More Than A Year After Her Husband’s Tragic Death, Woman Conceives Miracle Baby 

More Than A Year After Her Husband’s Tragic Death, Woman Conceives Miracle Baby 

Fifteen months after Jeni Bluett lost her husband Jim to cancer, the single mother was able to conceive twins through a special procedure called ICSI.

The 31-year-old mom from Wallasey, Merseyside was fortunate  enough to fulfill her dying husband’s dream to become a father even after death. According to Jeni, Jim desperately longed to have a child and they’re lucky to be blessed with one child each as she gave birth two twins.

The identical twins Lillie and Pixie were prematurely born at 23 weeks gestation. Sadly, the younger twin Lillie went up to heaven at 26 days old.

So how exactly was Jeni able to conceive the girls even after her husband’s death?

While undergoing treatment, Jim had his sperm frozen just in case he dies.

After Jim’s death, Jenni felt that having a baby with Jim was the best thing to do.

“Jim had elected to have his sperm frozen while he was going through treatment. So when he passed away I was adamant I was going to go ahead with the treatment as I couldn’t cope with him never coming back, I wanted a part of Jim so much with me always,” she told The Daily Mail UK.

The method ICSI, which stands for intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection, involves a single sperm being injected into a target egg. Once the egg is fertilized, it will be transferred to the woman’s womb. The process resembled IVF, but the fertization does not take place in a dish.

Unfortunately, her first treatment wasn’t successful. Still, Jeni was determined to have a baby with her late husband so she made another attempt in May 2013.

To her surprise, Jenni found out that she was expecting twins at the sixth week scan.

On October, Jenni was rushed to  Arrowe Park Hospital in Merseyside due to bleeding. For two weeks, the expecting mother was put on bed at a 45 degree tilt. She wasn’t allowed to cough or even go to the toilet due to her sensitive condition.

Two weeks after she was brought to the hospital, Jenni gave birth to her very tiny twins on October 26, 2013.

“They were tiny. I put a picture of Jim in each of their incubators so they could have their dad with them,” she said.

Lillie, who was 10 grams heavier than Pixie, died on November 21 since her digestive system wasn’t working well. She was cremated and buried with her dad in Effin, Co Limerick.

Four months after staying hospital, Pixie, who has a striking resemblance with her dad, was able to go home with Jenni.

“She’s so resilient she’s fought from before she left the womb. She’s just out-of-the-world amazing and I feel so blessed to have her and little bit of Jim and Lillie still with me,” added Jenni.
