Would you try for an other baby? Emmybean 1 child; Plymouth, United Kingdom 1649 posts

I have one daughter but have always planned on having two children. My problem is having my daughter left me with bizarre flashy vertical double vision and I've had pupil dilation, MRI scans, CT scans - the works! Nothing untoward has been found but it has been very disturbing and has caused me an awful lot of trauma and even servere post natal depression. Now because of this I'm not sure if I should have an other baby because almost 8 months on I can kind of live with my vision I mean it doesn't have me wanting to jump off a high building anymore! I did plan on having a year gap between pregnancies but I do not know what I'd do if my vision got worse from having an other baby... It would be horrendous. But I don't know how happy I would be knowing my daughter didn't have any siblings. Adoption is an option as it always has been but I think I would really love to be pregnant one more time. Should I just be happy with the one child knowing she has a happy mother? Or is it worth the risk??? I know only I can actually answer that question but what do you think you would do?
Thanks xx

Have you thought about surrogacy?

Have you talked to your doctor about it? Like the chance of another making it worse, etc. I would def. talk to my doctor about it and find out more. If there is a risk, I probably would not chance it. Surrogacy or adopting could always be an option.

No! I haven't! And reading that just made my stomach go totally mental with butterflies. That could be the answer to a lot of my problems :)
Thank you.

Yeah, I've spoken to them and because they don't really know what caused it they don't know if it could get worse. Surrogacy never ever crossed my mind! I guess that it certainly something I could look into.
Thanks xx

There's always surrogacy.
