I Almost Died In Childbirth

I had my baby!

August 9, 2017
Joey was born on August 8, 2017 at 1:42 in the morning via emergency c-section.

He unexpectedly arrived roughly a month early, at 36 weeks gestation, due to me having severe preeclampsia which developed into HELLP syndrome.

I know birth stories aren't exactly everyone's bag, so please feel free to skip this post if you aren't into that kind of thing!

A Lot Has Changed

I know I've been really MIA lately. This last six months has been a whirlwind of events that have essentially set my life on it's ear.

I managed to make it through the depression of losing my father then I suddenly lost my aunt in January. She had a brain aneurysm on a Sunday and was gone by Tuesday. No signs, just feeling a bit off and then suddenly gone.

Then in February we found out that I'm pregnant! We hadn't really been trying, I just stopped taking my birth control and left it in God's hands. Some people I know have taken over a year to conceive so I didn't expect anything right away, but we were one and done!
