She's a having c section tomorrow, please keep them in your prayer tonight...

How to say Goodbye....

Well this unexpected but welcomed journey started in May of this year. Along with the rest of Facebook, I became pregnant :) Whoa! It was a BIG big surprise.... I was told it would be near impossible to get and maintain a pregnancy because I had absolutely no hormones. But none the less, hormones are no match for the Lord and this little baby's will to live and it just kept growing and growing.

From the very start it was a high risk pregnancy not just because of my depleted hormones but because of Lyme and Babesia and all the recent complications it had brought upon my body. Obviously this wasn't the best timing for me to get pregnant while still trying to recover from my relapse the previous year, but none the less we were excited and already felt like if we can battle what we went through after we got married, then we can get through this uncertain time and await this beautiful blessing at the end of it.

Every week I was seeing either my Obgyn or my High-Risk Obgyn. Every week from the start I had been given an ultrasound, so it doesn't take seeing your baby too many times to already start growing quite attached. I was thankful they kept such amazing tabs on my self and the baby, truly the most wonderful doctors....

Well when week 6 hit, so did the vomiting. You know when your at the beginning of a rollercoaster, and first the ride takes you up EVER so slooooowly to the top before releasing you into complete crazy upside chaos? Yeah, that was how the vomiting began. Once it reached the top it just went nuts!!! Very quickly I was diagnosed with Hypermesis which basically means all day, all night, literally 24/7 I was throwing up, bile. I couldnt walk, or even talk without throwing up. It was absolutely horrible, almost devastating to feel that intensity of sickness and to never feel it ease up for even a second.... Well since I have my own port in my chest and home fluids and really an entire hospital in my apartment, I had what I needed to survive, and we managed to get through the worst of it with a combination of 3 prescription nausea drugs.

 :'( this is why i wanted to share her story... sometimes alot of us mommies, need to be reminded on how blessed/lucky we are to have our babies breathing, running, playing, making a big mess in the house, and all other crazy things our kids do... other moms dont get to experience that...

Quoting motherinNH:

In my prayers. Whenever I get upset at the yelling, fighting, LEGOS, I will recall that this Mommy would give anything to have these little annoyances. I am crying. I am so ashamed of all the times I have been I wished to be by myself. I can't stop crying....

Unfortunatly he died before he was born.
She hadn't felt him move in 3 days and when they induced her they found out he had this.

She and my uncle split up a few months later.


Quoting heavenV:

 how long did he live? i'm hoping the baby will live long enough until the mom is concious from the c section...


Quoting redhead-bedhead:

My uncles son died from this 23 years ago. They didn't even know he had it until he pasded in the womb at 35 weeks.
He was born without a skull.

Can you please keep us posted about your friend? I want to know if her son was able to see his Mommy, and if was able to tell him how much she loves him.

Yes she did, she knew her son's condition, but she opted to carry the baby to term (the baby being in her womb, is what keep him alive, but he will soon die, when he is born)  

Quoting Anonymous:

I'm sorry. Just wondering though, did she have any other ultrasounds? You know... That a radiologist has to read that has diagnosed the baby with anencephaly? I'm not saying the doctor doesn't know what he's looking at, but only radiologists are licensed to read and diagnose from an ultrasound.

O_o

Did you even read it?

Have you no heart?

Have you never lost a child?

Really no big deal?


Quoting Anonymous:

They can always try to get pregnant again no big deal.
