Gestational Complications Forum


Hi,

All expectant mothers worry about the possibility of complications during pregnancy, and while we hope your pregnancy goes smoothly things occasionally can go wrong.
This forum is open to all 3 trimesters. We will be actively moving threads on this subject from the trimester areas in an effort to put those affected in touch with others who are experiencing the same thing but are further along in their pregnancy. While we understand that members tend to stick to their relevant trimester areas we hope this new forum will help provide extra support to those that need it (obviously the forum is also open to well wishers but it is primarily to help put members in touch with others 'in the know').

We feel that putting these cases in one forum may help to filter out some of the 'noise' of the general forums and help you to feel less anxious.

Regards,
The BnB Team

--
Please note: Our usual forum rules still apply to this forum. This isn't the right place to discuss the cessation of certain complications. There will be another area for this.

Sounds about right to me... anyone who is experiencing pregnancy related complications. I have complications this time around and had them last time which resulted in our son's death at 37 weeks, just 8 hours after delivery. I sure hope this forum helps anyone going through any complications This is a great idea as I didn't feel right posting in the still birth sections as my son wasn't born still, and we decided to remove him from life support as he wasn't going to make it regardless. I feel much better having this forum here for sure.

I dunno if i am suited for this forum... At 16weeks we got told we are high risk for down syndrome but refused the amnio just had a detailed scan at 16 weeks then at 21 weeks. Although during both scans they didnt say if they noticed anything wrong ect?? if there was something visibly wrong would they have told us? and also if our baby did have downs would they be able to spot stuff on the ultrasound? x

Yep, Gestational diabetes, Obstetric cholestasis, Placental abruption, Placenta praevia, Polyhydramnios, Pre-eclampsia, Ectopic pregnancy or fetal abnormalities etc. Anything like that

I'm sorry to hear that hun Don't get me wrong, some complications do end in a tragic loss after birth. That section is for neonatal losses too and certainly fits your circumstance. The 'please note' on my post was more discussion of 'Should I, shouldn't I' before birth
