Hello everyone. I am new so I thought I mind as well start here.
In December 05 I had my IUD removed and I also had my cervix frozen due to complications with my last pregnancy. I was informed it would take me atleast a year to get pregnant (because of my cervix being frozen). In late Feb 06 I found out I was pregnant. My levels were kinda out of whack but my first u/s found a pregnancy in utero. The beginning of March I began having alot of abdomen pain but figured it was normal with a 3rd pregnancy. On March 2nd I went to the ER and was told I just had an UTI and to follow up with my OB/GYN. On March 6, 06 was my kids first day at daycare. I made an appt for a follow up from the ER and then I dropped my then 2 yr old and 4 yr old off at daycare and ran some errands and then picked up my husband for lunch. We ate and I began feeling weasy so i went to the bathroom. I got sick to my stomach and when I went to stand up I couldnt walk at all. I was in too much pain. It took me about 15 minutes to get to our table. I decided to go home and take a shower so we could go to dr ASAP. My husband had to drive once we got to our house he had to carry me to the bathroom and I couldnt take a shower because I was in too much pain. Hubby rushed me to the Dr's office and they took my vitals and had me seat in the waiting room. After a few minutes I started feeling worse so they rushed me into a room. I am not sure exactly what happened in the first room. My husband said I was sweating but was ice cold to the touch and really pale. They then took me into the u/s room and found out I was pregnant with twins. However one of the twins had placed theirself in my tubes. I had to have emergency surgery.
During surgery I dropped down to 5 units of blood in my body when ur suppose to have 12. In other words I almost died. There was a liter and half of blood in my abdomen from the tubal rupture. I was giving only a 20% chance of carrying JoeJoe to atleast 20 weeks. I was on bedrest most of my pregnancy.
On October 18th, I was finally 40 weeks and the Dr decided to induce me however their was another lady in labor at the time so I was put on the back burner (the hospital only had one delivery room). That night I was giving a cervidel (sp) to help soften and open the cervix). It really didnt help. I labored and delivered without an epidural but with demerol and staydol. He was born at 4:02 pm wieghing 7 lbs 12 ounces and 20 inches long.
