Lynette's Book Chapter 2

Do you have a funny experience to share? What are some of the silly or stupid things you did?

When Eli was a few days old, I was changing him in the hospital. I had him propped on a pillow so that I could reach him better. (I had had a c section) I had just taken his diaper off and was fixing to put the other one under him when he sneezed. That sneeze made him poop and pee all over me. I was laughing so hard that I peed myself. (I hadnt regained control over my bladder yet) My hubby just thouht funniest thing ever and started laughing. In return, guess what I did...laughed and peed some more.

Has there been a time in your life that you felt the world was falling apart?
The day I found out I was miscarrying was the worst day of my life. I dont know if I really felt it was crumbling, but it definitely wasnt how I wanted it to be. I didnt lean on God to get through it. (I wasnt established on that path yet). I wasnt mad at him either though. I just knew she/he was going to heaven and would be alright.

Has God ever worked a miracle in your life or in the life of someone you know?Has God ever worked a miracle in your life or in the life of someone you know?
God has worked many miracles in my life. I may not have seen them at the time but he has. I don't have one big one.

How has difficult times affected your marriage?
When Charlie and I miscarried I kind of blamed him for it. I was so upset that he wasnt there for me at the hospital.( It wasnt his fault. My mom told me we could call if needed) I never wanted to tell him that so, i just kept it to myself until recently. After letting it out, things got so much better. It also damaged are intimate life. I tried so hard to have another one after losing our baby, it put a damper on our love life.

What fears have you struggled with? What fears have you struggled with?
After miscarrying, I fear that I will again every time I get pregnant. I am scared up until I have them. I am still scared that something will happen even after they are born.

Do you feel that God has a plan for your life?
I do feel he has a plan for me and my family. He has a plan for eveyone. I am just not sure what that plan is yet.

What has been the hardest moment of your life so far? I have never had to hand my child over after delivering. I guess the hardest thing for my was going home to wait for my baby to pass. The pain from that physically was worse than labor or anything I had endured. The emotional pain was even worse.


  1. That hospital story would definitely make me pee if I were there too!! Too funny!
    The fear of repeating the unthinkable with each pregnancy would weigh heavily in any woman's mind who has experienced it before. I am not aware if you are finished having children, or still trying for more - but I hope that you will not have walk that again.

  2. We are wanting to have 2 more. I am hoping to never walk that road again either. If I do, I know that it is all in God's hands.

  3. I've done that before too (peed my pants from laughing too hard), good ol' C-sections, huh! I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't know what God's plan for their life is. Really neat learning more about you! ~Debbie

  4. Your story is funny! I've definitely peed my pants a few times! lol

    I have that same fear too. I have levels where my fears ease up a little. They are once I'm out of the first trimester, once I hit 24 weeks, and then once they are born. Of course then I worry about SIDS. I remember many occasion where I would wake up to make sure Kyndra was still breathing.

    That had to be so hard to just wait for your baby to pass. :(

  5. I have peed my pants to & that story is so funny. I'm also so sorry for your loss. I can relate this past pregnancy with losing 2 before this one. I think I worried myself sick at times. praying for you HUGS :)
