I had actual H1N1 case of moderate severity. High respiratory rates, my heart rate into the 160s an 170s straight for a day and a half until the tamiflu kicked in.
One of my twins probably died because of it (early 2nd trimester.) My surviving baby was born about 2 months ago with a suspected placental abruption in process (30-45 minute labor, severe pain, baby panicked 5 minutes before birth and was born with initial apgar 3, placenta followed baby very quickly with a big clot after), and she was diagnosed with pneumonia or pneumitis. Either way, that was 10 days in NICU, 1 on a respirator, 1 day going down on the oxygen and 10 days of IV antibiotics for her lung stuff. We're all doing fine now, but this was an absolutely bizarre situation.
Very very mild post partum bleeding over here, but I had active management of 3rd stage (at my request) although the placenta came before we could do the shot of pit!
My verdict? This virus is very bad news.
