I'm due September 15th. I'm 18 weeks today. This will be my first and my hubbys 3rd kid. He is 44 and I'm 24 he has a boy who's 21 and a girl who is 19. Both of his kids were also born in September. We were mutual friends through my abusive ex boyfriend. He had moved into the apartment me and my ex were sharing with 4 other guys after his son moved away. Finally I got enough courage to break up with my ex and Rick and I began hanging out more and he stood up for me when my ex abused me again, I was still living at the apartment. I never thought I would fall for an older guy but he was very sweet. I took care of him when he got a really bad sinus infection and was bedridden for a few weeks, finally convinced his stubborn ass to go to the hospital for help. Well he got better and then I got sick and he took care of me. We had known each other for a year before this had happened. We started dating and then a month later we had to move out because my ex wouldn't stop destroying my belongings and animals, I had to get a restraining order against him just so he couldn't attack me while I moved out my stuff which he tried too. So me and Rick had no where to go, we lived in a U-Haul for over a month and then a motel, a tent then finally was approved for an apartment. When we lived in the U-Haul we found out that we were pregnant. When we finally got the apartment I was excited that our life was finally getting better the BAM I had a miscarriage due to the stress I was under because I wasn't working and the state was threatening to take both Rick and I off disability and were harrassing me plus my ex continued to violate the restraining order. The judge did nothing. All I could think of was great I'm going to be pregnant living in the back of a U-Haul again, having to wash up in a store bathroom and live on hot pockets that I could heat up in the stores microwave. Not shower for months yet again. Anywho we were able to stay here but after the miscarriage my cat died from a reaction to the microchip that was put into her when she got spayed. I ended up gaining 80 lbs. Rick and I got married the next year. Now almost 3 years after the loss we are finally blessed with this amazing gift. I couldn't be happier. I'm loving life. Our 2 year wedding anniversary is the 20th. Life is great. Thank you everyone for congratulating me. And congratulations to you also.
