Three years ago today I was in labor. All day. Katelyn wasn't born until after midnight, so her birthday is tomorrow, but I remember being in labor all day, the 28th. It's amazing what having a child can do to you, becoming a parent. I don't need to get into how thankful I am for Katelyn, and just how much I love her, I know that she knows.
What I am thinking about on this birthday is how innocent I was, assuming that I made it that far, I would be going home with baby in hand. I was Group B Strep positive with Katelyn. When I went into labor the Dr gave me an IV antibiotic to prevent her from getting GBS during delivery. That was that, I didn't think about it again.
Goodness, was I naive!!!
I had no idea just how dangerous and scary GBS can be. I had no idea that it would take the life of my next child. I had no idea. I had no idea.
