Am I Pregnant Quiz

God bless baby Callum

by Stephy

Well I seem to have had very bad luck with my pregnancies. I am 17 and when I was 15, I fell pregnant. The pregnancy was not planned but I was still so happy. I started bleeding at 6 weeks and lost the baby.

After than happened it took me a year to conceive again. In Feb. 2006 I found out I was pregnant and yes this pregnancy was un-expected. I went to the doctor’s for them to confirm I was 8 weeks pregnant. I was so happy. My partner came to all my antenatal appointments with me and we were happy that everything was going well. I never had any problems. We always heard his heartbeat, he was a healthy size and my scans had shown nothing other than a healthy baby. I was 37 weeks 5 days and excited for the arrival. We had brought everything we needed for him and I had my hospital bag packed just in case.

I rang up the hospital because I hadn’t felt him move that day and they said they couldn’t pick up a heartbeat so they took me down for a scan. Then it was confirmed I had lost our baby son. I was so upset and shocked. I didn’t have any signs at all.

it was 16 days before I was due and the nurses had given me a tablet that would open my cervix and make me contract in 24-48 hours, but I was already contracting. I was having him early. So me and my partner drove home and got my bag. By now my contractions were 4 minutes apart. By 10:34 pm I had given birth to him and he weighed 6 pounds 2 ounces still looked healthy. After I had had him they tried to find out why he had died and they think it was pre-eclampsia. My blood pressure had just suddenly got really high and killed him. We called him Callum Joshua and he was so precious.

Me and my partner feel so empty as it’s what we want more than anything. He has been laid to rest now and will never be forgotten. Thanks for reading my story.

God bless baby Callum.
