I wonder if Science is scaring us. Babies have been born for a long time now. regularly too I think.
I have one daughter with her first preeclampsia labor was induced and baby was here a month early. 4LBS. She is fantastic fun now but that was scarry. ICU with UV lights.
Same daughter pregnant with Baby #2 Doc says looks like placenta is small. we will keep an eye on it. ?
Oldest daughter is having their first! has a blood clot and is bleeding doc said 50/50 shot the whole pregnancy. 9 months to go and the doctor tells her she could loose the baby at any stage.
New doctor! said it is a common problem that will resolve itself and she should take it easy but try not to get stressed!
God Bless your family Babies are the best! no matter the species.
