Induction, birth and my “baby”

Eighteen years ago today, I found out that my amniotic fluid was not replenishing itself and my baby was at risk.

I was rushed to the hospital for an induced birth at 8 months gestation.

The induction worked great because 45 minutes later, I’d given birth to a 7 pound 12 ounce baby boy who we named Duncan.

Yeah, it was a WILD ride, let me tell you!

Today, Duncan turns 18 years old and I am THRILLED to see him launch himself into the world.

He’s not only survived low amniotic fluid, he’s also survived snorkeling with speedboats, getting stuck in a banyan tree, and numerous broken bones requiring surgery and pins.

HAPPY 18TH BIRTHDAY DUNCAN! I LOVE YOU AND AM SO PROUD OF YOU!
