I forgot!

I forgot Dylan's due date. I can't believe I forgot. It was October 18th, and I'm 10 days late. I know it's not that important, but it was important to me. No one else remembered, not even Derick.

Ah, well...it happens, I guess. I know that I don't love him any less because I forgot. I still think about him everyday. I'm just disappointed because I wanted to get to the cemetery.

Anyway...I needed to ask a few questions of you out there...

First, I want to start a blog or something for girls with an incompetent cervix. I've come across what seems like a lot of bloggers with IC lately. Maybe just a list of blogs that people can reference. I'm not sure, I haven't figured it out yet. But if there was one place that people could go specifically for info about their babies, cerclages, grief, or whatever...just one more place to comiserate with others. So if you suffer from IC, please leave a comment if you'd be interested. If you normally lurk, leave me a comment and I'll add you too...

Second, you all left me such beautiful comments when Lily was born. I am doing her scrapbook and was wondering if I could use your comments. I want to show her how kind you all are. How she was loved before she was even born, and how special she is. I'm sure she won't realize it until she's a mother, but I can hope. Anyway, I was wondering if that was ok with you. Let me know, and if for some reason it wasn't I won't add it to her book.

Third, my MIL acknowledged the other night how I was treated by Derick's aunt and ex-stepfather. She made a point to tell me that if she ever thought I wasn't taking care of Lily she wouldn't hesitate to say something. She then went on to say that she had nothing to say about the subject other than the fact that Lily is thriving and that proves our level of care. I'm pretty sure she'll say something to them. She isn't one to keep her mouth shut especially at the expense of us.

So nothing new to report here. Lily is sleeping through the night but has stopped taking naps during the day. Or, if she takes a nap it isn't until 7pm and then she doesn't go to sleep until 1 or 2 AM. Tonight, though, I woke her up and she went to bed at 11. Hopefully she sleeps good tonight. I go back to work in 2 weeks so we better get situated now!

Like you said, just because you forgot his due date, doesn't mean you love or care for him any less.

Yes, you can use my comment :-)

Yes, you can link to me in your new IC blog. And if I can help, let me know.

I'm glad your MIL stepped up and said what she did to you. I know it doesn't fix everything, but it's a start.

It's OK that you forgot. He knows how much you love him.

What a wonderful idea to put the comments into a scrapbook!

Feel free to add me to your IC blog. Not that I have a success story...yet. Hopefully soon. I'm dying to test out my TAC. I can't believe it has been almost a year since I had it placed.

Yay for your MIL. I'm glad she said something. It's about time.

Have a good day!

Use whatever you want.

I am glad your MIL said that to you. Even though you know you were doing a good job, it must make you feel better to have someone else agree!

Yes I forgot Adrian's conceptions date this eyar, oddly also October 18th. It happens. Luckily they are in heaven perfected and don't feel the petty jealousies we humans do. Our babies know how much we love them and how human we are.

Of course you can use any comment of mine you would like.

Hooray for your MIL. You are good parents and you should know it, but it means so much when someoen else acknowledges it, especially in the face of what yiou've been put through with the family.

Much love and God bless,

Carie

Yes, you can use my comments! I think it is a great idea to start a blog for women like us; love the idea actually. I remember when it happened to me I was looking all over the web for people who were in my situation; that is how we met!

Glad to hear that Lily is doing well!

Oh I'm so jealous that Lily is sleeping through the night LOL. That's wonderful. You can use whatever comments of mine that you want to.

And about forgetting Dylan's due date, I know it doesn't need said, but it's okay. Like you said, you love him and think about him every single day.
