Has This Ever Happened To Anyone Before

Jamie - May 2

On Saturday night I went from being totally fine to being really sick in about 20 minutes. I am 27 weeks and I was lying in bed when all of the sudden my legs started cramping up. Then I started to get the chills, I was shaking uncontrollably in about 10 minutes. I was so cold that I started to turn blue. My husband was putting blanket after blanket on me and I was still freezing. Then I felt like someone was sitting on my chest, I had a really hard time breathing. My husband called 911 and by the time they got me on a stretcher and to the hospital, I started running a fever. But, my breathing got better and my chills went away once they gave me oxygen. I still had leg pains and had the fever. The ER doctor ran a bunch of tests and found that I had an infection somewhere in my body, then they gave me antibiotics through my IV. Other than that, they could find nothing wrong with me. I feel like there might be something that they are missing. I am still really weak and tired. Any thoughts? They would be appreciated!

I cant say Ive experienced anything like that, but I know being pregnant draws alot out of the mother making you more valnerable to bacterias and sickness, all I can say is drink tons of water and be as healthy as you can during pregnancy.

poor you, like we dont have enough to worry about as it is. i find whenever i have had to take antibiotics it really knocks me for six for a few days and thats without being pregnant. maybe talk to your midwife about your concerns though. get plenty of rest. hope you feel better soon x
