Day 28 -What if you were pregnant or got someone pregnant, what would you do?
Well we can do this 2 ways....I did get pregnant. Curt and I were already planning on getting married. I just happened to have a bit of a belly when we did and we decided to expedite things a bit. It was a personal preference for us. We knew we loved each other and wanted to be married and we had no need for a big wedding and we both wanted to be married when the baby (Gunnar) was born. It was really that simple. I was never supposed to have children, Gunnar was a shock and a HUGE blessing. We were over the moon excited that I was even able to get pregnant and we both wanted to be parents. The only question we ever had was what date to get married.If I were to get pregnant now....it would be a very scary and difficult situation. There is no doubt in my mind (or Curt's I'm sure) that I would do everything humanly possible to keep the baby. That being said, Gunnar was our miracle child and we have been told many, too many, times over, that to try again would most likely result in the loss of life. Best case the baby, worst case both me and the baby. So to make sure that Gunnar has a mommy as long as I have the ability to make the conscious choice to be one, and so that Curt never has to choose between me and our child, we make sure not to get pregnant. After the 3rd or 4th doctor it was a pretty easy decision. We know our other options, foster care, adoption. We've gone rounds with the idea of foster care and I always come back to the same conclusion....I am not strong enough to give back a child I have loved. As for adoption, it's not in the cards for us now, but you just never know what the future will hold. I won't rule anything out.
