I’m 21 years old stage 5 kidney failure. I’ve been dealing with this since I was 18 years old . Never thinking I would be able to get pregnant after finding out about my kidneys. November 11th 2020 my first angle was born weighting in at 3pounds . Her name is Kamaiiah Imani & was born with An Heart Defect where the left side of her heart wasn’t fully developed. I had only 3 months with my angle . & within those 3 months my life had changed for the better and I didn’t see anything changing that . On February 8th 2021 my angle child was sent back to heaven.
The depression was had & losing your first & only child is hard it’s lots of people who tell you that there sorry for you and that they understand. But honestly if you never went though it you couldn’t understand. Losing a child is like losing apart of you that you’ll never get back . It was one of the most depressing times of my life .
March 23, 2022 I found out that I was pregnant again for the second time with my blessing child . This pregnancy and find out I was pregnant was very scary to begin with just thinking & knowing that things could go wrong was the biggest part . I didn’t really have my first doctors appointment until I was 15 weeks . A lot of people might say that’s kind of long . But honestly just trying to avoid any bad news as long as possible. With Kamaiiah every doctors appointment was always sad . They didn’t have faith that would make it . & that was the last thing I wanted to hear .
Once finally going in for my first appointment at 15 weeks hearing that my daughter was perfectly healthy with no health problems was such a relief. Knowing that I didn’t cause Kamaiiah’s health problems and hearing I could have a healthy child was just a great feelings for me as a parent.
On October 1st 2022 I gave birth to a 32 weeker named Blessyn Imani weighting in at 3pounds 3oz . I pushed my baby out was able to hold her 15 minutes after giving birth witch was something I wasn’t able to do with Kamaiiah. Making this birth situation a lot more emotional. Blessyn Imani came out breathing 100% oxygen and not needing any help at all .
