Well, Its been 3 months since Liana was born. It was a long rough road but it was absolutely worth it. Well here it is.

I found out I was pregnant on October 31 (halloween) I took a test it came back positive. Rick wanted me to take another one the next day so I did, it came back positive again. We were really happy about it. He told his parents right away and I told my mom a little while after. We were all happy about me having a little baby. So right away I made an appt with my OB, and also made an appointment with a specialist, since my pregnancy is high risk b/c of my blood disorder. I got my first ultrasound at 10 weeks. It was amazing. From the begining I had a feeling I was going to have a girl and everyone around me said the same thing except for Rick he wanted a boy. So I saw two doctors for my entire pregnancy. At 17 weeks we found out the sex of the baby, and imediately started to look for names. We found "Liana" on the net it meant "God has answered" The perfect name for the perfect little angel. When I was 29 weeks I went in for a normal check up and my doctor told me I had low amniotic fluid (the fluid in side the sac the baby is in) so he sent me to the hospital, where they admitted me and did another ultrasound, it was lower than earlier. So my doctor came to see me in the morning and told me i needed to be on constant monitering and if the fluid went up he would send me home as long as the baby isn't in disstress. Well my fluid kepyt fluctuating, and I was in the hospital for 6 weeks. On June 3rd the Liana kept squashing her cord which is not a good thing. So the next day June 4th (35 weeks) The doctor told me he is going to deliver the baby via C-section

6:00pm came and they took me downstairs to prepare me for the surgery. Rick was in there with me, they gave me a spinal block with morphine so I felt nothing. When the doctor pulled Liana's head out she was screaming and crying. At that moment I felt refleif, joy, excitement, and worry. At that moment I knew I was someones mother. They looked at her, cleaned her up a bit and brought her to me for about 1 minute I was able to say hi and kiss her before they took her away. They had to make sure she was ok since she was a preemie. they took me to recovery and I wasn't able to see her b/c I was so out of it, I saw picture of her. The next day I had my pain meds and went to the NICU. I saw little baby for the first time. I cried It was amazing. There are no words to explain what I felt. I fed her and talked to her. She was the most beautiful thing in the world. The first time she looked at me with her beautiful eyes it melted me completely.

I was afraid that she would have to stay there for a long time. She was doing well. She was in the incubator(SP?) for a day and a half then moved to a regular bed/crib. I changed her diaper and did mommy kangaroo with her. It was the best. On the third day after my surgery the doctor discharged me and about an hour later I got a call from NICU saying my baby is ready to go home. I have never been so happy until they told me that. She passed all her test, eyes, ears and carseat.

It was amazing after 6 long weeks I had my baby in my hands going home with her.

After all I went through with my two angel baby boys God gave me a beautiful little angel baby girl to take care of. She truely is my Miracle Baby.

Now I am a sleep deprived momma and so proud of it.
