View Full Version : Risking It Again
:wave: Hi Mums of Premmie Bubs, just thought I'd start another thread. We have gone through the rollercoaster of three premature births. Our last, sadly passed away after 48hours. What wonderful efforts Dr Donovan from RBWH did to save our precious angel. We have been trying for Number 4 for 5 months, we are facing a high risk pregnancy, we know that. What an amazing feeling it would be to actually buy size 00 clothes for our new arrival instead of 00000 or is it going to be another journey of ups and downs in the NICU. Am here for a chat anyway ladies, next Thursday, hopefully will be advising you that I did a test and it is a BFP.:fingerscrossed:
I wish you all the luck! :fingerscrossed:
I wish you luck too!
But I don't know any baby that is born into size 00...lol! that would be a biggin! he he he! My lil girl was 9lb 2oz... ouch! and fit in 0000....
I really hope everything goes well for you.
Can I ask if they know why you give birth so early?
I just noticed you mentioned Dr Donovan from the RBWH, he was Luka's paediatrician too, what a lovely caring man he is. I am glad you had someone so wonderful looking after you and your little angel.
Good luck in the future.
best of luck!!!!!!
Sorry to hear about your little angel. I wish you well for your next little bub - may he or she stay put for at least 38 weeks.:hugs:
Btw, I think you are incredibly brave.
Hi Lissylou, I just wanted to say that it can happen!
I was born at 26wks , my brother at 30wks (he's now 21), other brother at 32wks (little angel here for 8 days) and then.... my sister was born 4 days early, at 7lb 6oz!! Mum always said that she looked so funny, being so big and pink!!
Best of luck!
Thanks everyone for your thoughts. To answer a couple of questions, Placenta Abruption is to blame for their early arrivals! However have some treatment options in place should it loom its horrible head again.:yes:
Dr Donovan, I sat and watched him and his team work for 2.5hours doing everything to save our little girl. For those out of Queensland, he works out of the Royal Brisbane and Womens Hospital. Oh, I just wish she pulled through, I keep picking her picture up and looking at her, particularly with Mothers' Day approaching.
Gee, we have had some mixed opinions on having another child after a loss. Sick of it, whilst I appreciate peoples concern, we believe it will be a positive thing and aren't trying to dwell on the negative.:thumbsup:
I just wanted to say good luck with everything. I've have had two premmie babies, one born at 35 weeks for no reason, and this one at 34 weeks, no confirmed reason. Although I haven't lost a child, I know what it's like to go through having a premmie (twice). So you are a braver woman then me. Scott and I have decided not to have anymore, but then in 5 years time I'll probably forget how hard it is and be watching my beautiful boys and wonder why we wouldn't want more :)
:wave: Thanks, I'm glad your newest addition is doing well. Congratulations;)
I wish you lots of "baby dust" in your quest for another baby. We lost our first baby at 19wk 3d and Harriet decided to arrive at 36wks. We too have a gorgeous OB here in Newcastle who knew exactly what to say and do for us to bring Harriet home safely. We are trying to fall pregnant again as well. I know what you mean about mixed reactions. Some people keep saying that it is too soon, that Harriet is only 9mths and we only had 4mths between Harriet and the first but I think that as long you, your DH and children are happy and filled with love, everything will be fine. :fingerscrossed: For your family and for mine - may we both get lots of baby wishes over the next few months.
I hope all goes well and that your next bub stays put as long as you want it to! As long as you guys do what feels right I think your making the right choices!
