all of this happening again.
Thank you for your enquiry. It sounds as if you did have a traumatic time with your first pregnancy and birth but all pregnancies are different so you hopefully will have a better time. Your body should have healed well enough for this pregnancy but you need to have your blood tests and see your Gp for a check up to be sure. You can control your weight gain by trying to eat healthy foods and avoid sugary and fatty foods.
