“Come under cover of night and I’ll waiting
I’ll be biding my time, just to see you again
But please, don’t ask me questions
Cause you may not like what the answers might be”

“Let’s not speak of faith
We’ll tell only lies
Here, love is what you might find…”

My story

I had a feeling that I wasn’t able to get pregnant, but then again in the past, I never intentionally tried to. I was busy finishing my school, my goals and my fun that I still wanted to have.

I was in Oklahoma City visiting my mother for the Christmas holiday last year and I have this memory of a conversation that we had about babies. “Are you going to ever have kids?” “Are you ok if you don’t?” My mom asked. [Read more…]

Mom to Naya Jane

July 24, 2011 – September 14, 2011

Nipomo, CA

 Naya was born on July 24. She was a beautiful 7lb, seemingly healthy baby. My husband and I fell in love immediately. The only thing that was a little off was the fact that she had some feeding problems in the hospital and didn’t poop the first couple days. They told us not to worry about it and released us on the 25. We went home and started to get used to our new life. Unfortunately, Naya was still not eating or pooping. We took her to the pediatrician on July 26 and she gave her something to make her poop and told us to follow up with a lactation consultant about the eating. I told her it didn’t seem to be a breast feeding specific issue – Naya wasn’t interested in food at all – but we made the appointment anyway. We saw the lactation consultant on July 27 and she also found it odd that Naya had no interest in eating and encouraged us to go back to the pediatrician the next day. I should mention that during this time, we were forcing her to eat and she was spitting most of it up and still not pooping or peeing. We went back to the pediatrician on the 28th and they told us to increase feedings to every two hours, which we did to no avail. After she threw up every feeding that night, I had enough and we took her to the ER. [Read more…]
