One month ago today was one of the scariest and most beautiful days of my life. This lil buddy joined us earlier than expected at #34weeks
. I look at him and can't believe what an amazing, happy and strong little baby he is. I knew it wasn't going to be an easy pregnancy seeing that I had a 9 month old already running around, I'm in my late 30s and I'm a #typeonediabetic
but I couldn't prepare myself for what a treacherous road it would become.
I have been admitted into the hospital once a month since May. My stays would be at least a week or longer with these very unusual spells of not being able to keep anything down (including water.) I just threw up for days straight. Nobody knows what it was or why it was happening but it was the worst and scariest thing I've ever gone through. Then on top of that I had been having high blood pressures.. On the night of September 19 I was feeling terrible and I had been feeling terrible for awhile. I checked my blood pressure and it was super high. Paul drove me to the hospital, we got there at 11:30 PM. I was quickly diagnosed with preeclampsia and hellp syndrome and then this beautiful boy was born at 3:29 AM via c-section... This is the long/short version of our story, but all I can say is that I feel so lucky.
I'm so grateful this beautiful boy is here and thriving and I'm so grateful that I'm alive... 💓
With that said, I have to admit that every once in awhile I get this amazing feeling come over me and I'm like, "holy shit, I'm not pregnant anymore! Eff yes!" 😂 I feel like I've been pregnant FOREEEVVVEERRR! 😜
