Just some updates

I guess I haven’t been a good blogger these days. I don’t really have much going on just now. Trying to get it all together for Christmas but would you believe that I haven’t even started my baking. This is so unlike me. Usually I am done by now. We are having a house full so I better get at it and soon.

A few updates on Pea that I thought I would mention. Craig and I have been keeping it mostly to ourselves for reasons unknown. Not saying it out loud, I guess.

For the most part this pregnancy has been smooth sailing and we really have no complaints and no problems. I have, exactly 4 times now, had some spotting. Each time I saw the Dr., it was nothing to be concerned about. I had a polyp on my cervix. Today we saw the Dr. again about it and he told me that I had a sensitive cervix – no polyp. The mere act of walking might trigger me to spot.

Still, the Dr. is not concerned about it as there are no other signs or symptoms. No cramping or anything like that. He has referred us for another ultrasound just to make sure that nothing has changed since week 16 (aside from the size of the baby of course).

Pea is moving well and moving alot. The Dr. chased the heartbeat today. I am feeling Pea move so often now and at all times of the day. I really only get a chance to enjoy it when I am at home in the evening relaxing. Somedays while at work, typing away I get enjoy Pea moving. Other days, I am too busy to take a minute and sit still.

We did not tell anyone about the spotting until today. I guess we did not want to cause anyone to worry about it. We are told that the baby is doing well and not to worry. Of course, now that we are parents there will probably never be another worry free day in our lives.

You sometimes have wonder why it is always seems to be difficult. Some people drink, smoke and do drugs while pregnant and have perfectly healthy babies that they don’t even want. Other people try a lifetime for a baby they can’t even have. It really isn’t fair. All I know is that we will do whatever we can to protect and care for our baby.

My opinion is that adoption is the most loving thing a mother can do for her child….I can’t imagine the hardship that comes with that, but, letting go and giving life…WOW….what a gift!

I agree. Having seen all sides of it now. Including pursuing it, we were a year away from going that route and already looking into it and thinking about it.

When I was working with an Adoption Licensee, I met a young girl who was 18. Her and her boyfriend, very much in love and intending to one day get married but found out they were expecting. I worked with her for months showing her Perspective Adoptive Parents portfolios. She has left an imprint on my soul because she was just an amazing person. She gave her baby to a couple that had been waiting for years. I was there when they first met each other and without a doubt I can say that Adoption is the most unselfish gift that she gave her baby. She wasn’t ready to parent.
