Justice Elizabeth Lee December 12, 2008.
I found I was pregnant the first time when I was 16. I was scared, excited and nervous. Everything was going GREAT
until the day I turned 19 weeks. I had to leave school early for a doctors appointment, I got home and started getting ready. That's when the cramps started. I didn't think much of it until we were in the car on the way to the doctors office. I was in so much pain, I was almost in tears. We got to the doctors office and I went to give my urine sample as I usually would, and I noticed blood, I panicked. I was taken immediately to a room where they used the doppler to find her heartbeat, it took a few minutes, but she was there and her heart was going strong. We then waited for what seemed like a very long time for my OB to come and do an ultrasound, I was dying in pain the entire time!
When we finally got the ultrasound, we received some horrible news. My bag of waters was bulging and the chances of keep me pregnant to a viability point were slim to none. We were rushed to the hospital via ambulance to try everything to stop my labor but just an hour or so after arriving my water broke. She was pushed further into the birth canal from the water, and my contractions stopped INSTANTLY.
She was born at 4:31 PM on December 12, 2008 at exactly 19 weeks gestation. She weighed a bit over 10 oz and was just over 10 in. long. Her little heart had stopped before she was born, so she was peacefully born sleeping. Not a day goes by that I don't think about her ♥ .
