I was one week away from being due with baby number 4, helping my aunt get ready for her daughter's bridal shower. I was standing on a stool (yes, I was a little young and "thought" I was invincible back then) tacking a balloon in the ceiling when I felt my water break. I jumped (again, the young invincible me) down and went in the bathroom... WELL it wasn't water, but bright red blood. I hollered for my cousin to get her mom and sat back on the toilet where it kept on coming! Seriously, it sounded like a horse peeing!! I couldn't get off the toilet, my aunt called 911 and away I went in the ambulance! A quick ultrasound showed complete placenta previa, which we did not know about as having no insurance we didn't have an ultrasound that pregnancy!! So in to the OR where Shiloh James was born exactly two hours after the 911 call was placed! And that is how my c-section story began!
It is hard to believe that my first "set" as I call my older kiddos, are all teenagers!! It is almost like having two families, the big Kiddos and the Littles!!
