The morning after I unexpectedly gave birth at 27 weeks, my doctor checked in on me and my baby at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). He said he spent the night in the hospital because we were both in critical condition and he didn’t know if either one of us were going to survive.
The doctor came in and told Trina that the baby likely had a lower urinary tract obstruction, meaning that he had extra tissue blocking his bladder. This didn’t allow urine to pass through, which meant that amniotic fluid wasn’t being produced to help the baby grow in the womb.
