I am sitting with the father of my baby in the doctor's office, to see how the baby is doing. I'm not sure what to expect but I don't know if it's good or bad news. So far I'm been feeling nervous and honestly prefer being anywhere but here. When the doctor comes I start hoping there's nothing wrong, and that the baby is perfectly fine. “We couldn't find a heartbeat” the doctor said, “This means you had a miscarriage”. I couldn't believe that I had a miscarriage. “This can't be happening I've been taking good care of myself" I thought how could this be possible if I was following what the doctor told me to do to keep the baby healthy. I couldn't stop crying, I kept blaming myself and how I should've taken better care of the baby and myself.
All of a sudden, I felt this sharp pain in my stomach. I thought nothing of it because I have had false labor pains the whole pregnancy. As I gently rubbed my stomach humming my favorite song. “ You are my Sunshine” not even halfway through the song another sharp pain. I thought, “okay girls you don’t like that song anymore or my singing maybe something else.” So I eased my way out the recliner and decided maybe a glass of water would help. Standing in the kitchen it happened again, but this time the pain has gone across my stomach down my spine, now the pain seemed to be coming every 20 minutes. Then my water broke. Of course, this is where I begin to panic. I yelled out for my husband John who was sounded asleep in the bedroom. He came running like the house was on fire. Without even speaking a word we both knew that we had to get to the hospital fast. He asked,” How far apart.” I stated, about 20 minutes” with a long pause we knew we had to get to the hospital
It was the first Sunday of December morning when my father asked me to take some boxes to the basement, I had never been down there, as a kid I always thought it was scary, but know as a 19-year-old guy, how could I say no. I went downstairs with a couple of boxes, but could not find any place to put them. The area was a mess, so I decided that I would organize every box that was there. While I was organizing, I notice this one box hidden in the back, so, I decided to open it. Inside the box, there was a newspaper and a couple of burnt pictures. Therefore, I decided to read the article, I could not understand much, it was an 18 years old newspaper, but it talked about a burning house with two twin babies, It said that one had been saved with no harm while the other one was rescued later on with severe burn mark. It was a miracle that other baby had survived, they called him miracle Carlos, and his brother Richard. I stood there for a second before my brain processed
I woke up groggy and confused Thursday night. I couldn't tell where I was, all I could see were the bright lights. The first thing I felt was an intense pain shooting all over my body, all I wanted to do was move. I thrashed around in, bed kicking my legs, trying to
I was 33 years old on November 9th, 2000. My family was made of myself, my husband, Doug, my daughter, Haley, and our dog, Josie. Haley was only 2 years and 9 months old at the time of the birth of her new baby brother, but I wasn’t quite sure how she would handle not having all of the attention. I could tell something was off from the moment I woke up that day. To start, Haley wouldn’t stop crying from the moment she woke up. As for me, I was feeling sick, and was having a few contractions here and there. I was packing my things for the hospital because I was scheduled to have a C-section November 10th. Afternoon came and my condition was getting worse and worse, things got so bad that Doug and I decided we should go to the hospital. I was mortified because I just needed the baby to wait a couple more hours. I could not have this baby come out of the birth canal, my
One night as I searched for my mother, my dad told me she was not feeling like herself. My dad told me to let her rest that night and I could talk to her the following morning. As I started to wake up the next morning my father was sitting at the foot of my bed and informed me I’d be spending the day with my Aunt Michelle because my mother had a doctor’s appointment. I could not wrap my head around why I would not be attending this appointment but had attended all the others. Later that evening once again both my parents came into my room but this time without smiles. With a shaky voice my mom began to tell me she had been diagnosed with Preeclampsia and her illness was progressing quickly. Now with tears running down her face she continued
On March 30, as of three thirty in the morning, my life has officially changed. The labor pains had set in and it was time to have a baby. I had never felt a pain so excruciating in my life, and I thought that cramps were terrible, labor pains do not even compare. I climbed the stairs to my aunts room to let her know that it was time to go to the hospital. After watching her run around the room frantically she finally was able to rush me to the hospital. She zoomed through street lights rushing for fear that I may have the baby in the car and she would pass out. Had
During the second trimester is when my mother Donna, found out that she was pregnant with me. One morning she got out of the bed doing her normal routine and went to use the restroom where she then passed out on the bathroom floor. My father Patrick, rushed her to Florida memorial hospital in Miami dade county. She said that she woke up and Dr. Joeseph walked into the room, and told her that she was dehydrated and not getting taking in enough iron. Dr. Joseph then proceeded to include, as he handed her an ultra sound picture that she was thirteen weeks pregnant with me. She was in shock, because she said that she always knew when she was pregnant from having two pregancies prior to me there was always a sign but this time it wasn't because she was still having a menstral cycle.
