“but when I went to emergency they found I had another still there! Joy!”
That is a great story! Of course sad that you lost a child, but amazing that you still had a child.
When we went in for my wife’s first ultrasound the gal doing it paused, and then said something like “So, um. Has your doctor commented about how your pregnancy is going?” My wife told her the generic things.
“Well. Um - congratulations - you’re having twins!” Dad (me) promptly found the chair as he was fainting!
Several months later getting mom checked out 10 weeks before the due date as she had been having contractions (and had also been on bed rest for 12 weeks already).
Everything was good until I reminded the doctor “Weren’t you going to check her cervic?”
After she got her gloves back on and got my wife back in the chair “Oh. She’s at a 7.” Dad proceeded to faint again!
Funny what some folks will go through to give their unborn children the best chance at life that they can. (Oh - two girls at 3 lbs 2 oz. Doing great now at age 13!)
God bless you!!
Wonderful... you were twice blessed! My darlin’ darlin’ (as my hubbie calls her) is 25 and still a JOY to me and her Dad.
