You know the drill-and yes, I am going to do this until his birthday. I like to remember. I like to re-read. I am hoping that by reliving it all, I will somehow be able to make peace with it when the the one year mark rolls around, take a deep breath, except my fate and be able to start slightly anew. Maybe even with a new baby on the horizon who I can share Evan’s story with.

December 9th, 2007 ( My due date according to doctors, not according to me and Fertility Friend)
So I FINALLY had a good nights sleep.
Still woke up every 2,5 hours as I do, and peed, but managed to get back to sleep quickly each time and so slept from midnight to 9am.
Best sleep I have had in a month. Woot.
Still no baby though. I did have so major major cervical cramping last night, its getting stronger, my midwife said what I am feeling is effacement as my cervix has been slowly effacing for 3 weeks now, and is a bit more open and effaced each time she sees me. It’s getting more intense, but just comes and goes in spurts..nothing seems to want to stick around.
Tuesday is my due date. I hope he knows that haha, come on baby, if you stick around in there much longer I will be beating them off with a stick as my OB really wants me to be induced if I go over, due to my BP and pain, and you know, on days like yesterday, its really not sounding like bad idea, this joint pain can be very overwhelming, making me think, just make it go away…Amazing how easy it is to change all your plans when you are overwhelmed with pain and lack of sleep.

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” — Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. I’m just curious, how did the doctors determine your due date? How did it end up being different than your calculation?

    • They calculated my due date based on the standard 28 day cycle that they use, based on LMP and ovulation happening somewere around day 14. I was charting when I got pregnant so was aware of my cycles I felt, I had always had 31 day cycles, and always ovulated on day 20-21, so I said they were off by 3 days. They let me be with that and changed my due date.
