Our Beginning

When I was pregnant I had no issues while pregnant. I was so happy that we were going to have another little boy. I was so excited that we were going to be parents of 2. I always wanted a large family even though my husband wasn't to fond of it he agreed perhaps we will try for 3 or 4. We would see down the line. I did not know that perhaps these dreams would not be happening. Not because they couldn't but because my dreams would change. I changed. The moment I changed was when I had my little boy Austin Carl Eckstein on October 31st 2010 at 11:55pm. He was born 5lbs 6oz and 18 3/4 inches long. I was hoping for a vaginal birth but god had other plans for me. He decided that my body would not do what it was suppose to do and I would go via c section.

I have had a c section before so it was no big. I knew the recovery would be long but worth it. My little man was worth anything I had to go through. When they were doing my c section I knew something was wrong. I started to freak out. They had to give me medicine but it worried me that NICU was there and I didn't want another child in NICU. I wanted to avoid it. I did everything I was suppose to! He was wheeled away to the NICU. My hopes were dashed not only did I have a c section but my son was going to the NICU. I wouldn't be able to have him in my room. I wanted to be sleep deprived because of midnight feedings and the complications normal mothers had while they have their child in their room. Nope not me! 

I thought these would be my only problems but after so long I knew it wouldn't be. But here's some photos of my little man!



  1. Thank you for reading. I'll usually update after those whom are helping with him know. Like my parents, my mil, our grandparents and close family and such. So if it takes a while i'm sorry

  2. I'm so glad you got to lay him on your chest. It's a beautiful picture and I'm sure it was a beautiful moment.
    I am praying for Austin as well as you and your family.
    Love you Amber

  3. I'm praying not only for you but for baby Austin as well. It breaks my heart to see so many babies in the world struggling. If I could be there I'd give you a big {{HUG}} I'm soooo sorry that you are going through this, but know I am praying for you and your in my thoughts.
