Complicated Pregnancy With a Happy Ending

A nurse who was in the room asked another nurse if my epidural needed to be removed. She didn't know I didn't have one. I got to hold my little Austin. He had such dark hair with blond streaks in it. I was so happy. My nurse came in a bit later and said he weighed 7 pounds 6 ounces and was 18 inches.

About 30 or 45 minutes later the IV was removed and I was all over the place. I was so excited I couldn't wait to hold him again. I asked my doctor how long it took this time he said 3 hours and 10 minutes. I was like wow!

Now my baby boy is 15 months old and sweet as can be. I thank G-d every day for the precious gifts he has given me. And I realize that my miscarriage happened for a reason. If I hadn't had the miscarriage I wouldn't have my little Austin.
