I Want My Mommy!

I called my mom last night. We talked about this and that. We talked about my impending adoption. The more we talked, the more emotional I became.

Our baby's due date is right around the corner. Our birth mom lives in a different state and due to all the legal hoops we need to jump through after the birth, we will need to be there for about 4-5 weeks. Due to hubby's work schedule, there is also a strong chance that I may have to be there for a few weeks by myself. with a new baby. by. my. self.

As I was telling my mom all of this, I realized how terrified I am. I also realized how much I need my mom during this time in my life.

I just wish she didn't live so far away.

Perfectly understandable reaction for an expectant Mom...I am so thrilled for you both. There's no one like your Mom when you have a new baby...your long wait and prayers have been answered...you'll do great !

If it comes to this, let me know! We may be able to work something out so that the kids and I can come out to help.

Tammy, this is perfectly normal. Every new mom feels overwhelmed at the prospect of caring for such a fragile new baby, but believe me you are more than capable. All a baby needs are milk, diapers and love. Although having your mom there at such a special time is wonderful too, I wish she could be there too.

I wanted to talk to you on Sunday! If you are wondering how big your baby is... you can look at my belly. I think I am due just after your baby is due. (Sept. 26th). Just so you know ;)

I have those freak out moments just thinking of trying to get pregnant. I imagine your mind is so busy right now! You'll do great! I know you will!
