Hello. I am 32 and have 4 children. I just found out I am pregnant,(ttotally unexpected). My last child was 6 weeks premature due to uterine rupture. I lost alot of blood and it was a very scary experience. I am now scared of what that means for me and my new pregnancy now. Just wondering if anyone else had been through this and still had another child afterwards. Thanks to anyone with any advice.View Thread
Thanks for your reply. I have been to my OB now and was sent to a high-risk OB. So far they have been great and are taking alot of precautions to make sure this does not happen again. I pray everything will be OK.View Thread
