FEAR I have to overcome
With my last pregnancy, we had a very Traumatic Labor! First off, I never dilated so my induction date was a week past my due date. Then we went in at 5:00am to be induced and they broke my water and it HURT a lot, then I got an epidural but it did not work, and the doctors and nurses kept coming in to check and realized that McKenna was sunny side up, they came in every hour trying to physically turn her, calling me a women with an iron cervics lol after 24 hours of hard labor and being a moment away from a c-section, Mckenna was ready to come, she came out not breathing and did not BREATHE for three minutes! The specialist flooded the room, and in the midst of the chaos...WE prayed.... It was the scariest moment of our lives but thank God she started breathing and she has exceeding all of our expectations! Jeremiah 33:3 & Jeremiah 29:11
Did you have an easy pregnancy or labor? I would love to hear about yours as well!!
I have had to overcome the FEAR that this might happen again… ALSO, the pain of being pregnant with twins and losing one of our sweet babies earlier in this pregnancy, to overcoming the reality of DEEP depression.... This pregnancy has been a journey of self awareness, and trusting God’s perfect plan! I have grown with so much compassion towards women who have had miscarriages, and women who are struggling with infertility. I want you to know that I am praying for you and I love you and would love to connect with you and anyway!
Therefore, now that you have learned about some of the things that we have overcome, On my BLOG tomorrow I will be sharing five ways to overcome depression! Stay tuned!!
