preeclampsia at 28 weeks and emergency c section

Hi everyone. I just wanted to post here to share my story. For anyone going through the same.

At 28weeks I went to the hospital for my 28 week check with the consultant. I went in to find my bp was sky high and I had protein in my water so I was amitted straight away and given steriod injections. I was monitored closly but the day after had a bad turn. I was rushed down to delivery and had so many drs and nurses round me. I was so scared. I have pcos and it took me and my hubby bout a year n half to concieve with help from metformin. Anyway, after about 7 hours of them trying to stable me theu decided I had to be rushed in for an emergency section.

My beautiful little girl was born 21-12-12 only 2 pound 3 and is now 11weeks old. She was discharged from hospital 3weeks before my actual due date. Its been such a hard journey from ventilator, c pap, hi flow and going through infections but the work the hospital staff do is amazing. We are at home with no oxygen shes on 4 hourly feeds and over 5 pound.

It is a very hard thing to go through bt remember you are never alone.

Lots of love x

I just want people to know they are not alone.
