This was my second pregnancy, my first had no issues, born naturally and no pre eclampsia. Up until 34 weeks I had a healthy pregnancy with no issues what so ever.. 34+6 (thursday) I had the midwife and my blood pressure was slightly raised (130/90) but no issues just to check again on the following Monday. Friday night I began feeling pressure and thought it was just baby trying to engage so went to bed. Saturday morning I woke up at 6 to get ready for my last day at work but my stomach was cramping (not contracting but cramping) it was quite sore but baby was moving normlly so took some paracetamol and tried to carry on as it got more painful I rang mau at 8, they asked me to come in believing it was a uti but just to check. In the car on the way there it started getting unbelievably painful I was crying in pain. I got to the hospital at 9, did a wee sample and got put in a room to wait for midwife as I felt sick.. immediately started throwing up then sat down to have my observations taken, nothing was said at that point but the midwife wanted to have a feel of my tummy and asked me to lay down as I moved I felt something come out of me (I thought it was waters) so I wacred down my pants to have a look and it was blood. The midwife hit the emergency alarm and began trying to find a fetal heart beat. I heard nothing. Lots of doctors and midwives rushed in and wheeled me off to another room where the doctor began to scan my stomach as anaesthetists where trying to put cannulas in. The doctor asked me if he could call me Sam I said yes (I hate the name Sam but didn't care) he carried on" I have something to tell you" I knew what he was going to say and I just started saying no.. he continued again "you're baby has passed away. There is no heart beat" I sobbed uncontrollably still loosing blood. I got rushed to theater begging for more pain killers.. they gave me more powerful pain killers over and over. The obstetrician broke my waters and they gave me something to induce me. The cramping in my stomach was so bad I couldn't feel the contractions. The labour was really quick and I was waiting for my partner to arrive still (my mum took me) when I felt him coming down and the need to push.. the doctor rushed out to meet him and tell him that the baby had passed away and I held off pushing for him to come in.. as soon as he came in I had my legs up on the doctor (there was no time to put up the stirrups) and he came out.. this perfect little boy who looked exactly like his big brother but he wasn't awake I held him on my skin crying so much.. I was already having a blood transfusion and fluids by this point. I'd lost over 4 pints of blood.. then the doctors realised I wasn't breathing properly and I had to have an oxygen mask on and a heart scan and xray . There was fluid on my lungs and I wasn't getting enough oxygen. They were talking about comatosing me when my oxygen levels began to pick up slightly and they sent me to icu to be monitored. This was all before 2 pm so within 6 hours my boy went from moving normally to being dead and born whilst I was hemorrhaging and struggling to breath. In three hours he went from moving to having no heart beat. From Thursday not having pre eclampsia to Saturday having severe pre eclampsia and having a massive abruption. My little Lorenzo passed last Saturday on the 23/4/16 at 35+1 at 5lb7oz
