Deep breaths…. October 8, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — haveuseenmysanity @ 9:15pm10

I’m pregnant!


I’m really pregnant!

And. I. Am.Really.Freaking.Out.

I’m excited….please don’t get me wrong. But I’m scared. After losing Ethan I am terrifed. What if something goes wrong again? What if I never get to bring this baby home with me? What if I never get to hear his/her cry? Or smell that sweet baby smell?

What will I tell this baby about his/her older brother who left us over a year ago? How will I ever tell him/her about the brother they will never meet…never play with….never fight with?

I feel guilty. To be moving on…forward. No one can ever or will ever replace Ethan.  So why do I feel so damn guilty right now? I’m afraid to be too happy about this new baby. I’m afraid to dream about the day he/she is born…to dream about first steps….first soccer games…first everythings. How awful is that? To be so afraid that if God sees me happy…he will  take this baby away too.

So, for now? All I can do is take deep breaths…….

    How awesome! I am so excited for you! I understand you, too. I just hope you can relax and enjoy it for what it is, not who it is not; but still feel like you honor Ethan. Such a tough thing but I am very happy for you and wish you happy thoughts and great health and wonderful things…

    What Chris said! Congratulations! I can only try to imagine the roller coaster of emotions you are feeling and will with the rest of this pregnancy. I’m very happy for you. No one could ever replace Ethan, but I’m sure he would be honored that you are moving forward and sharing the love you have for him with his little brother/sister.
