Being pregnant after a preemie is one of the most mentally challenging things I’ve done. People often ask me what was the second factor on having another baby after Jaxson. My number 1 answer is: “Choosing the RIGHT DOCTOR!” And on February 11th, we were beyond grateful for the choice we made. I delivered a healthy baby girl via scheduled C-Section at 38 weeks which was our goal. I cried tears of joy on the operating room table as my OB held my baby girl up for me to see. it was such sweet relief! And to see how equally happy my Doctor was for us was the icing on the cake.
Dear Sir at Pizza Rev,
Please don't tell me I need to have ANOTHER Baby since I had one that was premature. What you thought was a "joke" was in fact a very insensitive comment. I don't need to be reminded by a complete stranger that I missed out on a lot of things by giving birth 17 weeks early. To imply that my sons life should not be celebrated and almost dismissed is absurd. What you fail to realize is that despite his early arrival, we have gained SO much more than what we "lost". God has redeemed the time like never before.
