Ghanian Actress, Princess Shyngle in a lengthy Instagram post, recounted how she lost her baby to ectopic pregnancy.
The movie star said the incident occurred on June 27 — a few months after she had planned for her baby’s arrival. Shyngle disclosed that she began to experience abdominal pain and was rushed to the hospital for treatment.
According to the actress, on getting to the hospital, she was told that she had ectopic pregnancy — a medical issue that occurs when a fertilized egg grows outside a woman’s uterus.
Shyngle said the doctor also advised her to undergo surgery so as to avert the problem where “my fallopian tube will burst and I’ll have internal bleeding and die immediately”.
She said that if everything had gone well, she would have been delivered of a baby she had named ‘Angel’ in December 2021 or January 2o22.
The actress lamented that except for her mother who wept with her on the phone, “I was alone all by myself; no one there for me or to take care of me.”She left out details of the supposed baby daddy in the post.
Sharing a video on her Instagram page, the actress wrote;
“This is a video of me when I was so depressed and sad, June 27th, 2021 hands down the worst day of my life after celebrating for weeks and preparing for my new bundle,” she wrote.
Started shopping for baby clothes, shopping for maternity sexy clothes, planning pregnancy photoshoots for when my tummy gets bigger, planning a baby shower was so excited that my baby will be born in December/January and be a Capricorn like me.
Well God had other plans I rushed to the hospital because of severe abdominal pains I was scared for my baby and was praying to God to please protect my baby for me.
When I got to the hospital my worst nightmare came to reality the doctor told me that I had an ectopic pregnancy and if they don’t rush me in for surgery immediately my fallopian tube will burst and I’ll have internal bleeding and die immediately.
I cried, my heart was broken, I was like why me God why I called my mom immediately we both cried and she prayed for me so I was rushed in.
Woke up the next morning with the worst pain, stitches on my tummy, I couldn’t use the bathroom or even walk, I was alone all by myself no one there for me or to take care of me it was hard.”
Shyngle said she was depressed for days until she managed to overcome the memories of the incident.
She added that her decision to share her experience was to encourage others battling similar situations.
“But few days later I was tired of crying and being sad and depressed so I got out of my bed, showered put on makeup, wear a wig, wore my sexy lingerie and decided to take pictures and videos to uplift myself and it worked,” she said.
I named my baby Angel. I would have been 6/7 months pregnant with Angel now. I’m sharing my story today to uplift someone out there going through it right now, whatever it is don’t give up don’t allow depression to win.
It’s hard I know but just put your head up and be strong it’s going to get better I promise you just put your trust in God.”
The actress had filed for divorce from Gibou Bala-Gaye, her estranged husband, in April, after over two months of marriage.
