How do you start preparing tax for no. 2?
Hi I just wondered if anyone is thinking of tyc a second baby after a traumatic first birth? How have you coped or planned if you have already done it? I had a traumatic end to my pregnancy as I developed obstetric cholestasis which puts you at risk of several things but most worryingly stillbirth. I was itching horrendously and even in my sleep scratching myself to pieces for about. 3 weeks getting next to no sleep. I felt very unwell and vulnerable and when finally diagnosed it was a shock. I was diagnosed at 39 weeks so was induced and he labour was back to back position for 36 hours. In the end bubba got stuck after 3 hours of pushing and so we went straight to caesarean. I was so exhausted and poorly the first few weeks were hell and we were in hospital for 5 days. Luckily he was perbirth it it took me a week or 2 to be able to start bonding as I didn't even know where I was. I was delirious. Anyway oc has a high recurrence rate so the consultant told me I would get it again. I'd like another baby but not sure I can face the build up, the extra bloods, scans and constant worry that every itch is oc. Any advice really welcome Xx
