Hi everyone my Name is Malia. I have what is called an incomputent cervix (i hope thats how you spell it) A.K.A. weak cervix. What happens is whenever i get pregnant i need to have my cervix sewn shut through surgery and if i don't when baby reaches approximately a lil over 1 pound in my uterus my cervix starts to open causing contractions and resulting in premature labor. With that said heres my story.
My son Mervin who is now 11 years old was born at 24 weeks weighing 1 lb 12 ozs. Today he has some eye and hearing problems but other than that he's as healthy as can be. My 1st daughter Monique was born at 23 weeks weighing 1 lb 1.7 ozs. She lived for 45 days before moving on to be with our heavenly father. my next 2 girls were both born at 34 weeks the 1st weighing 5 lbs 7 ozs. and the next weighing 4 lbs 9 ozs. (idk what happen almost a whole pound in difference lol) oh btw they're not twins they are 10 months apart though. and my baby was born at 39 weeks yay was i sooo happy to carry 1 of my babies to term
