Comparing both my pregnancies Isaiah pregnancy was so Good I didn’t have a ounce of sickness, nausea no Nothing it was like I wasn’t even pregnant.
With my Daughter it was definitely an experience that I would never forget. Now, because of my past experience with the first baby you can just imagine what I was thinking plus my emotions going crazy from fear and etc.
Finding out I was pregnant again was a happy and nervous experience. When I found out I was pregnant I quickly made a doctor appointment at Kings County Hospital where I had my son as well. I thought it was cute that Me and my Boyfriend was both born at the same hospital so we decided to make our children be born their as well.
This time around I was more precious and was more informed about being pregnant and even what can go wrong during a pregnancy. Nobody never tell you anything they just throw big medical terms at you and then say at the end “Oh it’s Nothing to worry about”
I made my doctors appointment and I always made sure I went to them and if I didn’t understand something I always did my research on everything! Bad and good!
One day I was off from work and I went to use the bathroom the morning and I wiped my self and then again and I saw BLOOD you can just imagine how I was feeling like oh My GOD NO NOT again lord. That day I was at my boyfriend house so I dragged my clothes on quickly and put on a thin pad just in case it came down heavy &’ RAN to the hospital ER. NOW after finally getting seen at Kings County Hospital ER room. I told the doctor what was going on and they said “Okay we’ll do an Ultrasound to see what’s going on” The worst thing in the world is when the doctor is checking you and they are in silence. I’m watching every feature and wrinkle on her face every move or a slight adjustment on her face I caught it. Then ultrasound Technician finally looked at me and turn the screen and pointed and said “This is the baby and that’s the heartbeat” Let me tell y’all something that was the best thing that I ever herd in my WHOLE life because now my heart revived it self cause I definitely died like ten times on the table.
But she did tell me that the spot of bleeding that I saw was Chorionic hematoma it is most common cause of first trimester bleeding. She told me that if I see the blood getting worse to come back to the emergency room. It will reabsorb it self back. . . . The Hematoma had reabsorb back Yayyy.
As I went to my doctors appointment they ended up putting me in a High Risk Clinical. A high risk clinic is were a women that is pregnant would get extra care then a women that is in a regular care clinic. HIGH RISK CLINICAL is for women that have complications with their pregnancy, Loss a baby or if your above 35 years old. So basically after I got out of my First Trimester. I started going to the Doctor every week up until I have the baby!
The first couple of weeks of my pregnancy I had a lot of ultrasound to check on the baby and also my cervix especially because it opened too early my last pregnancy. They say that I have an short cervix / incompetent cervix. They wanted to see how it was progressing and to see if I needed to do surgery a Cervical cerclage it’s to prevent from having premature labor.
As I was coming out of my first trimester into my second trimester about 16 weeks my doctor told me they would try me with hormones shots to see how that would work! with me during my pregnancy.
16 to 36 weeks
So with the Hormones shots you get them in your Butt area starting from 16 weeks to 36 weeks. They stop at 36 weeks and let your body naturally go into labor. I had to go EVERY week to get my shots at the same time same day! To keep it consistently. In between those weeks I’ve had multiple sonograms to see how my cervix was doing and come to realize that the doctor said that I don’t have to do the cerclage because my body was taking the hormones very well. GOD IS SO GOOD. Also I was working less and relaxing my body more then my first pregnancy.
As weeks gone by I made sure religiously I go and take my shots even throughout the Nasty winter weather and days and plus having my doctors appointment and working. I was going to school as well but I had dropped one class because in this pregnancy I was a little sick and I knew I wasn’t going to pass that class at all.
As time passed I was getting bigger and heavier everything from my waist down started to hurt. I had turned 36 weeks and I was taking my Last hormone shot this was around March Ohh Boy I was happy. I already had left work the last day in February because the commute started getting to me, by time I got to work the bottom of my belly would cramp up so bad that I would cry!. The whole of March I stayed home and relaxed and got this ready for the baby. When I went to the doctor this was a week after me stop taking my hormones about 37 weeks the doctor said that I was two centimeters Dilated so I was excited because I’m like yes she soon be here.
Two weeks Passed and No Baby! I went to the doctor appointment because once you reach your Third Trimester about 36 weeks you have to go to the doctor every week! The doctor saw me and said “Mommy you didn’t have that baby yet” I said “NO!!!!!!!!!! I’m tired”. So she said okay your Misery is over! April 4th you will get induced. I was so Happy I been two centimeters for like 3 weeks.
But GOD is so GOOD I had my daughter 39 weeks and 4 days, 3 days before her due date April 8.
I was in labor for 18 Hrs. Pushed twice and my baby girl was Here! ❤️
