April 2012 I was 7 1/2 months pregnant. It was about 9am, my fiance was at work and I was laying in bed trying to get some rest. I hear someone knocking at my door. At the time I lived in a not so safe neighborhood. I look out the window see a vehicle I do not recognize so I ignore it thinking if its important or someone who knows me they will call or come back later. I lay back in bed and start to doze back off. Then I hear someone walking through my house. I hear the nursery door open and then close. My first thought is maybe Justin is home from work early. Then my bed room door comes open. A man I had never seen before walks in my room. My immediate reaction was to sit up and say can i f**king help you. The man looks at me in shock walks back out of my room. I instantly think okay I scared him off. No I was wrong. I hear him in my hall way speaking with 3 other men. My heart drops. All I could think about was the saftey of my unborn child. The man walk back in my room now with a shirt covering the bottom part of him face, he then askes if I seen what he looked like, so of course I say NO. I'm looking him dead in his eyes and say please take what ever you want but please don't hurt me I am pregnant. The whole look in his eyes at that moment changed. He told me to put my blanket over my face and to not look at any of them. They proceed to go through my house and take everything of value. I layed in my bed and just prayed as I felt my little one going crazy in my belly. I tried my best to stay calm as possible to not knock myself into pre term labor. When they were finished they put a pillow case over my head and locked me in my bedroom closet. As soon as I heard they were gone I beat the door open ran across the street and called the police (they had stolen my house and cell phone) the cops arrive almost immediately. A week goes by the police comtact me and tell me that they arrested the men who did this to me and I also found out that the same men who had broken into multiple homes has also raped 4 women that lived in some of the homes that they broke into. At that moment I realized that if it wasn't for my little angel far worse things would have taken place that day. I did end up moving 2 weeks after it happened. I just did not feel safe any more. Every day I still think about it. But every time I look at my little girl I just think wow you saved me.
thats terrifying!! glad youre okay :)
What a horrible event :(.
I'm so happy that you are OK.
This made me tear up. So glad you both are ok!
I had my door kicked in when I was pregnant. Lol. I live in a nice neighborhood. Sorry that happened. Did you have to go to court?
wow, thats horrible, im really sorry for what happened, but im really happy that youre ok
wow....That was such a sad story with a happy ending. It made me cry. Bless your heart and kiss that baby girl for me. Thank you for sharing.
Also you may want to put "trigger warning" or just "trigger" in your topic title, because it could affect someone else who has been in this situation.

They are still awaiting trial. There were multiple homes they broke into and people they hurt. The charges they are facing for just breaking into my home are Kidnapping(for locking me in my closet) Home invasion, Robbery of over $1,000, and endangerment of a fetus. I'm still waiting to hear back about everything that is going on. Its been a couple weeks since anyone has contacted me. I'm just happy that they caught all of them and that I looked out my window that morning and seen the vehicle they were driving. If it wasn't for that then idk if they would have been able to get them.
That is my worst fear. I'm glad you and your baby are ok. I hope they all get locked up forever.
Wow thank goodness it all turned out okay!
Oh wow. That's always been one of my biggest fears. I'm glad you weren't hurt though.
It was always a fear of mine but it's one of those things that you think could never happen to you. I'm way more cautious about everything now.

True...I am a rape victim and it brought back all those memories.... Mine was so long ago and it brought mine back so it could really bother a person who is not over what happened to them.

I am sorry. Didn't mean for it to upset anyone. I just never talked about it before and it really has been eating me up. How do I edit a post?
