The Twists and Turns in My High-risk Pregnancy Journey

The Twists and Turns in My High-risk Pregnancy Journey

Last Updated on

Hi friends,

I am here to share my pregnancy story, the risks that I have undergone through it, and about my labour and delivery. I found that I was pregnant during the fifth week when I had taken a test with the pregnancy kit at home and it showed me double lines!

The next day I went to the hospital to confirm my pregnancy. They scanned my uterus sac and found that the fetal pole wasn’t present meaning I wasn’t pregnant. I was in a confused state whether I was pregnant or not. The doctor asked me to take a blood test. The blood test results came in and I went to the hospital for the doctor’s opinion. My HCG level was very low. The doctor then advised me to take complete bed rest till my next scan.

The doctor confirmed my pregnancy after my seventh-week scan. The sac and fetal pole were well developed. But again I had to take complete bed rest till my third month. My HCG level became normal in my fourth month. But there was another twist in my pregnancy! My cervix length suddenly dropped from 3.6 to 3.1. I had to take complete bed rest.

In my fifth month scan, the doctors found that I was pregnant with Polyhydramnios. The sac could break anytime and there was a higher chance for preterm delivery. I had to take complete bed rest as per my doctor’s advice. The amniotic fluid level had not decreased until my eighth month. At last, the fluid level became normal during my ninth month. Finally, my labour pains started and my water broke.

Another twist was waiting for me in the labour room. I had never excepted it till my third trimester and none of them found out that was having a low lying placenta. It’s was terrible during my labour pain. After a lot of pain, twists and turns, finally, I received my baby in my arms. My parenthood journey began at that point.
