Induction to emergency section at 37 weeks 😱

i turned 37 weeks on wednesday, had a regular OB appointment thursday morning but was already having mild contractions and worsening symptoms of preeclampsia. my OB immediate sent me to L&D, i was on the NST for a couple of hours, labs were drawn and i was almost going to be discharged until my nurse came in and said, 'your liver functions are too elevated so we're going to move you to a regular room for induction'. my husband and i looked at each other shocked and an hour later, i was given cervidil, 12 hours later it didn't work because i wasn't dilating at all. then i got 3 separate doses of cytotec, still nothing. so we went back to the cervidil around 6pm thursday. i was already having bad contractions but toughed it out. also, i had a foley put in and was on bedrest so the only moving i did was side to side on the bed. at 3am i was in terrible pain, not dilated, the baby's heart rate waa dropping and it became an emergency situation. baby rafael was born friday at 3:31am via emergency section. it wasn't at all what we planned but it's what needed to happen for both of our healths and safety.
