Hi all! Just thought I'd share. So last Monday about 10pm I had this horrible pain in my abdomin (abdomen) that got progressively worse. I was 37w and had just gone to the doctor that day. I knew they weren't contractions because it was constant and the pain was not down below. The pain got so bad that I couldn't walk or talk. I was rushed to l&d only to find out I had what is called HELLPS syndrome. Inflammation of the liver that only occurs in pregnancy and the only way to cure it is to deliver the baby. So I had an emergency c-section. She was born Tuesday morning at 5:03 am 5lbs 11oz healthy and she didn't have to go to the nicu! I'm so overjoyed to finally have her here safe and sound!
