A few days ago I gave you all a sneak peak at a little surprise. And by little surprise, I mean in the form of a 7lbs 3 oz beautiful baby boy.
In May 2013 I had a miscarriage after several months of infertility treatments. After our loss we decided that we should take a month or two off before we dove right back into treatments. Our first month back were were successful in obtaining a pregnancy. When I called my favorite fertility nurse, Meghan, she didn't believe me. She assumed by HCG shots where still in my system. To both of our surprise, I was Pregnant!!
The next day was my wedding anniversary and I was able to share with my husband our great news. What a way to celebrate love huh?
My pregnancy was awesome! I had worries of the horrible headaches, the nausea, and just the daily aches. None of that was ever present. I loved being pregnant, and actually miss it at times.
Because of some elevated blood pressure at the weeks went by, I was induced at 39 weeks. My doctor had a feeling that it would end in a c-section, but he wanted to give my body a change to deliver naturally. After an epidural, 24 hours of labor only to be dilated to 2 cm; only for my epidural to fall out and feel the most horrific pain ever, I was beyond ready to hand in the towel and ask for a c-section. They quickly wheeled me to the OR, gave me my spinal...and the rest, well, made us a family of three.
I can't wait to share with you how much our little guy has grown.
