If you've been following along on this interesting journey of ours, you know that this pregnancy was not only a miracle, but a nail-biter! I am 41 years old with two beautiful girls, Mallory 14 and Amy 10. Last year I had an Endometrial Ablation due to heavy menstrual cycles. During this procedure the lining of the uterus is essentially burned. There is little chance of ever having children afterwards. Of course our doctor advised us of this beforehand and we weren't planning on having anymore children.......
When I said little chance, what I meant was like .08% chance.
God had other plans.
God doesn't care about percentages.
Of course there are risks because of the ablation. One possibility is Placenta Accreda. In this case, the placenta will attach itself to my uterus and not come out. The result is an emergency hysterectomy.
Another risk is the baby will have growth issues in the womb. Periodic ultrasounds will monitor this situation.
But when the worry sets in, I remind myself of one very important thing.......08%.
God wanted this to happen.
God wanted Rich and me to have a baby boy.
God wasn't finished with our family yet.
God is in control.
And THAT deserved a Jersey fist-pump!
That's my boy!
