    Hi All! My name is Nicole, I am 25 and a mom to 2 wonderful children, Matthew age 7 and Madeline age 5. I am not with their sperm donor of a father since my youngest was 2. We have been blessed with a wonderful man and father in our lives to help care and be there for us for the past 2.5 years. However, we want to have a child together. I am not sure if this is possible since when I was pregnant with my daughter I developed a rare condition called Acute Fatty Liver of Pregnancy where they took her 4 weeks earlier then her EDD. I had just turned 20 when I was at the end of my pregnancy and was completely miserable with everything and the doctors told me to get my tubes tied at that time to prevent any future complications with any pregnancies. Now I want to get them un-tied but my OBGYN is strongly against it saying that me chances for dying are increased to 50% since I had the disease prior and that I need to enjoy the angels I have been blessed with. At this point I am requesting documents from my delivery and then I was to see a Maternal-Fetal specialist to see if pregnancy is even possible. If they think that it is safe for myself then I want to get a tubal reversal. But one step at a time. I am trying to stay upbeat, because I really would like one more child, but obviously not by risking myself.
    whew, that was a mouth-full. Anyways I just wanted to say Hi to everyone and I hope to find some support from others. Thanks!!!

    Welcome luvvie.

    The human body is amazing and sometimes docs can't always be 100% so you just never know what the future holds. Pursue what you desire and you just might prove them wrong.

    Good luck xxx
