Johnny's story with Schizencephaly
I was 18 when I found out I was pregnant. When I was 3months pregnant, I had passed out at work and hit my stomache on a metal table. when the ambulance got there, they said my sugar was 24 (way to low). They got me to the hospital and said the baby was fine I had nothing to worry about.
2 weeks later, i started cramping really bad, I was rushed to the hospital and was told that i was probably miscarring but they decided to admit me over night. I was released the next day, and was told to go home and rest.. A month later i was rushed back to the hospital and was told that i was trying to deliver early, I was given medication to stop my contractions and sent home
I went from 4 months to the time i delivered my son going into labor and they always gave me medication to stop him from coming. I was put on bed rest at 7 months. Johnny was due May 19, 1999 and they finally gave me medication to start my labor on June 6, 1999 and he was born 45 mintues later...
During birth I had passed out, and finally the doc got me to wake up and pretty much told me if i didnt push my baby would die. So i pushed. When he was born he was white and had a cone shapped head. The doctors told me that he was absoulatley fine..
We got to go home within 48 hours of him being born!
He was such a great baby, he did everything early and was sitting up at 6 months and rolling over.. Never even thought there was anyting wrong with him!
