Hello, my name is Krystin & I have quite an interesting story to share!!
On June 11th of this year I woke up at 5:30AM with severe cramps. I sat at home by myself trying everything I could to make them go away...NOTHING was working. So at 10:30AM I left my house and drove to my fiancee's work (my mom works there too) and sat with them for the day. At 11:30 I decided there was no way I was going to work and called off. I went out for lunch with my mom around 1 and at 3 decided I needed to go to the doctor that my cramps were to severe to deal with anymore. At 5PM me and my fiancee went to the doctor where I was informed I was pregnant!! They guessed that I was somewhere around 5 months, so they called me in some prenatal vitamins and sent me home. As we walked to my car, the doctor came running outside to inform me she had forgotten about the cramps & I should go to the hospital. So we get to the hospital around 7:30 and I am taken right up to labor and delivery. They put me in an exam room and keep me there for 30min. At about 8PM my mom gets there and I explain what the doctor had told me and that she had sent me there. A nurse then comes in and asks how far along I am and for the 6th time we tell her we arent 100% sure. After my mom gets stern with her she gives me an internal 50min after I get there for cramps, clearly they didnt realise how severe it was. So she checks me and I was 5cm dialated. They put me into my own room and ran around getting information, trying to determine how far along I was and how the baby was coming out. At 11:21PM I recieved my epidural, at 11:30 they checked me and I was at 6cm. My mom left the room at 11:45 to talk to family members and at 11:50 I was at 10 and desperately needed to push. At 12AM the doctor got there and I gave birth to my daughter Jocelyn Ezmae at 12:19AM.
She was 6lb 7oz 19in long and was perfectly healthy!! I had the GBS infection but was treated with some antibiotic so it wasnt that serious but we did have to stay an extra day at the hospital to make sure she wasnt exposed.
She is now 6 weeks old and she is the best thing to ever happen to me. I wouldn't trade her for anything!!! I am now a very firm believer that things happen for a reason!!
So how did I not know I was pregnant??
I had my cycle all 9months, I only gained 10 pounds, I had no morning sickness or heartburn, my feet swelled a little but I though that was from walking at work a lot. The biggest thing is that I carried her in my back and I wasnt a twig so I never felt her move & if I did I was told I would have mistaked it as gas.
Quite a story isnt it!!!
