So my first was born at 28 weeks. Now that I'm pregnant with #2, my OB has put me on Progesterone shots for the next 20 weeks. I was talking to a "friend" (more like an acquntence) about it because she was curious. No big deal. He LO was born at 35 weeks and just recently came home. As she was asking her questions, I told her that since her last one was early, if she decided to have more, she would probably be recommended for the shots as well. Her response...."....I have NO plans of more. I have my hands full and then some but love every minute of it. Just no way I could handle seeing a kid go threw all this again. It would just be selfish of me. "
Since this is an email, I can't tell if she is being overly sarcastic, or saying something along the lines of I am being selfish for wanting to bring another little life into the world after all the problems I had with my first. How would you take it?
I wouldn't take offense at all. I think it's just the way she personally feels.
I had a 35 weeker and my ob said next time would probably be earlier and I feel the same way as your friend. I don't think I could put another child through it and it would make me feel selfish. I don't feel that way if other women do it though.
I imagine it's the same way with her, it's just a personal choice.
I don't think she mean't anything mean towards you. And good luck with your shots I'm on them right now as well, this is my 4th baby and second time using the 17p shot. I swear those shots are amazing.
