Dear Shape Of A Mother,
Thank you for the terrific site. I’ve never been so effected by pictures.
Our first pregnancy/delivery was a breeze. Three months to conceive, followed by 8-1/2 months of blissfully easy pregnancy, after which my water broke and a healthy baby girl was born.
Our second pregnancy took us nearly two years to achieve, and was rockier. Our second little girl was stubbornly late. After inducing the delivery, there were complications. The umbilical chord was wrapped around her neck twice, and she was ultimately delivered by emergency c-section.
Our third pregnancy surprised us, from beginning to end. Our son was born 6-1/2 weeks early. It was a very scary and emotional time for us. The doctor made a “north/south” incision on the chance that I would need a hysterectomy as well (in case there was complications with the placenta.) We’re very thankful that all of our babies were delivered and grew to be healthy kids.
Here is my contribution. Nearly three years after the youngest was born.
