Hello my name is Stephanie. I am so sorry we all have this in common. I have an 18 month DD and was pg with triplets. Here is my story in progress sorry its going to be long.
On Saturday Oct. 11th my water broke at 17 weeks. We rushed to L&D but by the time we got there I was almost fully dialated and contracting every 3 min. I was shocked when without medications my labor stopped. The Dr.s could see a bulging bag of waters at my cervix. They put me in trandelmburg (sp) with my feet above my head and we waited.
The next day I had an U/S that showed baby A half in half out of my cervix but she still had good fluid around her so it was another day of waiting.
So Monday brought the news that Mackenzie (baby A) was fully in the birth canal but still had good fluid around her. Abby (baby B) and Patrick (baby C) were doing very well. So more waiting.
Then Thursday Oct. 16th Mackenzie's water broke for real. It was clear to the Dr.s that her bag of waters was infected. There was nothing they could do. So when I didn't go in to labor. My Dr. reached up and pulled her out. She was born at 3pm and lived for about a min. We were able to hold her, take pictures, and given a memory box from the hospital with foot and hand prints.
As for me I'm on 3 different antibiotics to keep me and the 2 babies from getting septic. If I can avoid the infection for 1 week the Dr.s will try to place a cerclage. I'm still on complete hospital bed rest and will be for the rest of my pregnancy. Abby and Patrick are doing well. Hopefully I will be here untill Febuary.
I hope you ladies don't mind me posting here as I am still pg ( this is very strange to me and I'm having a hard time my self). If this bothers anyone please let me know. Thank you for reading all of this.
I am so very sorry that your sweet baby girl, Mackenzie, has passed away ... I am hoping, and praying, that Abby and Patrick make it...You must be so torn...being still pregnant with two lo's..grieving the one you lost...fearing for your other two..I am so sorry that this is happening too you.
I am fine with you posting here...you belong here..you just lost one of your babies
I am so sorry. What a nightmare! I, personally, am terrified of getting pregnant again right now. I'm afraid of loosing another baby. I can't imagine the stress you must be going through. I am sending all my happy thoughts your way that Abby and Patrick are alright.
I am so very sorry for the loss of your precious baby girl Mackenzie. I can't even begin to imagine what kinds of emotions that are flooding you right now. I don't have a problem with you posting here. I don't think anyone will because you are kind enough to give warning in the subject line.
I pray that Abby and Patrick are born happy and healthy and screaming into this world.
I agree, please feel comfortable to be here with everyone. Its probably harder for you to grieve when people will no doubt say 'stupid' comments to you IRL about 'how you should feel'
I'll be thinking of you and your family.
I'm so sorry to hear that your little girl didn't make it. Having 2 other babies in your womb in no way lessens the loss of your baby. I can't imagine how hard it must be for you to grieve while still pregnant.
I am so very sorry for your loss. Please keep us updated on you other babies. I will keep you in my prayers.
My SIL went through a similar things. It is so hard to grieve the loss of one baby and stay positive about the others. Hang in there.
