|It started off as any other normal pregnancy, my sister in law went through the morning sickness - the swollen hands, the weight gain, everything that comes along with getting ready to have a baby. There were points in time after she was 21 weeks through where she would feel dizzy and she couldn't see straight. When her doctor had told her what it could possibly be she didn't make a full diagnosis. My sister in law had then again not been gaining any weight, she had been losing weight. That was yet another sign. She went to the doctors and spoke to her Doctor, she didn't say anything about preeclampsia. She had sent her to take a urine test. That's where they found two plus protein in her urine. They sent her straight to the hospital. She got there and only stayed a few hours. They had sent her right back home. This is the upsetting part. She went for yet another check up with the doctor cause she wasn't feeling right. Doctor measured her growth in her stomach area. she was only measuring up 26 weeks at 31 weeks There is yet again another sign She sent her to do another urine test, she was 4 plus in her urine.THEY SENT HER TO A LAB FOR BLOOD WORK THEN SENT HER HOME. A few days later, my sister in law did not feel the baby moving, she rushed for a emergency appointment. The baby was gone. We spent 48 long hours in a hospital delivering a beautiful baby boy. At the hospital they had to induce her. They gave her the pill to soften her cervix. But her doctor forgot to order the pitocin . She laid there in pain for over 24 hours, to deliver a baby that she couldn't even bring home. The doctor had to do a emergency c-section . My nephew was born on Januray 4 2008, 9:04 am 1 lbs 15 oz 14 "in . He was the most amazing baby I had ever seen.|
Ethan will be turning 3 at the end of this month (October). The month of October always brings up some scary memories and emotions for me... I never thought I would have a difficult pregnancy or labor. After all...
