My name is Lesleigh, Fiances is Joe. We found out we were expecting our first baby October 20th 2010....We welcomed a daughter named Gracelyn on born July 6, 2011 at 3:43 pm. This was the best day of my life, the moment you see the baby you carried, that you waited patiently for, your life takes on a whole new meaning. My EDD was June 23, 2012, so yes I was 13 days overdue! The pregnancy was a bumpy ride, lots of hospital visits, and unexplained bleeding, my cervix started to funnel around 24 weeks, found out i was dilated 2cm and 50% at 28 weeks, I was 4cm & 75% effaced at 32 weeks and was told to expect her within the next couple weeks, I was on bedrest most of the pregnancy. I was induced on July 6th at 7am (labor was 8 hours, pushed for 20ish minutes) so for all you woman out there, don't always believe your doctor when they say you'll have a preemie. My finance and I have been together for 2 years, we met in June 2010. He proposed to me February 16, 2011. We are getting married November 4, 2012, He has been my best friend, my rock, my shoulder to cry on, my crutch to keep on going, he means everything to me and the good Lord couldn't have blessed me more!
On February 19,2012 I found out we were pregnant again, Gracelyn was 7 months at the time, and all 3 of us were excited! I'm due October 20, 2012! So I'm due 2 WEEKS before my wedding! I'm choosing to not be induced this time unless medically necessary!
