Two days after my visit to my OBGYN, I started having this blurry vision. The next day everything looks peach black. I could see bold colors and bold letters but not the small details. I thought it's normal and just part of pregnancy as what I've read on Google. I complained it to my husband and he started to get worry. So he called our OBGYN. Unexpectedly, he was told to go to the hospital asap because the baby needs to be delivered right away. We found out that I'm preeclamptic.
"Preeclampsia is a condition that pregnant women develop. It is marked by high blood pressure in women who have previously not experienced high blood pressure before. Preeclamptic women will have a high level of protein in their urine and often also have swelling in the feet, legs, and hands"
So my husband rushed home from work to pick me up and drove us to the hospital. We arrived at the hospital and I was brought to labor and delivery room right away. Everything happened rapidly in that room. I just closed my eyes and prayed that everything will be alright. A few nurses and anesthesiologist were busy preparing all the equipments. I can hear that they're in a hurry. It got me more nervous and terrified.
Thirty minutes later, at 6:03 pm our daughter was born. She was sent to the NICU since she was born 2 weeks early. They found out that she had a respiratory issue and her calcium was low.
After my surgery, I was sent to the recovery room still struggling with my vision, completely dizzy and chilly. I also can't get my blood pressure back to normal so they gave me something that could help and lower it down. No progress at all until I felt that I couldn't breath anymore. I almost had a stroke.
|United finally after over 10 days.|
P.S I'm sorry if I won't be able to get back to your calls, texts, and messages for now. Thanks for understanding.
