Hello my name is Sarah. I lost my son at 35 weeks due to Preeclampsia. It was my first time pregnant.
Sunday April 20,2014: Easter Sunday, and also my mother's birthday. Around 3am I noticed my tummy and body alone just felt odd, and I didn't feel my son move who during sleeping hours was very active. My fiancé was at work he travels a lot and I texted him just telling him I didn't feel normal. Being this was my first pregnancy I didn't really think much of it bc I just thought maybe I was over stressing myself, so I laid back down and tried to go to sleep. I woke up around 10am: my belly was extremely hard and I still haven't felt my baby move so I really start to panic.
I called my cousin told her I felt as if I needed to go to the hospital; my gut told me something was wrong but I was going to shower bc that normally helped me relaxed and my son enjoyed the showers. it was weird I just felt the most relaxed but anyway I took the shower and my cousin showed up my stomach was still hard so we rushed to the hospital and as soon as we got there they check my blood pressure and it was sky rocking in the 200 so they immediately put a catheter in and said I needed to go for an emergency c section bc my life was in danger. I was so scared and it happened so fast there was nothing I could've done or asked. After my recovering I then found out that my placenta had erupted and I was bleeding internally and I had lost my son. There was nothing they could've done for him they tried everything it was already to late I had to have a blood transfusion and put on magnesium. It was the most hardest and devastating experience I have ever gone through. My baby boy was 4 pounds and 20 inches he was so beautiful to me breaks my heart I feel like it I would have gone to the hospital right at 3am I would've saved him his name was Prestyn, and I loved him and wanted him so much. my heart aches every single day and I'm so sad and confused and just lost I have no idea what to do. I was so close in becoming a mommy I wanted it so bad all I can think of is failure and at fault. but that's my story. Thank you for reading. Any words of encouragement counts cinsisering I am so discouraged about everything now I barely leave the house. :/
I found out I was pregnant in the middle of everything. I was finishing graduate school for my MSW... Read MorePaige
