From the moment that my husband and I got married we knew that we wanted a baby, but with endometriosis I had to wait it out until I got better. About 3 months after we said "I do" we started trying to conceive. I didn't know how long it would take but I really didn't think that it would happen in a month.
Exactly a month after trying we found out that we where pregnant with our first child. Neither one of us could believe that it was real. We examined the lines on the pregnancy test all day; I even took another one the next day. It was true… I was going to have a baby in 8 months! With it being my first pregnancy I had no clue what to expect. I read up on every book about pregnancy but none of it prepared me for the last three months of my pregnancy. I had acid reflux with every meal I ate. I could vomit with just a drink of water. I was very miserable and I thought that I would be sick the rest of my life. Everyone prepares you for the morning sickness, but nobody ever lets you in on the last months... they drag.
On September 25, 2005 (my 1 year anniversary), I went into an acid reflux attack. I was running to the toilet every 5 minutes and then it happened… my water broke or I peed my pants. I wanted it so badly to be my water that I decided to go to the hospital. By that time I was just ready to have this baby. The nurse checked me and told me that I had just peed myself. This would be embarrassing to most people, but I didn't care. It took everything in me to hold back the tears. I wanted this baby NOW!! Then to my advantage the nurse came back and said my blood pressure was high and they would need to induce me the next day. Of course this wasn't the best way to go in labor, but I was ready to get it over with.
The next morning I was induced and 13 hours later I had my baby girl in my arms. Now Hailee is 4 months old and I can tell you from experience it was all worth it.
