I found out i was having a baby at 8 1/2 weeks when i had to go into hospital to have my apendix out.
when i was 19 weeks preg, the doctors told me some horriable news. My waters have broken. I had no clue what he was on about cause i didnt feel anything. they did test after test and could not work out why, they have broken. They didnt want me to go ahead with the preganacy. i told the doc i am as there is a heatbeat and i am prepared for the worst....!!!! Every week i had to go for a check up and it was always bad news and was hard to handle, but kept my chin up....
26 weeks, i was put into womens hospital, and wasnt aloud to come back to geelong till i have 32weeks. it was the hardest time of my life. my family was in Geelong and i was in Melbs. i was told i would have to have a dry birth, or a c-section.
32 weeks, i came back to Geelong went on day leave with the partner (babys daddy). Went and seen the family. while at grandma's i was having pains and i told babys dad i wanted to go back to the hosppital for a sleep. Babys daddy leaves the hospital and by 6.00pm the nurses call him to come to the hospital. im in labour, i was scared dry birth OUCH.....!!! Thank god i didnt have the dry birth, baby got stuck and had to have a emergency c-section.
8.36 my beautiful baby girl was born, didnt get to see her properly for 2 days, she was rushed to melbs. she was a very sick baby....!!!
