Reminiscing -The pregnancy & labor of Charli Beth - Part 1

Part 1

In almost 200 post over the last year I have never blogged about my pregnancy and labor with Charli Beth. Can you believe that? Craziness if you ask me. The best time in my life; minus the sickness and bed rest!

I've been reminiscing a lot here lately due to the fact that in just a few days it will be four years since the day I found out I was "with child." Nope, I can't believe that either. At that time, I was living at WKU with a girl that I barley knew but would become one of my dearest friends. I also have to admit that I was also having the time of my life while living so close but away from home.
Never did I realize that the Lord was taking control of my life in one way or another.

On August 26, 2005 myself and a friend Cameron had a wreck on the way back to our dorm. I wasn't sure how either of us made it out alive (pictures below on another post) but now I know why. Less than a month later, I started feeling extremely sick while at school so my Mom and sister came to pick me up. On the way home, my sister asked me if there was any way that I could possibly be pregnant, because flu season wasn't in full swing yet. As soon as I said no, I tried throwing up....again (Lets not exactly call that throwing up. It's only a sound, a horrible, stuck hog dying sound, being that I cannot vomit what-so-ever.) which should of been a for sure sign to everyone of us that I was indeed pregnant. Whenever we finally arrived at home, I went onto bed since I was feeling horrible. My Mom and I were close at the time but definitely nothing like we are now. She asked me once again if there was a possibility and I told her the truth....

The next morning, we set in our living room with 6 test that all read positive, calling and getting into 3 different doctors that we seen to make sure. Once again I have no idea why we didn't know after the first one? That night, my Mom painted the bathroom cabinets and did not stop for a second. She was determined but I also believe she was one mad Momma.

For the next month, my time was spent laying on the couch trying to figure my life out while having the worst case of morning sickness in history, moving out of my dorm, leaving the girl that had became my best friend behind and finally finding the perfect OB doctor that showed me my little pea sized baby for the first time and set my due date to May 13th, 2006.

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
