I have been on here about a week now. And have shared some of my story while answering others posts. So here it is my story. I have three daughters. Amaris almost 6, Keltie 3 and my angel Reagan who we lost at 34 wks. About a month ago, This pregnancy was a little different then my other 2. I had inflammation of the cervix with all 3, This time is was worse then before, I was put on bed rest a few days at a time until 14wk when I went in for a appointment and the dr said it was getting worse so we cauterised the blood vessels to make the bleeding stop, At this point it was only in my urine testing. So we done this procedure, And was told it might make me cramp,That night I started bleeding very badly, went out to the ER and they told me it was likely that I miscarried. To see my doctor the next day. So we did and they decided to do another procedure, where they go in and put moncells (sp?) on the cervix to stop it. After that everything was fine. No more bleeding everything was great.
Reagan grew like a normal baby, Actually 2 wks bigger then her due date form about 28wks on. At my next appointment I complained about my side hurting which they contributed to muscle/skeletal problem from the way she was laying and if it continued we would look into further, Although wk and wk I complained, left work to see the dr bc the pain was bad they never "looked into it". I rested and done what I could to stay off me feet at 33/5 we went in for our normal app. which was Mon. everything was great.
By Wed. I didn't think I had felt any movement, but chalked it up to being busy. Thur. I went to work and I thought I was really strange I hadn't felt anything so I made to a point to go home and relax and see what was up. NOTHING. So on Fri after my other 2 daughters had there flu shot,I walked right past the door to my dr to the elevator, Then my gut said you need to go see. So I went in and that's when we learned we lost our baby girl. They could not tell us much but that we would have to wait to see once she was here if we could tell what went wrong.
We went to the hospital to be induce which took a whopping 19 hours! And once my little Reagan Grace was here, They told us her umbilical cord was to short and likely got pinched cutting the bloodflow once she turned into position. I have never in my life heard of such a thing! And have not been able to find anything that supports that this kinda thing "just happens".
I think we are doing as well as we can at the moment. Our six yr old is very upset that she didn't get to see her, not that she is gone, because as she says she knew that. But she just wanted to see her.
