It’s amazing how life can go from being “perfect” to a huge struggle!
Before I had my children, I was happy, healthy and free.
But things changed.
I fell pregnant, the pregnancy was a breeze, I was still happy and healthy.
But then there was the labour.
I was in labour for 3 days (Weds-Fri), it was going perfectly well, but the pain of the contractions started to fully kick in. I had the epidural, which clipped my nerve.
My son came out with his arm above his heard, tearing me internally and externally, causing x2 4th degree tears and over 50 stitches + staples.
3 days after the birth, I has leaking stomach fluids and off all things my stools were coming out of my front!
I was rushed to the Royal Melbourne hospital and had to have a colostomy bag at the age of 17.
After all of that, I fell pregnant again, the doctors put me up as high risk, tried to force an abortion and pretty much kill my unborn child.
I didn’t allow it, I went through with the pregnancy.
He was pushing on my bowels, causing trouble with the colostomy and I had nearly died multiple times throughout the pregnancy.
But I soldiered on.
He was born at 38+5 weeks via c-section.
To this day, I have had major health issues and am at risk with every single thing I do.
I’m not even able to pick up my children (now 2 & 5).
It is depressing.
Take life seriously, be cautious, but will be happy!
