hi,im new here and need help,it all started when i was 15weeks pregnant,i had a spina bifida test that come back really high,so went hospital for scan and they said my baby dint have it but had to be monitiored throughout the rest of pregnany (lots of scans)throughout the weeks i was told there was too much amnotic fluid round the baby,then it went,then my afp was 134 which is high and they dint know why,so i was monitored for that,then my bump was smaller than it should be,then when i was about 38weeks i was told my baby head and legs stopped growing and they wernt going to do anything about it,they never told me what was causing it and why she stopped growing in her legs and head,i went to midwife on 40week check,she said my bump should be between 38 and 42 cms, my bump was 32cm and 2weeks before my bump was 35cm so it had shrunk for some reason,she made appointment at hospital for me but in the middle of night i went in labour, her heart rate plummeted to just 30 when it should of been 100-110 so nearly ended up emergency c section but managed to get her out in time, she weighed 6lb 3oz and no tests was done on her which i thought they should have cuz of what happened in my pregnancy, she was just a few weeks old when she woulnt drink her milk,it took us litterally 3hours to give her 3oz bottle,so changed her milk and she was ok for couple of days then she wernt drinking milk again so put her back on the milk we started her on and she was ok,when she was 5 and half months i noticed she is not breathing properly so took her doctors and said she was borderline asthmatic,had to take her again a few days later and they said her chest and lungs was clear but told me to give her inhaler. since then her breathing has got worse i thought she was gonna stop breathing one afternoon so went doctors and she said her lungs was clear,i cant understand why she has trouble breathing yet the doc says she is clear,she has started to have, what i think looks like little muscle spasms they only last about a sec and its all her body apart from her head.they told me she dint have asthma but to still give her inhaler to see if it helps her breathing,
since i mentioned the spasms the doc said she is refering my baby to the hospital,she thinks my baby might be developing epilepsy but im not sure.
i really need peoples advice what could be wrong with my baby? please help,i would be grateful and appreciate it
thankyou for taking the time in reading this
