As I said, I have heard of plenty of patial abruptions, but no full abruptions. I experienced a full abruption in April, after being admitted with pre ecclampsia. I had pain all day and lack of foetal movement, but put it down to the fact that my uterus was solid, so I couldnt feel anything. Went to the loo at 5.10pm as I had felt wetness, thought Id leaked urine as my pelvic floor was pretty weak. There was a gush of blood and I pulled the emergency cord. Adrenilin took over so I dont rember much about what happened. The look on the nurses face when she came into the toliet and I said 'Im bleeding' which was pretty obvious with blood all over the floor. Another nurse pinning me to the bed, lying flat, shaking me to stay awake when I closed my eyes, yelling at folk to get out of the way as I was rushed down the hall to labour ward, trying to find babys heart beat, looking at the scanner monitor and seeing his heart beating. Then it dawning on me that I had to have a C section, which I am terrified of. I hate surgery of any kind, one of the reasons I dopped out.
Luckly everyone acted so fast, baby was born at 18.47 after a race to get a theatre ready (there were 3 emergencys at the time, I was the one who dying though, so I won). Interested in seeing it from the profesionals point of view though. thanks.
