I'm 6.5 months pregnant with baby #7. The first 4 were with a midwife and the last 2 my husband and I caught. I developed chronic hypertension about 2 years ago. I have a CNM who I'm getting my medication from and who thinks I'm coming into the hospital for the birth. BUT...... I just read this article about Chronic and Gestational Hypertension at http://www.gynob.com/htiup.htm
Now I'm thinking...."IF" I do not develop eclampsia (which I never have had any symptoms with any other children and do not now) WHY NOT HAVE MY BABY at home?
My midwife who caught the first 4 said she will catch baby #7 as long as I do not develop symptoms and my BP stays low (it is a constant 135/60 am and pm for the last 4 months.)
Do any ladies here have some thoughts you'd like to share? :)
