Hello all, I'm new to the board, I've luked some but never really post. My due date was dec. 9th but i had my son on nov. 25th via csection due to my seizure condition. I hope y'all don't mind me joining in so late.
For some reason I can't put a picture on here using my iPad but here is birth story:
On nov.22nd I had a dr.s appointment and I told my dr. That I have had a headache for a few days and I was just to feeling good, like how I feel when I'm about to get a seizure. He told me well maybe your going into labor and he checked me, cervix was closed. So he told me it was just the end of pregnancy and he hopes I feel better. To call my neurologist to get her opinion. So I went home and just that she said to increase my medication at night, so the next morning I wake up with the same headache, shortness of breath and I couldn't really feel the baby move. So I allied my neurologist, she said it has nothing to with the meds, to call my ob. My ob says to come into l&d, as soon as I get to l&d I start to seize over and over. So the keep me overnight. On Thursday the same thing happens I start to seize for 10-20 mins. So the dr.s decide that they are going to deliver on friday. Friday morning comes, we walk to the OR and I get the spinal and lay down and all I remember is saying I don't feel good and they say I go into another seizure and they put me under and deliver the baby, everything happened within 15 minutes. Gianni was born at 10:43 am Nov.25th. Then the next thing I remember I woke up in IMU. I didn't get to see Gianni until over 24 hours later. I was an emotional wreck!it was horrible. So when I finally got released to postpartum and got to see my baby a few hours later they had to take him to the NICU because he wasn't eating. While he was in the NICU they did an u/s on his head they found a cyst on his brain and extra fluid, so they did a ct scan. Thankfully everything came back normal! He started thriving and was able to be discharged the same day I was. I was in the hospital for a week and I'm so glad we are home!
Sorry it was so long! I tried to shorten it as much as possible!
