hi all – thank you for all the comments and emails! I cannot tell you how much we appreciate all your thoughts and prayers!
I haven’t gotten to one day at a time. I’ve figured out I’m still on “one moment at a time”.
Last night I went to a networking event for work. I do marketing. So, I went to a wine & cheese where there were a bunch of marketers gathering to do what marketers do, talk. Some I had not seen in quite some time. Some know I am expecting and some did not know until they saw me. You can’t imagine those first few questions and my thoughts of “how do I answer that?”..”what do I say?” Well, I played as though things were peachy. I just couldn’t think of another way in that very moment. I was there for work and I couldn’t lose it and I didn’t want people throwing me a pitty party. This is a great pregnancy and I have a great baby in my belly. I’ve had a healthy and pleasant pregnancy thus far. True, two weeks ago our world was turned upside down. That does not change the fact how super duper happy I am to be pregnant with baby Cohen! So, I let the non-stop talkers talk and ask non-stop questions and just took a bunch of deep breaths.
Once I left, I may have asked myself if I was doing the right thing by not telling them our situation. I thought it was the right thing for the time.
You all can read the comments. If it were okay etiquette, I would probably post all the emails. I’ve been sent so many stories. I have hope. There have been babies and situations that ended up being MUCH better than doctors expected. There have been cases where things have turned out worse. But the women that email, WOW! I know their emails are after the fact, but they simply want me to keep my faith and know God is in control.
For you formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb. I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; wonderful are Your works, and my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth; Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; and in Your book were all written the days that were ordained for me, when as yet there was not one of them. How precious are Your thoughts on me, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand. ~Psalm 139:13-18
