Second Opinion Update

So, we had our second opinion appointment today, and I finally have some good news to report. This doctor is completly on board with us trying to get pregnant again, and after a lengthy conversation and review of medical history, he says that I would not be a patient that he would advise not to get pregnant. Granted he did say that he would be nervous during the pregnancy, but I would be highly monitored due to the fact that I would be considered a high risk pregnancy and he feels like we would be fine. He is not nervous about my health, but his concern would be the possiblity of an early delivery and having a preemie, but all pregnancies run that odd. He gave me a prescription for prenatal vitamins, and wants me to take some special folic acid supplement. He says that I would get extra appointments and such with him and the prenatal specialist starting at around the 20 week mark.

So, in summary...We would be a bundle of nerves, but he feels like we could be pregnant again and with extra monitoring should be able to have a successful pregnancy. We will start TTC in July or so...then, the fun/hard part starts!

Yay! If you can do it, then I can do it! I'd love to know more about your rupture. I don't know that much about mine. My doctor told me that he would not tell me to not get pregnant again, but if I was his daughter he wouldn't let me. I am so happy you get a second opinion! There are so many women in our support group that have had a PAR that I was holding out hope you could too! Did I say YAY yet? YAY!

I think the news is wonderful. I'm still a hesitant wreck over you doing it, but... when it comes down to it. It is your life. But if anything happens to you, I will personally have a vendetta against the second doctor, and probably damn myself in the process. Love you, sister. :)
