Special Day / Remembering 9 yrs Ago

Today is a special day in our home.

It's another birthday ~ Thaniqua's Birthday !!!!!!

Nine yrs ago today I went through a very scary time in my life. I was staying with friends because I had recently left a domestic shelter. We were getting a new apartment on April 1st. I had seen her father a couple days before her birth when he kicked me in the stomach. Anyway .......

I ate dinner Fried Chicken I will never forget. Later that evening my friends I was staying with we watched MTV & I didn't feel good. I felt like I was getting the flu again. I had been sick just 2 wks before that terrible. I went to bed and Ridge was sleeping with me. I woke up in the night feeling worse but never thought I was in labor. We had a ice storm so it was really bad out. I started cramping but never thought it was that bad. No contractions I could time close enough so I went back to sleep. A hr later I awoke to hard contractions. I woke my friend and she got her Mom who just happened to be a nurse. While she was getting her Mom up it was 3am. I felt like I had to push and before I knew it there she was. They had already called the squad which got directions messed up. They finally came seemed like forever. They cut the cord and Thaniqua was crying & doing well. I had problems delivering the placenta so they took me to the hospital and after about a half hr of being there it finally happened. I can remember they placed Thaniqua when I was in the squad right on my chest all wrapped up. I'm so glad things turned out fine. I can also remember the one squad member that stayed til we both were checked out fine. The same gentleman and his wife came to see us in the hospital later that day.

So at 3am Thaniqua made quite a arrival , one I will never forget.

God was def watching over us.

Happy Birthday Thaniqua Marie
