My first baby was stillborn 02/18/1992. I was 9 1/2
mths pregnant, I was 19 yrs old and had an emergency C-section. It was the
most devastating thing that has ever happened to me. I married my first
husband because I was young, thought I was in love and I thought it would
keep the memory of my first baby alive. Three years later I had my
daughter. Three years after that, I had my son. My doctor wanted to tie my
tubes. He asked me the whole time I was pregnant with my son and even
during the C-section. I refused. I wanted more children. I did not have my
tubes tied. When my son was 1 1/2yrs old, I had a dr appt. The doctor said
my uterus felt large. I did not have regular periods so he thought I was
pregnant. He ordered a blood test and for 45 minutes I thought I was
pregnant. It was a very scary moment for me. I thought of the fact that my
husband had recently left me. I thought of the fact that I would have 3
kids in daycare. I wondered what I was going to do. I went back for the
results. I was not pregnant. I scheduled my ligation. I did this because I
was determined NOT to have another child with my husband. I convinced
myself that if 1 day I met the RIGHT one and we could afford a reversal, I
would have another baby.
I thank GOD everyday. I am sooo thankful to Rio Bravo.
I am hoping and praying for a baby and thanks to Dr Perez its soooo
possible. If you are reading this and need some advice, JUST DO IT!
I waited and now I'm almost 37. I should have done this a long time ago.
