Hi everyone. I am new to this group, but I post a lot in the December ddc. Anyway, I wanted to come share my story with you guys. It has taken me a while, because it's still hard for me to talk about.
I was pregnant with twins, due December 25th (which has now been changed to December 30th) On July 25th around midnight I went into preterm labor, but with all the miscommunication in this pregnancy I didn't actually know it was labor. I thought I was having bleeding which has been family normal during this pregnancy. I was also having pretty bad cramps but related it to the bleeding and just thought I'd wait it out til morning and go see my doctor. Well around 2:40am I started feeling lots of pressure and at 2:45am I delivered on of my twins, a little boy we named Caleb. I woke my husband and he called 911 and an ambulance came. I don't really remember much after that til later on that day. I do remember asking my nurse what my chances of delivering my little girl would be and she said very high, about an 80% chance. I was so upset, I can't even begin to put it in to words. I asked ehat had been done with my son, why I had not held hm or seen him after arriving at hospital. The nurse said because of the situation he was taken directly to patholegy. I was very upset about this so the awesome nurse I had went to patholegy right then to see what she could do. She ended up getting pictures of him wrapped in a little blanket that was later given to me. They are the only this gs I have remaining of my sweet little boy. I stayed in the hospital for almost a week while they watched my baby girl and I, then after asuring I was do I g better and the bleeding had slowed they sent me home. I have been home almost 2 weeks and I have been doing good so far, though my chances are still very high of going I into preterm labor again. My doctor has me on very strict bed rest and I am able to do nothing but take a shower and use the batahroo. It is very tough as I am not use to this at all and have a 2 year old at home. My husband has been awesome though about taking care of me and our son.
I am so sorry for your loss of Caleb. What a terrible situation for you to have to deal with. While I know you are grateful to still be carrying your precious daughter I know it's horrible to have to grieve the loss of your son. We are here for you hun. I can't imagine what your going through right now. I hope your baby girl keeps baking hun.

so sorry your going through this. I don't even know what the right words are but sending lots of positive thoughts and virtual support your way. I can't imagine how hard it is to be on bedrest with a little one at home running around but so glad your getting so much support from your husband. Hang in there and hopefully little girl will stay in for quite a bit longer!
