I Found Out I was Pregnant December 2020,, Nerves, Excited ,every other emotion that goes with it ,, doctors appointments ,,I never got a scan,, ended up in hospital twice in January 2021 ,,only to be told I had a miscarriage. Still no scan ,,only a monitor to check was there a heartbeat & after the nurse putting the monitor on for literally two seconds ,,she said there was no heartbeat Devastated as I was I went about my life !
April Easter Bank holiday weekend, Monday night the 5th of April 2021,, something terrifying happened to me ,, I didn't know what it was then but now I do ..it was a prolapse of the Umbilical Cord ..I rang the hospital,,I rang an ambulance,, at 10pm,, I got a scan just to check ,, I screamed & cried when I heard my baby's heartbeat ..I had explained that i had a miscarriage in January ,,10 weeks earlier ,, I begged the midwife's to take my baby out ,,I was 25 weeks so there was a chance my baby would survive ,,but I was refused ! So I was given a tablet to induce labour ,,and after hours, I was terrified to see my dead baby ,,I finally did it & at 5.25am ,,weighing just over 500 grams,, my beautiful,, handsome baby son was delivered,,Darragh. He was so Perfect!! After that,, it was just a blur ! I had 4 days in the hospital and 4 days at home with my boy ,, and then what I dreaded ,,the cremation ..I wasn't able to let him go ,, it took family and close friends to hold me together ,, The reason I started this go fund me page is ,,my son was cremated ,,but I want to be able to go somewhere with my two daughters & sit with my son ,, everyday ,,week month & year..
