30 weeks

This weekend marks 30 weeks into this pregnancy. It's a good feeling- because it means there is a high likelihood that I will make it to my scheduled c-section on November 17th (38 weeks). However, it is also hard- gets harder by the day in many ways- I am getting so close to where my happiness was shattered after Noah was born. That is what I know..

41 weeks of healthy pregnancy
relativily uncomplicated delivery
a beautiful baby who looks just like his daddy
36 wonderful hours being a 'normal' mummy
rushed to NICU
rushed to SICK KIDS
rushed to surgery
a forever good bye

This is what I know- this is MY 'norm', this is what happened after a full, happy and healthy pregnancy. This is why the end of pregnancy is scary to me. because there are no securities, there are no assurances, there is just- me and Matt, doing this again, praying, hoping and asking that it will be different- but unsure of any of the future. unsure of everything except that our first experience now means that I will never kiss my first born child again.

Nice to see you back, Jane. I get you, I so get you. My only experience ends in going in to be checked at 40 weeks 4 days and finding no heartbeat. Then delivering a silent baby. I wish I could believe strongly in the happy outcome we're supposed to get - eg, taking your baby home. I'm right behind you, 30 weeks on Tuesday and doing the best that I can.
I'm glad you're hanging in there, too.
