- Miriam Quiambao posted an update about the alarming condition of her pregnancy
- She revealed that giving birth to a premature baby is possible to happen
- The beauty queen also asked for prayers from her supporters and from netizens
Miss Universe 1999 first runner-up Miriam Quiambao is seeking for the help of her supporters regarding the worrying condition of her miracle baby.
KAMI learned that the Pinay beauty queen is pregnant with her first child even if she is already 43 years old which made her a subject of public interest.
Miriam’s husband Ardy Roberto already revealed through his post that there is a possibility that his wife will undergo an emergency Cesarean procedure depending on the result of her latest ultrasound.
The former representative of the Philippines in Miss Universe also admitted that there is a chance that she will give birth to a premature baby.
She even disclosed that the miracle baby is not at the appropriate size for his age due to an obstruction of blood flow and nutrients in her placenta.
Here is the update of the beauty queen:
"The Perinatologist says my placenta is still thickened and getting 'older' and calcified. This means that it’s getting harder and further obstructing blood flow of nutrition and oxygen of the baby.
"As a result, the baby is still small for his age, and is about two weeks behind in terms of growth. If this progresses, the oxygen flow might be compromised and it might direct all the oxygen to the brain to preserve the baby at the expense of other bodily organs like the kidney.
"His head has descended further down and my cervix is getting shorter. There's a chance I might give birth to a preemie.
"Please pray that he lasts until full term or at least 37-38 weeks upon delivery and that the Lord will create a miracle and sustain my baby Elijah without any damage until he is born,” the post wrote.
