I found out I was pregnant on June 28th 2010 and even though it wasn't planned it was hte happiest day of my life. Things went well through my first and second trimester. On December fourth I called the Birthing Center and told them that i wanted to come in and have my baby monitored because I wasn't feeling any movement. When I heard his heart beat and him moving around I was immediatly at ease. Right before I was about to be sent home my nurse noticed a sudden decreases in his heart rate and immediatley contacted my doctor. His heart would be beating at 140 then instantly drop down as low as 50. I was sent by ambulance to a larger facility that specialied in pregnancy complications and premature delivery. For the next three days Jonathan's heart rate was monitored and it seemed to stop decreasing. The doctor released me with instructions to count kicks and follow up with my doctor a few days later. On December 7th I got a call that my mom died and I instantly broke down. I cried for about twenty minutes andpulled myself together for my babies sake. I didn't want to stress him out. Through all of the funeral arrangments I never had experienced any problems. On Friday Decemeber 16th I went in for a follow up ultra sound because of a kidney that was holding urine. They called me that following Monday to tell me my amniotic fluid level was really low and they were reffering me back to the specialist in Grand Rapids where I was admitted before. The appointment wasn't scheduled for another two weeks and that had me furious. Alot could happen in two weeks. I called down to Grand Rapids crying and telling my genetic counselor I want to be seen as soon as possible that I was really worried. She was suppose to call me back that afternoon and never did. I went to sleep that night and woke up as usual around 5am. I ate some cereal and didnt feel any movement but didnt think about it I figured he was sleeping afterall it was 5am. I went back to sleep until 10am and when I woke up and still wan't feeling him move I immediatley went to the Birthing Center. My world crashed when there was no heartbeat on the monitor and I was told I lost him. I was lost, I never though such a horrible thing could happen to me. Why was my only question, what did I do? I held him inmy stomach until December 28th when I delivered. He was beautiful! Everything I imagined him to be. I went in for a follow up appointment two weeks later and was told the cause of death was Hemorrhagic Endovasculitis. Im still not quite sure what happened all I know is the medical term everything else the doctor told me was cloudy. I still havent fully dealt with my loss because Im crying right now! Aaron and I just recently started trying again and were hoping for the best. Is anyone familiar with Hemmorhagic Endovasculitis? I wonderif they would have delivered my baby when his heart rate ws decreasing would I have him today. This question literally eats me up daily.
