I don’t want to talk about this as it reminds me of the pain I suffered due to two miscarriages.
You never forget the children you never had. Those lost in still birth or via miscarriage.
So when I learnt that my younger sister had preeclampsia I prayed and waited, hoping that both she and the baby will somehow make it.
It was not to be. Sadly an emergency CS had to be done as it was clear her life was in danger.
She got married at 39, sadly she had a Broken relationship later in life which meant that she met her now husband at 39. She got pregnant almost immediately but, she suffered a loss at 12 weeks.
Then began the 3 year wait to get pregnant again, just as she was about to embark on fertility treatment she fell pregnant.
We were elated and watched as she blossomed. She was diagnosed with pre-eclampsia at 26 weeks.
Her blood pressure had raced through roof. Sadly this affected the placenta as a the baby was unable to get vita nutrients. At 28 weeks no heart beat was detected.
Miscarriage It a very lonely and isolated experience one only spoken about once we have a happy ending.
I spoke with her during and after it all. She was heart broken and confused, she was almost there. This pain is like on other.
After a few days she’s starting to come to the realisation that she’s not going to be a mum this year, that she will feel a pang of pain whenever she sees a pregnant woman.
She’s grateful for the encouragement she’s received so far.
I told her not to give up.
I asked the Lord to help heal and give her strength to bear the loss and replace her morning with dancing again.
She feels she should have done something different, anyone who’s suffered miscarriage feels like they should ha e done something. .
High blood pressure which was over 190/120 is no ones fault I told her.
I am hopeful and pray that she will come through this somehow and have a happy ending eventually.
For He makes all things beautiful in His time.
