I had a healthy pregnancy other than a high blood pressure the last month. I was induced at 39 weeks and then the trauma started. At 10 cm his heart rate dropped and no doctor was there. They called an emergency c section and by the time a doc rushed in they were in a panic and cut arteries to my uterus. I bled out profusely needing hundreds of bags of blood and platelets and on paper should have not survived. By the grace if god and help of many angels I woke up in the ICU intubated but alive. I was told they removed my uterus and an ovary to save my life. I still have 1 working ovary. I was unable to be with my son for a week. Thank god for the strength of my husband and family to get us through this emotional time. I have endured other medical issues and surgeries due to damage to other organs that occurred but am now finally healthy and spending quality time with my son. We are recovering emotionally and find using a gestational surrogate thee best way to reach our dream of another child and giving our son a sibling.
I am a loving, easy going, determined, honest, hardworking wife and new mother of a 6 month old miracle boy. My husband and I both dreamed of having our own children our entire lives. Even way before we met we each new we wanted a family with multiple children. We have been together for 14 years and married for 3. We are the most committed couple we know. We bought a home together with 2 extra bedrooms with dreams to fill them up with at least 2 children. We want to watch them play together in our yard and keep each other company when they are adults and throughout childhood as my husband and I both have very close relationships with our siblings. We both worked very hard at multiple jobs to save money for children and so I could go part time when I became a mom. We both have our mothers within one mile of our house who are more than ready to be grandmothers to more than 1 grandbaby. Every ounce of our life has been committed to our dream of children. That dream started to come true with the birth of our son and we embrace every second with him. We want nothing more than to complete our family. We live in Florida in the Tampa bay area and would like to be involved in all ultrasounds etc. of a surrogate pregnancy.
