This Post will take a week!

A couple of weeks ago, my friend Marie blogged her pregnancy till the boys birthday. So I thought I want to do that! :) However lets' be honest blogging 3 all in one day would take a huge post! So I decided to break it up. Besides then you can check back every day to see the rest!

8 years ago I had a slight heart attack, due to I have a heart murmur and was on the Pill, they have no idea why, but all the sudden after the birth of Heath my body could no longer be on the pill. Kevin saw this as a Oh well we are done having kids anyhow, let's get fixed WHAT??? I was not on board, but Kevin went to the appt. for a Vasectomy without me! The morning of his scheduled out patient surgery, I cried all day, so long and hard the nurses were like "Sir, Are you sure she agreed to this?" He said "No, but she'll be fine..." (Nice Huh)
For the next 2 1/2 years I begged, pleated, bribed, and cried for him to get a reversal! On May 27, 2003 He was scheduled to do just that!
The day of his surgery did not go as planned, what was suppose to be a day in and out thing, ended up being Kevin and I in Colorado Springs for a couple of days, with Kevin in the ICU. How was I suppose to know he was allergic to anesthetics?? Yea so he is really bad actually, but see we can all laugh at this now right? You should hear his version! :) The doctor came out of that surgery very excited and proud and said to me "You will be pregnant in 3-6 months, that is how well we did and he went right back together!"
The following months were horrible for me! I am not patient, and was not giving it to God like I should have been. In December right at that 7 month point I begged, pleated and cried for Kevin to go get checked, after all something had to be wrong right? We had never had an issue before getting pregnant. Long story short, the first test said he had no sperm count the second test, however after learning the correct way to do the test, confirmed Kevin was just fine.
So back to waiting.... mind you at this point, I will be honest when I first begged and cried for Kevin to get fixed, it was because I wanted a girl. But as the time went on, and there was no baby at all, my heart was changed. As were my prayers, I began now praying "Lord, I want a healthy baby, boy or girl, I don't care, but just please can I have a baby" Everyone said to me, when the time is right it will happen. I to this day, can not stand this statement! I am sure it's true, but I can't stand to hear it!
In March, as I waited ever so patiently, I myself went to the doctor! She told me to get completely off Diet Pepsi, there is something in NutraSweet that does not allow you to be fertile, she put me on prenatal vitamins and told me to download an ovulation chart. That Sunday at Church, a young girl gave me a present, her name is Jessica she got me a book called "A Super Natural Childbirth" Can I just tell you how much I love this book. I now give it to all my friends as gifts and plan to purchase it not only for the 3 girls, but the boys wives as well.
Anyhow due to this book, and what I had learned from reading it. I had changed. I learned to pray different and specifically. So on April 8, 2004 I knew, that I knew, I had just conceived. So I began to pray right then and there "Lord, let this baby be healthy, and if at all possible, if not too selfish and your will, be a girl"
April 27, 2003 11 months to the day I found out I was pregnant! I took 3 home pregnancy tests, and then went to take a blood test, just in case! :)
"Mrs. Cooper, you are pregnant and due December 25" Are the best words I have heard in my life! I learned some valuable lessons these 11 months, Patience and giving it to God top that list.... Little did I know what was coming! :)

I still remember the email from Germany letting me know that you were having triplets - I was in shock too and I wasn't the one having them :0)
