When me and my boyfriend found out we was pregnant we was so happy we couldn’t believe we was going to have a little baby. Little did we know our happiness would soon be taken away.
When we went for out 12 week scan we expected to see a little baby and a little heartbeat as the women struggled to find the heartbeat our hearts started breaking. She was trying to get our baby to have a wriggle so we could hear it but no joy. We got sent for a internal scan and that’s when we knew what was wrong as she explained our baby had Amniotic Band Syndrome. Our baby was hanging out of the sac and the bands was tying all its little arms and legs together so it couldn’t move even tho it tried so hard 🙁 its head was covering its heart which was stopping us from hearing it.
As we got told that our baby could be born with no arms or legs we felt like there was no option but too terminate our much wanted pregnancy. I’m still struggling to come to terms with what has happened. It hurts everyday knowing our baby was trapped. I will never forget my unborn angel.
