AFP test has me worried
I am a father of a healthy 2 year old. My wife who is 37 and 4 months pregnant just gave me the news that our AFT test came back showing 1/50 chance of Down Syndrome. We are going for an ultrasound tomorrow and we are both worried sick.
We pray for health and happiness and hope you will do the same.
CholostasisJust wanted to let you know I had cholostasis with my first daughter diagnosed at 30 weeks and delivered c-section at 37 weeks. I am pregnant again at 35 weeks and have been tested for cholostasis and it has been negative. So there is hope that you might not get it again. I am still being monitored because of developing gestastional diabetes, and the history of cholostasis. But, I was scared to get it again and so far so good, so there is hope!

Preeclampsia took my best friend's lifeMy best friend died a few days ago due to preeclampsia. She was never told me that she had this condition. She was getting prenatal care, doing everything the doctor told her to do, she was only 34 years old and that was her first baby.
Baby was delivered early by c-section and she was recovering pretty good and suddenly she never woke up. Why did the doctor never tell her that she was at risk? Could symptoms pass without being noticed? I just don't understand why they couldn't save her life!!! or do something about it to prevent her death.
My little miracleI was 19 and my fiancÚ and me had just split up after two years and I was devastated. Needless to say the separation lasted for about 3 weeks. So when we got back together of course things happened and about 4 weeks later his cousin (my best friend) Erica told me I was pregnant, keep in mind she has 4 girls. I was in such denial but when we got the test and it showed positive I was amazed and it was such a rollercoaster of emotions all at once.
So I told my husband (we got married a week after we got back together) and he was so surprised. Since we had tried for a year and nothing ever happened we just accepted the fact that when it happens it happens but neither of us expected it so soon. So I spent the next 7 months going in and out of the hospital because of my blood pressure (I was pre-eclamptic) and they decided to induce me 5 weeks early. My labor went really well but I quit breathing a few times during it. And when it was time to push I was so drained that I couldn't push the way I should have.
So after 4 hours of pushing he finally came, they rushed him right out to the nicu because he wasn't breathing the way he should and he was put on oxygen and all kinds of monitors they found that he had a premature lung and pneumonia in the other. After about 10 days he finally got to come home (on Easter day) and it was such a blessing and he saved my life in so many ways, he helped me become a better person. And I never thought I could love someone so much but just seeing him the minute he was born I fell in love like I had never before in my life. So still to this day I call him my miracle baby, he is so strong and he has overcome so much this early in his life that he is my hero and my little man. So good luck to all and just know that you think you love something a lot now just wait till that one special person comes along, they will show you what true love really is everyday when they smile at you.
