Just wanted to let you know that on the 9th my little girl was born. Arianna arrived at 35+6 and weighed 6lb 1 oz.
My midwife came that morning and sent me to the hospital again. My bp was 150/100 and I had 2 pluses of protein. When I got there my protein had gone up to +4. The hospital wanted to send me home again but then suddenly my bp started to go up and up. Within a very short time it became an emergency and I was put onto a magnesium sulphate drip and taken straight to theatre. Afterwards I was quite ill and have had bp problems since. They wouldn't even allow me to have a sip of water because they said it could overwhelm my heart and lungs.
I am still on labetalol 3 times a day and fluid tablets which do seem to be helping slowly. I believe they left me far too long and it frightens me what would have happened if they'd sent me home. Please anyone in the same situation, fight until you are heard. I feel very lucky, I have a beautiful daughter and I am on the road to recovery myself.
Thank you to all who have listened to, and supported me over the last number of weeks and a huge thanks to Liz.

congratulations! I hope that your health continues to improve and that you enjoy Arianna. I know it took some time for my BP to come down to reasonable levels.

Hi Chelle,

Huge congratulations on the safe arrival of Arianna.
From the sounds of it Chelle, you did a fabulous job all the way along of making yourself heard when those around you didnt want to listen....all credit to you there.

Enjoy every moment with your little girl, Im sure she will bring you happiness that outweighs all the worry getting her here.

Warm wishes
Liz

Hi Chelle,

Many congratulations! Sounds like a great weight for 35-36 weeks too!

I can't believe they wanted to send you home with 4+ protein and your past history either! I hope I never end up in your hospital! Ugh!

So relieved it ended ok and you are recovering though.

In my pregnancy with Alice I was developing pulmonary oedema (fluid on lungs) and was not allowed any fluids for 3-4 days. I stayed on the labetalol for about 8 weeks afterwards too. But I made a full recovery in time and I'm sure you will as well xx

Hi Chelle

Congratulations on the birth of Arianna. So glad to hear your good news I've been wandering how you where doing.

Like Jules I also had pulmonary odema and wasn't allowed fluid for about 4 days, my BP stabilised within a week or two of the birth and I stayed on BP tablets for around 4 months. I made a full recovery and given time I'm sure you will too.

Best wishes
Wendy
