The Story of My High-risk Pregnancy

After my wedding, I came to know that I had a kidney problem. My right kidney was not working properly. Doctors had prescribed me blood pressure tablets as I also had a high blood pressure problem.

After some time, I found out that I was pregnant. But I had a miscarriage in the second month of my pregnancy. I thought it was because of the kidney problem. After 3 months of the miscarriage, my family and I went to a resort. It was summertime and everyone in the family was having a lot of fun at the resort. Suddenly, there I felt weak and had trouble even walking. My periods too didn’t come. I wanted to know whether I was pregnant or not. I checked once – it showed positive. I checked again – twice and thrice – it showed positive. My husband and I rushed to the doctor. It was a high-risk pregnancy. Almost two to three doctors said that I might have a pre-term baby and that I would have to undergo a C-section.

I was scared and I decided to consult my urologist. He was aware of my kidney problem completely. His wife was one of the best gynaecologists in the city. She was practising in a multi-speciality hospital which was great for patients like me who had a high-risk pregnancy. They both helped me a lot. They prescribed me different medicines. And my progestin medicines and high blood pressure medicines were changed. I used to have 6 tablets per day for my blood pressure. But every time, I went for checkups, I would get to hear my baby’s heartbeat. On hearing that, I used to forget my fear, blood pressure, and every other problem. My baby was growing normally and doctors would tell me that my baby was doing fine. When I was 9 months pregnant, doctors gave me the date for my C-section. My baby will soon turn four months.

When she was born, her birth weight was 2.5 kg. I suffered a lot, but now it doesn’t matter. I believe that nothing is impossible. We should trust God and be patient. Also, trust your doctors and appreciate them.

If you have a high-risk pregnancy, take care of yourself and follow your doctor’s suggestions.
