Hey all, my name is Ariel.
I came into this world October 12th, 1992. I have had a lot of problems
through my life just like anyone else, but I am glad to say I have
finally found happiness!
On October 9, 2012 I gave birth to my first daughter Jayde Ann. I got a morphine shot to help me sleep because I had got no sleep the night before and even after 3 hours of contractions I was still only dilated to 3 cm. Within an hour and a half Jayde's heart rate dropped way down to 20-30 bpm and I was still not dilating past 3 cm. We got her heart rate back up, but it went down again when the nurse I had wanted me to switch sides. So I had to decide to do a c-section or wait and see if it dropped again. I choose the c-section. It was better for her. She was born October 9, 2012 at 3:45 pm. She weighed 7 lbs 13.5 oz and was 19.5 inches long. I tried to breastfeed her, but only could for a month and a half. She was born with blue eyes and blonde hair. Her hair now is a reddish color and her eyes are still blue, but with a brown ring around both of them.
On April 8, 2014 I had my second daughter Eris Rose. I got induced on April 7, 2014 and labored for 27 hours. The nurses were shocked I waited until 1:30 am to get an epidural, but honestly I couldn't get it until then lol. I was tensing up really bad during contractions and it was causing me to not progress and I was exhausted as well. After I got the epidural I slept really well. I dilated from 2-3 cm to 4-5 cm in two hours after the epidural, from 4-5 cm to 6-7 cm in another two hours, from 6-7 cm to 8 cm in an hour, from 8 cm to 9.5 cm in a half an hour and from 9.5 cm to 10 cm in 0 minutes. I pushed for 2 hours and had Eris Rose at 10:10 am on her due date April 8, 2014. She was 6 lbs 4.7 oz and 19 inches long. She is EBF! She was born with black hair and dark blue-grey eyes. I thought they were brown at first. I am very curious to see what color hair and eyes she'll have in the future.
Me and my fiance, Blake, have been unofficially engaged since October 9, 2013. I don't have a ring, but I don't believe jewelery defines being in love with someone and wanting to spend the rest of your life with them. We had dated twice before and we have never been able to stay away from each other. Even when we weren't dating we remained really good friends and still would talk to each other about everything. We are meant to be. He was so happy when he met Eris.
Blake is my soul mate. It has been a rough road, but in the end we always came back to each other. He is 23 yrs old and was born July 22, 1990. He has two beautiful children aside from Eris. He has a son named Joseph who was born March 19, 2011 and another daughter named Eris who was born February 10, 2013. We fight just like any other couple, but we always kiss each other good night. He is a wonderful man and a magnificient daddy.
I have 5 siblings and I am the oldest of them all! My mom and dad had me, but unfortunately couldn't be together for more than a year and a half. My mom has 2 kids with my ex-stepdad. My sister Alex who was born October 27, 1995 and my brother Marcus who was born August 23, 1998! My dad has three kids besides me not with my mom. I have a sister who is around 16 who I haven't met, my brother Joshua who is 9 and my brother Nicholas who is 4! I love my siblings although I don't know anything about my dad's daughter and don't know much about his 2 sons I just met them when I was 18! No matter what though I will always be there for my siblings!
I look up to my mom all the time. We had a lot of problems when I was a teenager, but I think now she is seeing I wasn't always in the wrong. I love my mom no matter what and I always try to be there for her. Especially lately because she is going through a divorce, but she has finally met a man who treats her right. He is only about a year older than me which I thought was weird at first, but he treats her right and my mom is finally getting her smile back. She is hoping to get the divorce over soon so they can get married March 2013, but we will see. I was asked to be her Maid of Honor and of course I said yes!
