We all love being a mom, before we talk about mom life, share with us who you are. We want to know your story- what do you love to do? what are you passionate about?
My name is Delia Meza, and I am a first grade teacher at a DPS school. I am currently doing my masters and hope to graduate soon! This mom job, teacher job, and being a student is killing me. I am big on family. I love to spend time with them and do even the tiniest things together. My three younger siblings are my world, and closest friends. Maybe that’s why I have a hard time being alone. I met my husband ten years ago at UNC and we are hitting our 5th anniversary already. He is my rock and inspires me to do so much more! I am super passionate of helping others, which is why I love teaching!
Mom is a title we are all proud of, tell us your birth story!
I never had my pregnancy planned out. We bought a house got married and thought life was good, if it happened it happened. I found out I was pregnant out of curiosity, I guess. I just took a test and it came out positive. I remember it was my sister’s graduation and we were so excited to share the news to the entire family. It would have been my mommas first grand baby. But God had other plans. One night I noticed some bleeding and decided to go check it out. At the emergency room my world turned upside down. There was no little sack in the images. You sure you are pregnant? I mean I had taken three tests and they were all positive. They tested my blood and once again positive. I had to go to my OBGYN where again blood tested positive, day after day but still there was no baby on the images. My hormone levels weren’t increasing like a normal pregnancy would. After a biopsy, which was the worst, it was concluded that my baby was in my fallopian tubes. I had to take some pills to ” push it out” as they said. It became a dark place for me after that we weren’t able to try again until three months later because of the treatment I was in. I was depressed and mad at the world. Why me!? I just wanted to burry this event and not think about it ever again. Two months passed and we just let ourselves go. We weren’t trying to get pregnant, we just had fun and reconnected as a couple. Six weeks later I noticed that my all time favorite chocolate had a weird taste. I commented to my colleague and she disagreed. I felt a knot in my throat. I can’t be, I can’t be. I ran home and took a pregnancy test only to find myself wishing it was negative. But of course, it came out positive. I remember crying in the yard waiting for my husband to arrive. I was so scared to live that nightmare again. But like I said, God has his plans. I had a healthy pregnancy, the best! No morning sickness or strange cravings. Nine months later, 17 hours of labor, and 40 minutes of pushing I had my little one December 7, 2017. He is my world!
