Day 20: T-4

Tuesday, August 11, 2009

It's a short one. Just so tired. We are doing well. Babies are high octane today but mommy... not so much. Feeling really wiped out and just wanting to nap all day. (Could have something to do with having a nurse interupt my sleep last night for no reason... Sorry, did I say that out loud? It wasnt even my nurse for Pete's sake!)

But here we are! 4 more days til 24w (well, actually, 3d5h15m but, again, who's counting???) And, happy news, I was given REAL bathroom priviledges for #2. (Still using the potty chair for the peeing every half hour, but I'm not looking a gift horse in the mouth!). Dr. B. comes back next week and, if I could I'd dance, I'm still going to be pregnant! (And in a new countdown!)

Also, I was really shocked by the amount of responses I got to my previous post. It was very unexpected. Sometimes we have to write to get stuff out and I guess I didnt expect the support and outpouring on a post that has nothing (well not a lot) to do with IF, loss, pregnancy, etc. I thought people might think "man, could she have written anything longer???" and might even skip it altogether. But I'm grateful that people took the time to read it and to understand this aspect of our journey. Truly.

Hurrah for T-4! I'm thinking you're going to hold onto those babies for many more precious weeks, so I can't wait til the new countdown begins!

I couldn't get to my computer until now, so wasn't able to send a comment for your last post. Here is what I tried to post from my cell phone:

Your post was breathtaking. It is very apparent to me that God decided to utilize you as a true ANGEL ON EARTH, because that is what you are.

Just remember that even the most agonizing storm brings a rainbow at some point. I really hope you get that in the form of your sweet children Bobby and Maya joining your family... many, MANY weeks from now.

It's so nice to read how well everything is going, yet I do hope you get some rest. :)

Peace, my friend.

Michele, I too sat here at work checking in on you and thought to myself, whew, that is long. I will just read the beginning and come back. I couldn't stop. I was crying and wipping tears as another co worker asked what was going on and I couldn't even begin to share your story. You are amazing. God Truly has laid his hands upon you for strength. Your love and devotion to your husband and your head on attitude towards a challenge are what make me admire you so much.

I am so grateful to say that I read your blog and draw from it. You help me to see that we can get thru most anything. You are proof.

Hang in there. I know we are all looking forward to your new countdown to begin because after all, you and Peter will hold these precious babies when they are healthy and looking you right in the eyes. I just know it.

I find when the little dude is more active, all I want to do is nap. I bet there's a connection...

Get some rest, enjoy all the little perks, and know that you and your little ones are in my prayers.

Re: Your last post. When people like myself follow someone online. It feels like I am checking up on my sister, not just reading a page with stats on it. So when you shared that part of you with us, its like a piece to the puzzle that was missing. I hate that this is your story (or any one for that matter) but touched you trust us enough to share so much. You amaze me so much and I swear, before you said, live each day and the way you said it, I literally took it to heart. If not for you, I don't know where I would be right now. I already live in panic land but at least I am enjoying it. Thanks to you. xoxo, Kandi
