    Hi Ladies,

    Warning all about me!!!

    Sorry for the big me post.

    Last week at 16 weeks, all going well baby growth fine, low risk everything so boringly normal. I went into labour, 2 hours after seeing FS and hearing my baby's heart beat. I delivered my baby girl Lily. She was perfect so tiny and so wanted.
    I'm waiting for the autopsy results.

    Planning her funeral for Friday

    I can't help but blame myself for everything. I don't know what I did wrong

    But I had just weaned off all the meds expect for the aspirin.
    DEX was reduced from 2 tabs till 13 weeks, then 1 tab for a week then 1 every second day then stopped
    Progesterone morning and night stopped at 13 weeks
    Clexane until 13 weeks
    Intralipid until 13 weeks

    I just can't help but feel, if I had of kept on these I could have kept my baby girl.

    Does anyone have any ideas on staying on the meds longer ??

    Or different instructions from Dr Beer or Dr M ??

    thank you

    Frances.... oh no, that's just so devastating. I just can't imagine the heartbreak you must be going through. And to think you were almost there. I just don't know what to say, except that I'm so thinking of you and your DH. I've never had a BFP even with all the immune meds, so I really can't comment on the length of time to continue them into pregnancy, so hopefully some of the other ladies will weigh into it. But for now, that doesn't really help you, so just big hugs and a few tears from me xx

    Francesthecat, again I'm so very very sorry that this has happened to you. I wish something I could do of say would help. I have been thinking of you and hoping you've got lots of love and support around you.

    I'm sorry I can't help with the info you're after. I'm unsure about the usual protocol for pregnancy. Please don't blame yourself though. There is nothing that you could have done. I know it is so hard though. Big hugs.

    Francesthecat, I am devasted to read your news. You did nothing wrong. The pattern with immune pregnancies with complications is growth restriction and babies being small and not such a premature labour so early. Nothing can bring your perfect little girl back but I want you to know from talking to lots of other pregnant immune ladies that we all stopped our meds between 13-16 weeks and when problems did appear it was much later on in the third trimester. You need to get some answers about your little girl and make sure they check your cervix. No words of comfort seem adequate but please know we are all thinking of you and praying for you. oxox

    Default It's a Baby Boy!

    Hi All, thanks for all the thoughts. Bub was supposed to come out yesterday on Monday but had other ideas. On Sunday after I got home from the supermarket, I felt a pop and then huge gush of warm fluid all over the kitchen floor. Then the contractions started so off to hospital off for emergency C. Baby Ryan was born at 4.48pm weighing 2.44kg.

    He's so tiny but perfectly formed. I'm pretty awkward and struggling with feeding expressing etc and still got epidural in - but wow magic this little wee alien is finally here. Thanks primarily to you ladies xoxoxoxo

    Francesthecat... oh I am so devastated for you and your partner, how very cruel and unfair and terribly, terribly sad, I am so very sorry for you... as everyone else has said, please do not blame yourself, it was nothing to do with anything you did, all you ever did was good for your baby and full of love... Doctors are the ones to advise you and protect you with their duty of care, not you my love. I hope your OB has an answer for you soon. Like Nidhulaine said, perhaps check cervix issues aren't a problem for you.

    The only thing I can think of which you may not have been advised to do is to keep taking a lot of vitamins and minerals through pregnancy as these drugs we are all on, especially the steroids, severely deplete us of zinc, magnesium, folate, vitamin C and other things that are so crucial... magnesium is especially important and so is fish oil for preventing pre-term labour, and magnesium gets zapped by the steroids... You could start to replenish lost minerals when you are ready, a good 3 months prior to conception is ideal, especially for zinc. I would also stick to your folate or methyl folate all through pregnancy as it is good for placenta health.

    You must be in so much pain right now, I hope you find a way to heal and to start looking towards a future with another baby. I'm so very sad for you, sending you lots of love xxx

    KIWI!!! Congratulations!!!! How wonderful, I'm so happy your baby is out and safe! I hope the feeding gets better soon and you can feel your legs again and stand upright shortly!!! Caesars are full on!
