The Birth of My Son

Told by: Anonymous

A year and 3 months ago I had a beautiful little boy; he was born way too early because I had an incompitant cervix.

This means my cervix is weak and can’t hold baby so I have to get a stitch put in every time I get pregnant. I went into labor with him on mine and my husbands wedding night.  It was devastating.

I didn’t know what was happening until they told me I was in labor and I could possibly lose my baby.  All I could do was cry and sit there and hold my belly praying that him possibly dying would not be true, that maybe this was a bad dream. I was in the hospital for three days trying to keep myself from going into labor with him for the second time but nature decided other wise and I ended up having him on May 21,2012.

He was 20 weeks and 5 days, he weighed 12 oz. and was 14 inches long.

To anyone who is married and thinks they can’t get through this together it is possible.  My husband and I are still married and we now have a beautiful little girl who has a big brother looking after her.
