Thankful & Lucky


I have a lot of time to really think lately. I sit here day in day out for the past five days and I have eleven more days to go. Yes, I will admit I have been feeling sorry for myself and realized that is just pure stupid. I am able to go outside in a wheelchair, I am able to get out of my room. Also I am 34 weeks, most of these women here with the exception of 2 or 3 women. Really I am one of the lucky ones. Earlier today there was a lady who I believe was 25 weeks pregnant and she went into labor and they couldn't stop it. She had to have a c-section and I just feel so bad for her. Reason I say think she was so many weeks is you catch certain things while wheeling through the hallways. So tonight before I go to sleep I will pray that her and her child or children are safe and that they are recovering because today I am one of the lucky ones.

Hey Shawnee
I only just got my internet speed up so I just found out what happened to you and bubby. I am sorry to hear that you had some worrying news. But rest assured you are in good hands now, and you have good people to look after you and your baby. I hope everything will go well. Try not to worry too much, enjoy the final days of your baby belly - I hope we get to give birth together. We will be international friends for life. Chin up my friend! It's going to be all very different after the birth of your baby. :)

You're right, you are one of the lucky ones. Your baby is going to be just fine. Just think very soon you are finally going to be a mom. That's so exciting! Keep me posted.
