For anyone who knows me you know that my daughter is my life. I’d jump in front of a moving train for her, into a burning building (my biggest fear is house fires), I’d do anything for her. I love her more than words can ever describe. So I wanted to share my story of how my daughter came about – and then I’ll share my second babies story up to now (I’m 13 weeks 3 days today)
When I got pregnant with my daughter I was 17 years old. I was with my boyfriend of almost a year at that time and we had just gotten back together about a month before. I kept having weird symptoms so my gut told me to take a test. I think I probably took a thousand tests but all came back negative until I was 5 weeks pregnant. At that point we both were in denial so we went to the hospital – waited 5 hrs and got a positive from the doctors that I was indeed pregnant. At that age I was doing a lot of partying (drugs included). so I immediately quit everything – drinking, smoking, and drugs. For about 2 weeks my ex and I argued about aborting, I didn’t want too and he did, so at 7 weeks I left to go stay with my mom so I could get my shit together.

I went 6 days over due with her and sadly didn’t get a “last picture” but anyways I went to the hospital twice in labor and got sent back home twice because I was only 2 cm both times. After 2 long days of laboring I went back and was sadly only 3cm. At this point I was feeling extremely defeated and basically told them I wasn’t leaving so they gave me fentanyl and I progressed to 5cm in 3 hrs. Then they gave me the epidural and I progressed to 9.5 cm in 2 hrs. Half an hour later I started to crown and began pushing and 10 long minutes later she was born.

Now for baby #2
I believe I told this story, about meeting a cute guy at a bar and one thing led to another and now here I am. Not my proudest story but that’s just how my life works.. always something right? the fact I don’t have a drama/twist filled reality tv show yet is kind of disapointing. Atleast my life is never boring! …. anyways so oops were made and he was sooooo against it and I get his point given the circumstances but again – I’m pro life and I’d rather just do it than regret not doing it for a lifetime. So I ran away I guess you could say to live with my mom for a bit…. save up, pay my bills off that were left from my ex, and again – get my shit together. starting over is just my absolute fav……….not. but we all have to do it.
