39 weeks of being pregnant

I found out I was pregnant at 9 weeks, about a month later sheldon asked me to marry him. At 16 weeks we picked names for a boy and a girl because at the time we didnt know what we would have, Stetson Robert Lowe & Emma Paige Lowe. At 19 weeks we found out we were having a baby boy, our son would be born April 4, 2011! We had both of our mothers in the room when we found out and after we at my favorite place CHILI'S, then we went SHOPPING for Stetson Robert. At 27 weeks we went driving around Ballinger, Texas to find a house for us to buy/rent! At 30 weeks we found out we got approved for a house and we would get to move in the first weekend of march. On the first weekend of march approached we find out it would have to wait a little longer. On March 6, 2011 I was 34 weeks and 5 days pregant we had our baby shower we had friends and family come we got EVERYTHING we needed and more! On March 12, 2011 we got to move into our new house. I finished up my senior year one march 18th, the next week i got to stay in our house and fix up everything for our little boys room! On March 27, 2011 i knew something was different. My back was having pains and my stomach was hurting, we had already had one false call so Sheldon told me if it got real back we would go in, by 1am on March 28, 2011 i had finally fall asleep but still had pain. At 6:00am March 28th Sheldon woke up for work and it woke me up, i begged him to stay home with me and he swore to me if he stayed home we woudnt have him. So Sheldon went on to work and I started having pains REALLY bad, the contraction were at 3 mins apart. Finally I got all dolled up, packed up and loaded my car up. I got in the car to drive to the hospital when i got not even a mile from home and had a BAD contration and i realized i wouldnt be able to drive myself. My mom came and got me and drove me to the hospital, they admitted me around 11:00am. I dialated FAST but i got stuck at an 8, it was around 7:10 when they came in my room and told me i would have to have a c-section. It was like a slap in the face, I cried didnt know if something was wrong with our baby. But finally at 7:45 Stetson Robert Lowe made his arrival in the world, 6.7lbs and 18.5 inches long!

Hard choices

Well, I'm starting this a little late but in this past year i have been going none stop busy. In one year I had a baby, went to my senior prom, graduated, and got married. Some people might say I'm to young to be a mom and married and maybe their right, but guess what when time got tough Sheldon(husband) and I got through it. Being pregant my senior year wasnt what I had in mind, but thats what god blessed me with and i made the best of it. Being a young mom is very hard, you can see it in people's eyes the disgrace they have for you. But I have a huge support systems standing be hind me, that I couldnt be more happy to have!
