Mom to Drake

Lost May 17, 2011 at 20 weeks

Tipton, United Kingdom

I was 18 when I got pregnant. It wasn’t planned, but as the pregnancy progressed as every woman. I started to get excited. My pregnancy wasn’t easy and from 2 months I was continuously spitting and couldn’t stop; I had bad morning sickness up until I gave birth.

When I was 18 weeks pregnant I started bleeding heavily, went to A&E and everything was fine and they let me home the day after.

On 16th May 2011, I was 20weeks and I started bleeding again, so rushed to hospital. They checked for heartbeat a few times and found nothing. They then did a scan and told me there wasn’t any movement and that I’d lost the baby.

Six hours after, on the 17th May 2011, I was starting to go into labour. By 10.44am I’d given birth to a little boy.

We decided to name him Drake.

Four weeks later at the postmortem we found out I’d miscarried due to an infection that I’d contracted a week before. Nobody knew what or where it was in my body, so I was just given antibiotics straight away for everything.

Nearly 9months on, I’m having to deal with a cousin, now a mom to a three-month old boy.

All the anniversaries are approaching, but I’m getting stronger by the day.
