EDD: May 18th
I lost 3 little angels before I met my Prince!
I met my prince in November of 2004
I started dating him and falling in love in July 2004
This was Brandon and I before marriage.
I married my best friend on August 27th 2006
Here's a little slide show I put together!
This is Brandon and I after marriage!
I lost another little angel in October 2006 before my first born child,
Averi Elizabeth Mackenzie
who was born August 7th 2007 at 9:57pm.
She was 5lbs 7.7oz and 17.75 inches long!
Then we lost another little angel on Aug 16th 2008.
At 5 weeks pregnant the only thing they could see was a little black dot in my uterus.
They assumed it was the sack but there was not a baby inside it.
Not even the beginnings of a baby.
My HCG levels were tested and it turned out that they were indeed elevated
as though I was pregnant. But after 2 additional HCG tests spread over a week...
It was shown and declared that my HCG was falling and falling fast.
I had been pregnant and was indeed having a M/C.
That Friday on August 16th 2008 I started to bleed and cried.
I had lost a baby that I had only just found out about.
Here's the U/S pic of my last little angel. It is a picture of a pic.
Black and white and very blurry. But they wrote on the top... Gest Sac?
Underneath those words is the little empty black dot.
Underneath that they wrote uterus.
But there was hope and light at the end of my tunnel.
I ovulated and became pregnant in the same cycle as the M/C!!!
In fact they used my M/C date 8/16/08 as my LMP for the new pregnancy.
Here's the pix of my BFP's!
See how the pee pee stick says "II" means pregnant
and "I" means not pregnant.
I have two lines... but I had so much HCG ...
That the pregnancy line was stealing ink from the control line!
Here's an U/S pic of the new pregnancy at 5 weeks!
See the little black dot and my teeny tiny bean inside.
And the little bean did stick it out.
And the little one did grow and grow!
I'll take you through all my belly pix first...
Then we'll have a look at all the U/S pix!!
I didn't take very many belly pictures. Sorry but here is 12 weeks and 13 weeks in the 1st trimester!
Because I had to have a c-section to birth my first daughter, Averi
Because she would have died if we hadn't cut her out...
I had to have another c-section for Emma to come out safely.
I had an 8% chance for uterine rupture
My Husband, Brandon and I talked it over
We both decided it was best to go ahead and have a repeat c-section.
And Emma Isabella Claire Buff****** was born
May 20th 2009 at 8am
7lbs 4oz and 19 inches long!
"Watch me as I grow!"
My very first Birthday pictures!!
Mommy and Daddy with me!
I am riding in a car seat for the 1st time!
I am meeting my sister for the first time!
I am getting my first sponge bath!
This is what I did at my very 1st doctor appointment!
My 1st smile caught on camera!
Look how big/small I am compared to my stuffed giraffe!!
I'll make sure to have my mommy take a new picture of me
each month with my giraffe.
Look! I learned how to hold up my head!!
Look how high I can hold it up while laying on my tummy!
I can roll over now!
I can sit up all by myself!
I can hold a rattle now!
I am eating cereal now!
I'm trying to learn how to crawl!
I am eating baby food now!! But mommy still gives me milk.
I love Mommy's milk soooo much.
And I love mommy!!
I can crawl now!! YAY!!!
I can hold my own bottle. Yay!!
I'm trying to learn how to stand!
I'm trying to learn how to walk!
Look at me feeding myself!
I am a whole ONE YEAR OLD today!!
