A “TINY” Blessing
Click to read Chapters 1-12
Continued From Chapter 12:
During that week I happened to be looking up some information on something and came across some information on other vitamins that work with infertility issues. Most were different than things I had taken before. I purchased some and told the Lord it was up to Him. I told Him I wasn’t going to TRY, if it happened and we got pregnant it was in His hands.
2 months after our 2nd miscarriage I was pregnant again. Now I had to try and get into the doctor and hope we didn’t loose this baby.
This time because I had a history with this doctor I was able to get in right away. Things looked good and we held our breath that things would progress without complications. They kept telling me that my fluids were low and they kept an eye on them. This baby was also breach. I kept talking to him and telling him he needed to flip around but he seemed happy in that breech position. We found out we were having another boy. My 3 sons.
About 6 weeks before his due date we were moving. A couple of weeks later I was feeling uncomfortable before bed. I felt sick and just didn’t feel quite right. We called and talked to the doctor and he wanted us in the hospital. I remember being hooked up to an IV and the medicine made me feel loopy. I remember having a sonogram in the middle of the night. I remember conversations with the nurse about some things but the medicine made me think fuzzy. The next morning they did another sonogram to check my fluids and I was informed that I would be having my baby THAT day by emergency c-section. I had not taken a bag, I hadn’t brought any baby clothes or the car seat–I still had weeks to go before he was due.
God watched over him because when they pulled him out he also had a knot in his chord. He was born perfect, strong and healthy but he was tiny.
As time passed we talked about whether or not we should have another one. Our two oldest boys were super close and there was such an age span between them and our little guy. The economy was starting to spiral out of control and we decided it would be best to stop with the 3 God had given us but you know our plans are not always HIS plans.
Until next time…
