GETTING PREGNANT AFTER A PREEMIE

GETTING PREGNANT AFTER A PREEMIE

You see for me getting pregnant after having my micropreemie son was not something I had ever really considered. When people would ask "so when is the next one coming?" They would get THE LOOK...oh you know the look that says "are you for real?" After all that we've been through? Nah I'm good. Through my first pregnancy I learned so much about myself, my body and the entire experience wasn't what I imagined. It was such a hard journey- but through my tumultuous pregnancy and premature birth, I discovered my purpose, my faith grew AND I witnessed a real life miracle. I truly believe that everything I went through was God's will and plan.

As a mother to a baby given 20% chance of survival, I couldn't be more grateful for Jaxson's life and good health. 2 years ago I was in the hospital receiving grim statistics and predictions on what could be of my sons health- and what do you know, my son with the help of God proves EVERYONE wrong! With exception of his speech delay he is miraculous and not showing signs that he was born at 22 weeks 6 days. His life is a reminder that good things DO happen to those who believe!

It's been said that all good things take time. So why do we as humans try to rush? Shouldn't we enjoy the season we are in without trying to rush to the next?

Recently someone commented on one of Jaxson's videos saying he was so smart. My immediate response was, "thank you!" I didn't stop to think about the things he hasn't yet accomplished, I simply was grateful for the compliment. The other night I was talking to my husband and I was semi complaining or expressing myself rather over the fact that Jaxson doesn't say a lot of words.
