Bizarre Thought

It just dawned on me that I'll come home from the hospital weighing roughly 50 lbs LESS than the day I got pregnant.

Tomorrow I start the clear liquid diet again for the 24 hours preceding potential surgery. Then Thursday is (hopefully) surgery day.

But I'm feeling a little more peaceful. God will deal with it. And Jesus didn't die so I could be saved-but-totally-freaked-out-beyond-belief.


((Lucy)) I like that last line. Two weeks before I was due, I went into labor (which was normal for me) and had a complete meltdown. The previous birth had been so traumatic, I freaked, and begged my dh not to make me do this! I actually had shock symptoms. Well, later that night at the hospital, labor stopped, and that little stinker stayed in there another three weeks! By the time labor really started, I was settled and ready and not at all crazy, which was a big relief for my dh!!!

BTW, her birth was the easiest I had. Figures.

Looking forward to good news, and praying for you.

Wow! Exciting news! May you continue in God's peace. I too love your last line. :-)

hey lucy-
at some point, my midwife told me that when I came to a point where I said, "I don't care if I'm pregnant forever, I feel great!" that was when birth was just around the corner.
She took a trip to Sacramento the week I was due, and she said, "If you start to feel that way, call me and I'll be on the next plane home!"
