I am very sorry for the loss of your precious Olivia. Keep posting. Keep taking care of yourself. Be gentle. Get some rest. Allow yourself to feel whatever comes up. Spend time with your husband, hugging and holding each other. Cry all you need to and don't even for one moment think there is anything you did to cause this. I have often felt betrayed by my body - but - know this - you did nothing wrong!

Preeclampsia is a horrible and vicious disease that robs us in so many different and painful ways. Try to direct your anger at PE if you need to put it somewhere. It isn't fair what this disease does to us and our children.

My heart goes out to you and your husband. Let us know what we can do for you.

Terrible effects of Preeclampsia

Postby leeann34 » Mon Oct 03, 638625 11:10 pm

I am heartbroken. I lost my daughter Olivia on Sept 1, 2009. She was our first child. It is the worse experience any mother can or should be allowed to experience. I had to have an emergency c-section at 23 weeks and 6 days because of Preeclampsia. Olivia did well for awhile, but developed necrotising entercolitis exactly on the day she turned two months old. She fought hard to overcome it, but in the end had severe brain damage. My husband and I decided to stop aggressive treatment... another decesion parents should never have to make. I still get angry. I feel as though my body betrayed me even though I know it wasn't my fault. Olivia had to fight so hard to live because my body didn't do what it was suppossed to do. I think about it and cry often. I can't describe in words my sorrow and how badly I wanted Olivia in my life.
