Title: Life just took a turn for the suck
Post by: KD8ESU on February 03, 2013, 01:30:58 PM
Let me preface this by saying that it's still happening as I type this, and I will update as I get information.

As some of you know, my brother's wife was pregnant with their first child.  I know they were excited for it, and I was excited as well; my first outing as the crazy uncle (and if you know me and shivers didn't go down your spine, you have problems).

Well, this morning, she started having severe cramps.  She had to go to the hospital, and as I type this, they don't know if they baby, or she, is going to be ok.

Clearly this is not the way anyone wanted this to happen.  I'm on my way out to see them in the hospital, and I'll post more when I can get more information.

Just went through the same thing, though not as severe as I am already Uncle Joe x2.  Hope she's ok

UPDATE:

I'm sitting at my friend's gaming shop as I type this.

I needed to get away from the hospital; never like them and probably never will.  I can basically confirm the kid is dead.

Courtney (my brother's wife) is in a hospital room in more pain than I've seen anyone in my life.  My brother is going in-and-out of crying bits because of this.

Thankfully, our friends and family have come out to support them.
I will send them the best wishes of the TCO community to a fellow Raw Dealer.

So sorry to hear.  My g/f's youngest daughter was pregnant with twins and lost both, it was really rough on her, I can't even imagine...

Hopefully Courtney is going to be okay...

The same thing happened to my sister and her husband on Christmas Eve.  There's really not a whole lot you can do for them, but it will eventually get better.  My sister had a terrible bout of anemia after the fact and I think she's just first back to feeling normal now.  Hope she recovers alright.

UPDATE 3/4/13:

Late last night, she went into surgery for internal bleeding and had to have one of her ovaries removed.

She's doing fine now, and is expected to be released from the hospital in a few days.  She'll have to end up staying at her mom's for a bit, as she will not be allowed to climb stairs.

This will also reduce her chances of becoming pregnant in the future.  Also, the doctor has ordered to stop smoking, eat healthier, and to loose weight (she's shorter than I am, but weights around the same).

It's hard to see anything good in a situation like this, so hopefully she takes it to heart and gets herself healthier. I'm very sorry for the loss though.

Sorry to hear about the situation. Like most of the posters, I had a friend who was 9 months along in a difficult pregnancy.  Unfortunately, a few days before she was to be induced, she had massive cramps and lost the child. As I prayed for her, I will for you and yours.
