Do you feel like this was something missed during your pregnancy and maybe outcome of delivery could have been changed or avoided? I remember you posting in the multiples forum about being really short of breathe and other things during you're pregnancy... after your husband posted it made me wonder if there was something that was missed during your pregnancy?
I'm so glad they are here, safe and sound and you are ok and getting better! Both babies are soooooo stinkin cute! I cannot wait to meet our two after seeing your two!
I think that, looking back, my heart has slowly been failing over the last month. That said, I don't think it's anything anyone could have caught unless they were superfamiliar with the diagnosis. One thing that makes it hard is PPCM is a diagnosis of exclusion-- you only get tagged with it when nothing else makes sense. And all of my symptoms-- shortness of breath, pregnancy-induced hypertension, the weight gain the last week, the tiredness, peeing every hour at night, all of it could have been part of being 38 years old pregnant with twins. Too, in a strange way the PPH saved my life-- losing all that blood gave my heart less work to do AND it landed me in an OR where the on-call doc was a cardiologist who was also familiar with PPCM.
