Hello everyone! I wanted to share our story with you. It all started when I was 30 years old. My husband and I decided to try 1 last time for a baby boy. I had often said that once I hit 30, I would not have and babies due to all the birth defects etc. increasing. Every appointment was awesome until I reached 31 weeks. My blood pressure was up and I was swollen. I was admitted to the hospital for 24 hours. Before I was released the doctor decided to do an in depth ultrasound. My son had bees diagnosed with IUGR. Soon after I was induced. I was now 32 weeks. And had received steroid injection for his lungs. At midnight on April 20,2004 I was rushed to the OR for emergency c-section. My blood pressure was rising and his heart rate dropped.  Jarred Addison was born at 12:50 am. He weighed in at 3pounds 7 ounces 16 1/2 inches long. We spent 3 weeks in the NICU and have had so many changes. Jarred is now 11 years old and most recently diagnosed with Type1 diabetes in December 2014.
