Oliver’s Birth Story

Yesterday my baby turned 1! I am so excited for him. He is such a joy to have in our family. He lights up the room. He is so funny and cuddly. I thought I would share his birth story with you. When I was pregnant I loved reading birth stories. I still love reading them.

Let’s rewind a bit. When Claire was just over 18 months I knew it was time to try for our last baby. I had my IUD removed in May. By July 10th I still hadn’t had a cycle and I was worried. I was older (who are we kidding, I am still older). What if we had problems bringing another baby to our family? My mom had an appointment for genetic testing with my same OB so I asked what I should do since it had been 8 weeks and still no cycle. He immediately gave me a prescription for progesterone to get me on track. I filled the prescription but didn’t start taking it. Scott and I were going on my DREAM trip on July 22nd and I knew I didn’t want to start my cycle on that trip. I was going to wait until I was home. However, by Wednesday my body had different ideas and I had my cycle. That meant that I would be ovulating while we were in Paris. I was so excited at the thought of getting pregnant on THIS vacation.
