I had my third baby (and first UC) in 2009 and I haven't been around here too much sense he was about six months old. I just found out two days ago I'm pregnant again, so I'm back to the forums! I used to be know here as "HennyPenny" but I've made a lot of changes in my personal life so I figured it would be nice to have a fresh username to go along with it! :)

 

I don't know if I'm going to UC this time or not because honestly I haven't thought much about it yet. I'm still in shock about being pregnant. It was VERY unexpected!

 

I adored my UC last time, but this time around I'm hoping for some midwifery care during my pregnancy so I don't have to handle my HG alone again. That was really hard because there were times I was too sick to think for myself and I think it was a bit dangerous. I was really scared and didn't know who to go to for help aside from a sterile cold hospital with stranger OBs I never met before. I didn't like that idea at all. As far as having the baby? Well I LOVED being alone with only my husband around if I needed him. I don't think I want anyone else there. Maybe my best friend. Maybe. However, I wouldn't mind having a midwife to come by and check in us afterwards, I didn't like how isolated I felt in that respect. I had a big tear that should have been sutured but I didn't realize it in time b/c I couldn't see it properly... but I guess I got time to think about that.

 

Anyhow, mostly I just wanted to say hello again to any of my old UC friends--and howdy to those of you I haven't met yet! :)

Thank you all! I'm excited to be back...now that I'm getting more used to the idea of being pregnant.belly.gif

 

I'm scared to death of that dreaded HG again of course... but that's to be expected.

I must sound like an idiot, but what is HG?  What causes it?

You don't sound like an idiot at all! I probably wouldn't know if I hadn't gone through it myself...

Zipporah, have you tried homeopathy for the HG? I bet you'd find it extremely helpful, especially if you got a full consult done and he/she gave you your constitutional remedy, it could/should stop the HG and prevent it in any future pregnancies as well.

 

When in 2009 did you have yours? I seem to remember you from when I UC'd my daughter in late 2008.

 

I'm back due to another baby as well! Congrats!
