I have wanted to be a mom for as long as I can remember, having a name picked out since I was 15 years old. I welcomed my very first miracle into this world on October 1, 2003. Anthony was 9 pounds, 2 ounces and 21 inches long at his birth. He has grown so much over the years into a wonderful little boy who is the light of my life. He loves school, cars and trucks, transformers, legos, and playing outside.
After years of trying to conceive my second miracle, I got pregnant. I started spotting around 7 weeks and found out the baby stopped developing around 6 weeks, and had to have a D&C at 9 weeks. This was my third miscarriage, but by far the hardest. The other 2 were chemical pregnancies and this one turned out to be a partial molar pregnancy which complicated things and has changed my body even more. I have since gone through multiple tests including an endometrial biopsy, HSG, ultrasounds and other blood work.
After all this time, we finally got Pregnant! We underwent IUI in March 2013 and got our BFP on the first try! I was due on December 27th and we welcomed our second miracle into this world on December 17, 2013. LeeAnn was 8 pounds, 7 ounces and 20.5 inches long. I am extremely blessed.
I have a condition called PCOS that has caused some fertility issues. I also am high risk for pregnancy due to a bleeding disorder called ITP, but this has pretty much stabilized since my blood transfusion in November of 2000, although it prevented me from having a spinal or epidural when I had an emergency c-section with Anthony. I was monitored closely with LeeAnn and was able to have an epidural for my c-section with her so I was able to stay awake and hear her first cries and see her right away.
I am currently an operations coordination for a Bank since May 2013. We don't deal with the normal bank stuff, but rather Health Savings Accounts. I am loving my job.
I am a very loving, loyal, kind, compassionate person. I give all I can to my family and friends and do anything I can to help them out. I sometimes give too much of myself. Making people happy brings me great joy. I am also creative. I love scrapbooking, making crafts, painting and making graphics. I am very down to earth and friendly, so if you want to know more, just ask first.
