Just curious if anyone else has a preemie due to HELLP syndrome? I delivered 31 weeks 6 days emergency c section due to this. What was your story/experience?
I found out I was suffering from HELLP when I started having insane sternum / lower back / right shoulder pain. They thought gallstone attacks.... A week after the pain started they put the pieces together (swollen organs, high BP, protein in urine, and blood levels abnormal) and diagnosed me with HELLP and I was rushed to a high risk hospital and my midwives transferred my care. I lasted 3 days in hospital under monitoring until I got another "attack" of pain (worse) and I was rushed in for an emergency c section. My son was born at 2lbs 11oz. Im feeling so much better now and my son, Grayson, is doing pretty well considering! He just needs to grow and hit those milestones in order to go home.
