My Test Before My Testimony 🙏🏼 RepostBy @faithfulfruitfulwomen: "@okikimarinho shares her twin testimony on our blog. After loosing both her tubes to ectopic pregnancies and failed IVF attempts she now has her beautiful twins Nathalie and Nathan. Head to our blog to read the full story. October 23rd 2010 was a day of mixed emotions. It was our wedding day but I couldn't help but wonder how my husband felt. He had lost both his parents that same year. In fact his dad had passed the month before and was buried exactly a month before the wedding day. We didn't bother having a Father/Daughter dance segment as it seemed like the polite thing to do at the time. It was a beautiful wedding and we were excited to start a new chapter in our life. I remember thinking aloud that the worst was over.
June 19th 2011, I was feeling unwell and we decided to go to the hospital. A blood test was done and I was told I was pregnant. I couldn't contain my joy considering we only started trying for a baby the month before. A few days later I started spotting so I returned to the hospital and they said it might be a miscarriage. I was told to do a hcg test and a transvaginal scan. The lab technician asked repeatedly whether I was sure I was ever pregnant as he could not see any sac. I found the question very odd considering the repeated blood test showed I still was. I repeated the hcg test and scan 2 weeks later and there was still no sac, I was still spotting and the hcg levels had increased which normally indicates there is still a pregnancy. At this point the Doctor told me to go home and carry on with my daily activities. Apparently it was a miscarriage taking time to leave my body. I was told to conduct another hcg and come back for the results a week later. I got back to the hospital and the result was still not out. A nurse told me I would be contacted once it got out. That never happened. Another 2 weeks passed until one bright Sunday I felt an awful paralyzing pain in my tummy. I assumed it was the miscarriage coming to its tale end. The pain was followed by heavy bleeding. The bleeding continued for another 3 days before I decided to go back to the hospital... #ffw
