I can't believe it's been so long since I've posted on here. I've been so busy as a new mom, that I've completely forgotten my blog. But now as my sweet 3 month old angel-on-Earth sleeps, I have finally found some time. As you can tell from my opening, I have indeed gave birth to my "Rainbow baby." After a very scary pregnancy (she was perfectly find the whole pregnancy, it was just me that was terrified,) and MANY stinkin' Lovenox shots, I was induced to have my girl on November 28th, 2012. I went in that night, and they started giving me cervidil around 9:30 to soften my cervix. I began to have mild contractions around midnight, and at 6 they started me on Pitocin. Got me a great ol' epidural around 8 in the morning, and at 12, my doctor came to break my water. As soon as my water was broke, my doctor inserted an internal ultrasound to monitor baby's heartbeat. Almost as soon as they got it in there, the heartbeat got REALLY irregular. So much so that they didnt even think it was possible for her heart to be beating like that. And then, it began to drop. Very fast. After trying (unsuccessfully due to the epidural) to get me on my hands and knees, the nurses panicked, the doctor ran to prep for surgery. My nurse was literally ripping cords out of the wall. I was FREAKING out. I really thought I was going to lose ANOTHER baby, after making it the whole pregnancy! As they're rushing me down the hall (just like in the movies!), all I could do was cry. And say repeatedly, "I'm scared!" They got me in the O.R., and as I was getting prepped for surgery I was trying so hard to pray. But it was as if I just couldn't get any words out. All I was getting out was "Help us dear Jesus! Please keep the baby and I safe." through my tears. A nurse came up to me and grabbed my hand, and prayed with me, when I couldn't find any words. She prayed that Jesus would protect me and the baby, and that he would guide the doctors hands." That was the last thing I remembered before I was out. When I woke up in recovery, my doctor was there and told me about my precious new baby. At 1:11 p.m. on November 29, my sweet Zadie Isabelle was born. A small 6 lbs 6 oz, and 19 in long. Just a lil dark peach fuz on her tiny head. My nurse told me that my Doctor got her out in 5 minutes. Literally. They said that he should've gotten the reward for fastest C-section ever. I'm so thankful for him, and all the nurses that helped deliver my sweet girl. As soon as I was allowed to leave recovery, they took me to the nursery and handed me my precious girl. I remember her just staring at me with her pretty brown (almost black, just like Mommy's) eyes. I was so proud. Today, my darling Zadie Belle is 3 months old and doing great. She goes to bed around 10:30 every night and sleeps until around 8. she eats GREAT! And is such a happy baby. I wish so much that her big brother Aaden was here, to be just that, a big brother! But I know that he's watching down on us, with so much love. One day we will all be together in Glory Land! To all my Angel baby Momma's out there: Don't lose hope! Always turn to Jesus. He loves you so much! Here's some pictures :)

Since writing on here last I've had three more ultrasounds done of my little monkey, the first of those 3 determining that I am indeed having a little GIRL! I was quite shocked when the u/s tech told us, because I was just so sure that I was having a boy. But, God decided to bless us with a baby girl instead :). I couldn't be happier with the healthyness of our little one, every check up she has a strong heartbeat, and she's got some strong kicks on her too! We still have yet to come up with a for sure name for her, but there are a few we like and since I've still got about 13 weeks or so left, we still have time for that. As mentioned before, I am still on the LOVENOX injections, giving a 40 mg dose to myself every night. Recently I've begun to alternate injection sites between my upper thighs and my belly. And I'm getting quite tired of them LOL, but whatever it takes! After having some upper right quadrant pain lately, I was ordered an ultrasound on my gallbladder, only to discover that I have 2 very small (4 mm ) gallstones in there. Since i'm so far along in pregnancy, my doctor's really don't want to do surgery, and I've been put on a NO FATS/NO SPICES diet, which is no fun at all when all you want is mexican food! But once again, oh well, pregnancy is drawing closer to an end as I enter my last trimester, and then we can figure out something to do about that. Besides this diet! Anyways, I'm still thinking God every day that my baby girl is healthy as can be inside my tummy, and knowing it won't be too much longer before I'm having this HEALTHY baby and meeting her sweet little face. I really just can't wait! This first ULTRASOUND is showing that she's a "SHE"
