I should be getting ready to have my daughter this week – not writing this submission.  My due date was supposed to be Christmas day, and we were so happy!  It was a blessing and miracle that I was even pregnant in the first place…I have Lupus and high blood pressure, and never really thought I’d have children.  My husband and I were married 7 months when we found out we were expecting.  We started thinking of names right away, and dreaming about what our future child would be like.  [Read more…]

So this is mine and my husband’s first child. We were so excited to find out that I was pregnant. I found out when I was 18 that I have endometriosis and it would be difficult for me to get pregnant. So at the time I wasn’t seeing anyone seriously and I went on the Depo shot for birth control. Well then I met my husband and a little over a year later we were married and I stopped taking the depo shot that I had been on for a little over 2 yrs. About 6 months into the marriage we were trying to get pregnant but no luck. So we were getting ready to go talk to a doctor after it had been a yr and no luck. Then I found out I was pregnant.

Mom to Gabriel Christian

Lawton, Oklahoma
I married my husband on August 14, 2010. One year later we took an anniversary trip to New Braunfels, TX. Although it may seem like an odd choice, we decided it would be fun to spend out first anniversary at Schlitterbahn. The water park was my idea, and we both thought it would be fun to have a carefree trip with just the two of us before we started trying to have children. The trip was fantastic. We knew it was the kind of thing we could do with kids, it would just be more stressful and more about them than us.
