Charlene and her early but amazing pregnancy.
very for me…a little to early. At the tender (and somewhat wise) age of 16yrs
I fell pregnant with my daughter (now 12 yrs).
can imagine the shock, disbelief, disgust I had to endure with my family.
overdue with her and was induced, ended up having an emergency c - section…which was terrible.
fathers side, life as "they knew it" had ended. My mother being one of those
"ok" moms accepted, and dealt with it. I ,on the other hand thought I knew it
all and was as ready as I could be to be a mom. The thought of sounded
fun…clearly I was mistaken!!!
trying to breastfeed and sleepless nights, I did get through it. Fortunately
her father and I ended up getting married and extended our family with a boy,
Erin (6yrs old).
He was a
natural birth…I thought id try the natural thing, you know hire a midwife,
breathe….and all that nonsense you are suppose to fool yourself with.
came 2 weeks early, weighing 4kgs at birth…I seriously almost committed
murder…the pain was unbearable. IF anyone had been near that room, they would
have been sworn at…and that was only because I couldn’t get up to throw a good
punch!! Nevertheless, it was well worth it. ( but never ever
this time round I was able to breastfeed (I had enough milk to supply the
country) I went from a size 32A to 36C…it was fabulous!!!! For the first
time in my life I had BOOBS!!!
now they have disappeared, and the only reminder I have is stretch marks!
says he would like more children…I said no problem, we will adopt!
a funny way of teaching us lessons, for me it has been a rollercoaster of a
ride, but I have made my mistakes and many of them, but most importantly I have
learnt from them.
my children id be so lost.
I thank the Lord
everyday for the blessing he has given me.
