My Miracle Baby

My baby girl....I never knew how much I was going LOVE having a girl! She wasn't even supposed to be here, but GOD had other plans for us. My husband and I have two boys, 7 and 3. After the birth of our 2nd, I started having lots of medical female issues. After almost an entire year following his birth I visited numerous doctors, had tons of tests run to find the culprit of my constant pain. FINALLY...when my son was 11 months OB/GYN agreed to do a laproscopic procedure to see if she could find anything. I kept telling her my pain just "felt" female, but she didn't feel really comfortable with doing a surgery if it wasn't necessary. I appreciated that, however my pain had become unbearable, I was willing to do just about anything to figure it out and fix the problem!!! I mean the simple grocery store shopping excursion, a walk around my neighborhood, sweeping, mopping or vacuuming the floor.....all of these things became impossible because of the pain I would endure afterwards.

So, finally she agreed...and guess what? She discovered my uterus had attached to 2 seperate places, my abdominal wall and my bladder and it was being stretched causing the pain I had been describing to her for nearly a year. So, she was able to cut it away and wrap it in a guaze to try to keep it from adhering again. This was probably a tell-tale sign that having any more babies should be out of the question! Well, God had other plans.....just 3 months later I was pregnant again. The doctors watched this pregnancy very closely. They were so afraid my uterus would rupture (I had 2 c-sections and the new surgery, meant weak muscles and possibly a weak uterus wall). I actually became pregnant with twins this time and lost one around week 14, I still have my weak moments when I cry about the loss but I am so thankful my baby girl survived and arrived healthy! But this girl....she is amazing! I carried her to term and actually went into labor the morning of my scheduled c-section....she was ready to arrive! It was an amazing time, an amazing day and everyday since has been amazing and so full of joy and thankfulness.

I came across this picture last night as I was uploading them from my camera and thought, "this expression says it all". She has such a great demeanor, personality and she is full of life! I love this girl and thank GOD everyday for her, thankful He helped her arrive healthy and safely. There will be no more children in our future, but my 3 beautiful kids are my everything! They keep me busy and keep our house alive! I LOVE my 3 munchkins!!!
