Much of my pregnancy was normal. I felt sick and needed to eat every few hours. I was so tired I would take naps.
My pregnancy became complicated and high-risk in September when I ended up in the ER with a severe UTI and was found to be in preterm labor. After that, my pregnancy was full of tests and a surgical intervention to place stents because they believed there was a kidney stone trapped. Then, I spent time in and out of the OB with wacky liver enzymes and all sorts of issues. I was referred to Magee Women’s Hospital in Pittsburgh for a consult, as doctors believed I had cholestasis. I did not, but I still needed a C-section to deliver Sarah, as I developed preeclampsia.
Sarah came into the world screaming.
