Pregnancy is a blessing. Some couples try for years to have a baby and some couples manage to have a baby very quickly. However, the beauty of a pregnancy is that it is so unpredictable. We can never know exactly when we will have a baby.
Hollie Walls did not expect to be pregnant, because the doctors told her that she had fertility problems, but the miracle happened. She had two surgeries in the past to remove a large mass from her uterus, so she was afraid she would not be able to give birth.
She already had two sons from her first marriage, but she and her current husband wanted a child together.
She said she was shocked when she saw two lines on the pregnancy test, especially after so many tests that were negative. She did not think the test was correct because she had been told that she would not be able to conceive naturally, which is why at first she did not tell her husband that the pregnancy test was positive because she did not want to disappoint him.
Fortunately, the pregnancy went very well and every ultrasound was perfect, as were Hollie’s tests.
She said her due date came and went, and in week 41 she went to the doctor for a consultation to see if everything was okay because it looked like the baby didn’t want to come on his own. The doctor wanted to do an ultrasound to make sure everything was fine, but Hollie saw from the doctor’s face that something was not as it should be. The doctor told him he couldn’t find any amniotic fluid. Then, Hollie was very scared because until that moment she had no clue that something was wrong.
Hollie was diagnosed with Oligohydramnios, a condition she had never heard of.
Hollie immediately left the doctor’s office and went to the hospital where she had several tests and a new ultrasound. There it was seen that she had a little amniotic fluid, but she had a small amount and she calmed down. The baby looked very healthy on ultrasound, and her heart was beating properly, so she was scheduled to give birth in 3 days.
The day before the appointment, the baby moved a lot, but the movements felt different. Her mother’s intuition told Hollie she had to go to the hospital immediately. When she got to the hospital, everyone asked her all sorts of things about the pregnancy, and then a nurse pressed the emergency button. At that moment, several doctors arrived at Hollie’s room.
The baby’s heart rate was dropping and then accelerating, so it was decided that a c-section was needed.
