Loss two babies to Preeclampsia

Postby robin1021 » Mon Jan 20, 2014 06:35 pm

My daughter Jasmine was born 1 pound 2.5 ounces at 24 weeks into my pregnancy. She was so amazing and doing so well. :D She spent 2 1/2 months in the hospital and finally made it home but passed away from SIDS in 2001. In 2003 I tried again and had my son Jordan. He was born 1 pound 2.5 ounces as well at 26 weeks and was very sick. Unfortunately he never made it home. He lived 28 days. I had preeclampsia with both of them. Just typing this brings sadness to my heart. Has anyone been in a similar situation and have had two babies pass away due to preeclampsia? Thanks and God bless?

So sorry that your daughter and son are not here with you. We loss our son at 28 weeks and he was born 1lb 10oz. There are no words, except I'm sorry for your loss. I would recommend talking with Maternal Fetal medicine specialist.

Also, I have seen a couple women that chose to use a surrogate. If you use the Search option in the top right, you may find posts about that specificially. It's a personal choice to try again and/or use surrogacy. I pray you find the best care for either option and hope a living healthy take home baby is your outcome.

Again, I encourage you to search the boards and connect with others. These ladies have truly helped me during my healing process this past year.

Sending you a BIG virtual hug!!!

You're welcome, I replied to another post of yours where you were looking for questions to ask.

Most of these questions I found helpful when I met with different MFM for consultations.

I am very sorry for the loss of your two babies. I lost my first child in 2007 due to severe PE, and a second daughter in 2011 because of a complete abruption (which according to my doctors is related PE + abruption= faulty placental implantation. In between my daughters I did have a son, who I was able to carry to 36 weeks before being induced.

After the loss of my first child, I devoured all these boards and comments, trying to learn as much as I could. Knowing that I wasn't alone helped me through my grief.

Once again, I am very sorry for the loss of your precious babies.
