My story

I was told at 12 weeks I was high risk for developing preeclampsia. I was just trying to come to terms with throwing up everyday and the multiple episodes of bleeding I was having. Then at 20 weeks I started to develop elevated liver enzymes, doctors were worried I might be developing HELLP syndrome. I was told my baby might not make it to 24 weeks. I then started my journey with maternal fetal medicine… appointments twice a week to make sure my baby and I were okay. I was able to make it to 39.4 and go spontaneously (which is awesome for preeclampsia). Upon arrival to the hospital my BP was 190/100. The dreaded magnesium was started to try and prevent seizures… eventually Pitocin was started because magnesium slows down contractions. Then I had my daughter!! She was not breathing well due to the mag. And the NICU team took her right away. I held her for 2 minutes before they took her to the NICU and I didn’t see her again for 24 hours. Im so thankful for my doctors and nurses that my daughter and I are able to be here today! And we just want to help spread awareness!
