Chelsea Pitman couldn’t talk. Couldn’t stop the heart-pounding, palm-sweating, limb-trembling response to her ultrasound. She was waiting for some of the best – or most brutal – news of her life. Would it be different to last time? Hurry up with the results. Quickly. No, stop. Stop, please. Breathe, Chelsea. Keep breathing.
When the news came, it was devastating. Chelsea had to say goodbye to the baby that had so briefly glimmered inside her. She shattered into a kaleidoscope of pieces, not knowing if she could ever glue herself back together again, in just the same way.
Two hours later she was rushed into surgery. The ectopic pregnancy – a medical emergency – had to end, but the surgeon cradled her dreams in his hands. Ahead lay the delicate task of trying to preserve her sole remaining fallopian tube, and with it, her hopes of ever conceiving a child.
