Baby Amelia born at 26+3


Hello girls,

I don't post terribly often on these boards but I do lurk, just wanted to update you about the whirlwind few weeks we have had.

I had noticed that I had not been feeling baby move as much. At first I thought it was because I had been very busy and had just not been so aware of it, or maybe she had changed position in my tummy, but it kept niggling at me. On Monday Aug 3rd my partner and I went to the hospital hoping to be given re-assurance that all was fine, but they did my blood pressure and it was 225 over 150, I was taken pretty much immediately to treage where they put all sorts of lines and drips into me and shortly after that I found myself having an emergency C-Section. The doctors told us that although the baby was extremely premature they had to get her out of my body. I had developed very severe pre-eclampsia and they had to get the placenta out otherwise I might die. I was already in danger of having a massive stroke due to the blood pressure.

Amelia (Millie) was born at 17:54 on Monday 3rd August, weighing 620 grams (about 1lb 5 ounces) she was transferred to St Mary's Hospital in Manchester at around midnight that night. I remained in Stepping Hill hospital for six days until I was well enough to be transferred to St Mary's. It was terrible not being able to see her and at times I was very low, but my partner was wonderful.

Millie is doing pretty well, she is tiny but perfectly formed. She is recovering from her first infection, we had been told she will get many infections etc and to be prepared for it, but when it happened I fell to pieces, but as I say she is improving again now and her infection levels are going down which is great news. I am not going to post too much here about her progress, but I am thinking of opening a thread in the premature babies section of this site where I can update on her progress etc.

My partner is Danish he says Millie has Viking blood in her and is a little fighter, so far she has proved him right, we just hope and pray that she continues to do so.
