hi when i was pregnant i developed really bad pre eclampsia and was told i wasnt allowed home from hospital as it was too dangerous.I stayed in hospital for 3 weeks visiting the labour ward 3 times when elle heart rate vanished but it always came back at last minuite.one morning a doctor finally decided its too dangerous to leave me any longer and gave me 2 hours notice i was going to theatre.i had my c section after they rescued my blood pressure from 122 (should be 68) and elle was born at 3lb two months early.she got taken to icu straight away and i wasnt allowed to see her for another 5 hours all i had was a photo.The doctors told me they had found a large blood clot behind the placenta so we both were very lucky. I finally got to hold my daughter the next day.but wasnt allowed off my ward as my pre eclampsia was still present.I finally got to take elle home after a month. We then later found out she needed heart surgery in leeds.she is all done and well now but i still seem to be very emotional and cry at the littlest things is this normal ???
