‘I walked to the bathroom leaving a trail of blood. I had an ultrasound. They found retained placenta.’: Woman endures difficult pregnancy aftermath, discovers son has a cow’s milk protein allergy

“My son was vomiting and having crazy amounts of diarrhea for days. As I was unpacking his daycare bag, he was standing beside me crying. Next thing I know, his eyes rolled to the back of his head and he passed out. I now have a 2-year-old with multiple chronic allergies and an 8-week-old heading in the same direction.”

‘BABE. Something’s wrong with the baby!’ He flew down the stairs without touching a step. I just screamed, and screamed some more.’: Mom loses daughter to SIDS, urges us to ‘live each day like it’s our last’

“Jaymie was still and floppy. I grabbed her and started touching her face, opening her mouth, looking for any sign of what was wrong with my little girl! I remember opening my balcony doors, seeing the air ambulance, and screaming again. The police entered my home and I curled into a ball on the kitchen floor as they announced the time of death. What the hell was I hearing? I wrapped her in her Peppa Pig blanket and just stared, hoping and praying she’d just look up and smile at me. But no. She was gone.”

‘Her worried look spoke volumes. ‘How much did you weigh before this pregnancy?’ My doctor laid a hand on my leg.’: Mom’s harrowing journey with umbilical cord not giving son enough nutrients

“’I’m sure it’s nothing. Some babies are just small,’ she said. I was beginning to make connections in my head. I had been 115 pounds before pregnancy, and was now down to 94 pounds. But weren’t pregnant women supposed to gain weight? ‘There is a blood flow issue. The umbilical cord isn’t working properly.’ I heard nothing else.”
