My pregnancy with Finn was very tough. Our entire family went through so much during those 9 months. One of the hardest parts was being separated from my babies while I was in the hospital. Sadly, I missed some big milestones in my kids’ lives while faced with the reality that the baby and I were at very high risk. But even in my darkest moments laying in that hospital bed, missing my family terribly and fearful of losing my baby, I knew that I had to find my hope. And, it was that hope that got me and my baby through till the end. I am now a true believer that miracles can happen. We can never give up hope even in the darkest of times. Finn and I are living proof!
Getting to this final doctor’s appointment meant that we had almost made it to the finish line. I knew that my body had done its job and had kept my baby safe for even longer than the doctors had predicted. I had pictured this moment throughout my entire pregnancy. Getting to 37 weeks is considered full term medically and we had made it. I knew that once we got there, we’d be OK. As my doctor told me that we had a 6 pound babe ready to come into this world, I can’t even begin to tell you how proud and happy I was. It had been a long hard journey and knowing that we had made it together was an incredible moment and I’ll forever cherish this video footage that my amazing hubby captured.
