‘My friend sent a story about adoption as a pregnancy test sat in the cabinet. My chances were 1%.’: Woman births healthy miracle baby through endometriosis, placental tumor

“Out of habit, I took the test. The faintest second line appeared. Shocked. Scared. Excited. Terrified. Were my eyes playing tricks on me? Was this for real? What if we lost this pregnancy too? I stood in the bathroom staring at the test for what felt like forever. After 4 years, we really were pregnant! No medication, no monitoring. WOW.”

“We were two high schoolers sitting in the front seat of a pick-up, planning for the future. Falling in love at 17, we made plans for where we’d live, what we’d do, who we’d be together.

“For some reason, I wanted to be a young mom–fit, fashionable, and in the prime of life. I was doing all the pregnancy math.

“The doctor turned off the lights and we looked at the screen. I immediately saw two sacs. Twins? My husband didn’t know what he was looking at, so he didn’t realize until the doctor said it out loud. We both started crying and saw both little heartbeats flicker on the screen. We joked we were going to get our money’s worth from IVF by getting two babies for the price of one. I never thought a miscarriage would happen again. I was wrong. ‘I’m so sorry, I only see one heartbeat.’ I just had this gut feeling that we would lose the other baby.”
