12 weeks

Saturday, October 25, 2008

This post delayed for you due to the thoughtfulness of my husband and my being ridiculous, resulting in pouting. I'm over it, I swear, but just to clear the air, no one ever said you had to be mature to bring a child into the world right? That's what I thought.

K, so, Baby Bless is supposedly the size of a peach this week! A whopping 2.6 to 3.1 inches and weighs 0.5 to 0.7 ounces. That's progress people. One week and one day away from ending the dreaded 1st trimester! :) Three days from the follow up ultrasound!

Absolutely nothing new to report on the pregnancy front other than being serious that I'm only feeding my body a steady stream of stress and worry. Your words of outrage, encouragement and sympathy have meant so much to me though. I especially covet the prayers.

I don't know why I'm doing this to myself right now about Bridgit. My Mom is now trying to persuade me that I should wait if I feel this upset about it, but I know there will never be a right time. Ever.

A nestie friend/blog lurker paged me on my local to share some words of support and mentioned when in a similar situation that it "was like putting my sister to sleep." I know it is morbid and extreme, but that is the closest I can convey in words the hurt that is assaulting me.

And just because God has a sense of humor and I need to stop all of this crying, Callie just walked across my last and farted in my face. I tasted it before I heard it. That's nasty!

I know this sounds really strange, but beware of kitty poop-- it can be harmful for pg women! :)

Hope that you are starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel! Keep the weekly pictures coming, I like them.

You are so freaking cute Leah! Lots of prayers for you!

Abby said...

Leah! You are too stinking cute! My thoughts are prayers are with you! I can't imagine ever having to go through that! ((HUGS)) Know that Bridgit will feel safe in your arms, and know that you are doing the bst thing possible for her at that point. I know this may not be comforting, but it's all I can think of because I know how hard this has to be for you!

Can you get any more adorable? I think not.

I am so praying that you don't have to put Bridgit down and that she will pass peacefully at home. I haven't yet had a pet die and cry just at the thought. Those who've never had a pet can't understand the bond that you form with the little guys! Ugh - now I'm crying.

Rebecca said...

My heart goes out to you during this difficult time. My family has never had to face a decision like that with our pets. But I completely understand the bond that forms with your pets. We completely love our sheltie, who we got after our other sheltie was hit by a car.

You are such a cute preggers lady! Praying for you my dear in this difficult time. I know how hard it is! When our first dog died it was the first time I ever saw my dad cry!

Adorable little knocked-up lady =)
Still thinking of you and little B. Hang in there.

And OMG, LMAO @ Callie and her farts! You're amazing to still have a sense of humor given your circumstances.
