Pregnant Mom goes for an ultrasound and is shocked to see only her baby’s tiny hand
Every wannabe mother would be delighted at watching her little baby snuggled safely in her womb during a USG scan. Unfortunately all Francesca Tomlinson could see was her baby’s tiny little hand. Baby Gracie-Jane was hiding behind a huge ovarian cyst the size of a football that was growing in Francesca’s womb.
The ovarian cysts found in Francesca Tomlin’s womb were a massive one that weighed 9 pounds. This was why the mom had a giant baby bump. The cyst had also been twisted around her ovary twice which is the reason why she experienced severe pain and tightness in her chest.
1 Doctors failed to act on the cyst letting it grow
Francesca was only 22 years old at the time of the pregnancy. She was horrified when she learned that her giant baby bump was actually a giant cyst. She was scared she might lose her baby. The cyst was still growing and pressing on her diaphragm and for some weird reason her doctors just allowed it to keep growing without taking any remedial measures. Francesca was eventually rushed to emergency one day for an operation in which the cyst was removed but she also lost her right ovary and fallopian tube in the process. Thankfully the fetus was safe.
Doctors told Francesca that she would not be able to have further children. Her daughter Gracie –Jane was born premature in May 2013. Surprisingly Francesca fell pregnant again even after doctors said it was impossible. When it was time for delivery, she insisted to the emergency crew that she be taken to another hospital where she delivered her second baby Amelia Rose.
