Hi, I'm Joyce in Denver (originally from PA) and I just joined the PE foundation a while back. I developed PIH last year around 26wks pg with my son, Anton. Went on bedrest soon after & was induced at 34w2d and delivered the next day after 15 hours of labor that included a lovely mag bag, pitocin & antibiotics b/c I never got to have my GBS test done. Well, after crashing the night after delivery & finally being stabilized, my husband, Chuck, and I were able to bring our little super guy home after 8 days in SJ's NICU.
I cannot say enough about that hospital. If you're curious, email me & I'll tell you which one. They had the best, most caring, experienced staff top to bottom. They kept me well informed the entire time and were extremely patient with 2 terrified new parents of a preemie.
Now, Chuck and I are busy chasing our mischevieous little Anton around since he's learning to walk. Yay! He'll be 1 year old on 6/28!!!! We've been blessed this past year, no problems, no missed milestones! Wow!
I am looking forward to helping in anyway I can. It absolutely amazes me that I had to find out about this terrible disease from the internet & not from my OB.
Good Luck Becky with your pregnancy! I wish you & your baby a safe, uncomplicated few more months!
Joyce (Severe PE)
