I was 8 months pregnant and constantly vomiting. My daughter was 3 years old and I had realized my vomiting and feeling sick every day was making her very sad. So I only had 1 more month before I was going in for a Caesarian. I knew I was having a boy and was so excited . We had a little scare 3 months into my pregnancy because tests discovered more fluid in his neck which mean our baby could be Down syndrome but we got past that and we were so excited it was going to be a boy. One day I head out to the shop and return to find my hubby distressed and my daughter holding her arm so off we went to the hospital and yes she had fractured her arm as she fell off a chair . The next day we had it plastered properly and that’s when things got worse. I came down with a viral infection that had to fight itself there was no medication . I would cough so much that I would vomit anything I ate I lost 5 kgs and was in and out of hospital as I was constantly dehydrated . I could barely breath and lost breath one night. My parents and my in laws would rotate on a weekly basis and stay for a week to help us. My hubby had to work to bring in income and it was a struggle. I started to slowly get better when I then had hemorrhoids I could barely walk , I lived in the bath and cried day and night with pain . I then started vomiting up blood and it all became too much . I honestly thought I was going to die before having my baby and had to prepare myself mentally for it. My hubby realized and gave me strength to get through this difficult time and my sister in law was calling and messaging me to stay strong as I was about the give up it all become a bit too much for me to handle . My little girl was 3 and she was my strength. We were in hospital for a check up and she asked to go to the church in the hospital to speak to God as she sat down she said God please help mumma feel better and look after pappa and Baby I was in tears. Thanks to my parents , in laws , hubby, daughter and sister in law I would not have gotten through this pregnancy. I now enjoy life to the fullest with out family I would not be here . We welcomed our baby boy on the 23 rd of October and I thank god every day for a beautiful life and a beautiful day
