Alyce and Jesse Brown believe their lives are complete after giving birth to a miraculous child. But once they’ve finished building their dream home two years later, a small surprise comes on the door. After IVF, Alyce and Jesse’s struggle to have a second child gives them hope and demonstrates that miracles may happen repeatedly. Before turning to IVF, Alyce, 31, and her husband Jesse, 30, tried for 18 months to conceive their first child. According to Alyce, who spoke to Mum’s. Grapevine, “I had an incredibly low AHM count (low egg count) and was informed during my initial counseling that I would definitely have one but it was very improbable that I would have two.”
They only received one egg for my kid, but to my astonishment, it developed into an embryo that was successfully implanted in October 2016. Harvey, who was born on June 28, 2017, is our miracle. Harvey, a newborn who grows up to be lovely, makes life so sweet. Alyce never used contraception again or kept track of her ovulation as the couple spent two years creating their dream house; hence, Harvey will be their lone miracle. However, fate had other ideas. The couple found out they were expecting their second child just one week after moving into their new house.
“Because I believed we would never become pregnant, I didn’t learn we were until six weeks into the pregnancy. We were utterly stunned, terrified, and hopeful that everything would be alright. As luck would have it, Alyce’s pregnancy proceeded smoothly, and nine months later, their second child was ready to be welcomed. I always take my son to Gymbaroo on Thursdays. I’m 39+1, and that day’s events made me irate and frustrated. While I was doing the laundry and my spouse was bathing my son, I had to ask myself, “Did I sneeze and some urine came out?” No, my amniotic fluid was dripping instead.
At 9:30 p.m., Alyce arrived at the hospital still dripping amniotic fluid. Alyce was only 3 centimeters dilated when the contractions began at 3 a.m. and got stronger throughout the course of the following hour.
“I was barely 5 centimeters tall, in excruciating pain till 7:30 in the morning, and needed an epidural. It was completed at 8:15 am. It was beautiful for the next hour and a half. I was crying again out of love and thanks that I was able to experience this new life as my husband and I sat on the bed and talked about my birth wishes and our son’s images. having two children to love and going through everything all over again. I was 8 cm at 9:15 am and by 9:25 am I was 10 cm and I started to feel the urge to urinate. The obstetrician was called down to the delivery room and I asked for a mirror from the midwives.
“The match began as the obstetrician arrived. With the help of the mirror, you can see how far you’ve come and how far you still have to go. As a result, you may adjust how hard you push and how you breathe. In the course of giving birth, I had two contractions and made eight pushes. I simply started to exhale once I could see the head, leaving the rest to our girl and my body. Unfortunately, I exhaled a little too quickly and realized where I’d torn, so I quickly undid what I’d done to my baby. I had to finish the birth after her head emerged after 30 seconds and the umbilical chord wrapped around her neck. When her head and shoulders are out, I can reach down and pull the rest of her out.
Alyce and Jesse have finally had their second miracle child – Norah – in their arms. Honestly, I’m so nervous about this birth because I want it to be as great as my son’s and it really is. I know what I want to achieve in the mirror and assisted birth but other than that, I have no plans to have a baby. I love them all and now I have two wonderful children to love and nurture.”
