Thank you, I'm really enjoying it too.You've had quite a fair share of miracles there! Thank you for sharing, they were very touching. 

Quoting 1crazymomx1:

I love this post. It is so nice to see these wonderful stories. I have had several miracles. I had aplastic anemia when I was 10. I passed out at school one day (I had been sick all summer/fall and my mom didn't do anything about it) the school nurse took one look at me and called my mother and told her to take me to a dr or she was calling DHHS. I went and had blood work done. I had virtually no blood count. They said if I was home one more day I would have died. They gave me a week to live at that point. That was 24 years ago.

I tried to commit suicide several times and I really should not have made it with some of them, but always pulled through somehow.

I had a rollover accident when I was 21, I rolled my car 3 times (snowing) and came out of it with minor scratches and bruises.

When I was 22 I had an ectopic pg, the dr I saw kept saying it was a miscarriage- I had already had them, no way were they close in pain- I went 3 months in agonizing pain, going to the ER several times. They kept saying it was just a miscarriage too. Finally the Dr ordered a HCG test, he called right away and said to go into surgery the next morning. They removed the baby and said my tube should have burst. They don't know how it didn't.

My son is my biggest miracle. We had been trying for 7 years. I had not been able to carry any past 8 weeks. I was finally diagnosed with PCOS. They started me on Metformin. I got too sick on it and came off. The dr wanted to wait for 2 months before starting hormones for IVF. The month after I stopped metformin I got pg with DS. I had a horrible pg. I had my appendix removed at 8 wks pg, had gestational diabetes- 5 shots of insulin a day, then diagnosed with cholestasis of pg. I gave birth to our miracle at 35 wks and other than having allergies and asthma he is a happy and healthy 5 year old.

My personal miracle is my now 10yr daughter. She was born 5 weeks early, weighed only 3lbs. 14ozs but was healthier than I was. She needed no oxygen and no other kind of medical intervention at all. She was actually ready to be released from the hospital before I was. She began trying to nurse the evening she was born, she didn't have the translucent looking skin that most preemies have and she didn't appear to be way smaller than her skin at birth. She was filled out like a full term baby and looked like a full term baby with the exception of just being small (16ins.) She was born by c-section and was screaming before she was even all the way out. And then she grabbed the surgical sheet off my belly and the doctor had to remove it from her fingers. Now at 10yrs of age, she is still just as healthy as she came into the world being. She is living proof that prayer works and that God is still in the business of miracles. Thanks for reading.

This was basically me, minus some of your details. I'm almost 25 and healthy as can be. I was also 3 pounds, the doctors said I was full term, just tiny! I'm so glad you shared this. :)

I was born at 24.5 weeks gestation in February 1987 and almost died three times.  It's a miracle that I am here. I was in the hospital for 7 months due to my premature lungs. I had to have open heart surgery as a baby, have 1 kidney that works like 2 but it's connected.  I had tubes all throughout my body and you could see through my skin as it was transparent.  My doctors (I had 3) and nurses thought I wouldn't make it. I was on an apnea monitor for the first year of my life and had to have dailty visits to the hospital to make sure I was okay.  When I've shared my story online before I've been told I was a liar because "there's no way a 24.5 week old could survive in 1987" but I'm proof of that.  I was born in Byrn Mawr Hospital in Byrn Mawr, PA.

 I was 29 when pregnant and had a wonderful pregnancy until about 6 weeks before she was born. I had gone in for a routine check-up and my blood pressure was slightly elevated. I was on bedrest for the next 4 days then back to the doctor; it was still up so they put me on bedrest either until it went down or until i delivered. I stayed on bedrest for 6 weeks going to the doctor 2 times each week, once for an ultrasound and stress test and the other for stress test only, anyway, they couldn't pick up her heartbeat so I was sent to the hospital for observation. Started getting steriod shots for her lungs and was sent home the next evening with orders to return to the doctor the next day for the last of 4 shots; at this visit my bp was 180/188 so I was sent back to the hospital and told to prepare for induction the next day. Three days later I was seen by a high-risk specialist and told that my placenta had stopped working and that it would be better for me to have my daughter and her possibly need medical help rather than continue to carry her and her not recieving anything from my body so induction was started but failed to work and she was delivered approx. 25 hrs later. Thanks for liking my post and glad to read your comment also. Glad you were born without complications and are still doing well. God Bless!

Oh my goodness!!!! You really are a miracle. Do they have pictures? If they do you should blow one up and hang it on your wall. :)

Of course, you're welcome. I'm also very glad to read that you and your daughter didn't have any complications. I know a person who had the placenta detach and they didn't know, they lost the baby at 7 months. So very sad. You're lucky the doctors caught that and were keeping a very good eye on you! It's a very good thing she was born when she was, and amazingly enough born healthy! Thank you, Best of wishes to you and your precious daughter!
