I had a small baby shower for Cora on Saturday, April 29th (37w6d). She died the night of April 30th (38 weeks).
For Erin and Patrick I was thrown baby showers, but they both were after they were born. I insisted, because I was just more comfortable with that.
Well, we recently moved and the ladies at my new church are throwing me a baby shower as an excuse to "get to know me." It's really sweet. It's before the baby is born, and I totally didn't think about asking them to throw it after. I took it as emotional progress on my part.
And then I realized, it's tomorrow. Tomorrow I'll be 37w6d.
Oh wow, Brittanie. I can see how hard that will be for you. I am sure Skittles will be fine, but I understand how difficult it is to believe that. I guess it is a little late to ask them to postpone it?
Big Hugs! Deep Breath! Can you go in to your doc after the shower to see the baby? Or at least hear a good strong heartbeat? I know how scarey that must be. It is so sad that we can't just enjoy sweet gestures like a baby shower.
Well, the shower went really well this morning. I had an appointment completely with NST and BPP yesterday, so I knew she was doing really well and that helped. My next "milestone" is tomorrow night. That will be the gestational point Cora died. So...as long as I wake up to movement Saturday I think I'll be okay.
