    Yay! I'm glad you started this because I have lost plug today. Lots and lots of it.

    I needed to tell someone!

    I wrote up my story a couple weeks ago. I need to find some pictures to post too.

    Tim and I met while seniors in high school. We have no romantic introduction story as we met at an old man’s house that used to buy everyone beer! But it was pretty much love at first sight. I remember walking down the hall in high school after we met and I knew I would see him and I would get all butterflyish in my tummy. It was an amazing feeling. We “got together on St. Patty’s day 1998! Green Beer was consumed! We ended up going to prom together and had a great time! We stayed together all through summer and my parents were transferred out of state and we were planning on attending the same college but not quite living together as we were 18! But as it happened we needed to live together for me to not have to move... so living it sin it was. But it was amazing. We worked together and went to school together yet still loved every minute of time together. We graduated from college the same day but at different times of the day in December of 2002.

    Tim proposed the week after Valentine’s day three months later. There is a traditional “spot” on our college campus called century tree and its this beautiful old tree with a bench under it! We walked around campus after that and called everyone. We knew we would be transferred out of state in July for his job so we made sure to plan a quick wedding. So we were married 4 months later at a little outdoor chapel in the woods.


    We moved to Phoenix after that and lived there for 3 years. We moved back to Texas in September of 2006 and I had a friend that was pregnant and after her baby was born I knew I would be ready to start trying soon! It took us a year to conceive Tyler but he was well worth the wait.

    Everything went well in his pregnancy until 28 weeks when I was ( what I believe misdiagnosed with gestational diabetes, long story if you want me to tell it I will). At that time we had two people at my office quit as well so they piled all the extra work on me. So on top of that and only knowing people that had major pregnancy complications in my life I started contracting. I am 99% sure this was self inflicted as I didn’t know at the time how a normal pregnancy was to go. It was partially stress to from work. So at 28w6d I was put on “modified” bedrest. I was told to just relax at home. So mainly no work, no sex and no working out. I was still allowed to cook, go out to eat etc!


    After all this hoopla of bedrest I hit 39 weeks and was getting regular ultrasonds because of the “GD”( still don’t think I had it). They concluded that Tyler was getting big and was probably 8.5 pounds by then so they needed to induce me. They were planning on giving me cytotec and as much as I knew about it I did not want to have it. I told my doc the concerns and she pretty much brushed me off so my husband ( who isn’t the outspoken one) said “she doesn’t want that, give her the cervadil”. So we checked in the night before and the inserted the cervadil.

    And.... I will go to the other computer to get my birth story.
