Fort Lauderdale, Florida

I was pregnant with my first son in 2008 when my water broke at 16 weeks and I lost him. I was numb to the pain of this miscarriage, mainly because the people around me convinced me that I would get pregnant again and not to worry. It hurt me, but I didn’t allow myself to grieve.

I became pregnant again after I got married in 2013 with my second son. When my water broke again at 16 weeks, I lost him as well.

The fear of getting pregnant again and losing another child devastated me but we conceived again quickly after losing our son. We were so excited when we found out it was a girl. We knew the doctors were going to do all they could for her to be healthy and I did anything I needed to as well, including bed rest for my whole pregnancy and a cervical stitch.

Even with the stitch and bed rest, my water broke at 19 weeks. She hung on for 4 weeks after that while I was in the hospital on strict bed rest, but went to heaven to be with the Lord 9 hours after she was born. Her lungs weren’t strong enough.

Now I face even more fear but have hope that God will give me a child one day – despite what my doctors tell me.
