Showed stranged symptoms and then gave blood for testing. First round came back positive but repeat rounds were negative. I do know it had something to with liver or gallbladder but that was all that was explained. Told NP about strange kicking from baby.
Refused induction so long as everything was "okay", which I was assured it was.
Water had to broken at hospital by different doctor because my doctor was on a no call Sunday. Water was green and so much water it was called "unsual". After 12 hours of labour, had c-section by this different doctor. My son spent 8 days in a NICU and died 10 days later at home. Did sign a DNR. Cause of death on death certificate-anencephaly. Did smoke and wasn't taking vitamens properly. Always told everything was okay. Shame, guilt and anger.27yr old female. DNR was signed at neonatal intensive care unit. Was not placed or considered a high risk pregnancy. I do not believe my ultrasounds were viewed properly, if at all. My son was born January 8, 2012- died January 26, 2012
I'm really sorry to hear about this. I've handled a lot of these cases, and your feeling are very common but I don't believe they are at all based on reality. You are no expert, and if any mistakes were made, they are the responsibility of those in charge of your labor and delivery. A full review of your records, including the fetal monitoring strip are required in order to find out what went wrong. If I could tell exactly what happened from what you wrote, I would. But a review of the records is necessary.
