Hello, I'm very new this but I find myself depressed at times wondering because doctors seem to not know the answers. I had a perfectly healthy pregnancy until I was about 28wks pregnant. On that day, my boyfriend & I went for my prenatal visit & I measured 33wks. My midwife then scheduled me for an ultrasound, before I could even make that appointment, I was hospitalized. I'd been dehydrated, which also caused me to contract. By this time I had already lost part of my mucus plug. I was put on bedrest& sent home. Not even a week following, I was back in the hospital on bedrest again. My daughter was born @30wks gestation. She was fine, we were just waiting on her to gain weight so that she could come home with us. The hospital stay was tough, & even more tough when we were told that she had a hemmorhage, there was nothing they could do. At about six weeks old, I can't remember.. they then put a reservoir in, hoping and praying they wouldn't have to go back in to out a shunt, what it all borded down to is that she did need it. They left the reservoir in as well. She had many setbacks after the shunt was placed but the drs didn't believe it was infected. She came home at 3mos 9dys on july10 of 2013. My baby was hospitalized again in september because her shunt and reservoir BOTH werw infected. I had taken her to the doctor three times and her neuro kept telling me it was fine , but I am a attentive mother . Thank god I am . I just worry if she will have CP . they keep telling me its too early to tell !
