Lacy

July 20, 2006

Before I got pregnant, I never relaized that making a baby was going to be so difficult. I went into the ER at 19 week pregnant only to find out that I would need my gallbladder out in a few hours. I didnt even know that could do surgery on you if you were pregnant. We were very scared for her, but the doctors did a great job! we had 2 more L&D scares, and a week of seeing specialists to check for a tumor on her heart, Katelyn Sara arrived November 5th, 2005 at 9:45am. She was almost exactly a month early. The doctors had to take her early because her fluid was reaching the dangerously low range. The c-section went fabulous, and Katey only had to spend 28 hours in the NICU. After all our pregnancy drama and scares with her heart, she came out just perfect. Weighing in at 6lbs and measuring 19.5″
Thank goodness that God answers prayers and delivers miracles.

this one is of my belly at 36 weeks, it also happens to be the night before she was born.

The best scars a woman can have are the ones she bears for her child!

    I had to have an emergency lap chole (gall bladder taken out) when my son was 3 weeks old (which was 1 week before christmas 2005). I also had a csection to deliver him which was my second csection. My belly looked like a war zone! So, I know how you feel with a belly full of scars but I have to say I love your last comment! Your scars are looking good. :)

    Your pregnant belly was so cute! I didn’t get to see what my really pregnant belly would look like last time (I delivered at 30 wks and still had mostly the pregnant pooch) but we’re hoping I’ll make it to term this time around!GREAT pictures!

    Seeing those scars gave me goosebumps. When your daughter is a grown women she will look at the scars and thank you for all you have done for her. God bless you.
