Soldier Thinks Pregnancy Is Going OK. Once He’s Deployed, He Learns Her Ultrasound Changed

Mary and Jerry couldn’t wait for the birth of their third child. During the pregnancy, Jerry headed off for his deployment in the Middle East.

With her husband away, Mary was surrounded by the love and support of her family and friends. Luckily, her pregnancy with baby Sinclair was going smoothly and according to plan.

But at her 30-week ultrasound, everything changed. Dr. Alex Eaccarino noticed a small yet significant spot appear on the screen.

Mary was at risk of developing placenta accreta, a serious pregnancy condition that occurs when blood vessels and parts of the placenta grow too deeply into the uterine wall. The possibility of placenta accreta meant Mary was also susceptible to postpartum hemorrhaging.

Doctors told Mary that she needed a C-section and fast, along with a possible hysterectomy. Upon hearing the frightening news, Jerry flew home on emergency leave and rushed to be by his wife’s side earlier than expected.

After collecting a supply of donated blood as a precaution, doctors performed a C-section and delivered baby Sinclair… and it went better than expected! The surgeons agreed Mary’s condition wasn’t as serious as they’d originally thought, and that she wouldn’t even need a hysterectomy. Everyone breathed a sigh of relief.

But when Mary woke up from the anesthesia, her nurse noticed a major problem.
