So this is a long story! Friday Nov. 2 I went into my Dr. apt. and things were not looking so great with me! Zoey was doing great but mommy wa falling apart. So much swelling walking with just hospital socks on was almost impossible! Protein in my urine! and high uric acid levels in my blood. They decided that I needed to be induced... stinking preeclampsia.
I get to the hospital and find out I am already contracting on my own. They put me on seizure medicine b/c my blood pressure was too high. They put in one of those cervix pills to try to make things going faster. Waited 4 hours; no progress. they start me on pitocin. Contraction got worse. But, i hung in there and did everything natural with no pain medicine.
30 min. of pushing and she was here! Did skin to skin for 2 hours and then while i was making my first trip to the bathroom they come in to tell me they took her to the nursery b/c her oxygen level was too low.
She got sent to a different hospital with out me. b/c her lungs weren't taking in enough oxygen.
Finally get her released on saturday just to go back to the other hosital b/c my blood pressure had reached 170/120... They took care of me and finally we made it home Monday of this week!
She is the most perfect thing I have ever seen!!!! 6 lbs. 2.9 oz and 19 1/4 inches long! Absolutly beautiful!View Thread
She was born at 36 weeks and 4 days of gestation, and she is doing great and getting bigger everyday!! She is such a blessing and so worth everything I went through! I love being a mommy soo much that I am ready to have another one already and it's only been 5 weeks and 4 days since I had her! lol! I lost 53lbs. it was mostly all swelling from the preeclampsia... so i am back to prepregnancy weight already!! which is amazing! I thought i was going to look like a whale for awhile after b/c of how much weight I gained!
Hope everyone else is doing well!! Keep up the good work ladies your babies will be here before you know it!View Thread
other: went to the OB yesterday there was a lot of protein in my urine... they did blood work and I have to do a 24 hour urrine collection... they did a nonstress test on Zoey and she is doing great! So mommy is falling apart but i am happy babygirl is doing great!
Yay! Glad to hear the up-date! Also, am glad to hear you and your baby girl are doing great!!! What mommyin2011 said is correct I washed all of my soon to be DD's clothes and was worried about the pinks bleeding into the other colors but was amazing to find out they didn't!!! Good luck with the last 4 weeks and couple days till your due date!!! View Thread
