A Thankyou to everyone....

I just wanted to thank everyone for their suport durring the last 9 months, heck, even before that. I guess I should thank everyone for the past year! I go in tonight to start the induction. I have to say that I am so very very nervous. As the time has been drawing near I have been remembering things from my last L&D that I would rather not remember. (I was the one with the very horrific experience) It is really funny how your mind works. I am taking these memories in the most positive form I possibly can, to be better prepared and to be way more aggresive with my own health care and well-being. Still, I can't help but wonder what rock there is that I have left unturned.

To all those other Mommies that read the month clubs ahead of you.... I have done the same thing. December Moms, January, Febuary....... I have read all the birth stories and put them away in my mind as something to look forward to, something to believe in. and you know what? the fact that my time is here is amazing. Time will play tricks on you. I don't know if any of you are "nesting" but good lord! I have been cleaning since December! Just make sure you take time to cherish all of this, the good and the bad. We as women are so amazing, don't doubt your ability to do this! (easier said than done eh?)

And to the amazing ladies on here that I call my friends. Thank you. From the bottom of my heart I thank you for being in the same boat as me. I thank you for being hormonal, big as a house, scared, irritated, uncomfortable, worried, happy, elated, productive and confident. The fact that I was able to go through this with you has really made all the difference.

And to everyone else....
The only thing that I can say is that after reading pretty much every post on here for over a year....this is what I have learned: Don't rely on the internet in ANY form to answer questions for you. Call the doctor 50x a day if you have to. Go to the doctor if you feel something isn't right. If you don't like how your healthcare is going, fire that doctor and find one you trust, or get a 2nd opinion. You have to be your babies advocate from the get go.
And last but not least.... the mental side of things. I don't know any pregnant woman who hasn't had fears of their ability. I have thought, 'OMG how am I going to do this, I can't........I don't have the strength to be a new mother again......I don't even know if this is really what I want.....'
This is normal. Talk about it. Get more aggressive help if you need, but don't bottle it in. You show more strength in admitting a weakness than pretending it isn't there.

I love all of you...

Re: A Thankyou to everyone....

You have been a huge help and inspiration to me. You will do just fine tonight. They say it's easier the 2nd time around, or at least that's what I'm hoping for. Thanks for the words of encouragement. Post when you can and let us know about your experience.

Re: A Thankyou to everyone....

First of all, I want to say congratulations because whether or not you go in tonight, you are close.

Second of all, I understand your situation because my mother works at a hospital and has been trying to get me in for weeks. I was supposed to have a sonogram done by her friends (since it would be for free) except there haven't been any open beds. This is a terrible time of the year because hospitals are extremely crowded. Some nights my mother walks back and forth in front of the E.R, wishing she could help. The last time I went to the hospital with her, they had people covered in blankets (as if they were dead) lying on the couches in the waiting room. It's sad.
