I wanted to share my stories of my pregnancies, one which is very interesting to say the least.
Pregnancy number 1: Rosie-Belle! Rosie was a surprise pregnancy, I was really young! Being 14 I never imagined that I would become a mum. I had periods through out my pregnancy (roughly 5 months) and when I missed a period I was scared. We went to tell my mum and obviously it through her back majorly. We went to the doctors and I had a scan, I found out I was 29 weeks and 3 days. I was terrified. I had 11ish weeks to get my head around the fact I was becoming a mum and I had to get everything ready. Time for the rush hey! We all managed to get our heads around it and the next minute she was born. I didn’t have a hard pregnancy! Obviously! No morning sickness, no weight gain till the end… nothing. Towards the end I had a small bad back. It was a crazy time!
Pregnancy number 2: Miyah! Me and Michael tried for Miyah! I found out I was pregnant at 4 weeks and that’s when the trouble started 🙃. When I was 6 weeks I started to get pain in my stomach, we went to get heckled out and I was offered a early pregnancy scan. When I went I found out I was 7 weeks (8 weeks because my 12 week scan showed different) and there was no heartbeat. We went back two weeks later and we finally saw a little tiny heartbeat! We was over the moon. At 8 weeks I got SPD, how amazing😏. I had my 12 weeks scan and I found out I was 13 weeks pregnant! A tiny little human, that I was growing. I was so proud. At 16 weeks I had reduced movements that was all settled within a day. At 24 weeks I was having contractions and reduced movements, the contractions stopped and I started to feel her move again. Phew! It doesn’t stop there. When I was hospital I had tests done and I found out I had group b strep, this meant I couldn’t have the home birth I wanted neither my second option of a water birth. I was heartbroken and I must have cried for about 3 days straight. This now means when I have more pregnancies I will need antibiotics in labour. At 28 weeks I had more reduced movements and I was kept in for a bit. I didn’t feel my baby move for about 3 days and then on the 4th day I had the biggest kick in the world. After that I had movements all day everyday! Nothing happened then till I was 36 weeks pregnant. For 5 days I had not felt her move, I was monitored and tests where done. I went home and a couple days after I was laid in bed and I coughed 😂 and my hind waters went. No contractions nothing but i had to get check out due to the Group B Strep. I was kept in over night and I was induced the next day. Miyahs pregnancy was so so different to Rosie’s! I had terrible heartburn backache and spd but in the end I had it was all worth it.
I am so grateful to have my girls in my life, they mean the world to me and I would walk to the end of the earth for them!
