So I had my son back in August 23, 2011. He was born at 34 weeks and 1 day weighing 6 lbs 12 ozs. Even though my blood sugars were in basically perfect control with minimal spiking, my son was still large. I delivered early due to the fact that I had severe pre-eclampsia. What I'm trying to find out is a few things.
First off, I'm 27 years old. At first my husband and I were going to wait 2 to 3 years to have another one, well he approached me with having another one when our baby son is 1. If we wait the 2 to 3 years I'll be 30. Has anyone had a baby in their 30's? Did you have more of a problem with the pregnancy?
Second off, I was told that diabetes and pre-eclampsia pretty much go hand in hand. Is this true? I know I have a risk of getting again but is it because of my diabetes or just because I've already had it once before?
Thanks for the help.
