This post is really offensive following the original post. Just so you know, telling people their boob issues are not normal, then following it up with your lack of those same problems is rude, and the reverse of helpful.I'm in agony every time I breastfeed my twins, and your post in no way improved my breast feeding experience. At least the lactation consultants who also didn't help, by the way, tried to improve things.
Monkey!
Im ok. I was hospitalized again for several days with another hemorrhage but am home now and hopefully fixed. I was referred to a different specialist, who found something, had surgery and was sent home to lie around and do nothing. No picking up babies or driving or anything for at leat six weeks, hopefully no more near death experiences, etc., and then I can hope I'm safe. Anyway, thanks for asking, it's just been hectic around here.
Back in the hospital again with another hemorrhage. They are talking hysterectomy. I just don't know if I'm done having babies yet.
My girls were born at 34 weeks and spent two weeks in the NICU. I had a postpartum hemorrhage immediately after birth and was not permitted to see them until the next day, nor was I allowed to pump. The babies did well, though my milk supply was not great after that, but they got mostly my milk and some formula. I had a second, much more severe hemorrhage at 4 weeks, which landed me back in the hospital for a week and killed my milk supply. DH took awesome care of our...
Thanks for checking up on me, guys. I'm home now, with strict instructions to call 911 at the first hint of another hemorrhage since I'm walking around with a low blood volume. I feel slightly better than I did but really tired and not great in general. Scared this will happen again. Really scared. Thinking our frozen embryos might never get used and really sad about that, but glad to be home with my girls. Thanks again for asking, and thanks to Jane for the info and...
Thanks for the sympathy, everyone. Things still suck, but I've been moved from critical care to a room, so my husband can bring my girls to see me now. He brought them in today and I got to hold them and nurse, which did stimulate a tiny bit of milk production. I'm too weak to hold them for long, but it made me so happy to be with them for a little while. He will bring them again tomorrow, if I'm still ok to see them.The uterine artery embolization has stopped the...
Still bleeding, no end in sight unless I have a hysterectomy. Still in the hospital, no food since Monday. People touching me and looking at me and I can't even cry without setting off my heart rate monitor, which brings people running. My girls are a month old today and I am missing it, just like I missed the first day of their lives because I hemorrhaged then, too. And my milk is just gone, completely. Sorry to be a downer in this thread, but this has been the worst...
Guys I keep hemorrhaging. Today was the third time and I almost didn't make it because my veins all clamped down and the ivs that were in infiltrated. It took almost two hours for someone to get a central line in my neck, then I got five units of blood immediately and once stabilized tried a procedure that will save my uterus if it works. If it doesn't work I will need a hysterectomy. But the doctors and nurses seriously thought I would bleed to death right in front of...
Tear!
