Hi, this is my first time at any forum actually, but I really feel the need to talk about my experience, and I can't find anybody to listen.
One week ago today, I gave birth to my angel Nathan Scott. I just found out one week prior to that that I was pregnant.
I was in the hospital because my blood pressure was so high, and we couldn't get it down. During an MRI the tech told me I had something in my pelvis, had bloodwork done, and it confirmed I was pregnant.
I was sent home, and 2 days later went to an OB to start mt prenatal doctors visits. She did an ultrasound, and determined I was 4 or 5 weeks pregnant, but referred me to a perinatologist because of my high blood pressure and diabetes.
The next day I went to see the Perinatologist, and had another ultrasound...he said I was 23 weeks pregnant, but my baby had no heartbeat. That was the hardest thing for me to hear, especially since I was told I was 4 or 5 weeks pregnant.
This happened on Wed. The doctor set me up to come in on the following Monday to deliver, so he could have a fwe days to get my blood pressure down.
On Monday, I went into Labor and Delivery and I was put in a birthing room and the induction was started. The next morning my contractions were pretty bad, and my water broke. Up until now, everything went ok. The delivery was wierd. My son was so small that after my water broke, he just kind of slid out, but his head was a bit large, so it was stuck. The doctor said I just had to wait until I dialated more.
