Titus; To God be the Glory!

Standard

I am writing this because I feel compelled to publicly give glory to God for the health of Titus. So here is the story; When I get pregnant I get SICK, I mean more then one run to the bathroom per day and the rest of the day is spent on the couch trying to keep food down. So of course with Titus I was sick and this was to be expected but at my first ultrasound I found out I had placenta previa on top of being sick. For those of you who don’t know what that is it’s where your placenta is covering part or all of your cervix and if it doesn’t correct itself can cause some major problems. I also had an infection around this time too. Eventually I got over being sick, my placenta corrected itself and I got over the infection. Now we move ahead to when I was about 5 months along, I got giardia, giardia is a type of ameba that makes you very sick and miserable, the symptoms are diarrhea and vomiting with extreme nausea. My Dr told me there was nothing they could do b/c of the baby… so I suffered until it got really bad and I went to a night clinic and they did give me some meds, I got better, for a week, and then it came back. I got better again and it came back again!! 3 times I had giardia! It was terrible and very discouraging! After I finally got over all the giradia I got another infection, which thankfully resolved quickly. I was ok for a little while till my children decided to share a cold with me. Theirs went away, mine turned into bronchitis and sinusitis, I was once again miserable. I got on some antibiotics but had a terrible reaction to them to had to switch to another kind, they finally worked. Once again I was ok for a little while until I had a ultrasound and found out I had too much amniotic fluid. I went home and looked it up online and it could mean all sorts of terrible things or nothing. A week went by and I had another appt and my belly had grown two inches in a week! So my Dr said this baby needs to come out! So that evening we met our son. I just want to give God all the glory for giving me a perfectly healthy baby in spite of everything my body went through during this pregnancy!
