Promise I'll Be , Promise You'll Be , Promise We'll Be Alright

August 19,2017 I was 6 Months and 4 Days Pregnant. That very same day I gave birth to my two beautiful Daughters. My pregnancy was different I had no complications, no symptoms, no weight gain . I was having pain that night and I went to sleep not know they were contractions. That morning the same pain hit me that morning and all I wanted to do was go back sleep.  Then the next thing I know I was packing some clothes called the ambulance and walked up stairs.  I gave birth To Kayleigh Rose S. In the ambulance at 5:58 am and then 18 minutes later Kaylynn Skye S. in the delivery room was born at 6:14. Knowing I gave birth early and knew there would be some complications I was scared I was crying I acted strong but deep inside I was hurting. Today September 19,2017 they are one month old (31 weeks) and they have no complications, they are 2lbs and some ounces and they are striving to be as strong as their mommy, THANK GOD , Many prayers was sent and they are still coming. Some people don't know the heartache of having a child and can't take them home. I come to the NICU EVERYDAY, I have no excuses not to see my daughters , I talk with them, I sing to them, This song Promises by Jhené Aiko  I've been singing and listening to this song while I was pregnant so it's familiar to them as it is to me. Can't nobody say I'm a bad mother or will be , ya don't understand how strong I am as a woman and now as a mother from saying that one of your girls won't probably make it to me getting on my knees praying to God that he will heal her to the best of his ability, I'm so happy that I'm a Single Mother and a Strong one at that. Thank you God for making it possible for be to even become a Mother to Two beautiful Daughters , That will look up to me as their hero , their friend, and their role model.  I TRULY HAVE BEEN HEAVEN BLESSED Now i have 2 beautiful one year olds and they adore improving in health and development.

  • Thank you for sharing. Your is very similar to mine. I was 6 months when I gave birth to my son. I really didnt gain much weight, I was however experiencing bleeding throughout my pregnancy. But similar to you one night I was having pain and I just ignored it because I thought it was just my cervix expanding. But they continued into the next morning and I also had some bleeding. I was in the hospital for about 4 days before he finally came. So much was rushing through my head, because this is my first child and I knew I was too early. But by the grace of God, he came with little to no complications and I am still here to tell my tale. He is now approaching 2 months and I am just so grateful for his strength and progress!
