Am I Putting Myself In Danger

Rose - August 6

I have a 3 month old baby and am pregnant again. This is my 8th pregnancy in 11 years. I have had one miscarriage and 6 births - 3 va___al and 3 cesarean. One was a stillbirth the others were all complex pregancies. We have also just discovered after the birth of this last baby that there is a genetic condition that affects me and all my children - some of my children have very serious medical problems. The last pregnancy I really struggled with and ended up with severe anemia (hb 7) resulting in the beginning of high output heart failure. I had a cesarean during which my blood pressure fell so low they had to sqeeeze loads of bags of fluid through me. This 3rd scar was slow healing and required a pressure dressing in hospital because of splitting in middle and bleeding lots. Once home the scar split open in middle about 6 times and finally healed after about 3 weeks. After the birth I spent 3 days in HDU and needed 2 pints blood transfusion because of the anemia which raised my hb to about 9. I was supposed to take iron tablets 3 x a day for 4 months afterwards but I haven't. I suspect that it is not a good thing to be pregnant so soon after a 3rd ceserean - I have not consulted a doctor yet or told anyone (too scared of everyones reaction) I am worried that I am putting myself in danger. I would very much appreciate anyones input on this.

I am not a doctor but I would say Yes to all of the above!! Please follow the doctors advice. Go to a free clinic to get medical help. Sounds like you need to have someone professional to talk to too. To make yourself accountable. You seem to be a intellegent lady. God Bless Lisa*9
