HG Free!!! Welcome Aidan!

I am officially HG free.

Aidan Lewis was born May 2 at 10:47pm. 6 lbs 4 oz. 19 inches.

He was born at week 36. My HG got worse and we were talking about an induction, however, at my NST they did not like how his heart rate was dipping. They did an ultrasound and realized that my fluid levels were VERY low. Somehow this changed in under two weeks. I got ultrasounds every 4 weeks and non stress tests since week 30. I had been on bedrest since week 7 along with IVS, meds, PICC lines, TPN, and other medical stuff to survive.

The Ped was worried before we left the hosp and we had a checkup the next day. Sadly, Aidan did not improve and on Tues he was sent to Childrens. The poor bug had to go through a spinal tap and an upper GI finding a virus had caused his downturn. Lots of fluid and wonderful care, we were able to leave the hospital on Friday afternoon.

He's gained weight and we are trying to get my supply back up with lots of pumping and BF around the clock. He did not want to eat.. one of the big reasons for going to the hospital. We had to pump and feed with a syringe.
The good news, he's gained 4 oz since birth after a 1lb loss!

YAYAYAYAYAYAY!!!!!

Congrats! I'm glad he's doing better now - that is not a fun way to start things off.

But a HUGE congrats that you are done with HG! Mine is mild/moderate, and I am astounded by what you severe HG'rs go through. I can hardly keep my head above water...can't imagine what you went through. Enjoy some really big plates of yummy food! Smell some coffee! Jump up and down!

Re: HG Free!!! Welcome Aidan!

I suffer with HG with my pregnancies too (4 so far) but only until about 12-15 weeks not the whole time. You poor thing. But...congratulations!!! It is always worth it and I'm happy to hear how you both are doing...enjoy this precious time....and enjoy eating again!
