Jack is my youngest boy who will be 3 tomorrow.  I consider him my miracle baby for a few reasons.  First I had 2 miscarriages and then when I had some lab work done, the doctor said I had “low ovarian reserve” and that my chances of natural conception were very low.

I was pretty upset as I really wanted another child.  To make things harder for me, it seemed like all the mothers I knew were pregnant with their second child.  It just didn’t seem in the cards for me.

I could have seen a fertility specialist but decided if it wasn’t meant to be, it wasn’t meant to be.  

Then my mother died in July 2007.  Shortly afterwards, we went to the beach in August.  I was on a Ferris wheel with my son Kyle and I felt a little nauseated.  I thought, that’s wierd, I never get nauseated on rides.  I didn’t think much of it.

Later that month, I took a pregnancy test and found out I was pregnant!  And I was really scared because I thought I would have another miscarriage and I just couldn’t deal with another miscarriage along with losing my mom.

But lo and behold, the pregnancy went well.  I didn’t have any issues except the morning sickness and my feet swelling up near the end of my pregnancy.  Ironically, Jack’s due date was April 20th, one day before my mom’s birthday.  He was late, although not as late as Kyle, and was born on April 26th, 2008.

Jack Leon Mansfield - he was unexpected but most definitely a wanted baby and my miracle baby!  Plus with him being the youngest and me being the youngest in my family, I feel like there’s an even more special bond between us.
