Some distance...

I realized yesterday, that it has been nearly a month since my last post, and I don't know where the time has gone. Actually, that is not true, I do know. We are so focused on getting "Bump" here right now, that a lot of other things have been set aside, at least for now.

Kherrington's 13 months "dirth/birthday" slipped right past me. After her first birthday passed, I think her spirit/soul moved a little farther to allow room for her little sister to arrive. There isn't a day that goes by that we don't think about her, and she is the reason why we are so anxious for her little sister to get here. I guess, I didn't give her 13 month "dirth/birthday" much thought because in life, we don't mark birthdays by the month after the first birthday.

I have a feeling that my posts here might become even rarer over the next few months. I am finding, that as our rainbow baby's arrival draws near, I am finding it difficult to read baby-loss blogs. It makes me worry even more, to read about all the things that can go wrong during birth. Cord accidents, brain trauma, broken bones, meconium aspiration, or respiratory failure. To read about these things is just "too much" right now. I am filled with worry, and I am exhausted from it. I mentioned this to my Obstetrician yesterday and she said "you have pregnancy exhaustion right now... not physically, but mentally". I wish I could turn it off...but I have tried, and I can't. I know that after "bump" gets here, the worries will change. I am still reading MOST of your posts..but I will admit, that selfishly, I am finding it hard. I apologize to my followers, and BLMs for my absence right now, and I hope you can understand. Please know that I do think of you, your stories, and your lost little ones. Who knows, maybe after "bump" arrives, I will need to write more... only time will tell.
