    YEYEYE...Well I guess I should just start from the begining eh?

    I met DH in Nov 2004 when I started working at a local retail store in Houston, He was my supervisor and I was the newest hire...the store was about to open...anyway... and I hated him...lol

    He was sooo annoying and aggrevating and anal..lol ... he's such a perfectionist and as his employee this got annoying fast... I was actually in a relationship when I met him...a VERY VERY bad relationship filled with many tears but we wont go there...

    Anyway...after a while I got to know Brandon better and we started being friends but it was just while we were at work kind of friendship...and then I started confiding in him about my relationship and finally my relationship ended for good...Brandon and I had been "talking" for a while...and he started to show me his real side...

    Then we started dating...and I moved in with him...we had some terrible things happen due to him being black and me being white but we got past them (with my family)...

    We didn't have a very healthy relationship because I had low self esteem and so did he so put us together and things didn't always add up... until finally we hit rock bottom...and we reached out for God ...then things started to change

    We started going to church and we changed our entire relationship...and eventually we made it to the point where marriage was a topic

    We made through some tough battles but it only made us stronger and better for one another and we were married Aug 27 2006

    The greatest thing in the world is finding someone you can love with all your heart and who will love you back...and realizing that the whole thing was meant to be...and that every thing that happened in your life good or bad lead up to the point when you got to meet that special someone...

    That's how I feel about this marriage...and even with heartache and joy...everything I can look back on in my life I can't regret because it all added up to where I am now! Anyway...

    We found out about 2mths later that we were pregnant...a huge surprise and very frightening...and it put a lot of stress on our new marriage but we intended on keeping the baby...it was an eye opening experience and it actually just made us closer in the end...we did what we could but God called our little one home to heaven...such a hard battle and somehow with the grace of God we made it through that one too!

    And then we were blessed to be pregnant with this one... I got my BFP December 23 2006!!! Best christmas present ever!!!!!!!!

    That's all the time I have to post right now, I'll go into more details on my pregnancy later.

    Prior Pregnancies: I have had four pregnancies before this one, I lost them all before 10 weeks, the docs never gave me a reason other than scar tissue on my uterus, scar tissue all up inside me...

    I was raped at age 10 and it caused huge issues...I am telling you this so you will know what Averi means to me...each of us have special feelings for our babies for one reason or another and these are my reasons...

    Loosing four babies I was sure I was going to loose Averi too, I didn't have insurance when I became pregnant with her so one day I went to the hospital and the ER doc there ran tests on my levels (which were high) but when he did an ultra sound (this was at 7 weeks) he said he could not find the heartbeat so they sent me to the big ultra sound room ... and they too said they could not see the heartbeat...

    They flat out told me my baby was dead and told me to get a D & C...

    My husband refused to believe our baby was dead and we prayed about it ... I did not go get the D&C ... I continued to have morning sickness and so forth... finally when the insurance kicked in (at 12 weeks) I got to go to the doctor...

    They put the doppler on my stomach and found her heartbeat instantly...it was the most beautiful sound to hear....I still love hearing it!!!

    Along the way Averi has tricked me by not moving or sometimes her heartbeat is hard to find with the doppler and I get frightened but then it always turned out perfect...

    She is my miracle baby, a baby that docs told me I could never have!

    When I was younger and first started going to OB's they told me I should never get pregnant and if I do I would never carry full term...lol... proved them wrong...Averi will be considered full term in just a few more days!!

    Just wanted to share with you how much she really means to me...I can't even discribe how much I love her but I know that you all understand!

    At 28 weeks I started cramping really badly, DH and I rushed to L&D...I was having contractions, I had let myself get dehydrated and my cervix started to dilate ... it was very scary, I thought we were going to have her too soon!! But they stopped the contractions and my cervix stopped dilating... I have been dilated 1cm since then...

    At 34 weeks I started having contractions again! I kept to myself at work and tracked them and they got to every 11mins, I tried to contact my doc but no answer at her office, and they don't have an answering machine, and when I called her ER line they said they would have her call me but she never did, and when I called again they said they would have the on call doc call me... and he never did... someone must have over heard my convo's in the bathroom cause the next thing I knew my supervisor was at my side and then everyone was starring at me and they called the EMS ... OMG it was sooo embarressing.. and I had to leave work on an EMS when my husband works less than 5 mins away...by the time I got to the hospital my contractions were 8 mins apart and before we ended up leaving they had gotten to 6 mins apart... We thought we were having our baby... but they eventually spaced back out and my cervix never changed....sooo yeah...false alarm...

    Now here I am, I went to my 36 week appointment and Averi was measuring small, I was observed today and Averi passed all the tests so it is confirmed that her lungs, heart and brain are fully formed and working great but she still has not gained any weight, so its evident that my placenta is not giving her nutrients...I go back to the doctor on Monday and I will be induced on Wed or Thursday... of this coming week...this was not the kind of birth I wanted and I am still going to do it with out the epi but at this point Averi is what is most important and I would sacrafice anything to make sure she is healthy! Right now she is not growing at all, I don't want to wait too late and starve her to death...

    Boy...this is a long post but this is all the crap I've been through during this pregnancy...I know its not as bad as what others have been through but to me it has all been scary while it was happening...

    Now we are at the end!!! We are finally almost done and I will have my baby girl in the next few days!! God has been watching over us the entire time and it has been a learning experience!
