I'm Danielle, I'm 23 years old. My husband and I have been together for almost 8 years and happily married for 5 of them. He just finished up his active duty term in the Marine Corps and is currently inactive reserves. We recently moved back to Ohio from Camp LeJeune, North Carolina. We got pregnant the first time, but unfortunately we lost that baby on January 13, 2006. Shortly after we got pregnant again and I gave birth to our little princess on October 18, 2006, we named her Brooklyn Elizabeth. A while later we ttc, but again I lost that baby on April 3, 2008, 5 days after my husband deployed to Iraq. We started ttc again when he returned home in October. On the morning of our 2 year wedding anniversary, January 29, I found out we were pregnant. It was a very hard pregnancy. At 16 weeks they discovered I had a placental abruption. I spent 2 months straight admitted in the hospital and the rest of my pregnancy on strict bedrest. We both were supposed to die but we're fighters! She somehow managed to hang on till 38 weeks and was born September 28, 2009. The doctors have no idea how. She truly is our little miracle and was worth everything I went through! On August 23, 2010 we unexpectedly found out that we were expecting again. At 35 weeks we finally found out that we would finally have our BOY!! Conlan Anthony was born April 15, 2011 at 38 weeks, 7 lbs 7 oz and 20 inches. I believe in EBF, Irelynn was EBF the first 4 months but due to some severe weight issues I had to start giving her formula as well. But she still breastfed for 19 months, she nursed all the way up to the morning that I went into labor with Conlan, I would've kept going but she quit on her own. Conlan is EBF. Irelynn is also ERF and will be until 40 lbs, as will Conlan.
