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!
