As the pregnancy progressed, I needed more dosage of medicine to lower the pressure. At home whenever the pressure was relatively good, but it was just arriving at the office for it to be different from the usual. Once, she arrived at the 18 × 11 house and the doctor almost admitted me. He ordered the medication, and if the pressure did not drop within 1 hour, he would have to be hospitalized. The pressure dropped, and I went home but with many recommendations and many exam guides to do. At 20 weeks I did a morphological ultrasound that showed that she was a princess and that she was in very good health thanks to God. After that, we started to closely monitor the uterine arteries to detect any evidence of pre-eclampsia .
At 27 weeks I had an ultrasound that detected a small change in the left artery. But even so it wasn’t very high, I did blood tests to check the levels of hormones that detect pre-eclampsia and everything was normal. On the 32nd week I did a doppler ultrasound again and this time it showed that the change had increased a little . We were scared and the doctor left me to rest completely. I’ve been home since then and just go out to the doctor and look over there! I spent the whole day from the couch to the bed, from the bed to the bathroom … Anyway, it was a few weeks of rest, exams and everything. But I say that everything, everything was worth it! Every second without being able to leave the house. Thankfully, her outfit was almost done!
How I Dealt With Ending Pregnancy
At this stage I was eating normally, however, my weight was the same as at the beginning. Altogether I gained 3kg starting from the weight of when I got pregnant. Before I was overweight and feeling sick, also the lack of appetite made me lose 8 kg right away during the first trimester. So I think I gained 12kg if I add it up. When I arrived at the 36th week , I had a new ultrasound which indicated that the fissure in the artery was practically gone! And I couldn’t believe it when the doctor said everything was fine! At 37 weeks of age, she was taking the maximum dose of medication to control her pressure, and she was far below that before, there in the office she reached 9 × 6.
Dr Roberto Nogui calmed down, and me too. He said that we would have to see week by week as I was to be able to say how I would deliver. At 38 weeks I did a urine test as I was in a lot of pain. They looked like labor contractions and we were scared. The Dr once again instructed us to do a laboratory exam and when the result came out he found that I was really with a urinary tract infection. I took cephalexin for 10 days, I finished the medication almost on the day of delivery!
I finally reached 39 weeks and now? The birth in principle would be for the 15th of July, where I would be 38 weeks old. However, as she was in good health and especially Melissa, the doctor decided to carry on trying to reach the final term of pregnancy 40 weeks. And it continues…

My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.
Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
