The Toler Family

During our 12 week ultrasound, due to a high Nuchal Translucency, NT measurement, we were told that our baby had an increased chance of having Downs Syndrome or Turners Syndrome (if a girl). Then during an ultrasound around 24 weeks, the doctor noticed some abnormalities in the development of the heart and heart rate. We were then sent to see a pediatric cardiologist to focus on the baby’s heart development. We were also was sent to have a non-stress test, NST at Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies. Thankfully, we were given the all clear. Throughout the pregnancy, we were seeing both a regular obstetrician and a high risk doctor. The high risk doctor and his team were phenomenal and essentially saved our baby’s life. At 32 weeks and 6 days, we visited the regular obstetrician for a 33 week checkup with an all clear. The very next morning, we had a 33 week appointment with our high risk doctor. All measurements checked out but again the baby’s heart rate was fluctuating and declining. I was sent to have another NST. I felt fine so I told my husband to continue on to Miami for work because it was a long drive. After a lot of debate and hesitation, he called my parents to make sure one of them could accompany me for the test. I go for my non-stress test and my Dad meets me there. I’m there for an hour…no baseline could be established long enough. So another hour goes by, then another, and another…etc. I am told to no longer eat or drink anything in case of a C-section. An IV is started. My Dad calls my husband to turn around. The nurses give me the betamethasone shot, start me on oxygen and for the next 12 hours nurses came in and out of the room, flipping me to all fours, pressing on my belly, getting the baby to move around and settle. We were admitted, stayed the night and the next morning a team of doctors, and nurses came in to report on my night, and within the same sentence, they said “We got to go now!” I was rolled away, being prepped for surgery. They led my husband behind me, we exchanged quick words, not knowing what was about to happen or how it would end, and literally 9 to 10 minutes later, our son, Mr. Wyatt, was born. Mr. Wyatt weighted 4lbs 6oz. He spent 46 days in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, NICU. So many steps forward and backward, constant alarms, etc. Without the medication and technology today, our son wouldn’t be here. The March of Dimes focus on healthy pregnancy, birth and families is the reason why our team of doctors were able to detect what they did during my pregnancy, resulting in saving Mr. Wyatt’s life and keeping me healthy to still be here today, too. Please join us on Saturday, April 27th and walk for the health of moms and babies.
