Success Story: Our Miracle Baby (after 11 Years)!
Hi, my name is Amanda, I have been married for 12 years. My husband & I tried for 10 years to have a baby! Finally on March 10, 2004 we found out I was pregnant! We were so excited!! When I was 8 weeks we found out that we were having NOT 1 but TWO little Bundles of Joy! Everything seemed to be going Great, until my 19th week of pregnancy! I went into preterm labor, By the time I got to the Dr.'s office I had already dialated 6 cm. The Dr. told my husband & I that there was nothing they could do, and that we would lose both of our babies! I gave birth to Mason & Brianna, on Aug. 16, 2004. Unfortunately, they passed away, in my arms after living only 30 minutes! We then had to bury them! My husband & I didn't understand why God took our babies, but we still served, and trusted him! God was our strength!! After I lost our twins the Dr. found that I had an incompetant (week) cervix. That is what caused me to go into preterm labor! The Dr. told us the next pregnancy they could do a cervical cerclage, (which is where they stitch your cervix together) We are Christians! God spoke to my husband & I, and told us 7 or 8 times through out our marriage that we would have a baby! Well, 6 mths later after we lost our babies I took another pregnancy test & it was positive! We were very excited! I had to have the surgery (cervical cerclage at 12 weeks of pregnancy)! When I was 35 weeks pregnant the Dr. said it was time to take the cerclage out (stitches), and that it would be any day! Well I went 3 more weeks & 5 days later! The Dr. couldn't believe that I was still carrying Caleb, That's what my GOD can do! I know that God healed my boby, so that our MIRACLE Baby Caleb would grow up & be his servant! I had Caleb Seth on Oct. 28, 2005. He weighed 5 lbs. 11 ounces. He is now 13 mths old & we still thank God for him everyday! Don't ever lose hope! Keep your eyes on God & he will see you through anything! Caleb is Truely our miracle baby! The Dr.'s told me that I was too small to ever concieve a baby I weighed 89 lbs when I got pregnant with our twins. I tried everything to gain alittle weight, so I could get pregnant. After I lost Mason & Brianna I kept some of the weight, (104) and that's when I got pregnant with Caleb! Things always happen for a reason, though we may not understand! If we will always put God first in our lives things will work out for the best! I now weigh 92 lbs. and we are ready for another Miracle from God! We know he's able!! I hope my testimony will heal your brokeness! Don't ever give up! Thanks & May God Bless! Amanda ,