“It was August 13, 2008.” My mom (Maria) said, “ 5 years ago when we were at our apartment my water broke, I (mom) was feeling kind of light headed, so I went to bed for a bit and all of sudden I could feel water near my legs. I thought I peed myself, so I went to the bathroom and all of a sudden water started dripping onto the ground, I then knew my water had just broken. I called your father and told him to rush over to the bathroom. He came in and asked what was happening. Your dad started sweating and you could hear the shock in his voice. He realized what was happening and carried me to the car. From there your dad drove to the hospital, Kennesaw Hospital.”
I knew something was wrong. The next two weeks went by with the exact symptoms; my stomach was in a knot, the smell of food made me want to vomit, and all I wanted to do was sleep. One afternoon I finally made myself take a pregnancy test. The faded second line had my heart into a million pieces. At seventeen years old I Brooke Nardoni was pregnant. As I was hysterically bailed my eyes out and thought my life was over. I ended up telling my mom the next day after school. We both cried what has happened but she encouraged me that I would do the right thing and she would be by my side every step of the way no matter what I choose to do with my
I recall all of us marching up the stairs when we started hearing cracking and thumps from cabinets falling over. We started to call 911. They did not answer because they were getting millions of calls from other people. My parents suddenly said we needed to leave the house. So we all scrambled down the stairs to the front door, my mother and me were the last ones. However, the stairs were muggy from our shoes that were soaked in water. As I was climbing down the stairs, my feet slid out from under me and I fell on my back, which shot a pain all the way through my body. I could hardly manage to swallow without feeling pain. Nevertheless, I picked myself up and kept walking. As we, all stood by the front door the water had come up to our waists. My father told us to stand clear of the door because when he turned the knob it would sling open very fast from the force of the water. When he did turn the knob, he was correct and it whirled open very fast. From all the water that gushed in, the water level rose about one foot higher in seconds. With all this water, tons of debris floated around the
When I awakened the following morning, I knew that my day was just getting started. In what seemed like no time at all, my contractions were once again very keen. Around nine that morning the nurse checked me and I had only dilated four centimeters. I was enduring excruciating pain. Never in my life could I have imagined that labor pains could hurt this much. My contractions were now in the hardest stage of labor and they continued to remain this way over the next several hours. The pain was glut. I could barely stand myself. No one in the room could tolerate my clamor anymore. I wanted to
The music is soft as we dance the time away. Dance the pain away. Dance all of the outside world away. He becomes me, as I become him. Our faces seem to become more beautiful, or least his face does. he tells me that my face does the same, I don't quite know whether or not I should quite believe him. I want to, I will learn to make myself believe him. He's done me no wrong so far.
First of all, found I was pregnant I was so shocked with weird looking expression on my face. I was nineteen years old with no type of financial stable, home, car, school. Actually in May 2007 I was had no signs of pregnancy, I eat all the time all day everyday so I was not thinking I was pregnant with baby in my stomach. I knew when I did not get my monthly visitor every month their was a problem. I went to the doctor and took a pregancy test. At home I was watching television, I was pretty sure everything would be fine I told myself that. The phone rang I ran out my room so fast to grab the phone I said hello. On the other end of the phone the nurse tells me is this, Tamika Thomas I said yes this is me’’ I like to inform you my gut began to twisted up she said the words that forever
