Or something like that. I should completely be going to bed, because I am EXHAUSTED, but I wanted to continue my story telling before I completely forgot the things that I wanted to say in regards to all of it..............
So, I left off with telling my parents (and everyone on God's green earth) that we were pregnant. It was absolutely wonderful getting to tell everyone and feeling like things were going to be okay. I started this blog not too terribly long after that.
In November, we found out that baby was going to be a girl, and of course everyone was absolutely thrilled. Hubby was even excited, which I have to be honest, surprised me. When the midwife told us that she was 99% sure that it was a girl, the grin on his face was so memorable. I will never forget it. It wasn't long after that appointment that I was diagnosed with high blood pressure, so I had to see a maternal/fetal specialist for the rest of the pregnancy. Which was scary, but honestly was okay with me, because it meant that I got to see her at every appointment, because they did a sono every appointment.
The rest of the pregnancy was pretty textbook honestly, and since I already posted it, I won't go into the details of her birth.
I will however, tell you all that without a shadow of a doubt, the birth of my daughter was the defining moment of my life. It sealed for me that I was definitely meant to be a mother.
So many emotions surrounded her birth and continue to surround her in general. I continue to thank God every single day that He blessed me with her. We went through so much to get her here, and there were times that I was ready to give up and say screw it. And we nearly did. Something told me to just give it one more month....and I did, and she's 2 and funny and looks like me. :)
This was the day she was born...........................my sleeping beauty.
Her smile is infectious, and you can't help but laugh at some of the things she says and does....including when she tries to throw a fit about something, because 99% of the time, it's a completely fake fit.
Right before our girl turned 1, we found out that we were pregnant again....completely unexpectedly. And to top that, when we found out, I was already 16 weeks. Yep, I really could have almost been on that "I didn't know I was pregnant" show. Ha!
Well, this is all for tonight.....it's late and I need to get to bed. I have a pretty full day tomorrow, and I'm watching my nephew for my brother.
Have a wonderful night my friends. Until we meet again.
