Two days... One year ago, the most amazing woman took time out of her day to go with me (for the hundredth time) to my doctor’s appointment. You see, I had a rather difficult pregnancy; more on that later. We weren’t sure what to expect at this appointment as my due date wasn’t until May 29th.
After taking vitals and a Fetal Non-Stress Test, in walks Dr. B who informs us, in his very calming and sympathetic but no nonsense way, that I was done working, and I was to report to the hospital within the next 24-36 hours for an induction.
We left the office and sat outside making phone calls to everyone, waiting for the nurse to call me with my report time. The instruction was report to labor and delivery at 6:00 pm on Thursday, May 24th. The weirdest feeling came over me. I was simultaneously panicked and relieved at the same time. 🤷🏼♀️ Over the next few days and weeks my mother didn’t leave my side unless it was absolutely necessary. Her love, guidance, unwavering support, friendship and encouragement helped me through all of the fear, doubt, tears and happiness this journey of becoming a mother has presented. Not that I ever doubted her as she has always been that way my entire life. 💕
I am so thankful for her. Thankful for her advice and hugs. Thankful for her giving her time to watch my son one to two days a week. Thankful that she loves my son so much. Thankful that she loves me. 😘
There is absolutely no way I could do this without her. My only wish is to be half the mother to Chug that she was to me. 💙
