“Our Little Fighter, My Little Miracle”: Mother Miscarries, Only to Discover She Was Carrying Twins and The Other Baby Was STILL ALIVE
A miscarriage can be only of the most painful experiences a mother has to endure. Michelle Hui was told that she had a miscarriage and was given drugs to cause an abortion in order to prevent an infection — but then something miraculous happened.
When Michelle Hui was told she had lost her baby in a miscarriage after six weeks of pregnancy, her world descended into a nightmarish blur.
After enduring five separate scans to confirm the devastating news, she was given abortion drugs to prevent any infection in her body.
Mrs Hui was then told she had potentially dangerous blood clots in her womb and would have to have surgery to remove them.
But as doctors prepared to perform this final procedure, a scan picked up a tiny heartbeat.
The astonished medical team told Mrs Hui that her baby had managed to survive both the miscarriage and the abortion pills — and she could continue with the pregnancy.
They said she had been pregnant with twins, and while one baby died, the other had clung on to life.
The blood clots could have created shadows on the scan images, obscuring the surviving foetus from view, doctors said.
In February Mrs Hui, 31, and her husband Ross, 33, welcomed their ‘miracle’ daughter Megan into the family.
Weighing a healthy six pounds, she has continued to thrive at home with her sister Mya, four, and brother Noah, two.
The Hui family still lost a baby, and Megan had a brother or sister that she’ll never get to grow up with — that’s a tragedy that can’t be forgotten. But out of the tragedy came a miracle, a beautiful baby girl, that shows happiness can come even out of the darkest of times.
