21+ years ago, I was told I was expecting, I told the doctor he must be crazy because I was pretty sure I was not and so he sent to have an ultra-sound.
(yea, back in the day not every Dr. had their own machine and they didn't use them ALL the time)
When the ultra sound was done, the doctor and I could see a little sac, but there was nothing in it that we could see. He advised me to go back to see my doctor and have a DC preformed.
neither of these are my ultra sounds...I found them on the web When I went in to visit with my regular Doctor he said, "Janiece, I will not do a DC on you...will you trust me and wait 1 more month and then have another ultra-sound done?"
I was thinking to myself...what ever...
So, I waited and again made a trip back to the same doctor who had done my previous ultra-sound. He was surprised to see me in his office, but not near as surprised as he was when he put the wand on my belly, and there set a little baby...waving his hand at us!!
He went and found the video of my previous visit, looked at it...and measured the little guy hanging out...sucking his finger and waving again at him...
The doctor said in a confused voice...we should have seen him...
I COULD NOT BELIEVE MY EYES or what I was hearing...I was 5 months pregnant!!
and there he was...a miracle...
Derek Burgess was born
by C-section, by Dr. Wood, the doctor who would not give up on him at only 18 weeks gestation,
he came into the world 3 weeks early and got to hang out at the hospital for a week and only because he was a little yellow.
Derek has always been a cutie with his wonderful smile and blue eyes.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABA...I LOVE YOU I can not wait to see you in 5 months!
