I am married since last 5 years. Lost pregnancies previously due to major complications. 1. Partial mole 2. Spina bifida 3. Missed miscarriage. I was working and staying in Dubai with my husband. I decided to come back to India due to medical reasons as I have lost trust in Doctors in Dubai. I came back to India in 2017 April and visited various doctors however all my reports were normal. Finally some one recommended me to a brilliant doctor in Fortis Gurgaon. I started visiting her and by second appointment she said my blood is thick and that was the reason of my previous pregnancy losses. She just asked me to start with double dose of folic acid so that my levels can come to normal. It took around 6 months for levels to get stable.
And soon after that she gave us a go ahead to plan a pregnancy. January 2018 we found a positive sign. And it was just a beginning of what was there in our pregnancy period this time. February 2018 she put me on daily dose of clexane injections till one day before my delivery. And this was not it. The complications begin and were endless: at first radiologist could not find the fetus in womb then in the next well being scan she said its placenta previa which came to normal in 3 weeks time after complete bed rest. Then they found there was a band in my placenta which was making it bilobbed. Then my own heartbeat was increasing every now and then. I was recommended to a cardiologist. All tests came normal and we found it was just anxiety and stress. Then my blood sugar levels were on higher side because of which i was put on strict diet. Then my blood pressure was fluctuating. Then towards 30 weeks docter said baby is llittle big in size which was a matter of concern. Again different boosters were inserted. Last but not the least i had endometrial cyst. And in my 35 week scan they found double cord around baby’s neck because of which an emergency C-section was done on the same day. Finally I got to see my baby. But again they took her away from me and said baby have trouble in breathing. She was in Neonatal Intensive Care Unit for 8 days. I really thank my doctor who handled my case so well and my baby who was strong enough to bear all this.
