Hospital & Family Death

26 Jul

I’ve been missing for a bit because I’ve had one hell of a week. Let me fill you in. About a week ago, I had my first night alone in the apartment, so while hubs was playing a soccer tournament I decided to clean out the baby’s room that was full of clothes and our bags. I started with the bags, unpacked them, and put them away in our storage room. I then had one thing left I wanted to move, I had a box that wasn’t too big or too small, but very light, and I wanted to move it into the storage room as well. I was so happy and proud of myself for accomplishing cleaning up the storage room and the baby’s room because its been bothering me- I’m a clean freak, I like things organized. As I was walking to the storage room with the box, because it was wide, I didn’t see the counter top of the kitchen where it ended, so the box hit the counter, bounced back, and hit me in the stomach. Exactly we’re the bottom of the box was was where my uterus was. It was none the less a light hit, since I wasn’t going 50mph. I said to myself ouch, that was bad. Really bad. Nothing should hit there. I shrugged it off and said I’m sure it’s ok it was very light, but then I started feeling pain. Cramps. Shit. What do i do? I panicked and got in the car to drive to the hospital. As I call my husband he’s not answering, he’s playing in a soccer tournament. I get to the hospital, no blood, just light cramping. I try to calm myself down. I’m sure everything is ok. This is my miracle baby, Im sure god is protecting it and everything is fine. I meet the doctor, she seems worried. Started doing an ultrasound and we see that the placenta is as big as the baby, if not even bigger. She tells me you’ve hit the placenta, and it was a really bad hit. Not only that, she tells me that if I was in week 35-36 that they would deliver me, and now they just simply can’t do much. They have to check me into the hospital and keep an eye on me because the baby may separate from the placenta a day or two afterwards. At this point I’m in tears saying call my doctor, bring her in; and she tells me your doctor can’t do anything for you right now. What will she do? At this point I am just sweating and shaking, I call my husbands aunt to come be by my side while my husband finds a ride to the hospital. And for all I know, I’m just waiting to start bleeding or finding out in another way that this pregnancy is doomed. I go into my room and they start giving me IV and shots of progesterone and pain killers as well as something to calm me down. For I wouldn’t need to be calmed down if only that doctor hasn’t told me what she did! The next day my doctor came in and told me don’t worry about it, it happens…you just have to relax and the placenta should go down on its own. Don’t worry too much. Agh…I wish she was there the day before. When they called me down for the ultrasound my poor husband was sleeping, so tired and exhausted due to what happened the night before as well as due to fasting. so i let him sleep. i was too nervous to have him worry with me, i just wanted to go an see first what happened to our baby. We did the ultrasound afterwards and the placenta had not only gone much down, but the baby was playing and moving around. The clearest I’d ever seen it since conception. My heart melted! I really had wished at that point that my husband was with me. I was shortly released from the hospital afterwards and we went home to change quickly and go to his parents house to have Iftar (breaking of your fast). Once we arrived, still in pain from the hit, I was barely pulling myself together, we found out that my husbands younger cousin had passed away in a car accident while visiting Makkah (our holy land). It’s been a tough week. Very tough on both baby and I, and on Tuesday I will go in for another check up ultrasound to see how the baby is as well as see if we can have a clearer view of the gender.

    Crossing my fingers that everything turns out fine!

      Thank you for your sweet words! I’m glad it did xo

    My heart was beating for you as I read this! I’m so sorry, but so glad everything is okay. Waiting to hear about gender ๐Ÿ™‚ I have a prediction, but….hugs!

      Tell me tell me โ˜บ

      • Lauren August 6, 2013 at 1:27 am #

        I’m predicting girl ๐Ÿ™‚ I just have that feeling…

        My transfer is Wednesday. It’s been a crazy couple of days. Two friends told me they are pregnant. A third is having a miscarriage this week. Hard mix of emotions. I’m trying to picture myself getting a phone call with good news…

        How are you feeling? Is your energy level coming back?

