Ali Fedotowsky-Manno will be opening up about the scary side of pregnancy.
In a completely new post shared on her blog, All Things Ali Luvs, on Wednesday, the former Bachelorette, who will be expecting her second child with husband Kevin Manno, opened up about a “pretty big pregnancy scare” which occurred two nights ago. If you follow her on Instagram, you may have seen her go live earlier This kind of week after waking up from the middle of the night with sharp pains in her uterus which just seemed to be getting worse over time.
“the idea was so extremely terrifying as well as I had no idea what was happening to me, my body as well as my unborn baby,” the 33-year-old reality star recalls. “the idea started out coming in waves just like contractions. as well as they were about seven minutes apart. as well as I KNOW contraction pain. I’ve had a baby before as well as the pain will be intense, distinct as well as unmistakable when the idea’s severe. I was without a doubt having contractions as well as I was absolutely terrified. So at which point I got out of the tub as well as woke Kevin up as well as told him what was happening. Of course he was super concerned for me as well as wanted more than anything to take away my pain.”
“I definitely felt which the situation was serious when I suddenly had the urge to go to the bathroom,” she adds. “As any woman who’s been through childbirth knows, when the baby comes the idea feels like you have to go No. 2. The pressure will be very intense as well as I suddenly felt which intense pressure. Once I felt which pressure, my whimpers turned into sobs. At which point I was absolutely convinced which I was going into labor as well as was going to have a baby at 26-weeks pregnant.”
Fedotowsky-Manno continued on, explaining all the terrifying thoughts which went through her head, like, whether she could have to spend months from the NICU, or if her baby could even be able to survive This kind of premature birth. the idea’s at which point which she considered going to the hospital.
yet while she got from the automobile, thinking about doing the trip to see a doctor, the pain suddenly stopped abruptly.
“the idea was the strangest thing ever. the idea was just gone,” Fedotowsky-Manno remembers. “I waited a few more minutes as well as went back inside. I was kind of in shock yet again. How could the idea just be GONE?! yet definitely, all I cared about was which for once from the longest 60 minutes of my life, I felt like everything was going to be OK.”
“I talked to my doctor first thing the next morning as well as she told me which the contractions were most likely via severe dehydration as well as possibly the pain was made a little worse via gas,” she adds. “the idea’s embarrassing for me to even say which because the pain I was experiencing was so awful which the idea seems insane to me which gas could cause something like which. yet I think the majority of the idea came via dehydration.”
Fedotowsky-Manno concluded the post by telling her fans which the reason she shared her story was to give peace to various other expecting mamas out there who may experience something similar, while at the same time raising awareness about staying hydrated while pregnant.
“Some of you which commented or sent me a DM said which you actually did go into labor because you were dehydrated as well as had your baby early — as well as sadly some didn’t make the idea,” she shares. “which will be so terrifying as well as so scary which I felt compelled to write This kind of blog post today … I’m opening up my blog today to all of you to share your stories as well as share tips for staying hydrated during pregnancy! I’m hoping which if any women are ever frantically searching the internet for answers at 2:30 from the morning one night in a similar situation, hopefully they’ll see This kind of blog as well as get answers.”
