My Mommy Story

First-time Mom

On Friday December 6th 2013, I gave birth to a beautiful baby Girl. She came into this world weighing 7lbs. 7.2oz. Heading towards 3 weeks of mommy-hood, I’m adapting to the lifestyle of having a newborn baby. I’ve heard horror stories about being overwhelmed and many sleepless nights ,on the contrary, I have a great support system and that helps me tremendously! As of rite now, Baby Brooke’s schedule works to my benefit. During the first week, she slept all day and just about all night. Her favorite hours, were 12:30am till about 1:30am. Let’s skip on to the second week of life. She’s up during the day, napping less, but sleeping longer during the night!! Thank God!

Love is Family!

I can’t express to you how much my life has changed! From being pregnant to now being a mother. I’ve truly learned that you can never compare you situation to someone else and that no matter what anyone may say, GOD has the final and last say! I say this because at 19weeks (pregnant) during a routine doctors visit. I was told that my cervix was shortening and there is a possibility that I may lose my baby. Now i’m presented with the option to get a cerclage (a stitch to hold the cervix shut until full term) or take the risk and continue my pregnancy as normal. Neither option was 100%….I made the decision to get the cerclage. Of all days, the cerclage was scheduled on my birthday July 16th. Not only was I pregnant on my birthday but I was getting a major surgery that could possibly cause me to miscarry but also protecting me from a miscarriage at the same time!!

After my cerclage procedure

Here we stand at 37 weeks pregnant, at a routine doctor visit to remove the cerclage. I was told my baby wouldn’t survive and my pregnancy would not go full term. I’m a living testimony that GOD is a miracle worker! I survived the cerclage. I did not lose my baby. I made it to my due date 12/5/2013. I had a vaginal birth. I was in labour for 27 hours and I pushed her out within 20 minutes. No stitches, No infections, and NO COMPLAINTS!

No matter what it is in life, you can never compare your situation to others but you can share the experience. When life happens you have to keep the faith and depend on God. In my situation, God was the only person I could depend on to help me through. Like the saying goes, if he did it for me, he will do it for you!
