Don't take anything for granted!

I remember being a kid and young person and absolutely loving children. I always thought that when I got married I would be able to have as many children as I wanted. But alas, when I did get married and we were ready to have kids..I had a miscarriage. I really thought that perhaps this was just a fluke. So about a year later we decided to try again. I had Logan Chase with no problems so I KNEW everything was going to be ok for the next time.

Well the next time rolled around and...I had another miscarriage. This seemed a little weird but again I didn't panic. Several months went by and we tried again...but again..it ended in yet another miscarriage. By this time things were definitely starting to scare me. I went to my doctor and he promised me that the next time I tried to get pregnant he would start me on Progesterone, which is a hormone that the baby HAS to have to be able to survive after the first 3 months.
I waited almost a year and we got pregnant again, I RAN to the doctor as soon as I knew I was pregnant..and guess what??? He decided that we would just wait it out and SEE if I started to have a miscarriage...GOD BLESS THAT HORRIBLE MAN'S HEART! ( yes I was very mad..but I'm over it now :D ) So we waited...he had me go have blood tests done and the next day I went back in and he told me my levels were EXTREMELY low..but again he said..lets just wait and see. Well surprise surprise...I had another miscarriage. So that was 4 miscarriages total with the SAME doctor.
Needless to say I changed doctors QUICKLY!!!
I am now with the most wonderful doctor/specialist and within 11 months of seeing him our little Trystan Michelle was born.

Thank God for wonderful, caring doctors!
To say I am a proud mommy of my two wonderful, miracle children is a HUGE understatement. I thank God every day for my babies. I'm including some pictures of them so you can enjoy them a little bit too!

So as I stated in the beginning. Don't ever take anything you have for granted because sometimes things don't come as easily as you think they will.
