Three years ago, February 2009, my fiance and I found out we
were expecting our 2nd child. It was a magical time in our
relationship and we could not be happier to hear the
A few days later I was experiencing some pain and slight
spotting. To be save we went to the hospital. After blood work,
testing, and a lot of waiting we heard the news. The doctors said
they believing I am having a miscarriage and they weren't sure why.
My HcG levels were not where they were suppose to be (if I was
about 6 1/2 weeks along) so they simply sent us home and told me to
expect to miscarry on my own within the next couple days.
We left the hospital speechless and wide-eyed. We had nothing to
say. We were angry. My first pregnancy went amazingly smooth so why
was this happening?!
The doctors were right. Two days later I started bleeding. I
went to the hospital to get checked. My HcG levels had dropped a
lot more and were returning to normal. I was told I didn't need a
D&C (thank God) so I was pretty much good to go home...and
My fiance and I decided to skip the stress of planning a wedding
so we got married in front of Makenna and called it a day. We knew
we had to wait a few months before we tried to get pregnant again
but we didn't want to. We tried and tried and tried. Month after
November 2009 brought a different story as we found out we were
pregnant again!! It was rough at first because we quickly found out
I was RH- so I needed a couple shots to prevent my body from
attacking the little fetus.
Fast forward 8 months later on July 18th 2010 (2 1/2 weeks
before my due date) I gave birth to a very healthy 8lb 1oz baby
girl. We named her Kendall Rose.
After such heartache, life gave us a sweet gift. Kendall is now
just 3 months away from her 2nd birthday. She's healthy, happy, so
funny, and a cuddle bug, and also starting to get into that
Terrible Two stage but we still love her.
