What were your pregnancy complications?

List your pregnancy complications. I'll start:
First pregnancy was a clomid pregnancy anemia and preterm labor at 31 weeks - delivered at 38 weeks
second pregnancy - preterm labor at 27 weeks with bedrest and oral meds, anemia, gestational diabetes, post partum onset (3weeks PP) pre-ecclampsia followed by ecclampsia and a mild stroke (also Guillian-Barre syndrome at 2 weeks PP, but that was unrelated to the pregnancy)
Now lets hear what your complications were

  • I had really high blood pressure with my first. it was just towards the end and i was put in the hospital once for it and they were going to take him by c section but it had went down some but i was put on bed rest for the last month. . and with my second nothing. I guess nothing too exciting, I had pretty good pregnancies.
    Sounds like you went through alot though.

  • I had GBS. The test was done during my third trimester. I was given lots of antibiotics during delivery. My son was born with yellow skin our jaundance. The confirm my son was healthy and good reflexes. Unfortunately my son was diagnosed with Autism after a reaction to a vaccine. He literally can't chew his food properly.

  • First: miscarriage at 6wks.
    Second: random spotting or heavy bleeding from 6wks to the end of 1st trimester, then miscarriage. Gestational sack was growing, fetal pole was spotted. Never heard a heartbeat.
    Third: DH says he remembers me spotting in early pregnancy, but I guess I blocked that out. Developed Pregnancy Induced Carpel Tunnel Syndrome (didn't even know that could happen! Was told could go away; did not.) towards the end of the second trimester. UTI and other issues of that nature. Gained 72lbs but I guess that's not technically a complication, lol. Horrible water retention and hypertension.
    Fourth: random spotting or heavy bleeding from 6wks to beginning of 2nd trimester, then miscarriage. Gestational sack was growing, fetal pole was spotted. Never heard a heartbeat.
    Fifth: Kidney issues in 3rd trimester. Hypertension. Carpel Tunnel issues.
