May 11th, 2008

I could have given birth today. I could be nursing, right now, too. And again in two hours... I would also be recovering from another Cesarean, most likely. But I would have had my baby. Time sure does fly, whether you're having fun or not. Honestly, I felt like this day would be forever in coming. And I worried that once it came, I'd be a wreck. I'm not, though. Surprisingly. I'm sad, disappointed. And confused. But I'm okay.

I'm also a mother to another wonderful, sweet (moody), healthy boy. So happy mother's day to me! And to all the other wonderful women out there, who love as mothers do
(because a baby doesn't make a mother; love does). And I'm grateful to have the love of my wonderful mothers, and the love of my child. *B

  10. I am in the same position today... I miscarried exactly two years ago today and it is hard. I am doing okay because I have hope for the future with the adoption process but I WONDER about the past. How can you not?! Hang in there and be strong... that is all we can do! Hugs to you from me!

  11. After my first miscarriage, I dreaded my anticipated due date. But, like you, I was surprised that I wasn't more of a wreck. I was disappointed and saddened but I was stronger by that point as well. And more able to understand and empathize with others. Thanks for sharing with us.

  12. Do the research yourself and make the decision yourself. Do not let the doc make the decision for you.
