I recently lost my baby girl due preterm birth.
I lost my amniotic fluid 5 days prior to her birth. I woke up with what seemed like gas pains.. but i timed them since i was warned to take precautions to cramping (after i was discharged from the hospital after losing my water). I got up to use the restroom and noticed my discharge changed, as well. This again was another sign to be readmitted. I rushed to the hospital only to find out i was fully dialated and they could feel the baby through my cervix. I was rushed into a room where I had to face the hard reality all within a hour of being awake that i had no choice but to deliver my baby preterm. I was 19 wks 6 days and delivered her 4 hours after arriving at the hospital. I gave birth completely natural even though I was offered medication. She died during birth. After giving birth to my perfect angel, my placenta would not detach naturally so I had a d&c performed. I experienced minor bleeding after and hardly any cramps. My preterm birth was caused from a bacterial infection I was fighting most of my pregnancy. As well as a uti I got from the BV.
Since my fiance and I knew she was just to tiny to make it and we faced the cruel reality that we were gonna lose our sweet baby girl. We both agreed we wanted to try again. I know the doctors recommend 3 months before trying. We would like to try asap. Since my pregnancy was healthy besides the infection I am in hopes that this lessens my chances of having this happen again. I plan on takin extra precautions and supplements that help prevent bacterial infections as well as continuing my prenatal and multivitamin.
Any other mothers go through something similar and conceive successfully with a healthy pregnancy?