      • bloggerkuwait August 6, 2013 at 1:35 am #

        So that is our super embryo…it took our girl fighting genes! I’m feeling like its a girl too ๐Ÿ˜Š
        I read someone telling you to POAS that morning or the day before, and I completely agree. I got my results 5dp5dt n you never know how early you might get yours. Those phone calls really play with your nerves, and I think you should POAS with your husband. If its negative, you get to grieve privately together. And if its positive then you’ll get to scream at the top of your lungs n have him kiss your belly a million times. I told you I have a feeling you will get pregnant, and now that the doctors found the problem..have extra faith. Pray, and be patient. For everything that is so beautiful happens in the time that is chosen for you. And I pray that that chosen time is on lucky Wednesday (one day away! ๐Ÿ˜Š)
        I am feeling much better now. Energy is much better. What they say is true..the second trimester is much easier (eating wise) than the first trimester. The second one brings its own aches and pains โ˜บ but that is still lovely.
        Can’t wait for you to feel it sweet friend. I have faith you will, and the love that you will feel will be endless. Indescribable. Amazing. You’ll be an amazing mother โค

      • Lauren August 6, 2013 at 10:02 pm #

        Just like her mama, I’ll bet! ๐Ÿ™‚ so will you try again? I’ve been thinking about you all day!

      • bloggerkuwait August 6, 2013 at 10:05 pm #

        Haha! We will just wait until our 20 week anatomy scan to find out. It’s no use to keep trying now.
        How are you doing? R u excited about tomorrow?!

      • Lauren August 6, 2013 at 10:06 pm #

        I’m very excited about tomorrow. Between you and me, I actually think this might be it. It is scary to hope like that, but still…

      • bloggerkuwait August 6, 2013 at 10:08 pm #

        I’m praying so hard that it is. Take good care of yourself and your little bambino…let hubs do everything around the house โ˜บ update us right away…I’m dying to find out tomorrow how it all goes. I pray it’s the last time you have to transfer for at least 9 months ๐Ÿ˜˜

      • Lauren August 6, 2013 at 10:09 pm #

        Oh I will! My transfer isn’t until late in the day, but I definitely will!

      • bloggerkuwait August 6, 2013 at 10:34 pm #

        Good luck my sweet sweet friend โค and goodluck to bambino…stick baby stick!

    I am praying that you and the baby are safe. That must be so worrying but it’s reassuring that your doctor said the swelling usually reduces.

    I’m also sorry to hear about your husband’s cousin. Death in Islam is a strange.. I can never find the right words to say to another Muslim because in essence death is release and going back to our Creator. My friend’s father passed away on Thursday, I said to her that she should mourn (she’s trying to keep strong for her mum and so she holds back tears) but she should also remember that his soul is on a very important journey right now and that we should be happy for him too.

    Make lots of dua, I am for you. Please rest lots too. Let your body heal itself.

      You’re so right. ESP this one wa difficult, he’s not an ordinary kid. He was a special one that has a special love for Allah SWT. It’s so hard to understand and grasp the concept that they are in a better place yet they are gone from your life. It’s really hard. Thank you for your continued support, you’ve become a dear and sweet friend and I Always look forward to what you have to say. Xoxoxo

    I’m so sorry you had such a bad and scary week! And I’m sorry for you and your husband’s loss ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    So glad everything is good with the baby! Can’t wait to here how perfectly healthy it is at your next checkup and I definitely can’t wait to here what the gender is!!!

    Much love, friend!!

    • bloggerkuwait August 6, 2013 at 1:22 am #

      Thank you honey! Well, the good news is that baby is doing fine…but was crossing its legs! Yikes!! When do we get to find out! Lol

  6. SM July 27, 2013 at 6:12 pm #

    That’s so scary! I’ve got my fingers crossed for you and your baby!

  7. Steph Mignon July 27, 2013 at 9:49 pm #

    Yikes! It sounds like you’ve had a hellish week for sure. Keeping you, your baby, and your family in my thoughts and prayers!

    That sounds absolutely terrifying. Hoping and praying for you and your husband and the baby.
