Ezekiel's Birth Story - pt. 13
That was the last time I threw up during my pregnancy with Zekey. I would not go anywhere on a visit without Sam after that. Even when it had been months since I had thrown up..... Well, pretty much after that there wasn’t a whole lot of drama. There were a few things that happened where normally I don’t think I would have had the energy or presence of mind to take care of, but God gave me what I needed when I needed it. Praise you, Father!!! I eventually got better enough to start going on short walks and trips to the store. The pleasant part of my pregnancy lasted only about a month or two. One of the things that did involve a lot of drama happened around month six, I think. We moved from Corpus Christi, TX to Killeen, TX. Its really not that far as far as driving goes. The drama circulated around my prenatal care. Because I was on VA benefits, I had to switch VA Center. (Paperwork and legwork involved.) At first, because I didn’t know the area, when I was asked which hospital I wanted to deliver at, I chose the one closest to me. Logical choice, right? Not so much! I finally got around to going and taking a tour of the “birthing area” and boy was I in for a rude awakening. Upon arriving at the labor and delivery floor, I walked past the windows to the nursery where they keep the babies. You have to understand, that with Braden, I labored, delivered and then did postpartum all in the same room. They never took him from me except to get his circumcision done and Sam went with him for that.
