We have been speaking with our Birth mother for about 2 weeks now! And that means 2 less weeks to wait! We have about 13 weeks more to go. She did deliver her twins early @25 weeks, but there’s no indication from her Doctor or mine that early labor is going to happen again….but of course we pray and pray and pray for full term!!!!
‘A’ is up-beat, content in her decision, and typically refers to “the baby” as “your baby”! Each time we talk, we both can’t seem to get off the phone with out thanking the other person for who they are as they are such a huge blessing!!!!
After going through so much loss and being so uncertain if Taryn was going to come home, I set my mind that I was not going to buy 1 thing until we brought our baby home. Then! We would do a shower and celebrate!!!!!
But, after talking to ‘A’ and hearing the certainty in her voice I can’t help but let my imagination take off and start planning how we are going decorate his room and what furniture to pick out.
I found a very simple design from Restoration Hardware that is just so perfect.
It is navy blue, and grey and is a ticking stripe style. We know we love the bedding…but we don’t know how we are going to paint and what kind of stripe design do we want on the walls??? In a few days life will settle down and we can start thinking about all this obsessively! =-). So! I guess I’ve decided that, planning for our little man’s arrival is going to happen for sure before he gets here…and not afterwards!
Please keep ‘A’ in your prayers. She has a cold right now, is getting bigger and more tired and uncomfortable. She goes in for the standard gestational diabetes test on Friday and I’d love it if you could remember her then, and pray the test is negative. (all preggos have to have the test). Also, pray for her strength. She sounds extremely strong and sure of her decision, but there is always a chance that her heart could change. She says it won’t once she delivers….I just pray for peace and clarity for her.—& strong nerves for the hus and I!!!!
