Mom to Vala Faith June 2010

In the beginning of 2010 my husband and got a surprise when he took me to the doctor since my voice was gone.  They did a pregnancy test before they gave me any medicine. She came back in and told us I was around 6 weeks along. I was so happy but scared too cause I was bleed pretty bad but they kept telling me as long as I was not passing any clots me and the baby would be fine.  

About a month later I started cramping really bad and had still not stopped bleeding so my husband took me to the Emergency Room. They did a u/s and the tech just went Oh no softly and took me back to my room.  The doctor then came in and said my levels were low and the u/s showed nothing.  My husband said he felt that we were carrying a little girl and we named her Vala Faith.

After Christmas we decided to try for a baby again by January we got a positive. We enjoy all the doctor’s appointments getting to see our baby grow.  At 15 weeks we found out that we were having a boy. We were on top of the world. We decided to name our little boy Jordan Alexander. At 18 weeks I started having sever cramps my doctor sent me to the Emergency room.  The doctor there said I had a cyst and sent me home.  I woke up on Mother’s day 2011 to my water braking my husband rushed me into the ER where they admitted me for 3 days.  They did a scan and my fluid level was 0, but our little Jordan was still moving and giving the nurse a run for their money. When I didn’t go into labor they felt it safe to send me home on bed rest. At this point I was 19 weeks. I went for my weekly check up and Jordan’s heart beat was strong and he was moving higher up, we had hope. The next morning at 5am I woke with strong cramps. By 8am I couldn’t walk my husband rushed me back into LandD to find out I was in active labor.

At 11:12 pm May 14th at 20 weeks to the day our beautiful little Jordan arrived. The doctor told us he wouldn’t be able to breathe and not to expect more than a few moments with him, but he came out kicking and punching, he was a fighter. Even though he was breathing on his own they refused to do anything to help him since he was only 20 weeks. Jordan fought for almost 2 hours before his heart stopped. At 12:59 am May 15 2011 Our Jordan got his wings and left us here to watch over us from above. He weighed 10 oz and was 9 1/2 inches long but he was the most peaceful and beautiful baby I had ever seen, looking very much like my husband.  When I went back for my check up my husband and I got no answers other then they believe I have and incompetent cervix.

Currently we are TTC again and hope that in 2012 we will have a beautiful baby in our home.

    Rachel thank you for sharing your story, just like you my son Abel was born at 20 weeks 07/25/2011. I had a previous miscarriage last November and my daughter Abi was born asleep at 17 weeks. I was also diagnosed with having an incompetent cervix, which broke my heart, I felt as if my body betrayed me, but reading your story and of many others give me faith and hope that one day I will be able to carry a baby to term even if it is with medical help. Have faith and believe that all is possible, you and Jordan will be in my prayers. <3
