SPONTANEOUS LABOUR AT 16 WEEKS
(Hectorpsruit, Mpumalanga, South Africa)
I was 16 weeks pregnent. At 15 weeks we saw the baby's heartbeat and moving. 7 days later I felt pain. My waterbroke after that. I did not realise my waterbroke and could not understand why I wet my bed and pants.
After my water broke I saw the baby's feet appearing and I realise I was in Labour. I delivered the baby, but the baby boy did not survive. His eyes had not yet opened. After that I was 6 hours in labour delivering the placenta. The placenta torn and came out in pieces which was very sore. Two times I nearly died due to blood loss. My husband guarded me and shook me until I came back and the first time I realised I can't die and have to fight. All this happened at home because we stay in a small town where there are hardly any doctors available in the evening.
With my first pregnancyy I was given a progesterone injection. I carried my baby full term and gave birth to a healthy baby boy.
