The doctors told me that I would go into labor within 24 hours but I kept trying to tell them I wasn't having contractions. A week later and no contractions they released me from the hospital telling me that I was going to be back soon. They were brutally honest and told me that I might deliver a stillborn child. I am not going to say it was mother's instinct but I knew this baby would be born alive. As if this all wasn't bad enough when my water broke Mac was in a breach position with one leg up by his head and one leg crossed in front of him. That is when we knew for sure that I was going to have to have a C-section when the time did come.
From 16 weeks on I received shots to help mature his lungs every week. Oh boy did they hurt! It seemed like every week I was having an ultrasound but it always showed good blood flow through the cord. The reality of our situation was Mac had 1% chance of surviving. At 29 weeks Mac decided he had enough and was ready to meet the world.
When he was born he weighed 2 pounds 14 ounces and was 14 1/2 inches long. He was so tiny! He spent 2 months in the NICU. Amazingly he had minimal problems after he was born. He is definitely a fighter! He is our miracle baby.
