Mom to Baby Boy, Stillborn in the 7th month of pregnancy
and Baby Girl, Stillborn at 26 weeks
My name is Elvisay Vazquez, 51 years old, and I have lost two babies in stillbirth.
One happened when I was 25 years old, and at 7th month pregnancy. His heart stopped and the doctor didn’t say why it happened. Then I changed to another doctor, got pregnant again and had a boy, with a very tough treatment of heparin during 6 months, twice a day and a lot of stress. He was born perfectly, with no problems at all, thanks God!. Now he is 24 years old.
But when he was 8 years old, I decided to have another baby, thinking that everything was going to be ok. I already moved to USA, that was in 1995. I got pregnant with a baby girl but when I was 26 weeks her heart stopped…And I had to have another C section. Devastated?. Yes. Upset?. Very much. I always wanted to have a girl, that was my dream!. But it couldn’t be, so my husband and I decided not to try anymore and keep busy with raising my awesome boy, who it became my everything!. He is the best boy in the world (I know every mother say the same thing!!) and I couldn’t ask for more. And he is going to be a Lawyer!!!
