I had pre e with my first baby, diagnosed at 32 weeks by my midwives, transferred to an OB and put on bedrest. It turned into mild HELLP by the time I spontaneously delivered at 38 weeks. I think I was more concerned than the doctors were, they kept sending me home even though my blood pressure was 180 over 110 and my baby was taking longer to pass the NST.
At one point my feet swelled up so big they turned blueish so dh took me to the ER, they made me sit in the waiting room for 4 hours before they finally sent me up to L&D! They just sent me home to lay on my left side.
I think they were playing with fire. Anyhow, it all turned out ok, I had an unmed vaginal birth to a healthy baby. He was born when I was 22. My 2nd baby I had a homebirth! I went right to my due date and even though I had to see an OB for a consult due to slightly elevated bp (140 over 90) and swelling, he was great and okayed me for a homebirth!! I was 24. I will say I had NO ms at all with my 2nd and therefore was able to eat a much healthier diet- lots of protien, which could have made a difference. When I was pg with my third I was 28 and I went over my due date by a few days, also swelled a lot again and my bp went up a bit too high (but ONLY at appointments!), I had no other markers for pre e, but my midwife sent me for a NST and the OB on floor decided I had pre e, despite my tests being fine, called my midwife and cancelled my homebirth, then informed me I would be induced in 3 days.
But he said he would let my midwives catch.
Midwife said her hands were tied, I went into labor on my own that night and had no choice but to meet them at the hospital for the birth or do an unplanned UC. It was great, for a hospital birth, but I am still bitter that my homebirth was stolen from me at the last minute.
But my point is, I was able to have 2 healthy pregnancies after my first baby, my 2nd and 3rd babies were incredibly healthy at birth, no problems, my recovery was way better than my first birth as well. Best of luck to you.
