Cameron was due on December 12, 1994, but the doctors decided to deliver him on November 15, 1994, at 35/36 weeks gestation. This was because mommy was suffering from Pre-eclampsia and baby had stopped growing. Cameron came into the world weighing 3 lbs. 7 oz. and was 16 1/2 inches in length. To learn more about his early arrival read on.
Mommy and Daddy found out on April 13, 1994, that they were expecting me. Mommy was excited yet nervous since she knew she had a 50/50 chance of having complications again due to Pre-eclampsia. On July 27, 1994, mommy had her first ultrasound of me. Everything appeared to be going great.
On August 25, 1994, mommy's doctor informed her that her blood sugar levels were up and she needed to have a glucose tolerance test. So the following Monday she did so and the tests came back borderline. The dietitian placed mommy on a special diet to limit her sugar intake and every week after she had a regular blood test called an FBS (Fasting Blood Sugar).
The diet seemed to be helping and mommy made it until October 19, 1994, before any other complications developed. Her blood pressure started to increase. It reached 140/90. Her doctor felt it was not too serious and nothing was done at this time. Now mommy looks back and wishes she would have consulted with the perinatologist that took care of her in the final months of her pregnancy with Jeremy.
