Completing The Circle

Soon after B proposed I immediately started wedding plans. David's Bridal was having their annual sale and I'm a girl that loves a bargain. With that being said I bought my gorgeous dress in mid January, with the intentions of weight loss that I was already progressively working on.  My dress was gorgeous and I was more then happy to be marrying the man of my dreams. Around this time, we also set the date for August 7, 2014.

In April, B and I went and grabbed a bite to eat from a restaurant and I quickly got sick. I was sick almost all night long. Food poisoning I just knew it. It was awful. May 24 is Monkey's birthday, and we started planning for it in April. A week before his birthday, I just knew something was wrong. I was sick all the time, and I would want to sleep all day long. Getting up the courage to take a pregnancy test, my life changed once again for the second time.

22 (almost 23) and about ready to deliver
I told B in a horrible way. He had been weed eating and opened the door to ask for a glass of tea. That's all, poor soul. I had just taken the test and unloaded on him about it. Telling him I was pregnant, panicking, and didn't know what we would do.  He immediately kissed me and we already knew there was no choice but to keep the baby, the only question was how would it affect the wedding. Would my dress fit? Would I be sick? Would I be showing?  Slowly we told those around us. It wasn't that we were ashamed it was that we didn't want people believing this was the only reason we were getting married, and it wasn't. We had been engaged for months prior to this.

I lost weight because of how sick I stayed for 4 very long months. I seriously survived on fried gas station food, that was all that would stay down for some reason. The baby decided to stay mostly in the back and so back pain was a constant during the pregnancy. Unlike Monkey's my pregnancy was pretty well. Even for the wedding. I was sick, but thankfully it had calmed down some. The wedding did go off without a hitch, and it was a beautiful day. We celebrated and have loved being married.

The day we found out we were having a boy, was a lot of mixed emotions. However, that's another long story for another day. I knew that I was headed for another repeat C-Section, and soon our baby boy would be in our arms. It was a pretty easy pregnancy, with only pain in my back because he refused to get off of my spine and a pretty bad case of the allergies everything was perfect.

January 9, 2015. We arrived at the hospital at 6 a.m. The nurses and all were very sweet and helpful and everything was going according to plan, in fact they even got me into the OR early. With B holding my hand the entire time, even while I felt like a elephant was sitting on my chest,  our boy came into the world at 8:39 a.m.  His beautiful  cries filling the room, and I was just thankful it was less traumatic then Monkey's. B took pictures and was so excited to show him off to the family.  Bugs was born at 7 lbs 12 oz and only 18.5 inches long ( a midget compared to Monkey). He had a head full of hair and had my nose and lips.  While he was being shown off and getting his first test from the nursery, I was being sewn up and really just wanted to sleep.

B was a perfect companion, husband, and friend during our stay at the hospital. The next morning was a bit rough because the surgery had left me with a lack of blood and my iron had basically bottomed out so two bags of blood had to be pumped through me, but it was all worth it every time my Bugs looked at me.

During his pregnancy, I had decided to have my tubes tied and babies from this girl would be finished.  I was and still am happy with the decision. I have two beautiful amazing boys and while that may make me outnumbered in the house, it certainly makes it exciting.   This isn't the life I thought I would have, but I'm certainly happy it was the life I was given.

  1. Awww! Sweet baby! I'm so glad that you wrote down their birth stories! I still remember you whispering to me at your bridal session that you had just found out that you were pregnant!
