Pregnancies and Births: 1
Child: 3 weeks old
Plans are moving along, Just ordered my wedding dress and invites, had a wonderful weekend away with my fiance. Next week, got confimation that everything was ordered. End of the week I didnt feel right. (Let the fun start) I took a pregnancy test and it was postitve! So many thoughts run through my mind, “not ready, cant do this, why now, not me, Im scared, I dont want this!” I was so scared I ened up calling an abortion help line. I felt a little better after talking with someone, but still unsure. That whole week I felt sick. I think it was the fact I just found out.
A few months since find out I was pregnant, Im very happy. Going for my first ultrasound soon, and cant wait to finally see my baby. I found, besides drinking alot of water for my ultrasound and having to pee really bad, it was amazing! As the session was ending, the tech said there is a “third leg”. From being in awe of everything that was going on my responce to that was ” omg it has a deformity!!” Not thinking “IT’S A BOY!”
So I was supposed to get married this month. But I ddint want to while being pregnant. I want to fit into my dress. So we are waiting until next july.
My due date: Oct. 1st.
I went into false labor on the 1st. Ended up going into labor on the 3rd at 7:30am, got to the hospital at 9am. I was only 1-2cm dialated, I asked for demerol. Around noon I think the Dr. checked me and I was about 4cm. She broke my water(that was a wird feeling) Then they got me to walk to the delivery room, gave me some laughing gas. They checked me again I was about 6-7cm. I know I was in pain but I dont remember the pain… Then feeling the need to push they checked me again. I was ready to have this baby. It all went by so fast for me. The last feeling I remember is a burning feeling and… then our baby was here! Cant believe I did it. He was born at 3:01pm and 7lbs 6.8oz.
3 Weeks Post Partum
Im loving life!! I may be in need for sleep! But I wouldnt change a thing! I love our little boy! But looking at my body, it has taken some beating. I gained about 40 pounds… I have lots about 30 pounds since having my baby. There is days I feel down, looking they way I do since my body is changing again. When I do look at myself in the mirror I try to think about what I did, I created life. Im proud of what I was able to do, knowing there is women out there who would love to be able to give birth to a baby.
