My 5th-month pregnancy tests revealed that there was a mismatch between my child's platelet group and mine. Without treatment, my baby would start bleeding inside its brain. I almost collapsed when I heard this. It is too horrible to even imagine.
This pregnancy is very draining, but I cannot explain what it feels like to want to help someone living and growing inside you. I need to take an injection every week and need to follow a lot of instructions to keep my baby safe. There is no more time for daydreams, I am too devastated. But no matter how cruel the complications are, I choose to fight for my baby. I am praying for a miracle.
I know I cannot afford this treatment. I know I'm taking a huge risk. I know I have to let nature take its course but deep down I also know that I can fight the battle. To prepare for a stillbirth would be to give up hope, to imagine the worst. I am a mother, I can't give up on my child even before it is born. If a mother doesn't fight for her child till the end, who will?
My husband is an electrician who makes just enough to feed us. He is heartbroken and is worried about me and the baby. He has no idea what to do or anyone he can turn to for help. But without a second thought, he told me not to worry, that he will do everything that he can.
I can feel my baby in me. I want to say, 'Don't worry, Amma is here for you.' I want to protect my child from this pain. If I take this treatment without any interruption and delay, my baby can be saved from a lot of pain and injury.
Your contribution will help my baby have a normal life that every child in the world deserves.
