I love reading the “About” section of everyone’s blogs. I love knowing a little bit about the person behind the blog. So, I thought I would periodically tell a little more about myself than what I have written in my “About” section.
From left to right: Meredith, Rick, Tracy and Shannon.
My children are a gift from God that I am abundantly thankful for every single day. My husband and I were praying for children for four years. My doctor discovered that I was not ovulating regularly and suggested I take Clomid – a fertility medication. I took Clomid for four months and still no pregnancy. So, she said, “Let’s give Pergonal - another fertility medication - a try.” One shot of Pergonal and I was pregnant! I was so happy I was shouting it from the rooftops!
My precious little bundles arrived six weeks premature. The girls were healthy. My son developed an infants form of colitis called NEC, but fortunately he fought through it and won. Five weeks after they were born everyone came home.
It wasn’t easy, but I would do it all again in a heartbeat.
