Keeping My Fingers, Eyes, Legs and Toes Crossed

Sunday, October 04, 2009

I was talking with my youngest daughterinlaw last evening. She just informed me that I am going to be a grandma yet again. Well that is great news, yet I am a bit worried.Her and my youngest son have given me a beautiful little granddaughter who is now two years old. Since she was born, my daughterinlaw has been pregnant twice. The first time, she had a miscarriage after about 8 weeks into the pregnancy. She was devastated of course as all young wanna be moms are. The second was worse. She was told that everything was fine, the baby's heart was beating well and everything. Three months into the pregnancy they did an ultrasound on her. She had to have an emergency abortion. All the baby's organs were growing on the outside of its body. I cried. I cried for myself. I cried for my son and daughterinlaw and what they had to go through. I cried for the unborn child that would never stand a chance. She didn't want to have an abortion, but was told that the baby would most likely die by the time she was 7 months pregnant and that would be even harder on her. She was also told at that time that she could get pregnant again and it would not happen to her. So now we sit on pins and needles and wait. So far, the ultrasounds have come back good and everything is on track. I have everything crossed on my body that I can possibly cross for her to have a healthy normal baby. Because my daughterinlaw is diabetic, they watch her closely. I will worry now until the baby is born.

    Crossing my fingers, legs, arms, toes, eyes....everything - along with you that everything will work out perfectly this time. I know the pain of a miscarriage/lost baby and hopefully this will be true to the old adage ...third time is the charm!
