ONE SCARED MOMMY





RJ AND I WENT IN FOR A REGULAR DOCTORS VISIT ON FRIDAY, JULY 14TH, 2006. WE HAD A NON-STRESS TEST SCHEDULED THAT MORNING AT 9:00 A.M. WE WENT IN AND DID THE TEST AND AFTER THE TEST WAS DONE I KNEW SOMETHING WAS WRONG. I HAD ALREADY STARTED THINKING SOMETHING WAS WRONG A COUPLE OF DAYS BEFORE, BUT DIDN'T WANT TO BE THAT CRAZY PREGNANT WOMEN. SO WHEN WE HEARD OUR NAME CALLED AFTER ONLY ABOUT 5 MINUTES OF BEING IN THE WAITING ROOM WE BOTH KNEW SOMETHING WASN'T RIGHT. WE WALKED IN AND ALL THE DOCTOR SAID WAS SHE WAS SENDING US DOWN STAIRS TO BE HOOKED UP AND MONITORED AND WOULD PROBABLY DELIVERY THE BABIES THAT DAY!! I WAS SCARED TO DEATH AND NEVER EXPECTED THAT WE WOULD HAVE THE BABIES THAT DAY. MY DAD GOT THERE JUST BEFORE THEY ROLLED ME OUT TO THE OPERATING ROOM, WHICH WAS AROUND 12:30 BECAUSE THE BOYS WERE BORN AT 1:10 AND 1:11. IT ALL HAPPENED SO FAST AND ALL I COULD DO WAS PRAY! I THANK GOD EVERYDAY FOR ANSWERING MY PRAYERS AND GIVING ME THE TWO MOST AMAZING GIFTS I COULD EVER RECEIVE! I AM SO BLESSED TO HAVE TWO BEAUTIFUL AND HEALTHY BOYS RIGHT NOW!



I HAVE BEEN SO STRESSED OUT ABOUT IT RAINING SATURDAY DURING THE PARTY, BUT LOOKING BACK AND REMEMBERING WHERE WE WERE THIS TIME LAST YEAR I COULD CARE LESS!! WE WILL BE CELEBRATING THIS YEAR RAIN OR SHINE BECAUSE LAST YEAR WE DIDN'T KNOW IF THESE LIL' BOYS WOULD BE HERE OR NOT!! IT WAS MORE LIKE A FUNERAL INSTEAD OF A CELEBRATION! I'VE BEEN VERY EMOTIONAL LATELY AND THOUGHT THAT IT WAS JUST BECAUSE MY BABIES WERE GOING TO BE ONE, BUT I THINK IT'S BECAUSE I KEEP THINKING ABOUT THIS TIME LAST YEAR! IT WAS THE HARDEST TIME OF MY LIFE AND MY HEART HURTS JUST THINKING ABOUT IT! SO WE WILL MAKE GOOD MEMORIES ON SATURDAY AND PRAISE GOD FOR MY WONDERFUL, HEALTHY BOYS!!!
