I understand. My son will be 11 in May and everyone thinks I am nuts for wanting to try for another. But I have always wanted at least 2 children, just sometimes life gets in the way before that can happen.

Tami, Thanks it is nice to know others are going through similar situations. I am sorry you are bedrest. That is very difficult. I was on bed rest with DS for 3 weeks right before he was born, I couldn't imagine doing it for several months. Is your daughter due the day your mother passed away?

Thank you for noticing that... Not to meny people do... Yes it's an Amazing story... My due date is 3 jul... but because we are having a c-secction the dr said " we take the baby 1 week early" We said ok & sat out in the waiting room (cause we had to wait for the nurse to set up our next appt.) So we looked at the date & said " OH MY LAND " How can we pass this up!!!! What a gift to give to my mom... She passed of bone & liver cancer After surviving Breast cancer a yr 1/2 before that...

We feel in our hearts that Mom is the reason we found eachother again after 13 yrs.. I found him on myspace 9 nov 07 , She was sick at that point we planed a set 08 wedding but then the cancer spreed extremly quick & started to shut down her liver so with the help of family & friends we got the marrage licence & JP in 1 day , got married the next she passed 1 1/2 days later....

I miss her,, some days are better than other's and it getting harder with the due day coming for she won't be there Phisically for this birth,,, but i know she'll be in all of our hearts

Yes it's very hard to be off my feet/ EXPECALLY pelvic rest LOL but we do it for the baby right

I'm just glad i have all of you ladies here & on the jul due date boards & that i have my family ,,, I'm trully blessed !!

My daughter is a wonderful help... She has taken my roll for cleaning & such & has stepped up to bat that i don't know how i'm gonna repay her you know... I raised her these last 13 yrs by myself , with little to no help from family ( except my father ) & barly any child support.. She's on honor roll ... amazing

I truly wish you luck conceving ...it will be ok widly spaced children is not so much uncommon as you may think & sometimes i think it's better

Have a great day Thanks for listen to my story & seeing that

P.s we didn't plan this pregnacy nor the due date..this is what makes this story more amazing you know...

Hello.

I just had my son on April 13 and our dd, Serena, was born 12-9-01. so we have a 7 year gap as well. And we have had so many comments about being crazy for having another one so late. but we think its the best thing we could have done for US. I was on bedrest back in January/February for preterm labor and even the last week since his birth its been a blessing.

serena is such a help and gets herself ready in the am, helps with Xander, etc. i am not sure we would have done it any other way.

Tami, That truely is a great and heart pulling story. I really hope everyting goes well for you. I couldn't imagine losing a parent. I think having kids this far apart will be an adjustment but I think it will be ok. Thank you for the luck!
