{I Am Strong} The Loss of a Twin

by Alisia on April 18, 2013

*Trigger Warning: This post is about loss*

I am strong because at the age of 32 I became pregnant with twins. I was super excited and scared at the same time. Early in the pregnancy I found out that Baby B wasn’t doing well. As I started getting further along I went to specialist to find more out. My Baby B “girl … Emma Rae” was diagnosed with Fetal Hydrops. I was told she wouldn’t make it past 27 weeks conception.

Baby A, my Boy Noah Braylin, was doing wonderful but keeping close eye on him as well.

Emma lost her heart beat at 21 weeks conception. I was heart broken. But I was strong because I knew I had a healthy baby boy still growing inside me.

I had to carry Emma full term to keep Noah healthy and safe. And on April 23, 2011… 5 1/2 hours of labor out came a healthy baby boy 8 lbs and 21 inches long. My 10 year old daughter was super excited to be a big sister finally!

I am strong because I know God isn’t going to give me nothing I can’t handle. My Baby Girl is cremated and sits high on a shelf. I think about her often, but am very blessed I have her brother here with me today.
