Had my July baby in May!

Soo it's been quite the week for us! Last Tuesday I went to my perinatology appointment and my BP was 160/100. They checked my urine with the dipstick and it showed that I had 2+ protein so he told me to go straight to the hospital and called my OB to inform him. They started me on magnesium and were trying everything to keep the baby in as long as they could. They have me collect a 24 hr urine as well. I felt like complete crap to say the least and my BP was not budging at all. Thursday night around 10p my doctor came in to talk to us and basically told me that I would be in the hospital for a few weeks basically until I delivered, he went out to check my results from my urine and not even 10 minute later came storming back into my room and said "we having this baby tonight, I need to get him out now because you have 4 grams of protein in your urine and your kidneys are starting to be affected" I was hysterical crying to say the least. I was really just worried Abt taking the baby at 33 weeks. I did however receive 2 doses of steroids to help mature the baby's lungs which I am so grateful for! So on May 28th at 4:39am my baby boy was born weighing in at 4 lb 13 ounces and 17 inches long. He came into the world with a nice strong scream! He is still in the NICU which is so hard for me but he is doing amazing and they are anticipating that he only be here for 1 more week! It was a scary situation and all happened so fast but I'm just so grateful that my baby boy is healthy as can be!

I'm sooo glad that santino is doing so well!!! He was such a good weight for 33 weeks! I know it's hard being home with him but he's in great hands at the nicu and when he's ready you'll be able to snuggle that boy whenever and have him home with you!! Hope you're able to rest and are feeling well!!

Re: Had my July baby in May!

My 32 weeker was 4 pounds, 14 ounces as well. It's amazing how strong they are at that size. She was in the nicu for 5 weeks. But is now a healty, happy 7 year old! Good luck to you and congrats!!

This could have been my story, but I delivered 1 day shy of 36 weeks, and they never tried to "wait it out" for me. That is such a great weight for 33 weeks! He's going to do great. I'm sure he'll be coming home really soon. How are YOU feeling? That's not an easy recovery, the pre-e. 7 months later and my bp is still being controlled by meds.

Re: Had my July baby in May!

Congrats! DD was born at 34 weeks, 4lbs 4oz because I had pre-e and HELLP syndrome. I was also on magnesium and she was in the NICU for 6 weeks. Feel free to pm me if you need to chat or have questions. It's a tough thing to go through but once your little one is home it'll be a distant memory Chat Icon
