Hi ladies-

I am beyond stressed!!!! My induction date is 13 days away and everyday that gets closer I become more of a basket case. I am putting on a brave face for everyone and I am SOOO excited but geez I am a mess!!! I honestly want Tessa to move 24/7 and obviously she doesn't. I just need to get through these next 13 days without losing my mind!

I have a lot of appointments these next 2 weeks.... This week I have NST Mon and Thurs and an OB appt on Tuesday. Next week I have NST Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and an OB on Tuesday with the induction on Saturday.

Please pray that I can keep my head on straight these next 2 weeks and not become a complete crazy person!

AND to top it all off I keep getting these Happy 1st Birthday cards in the mail from random places (Babies R Us, Random Catalogs) that I must have signed up for mailing lists with Alyssa. I miss her so much. She should be here. I know she is watching out for Tessa and I though. Tessa is a gift from Alyssa, I truly believe that.

Okay - Thanks for letting me vent. You are all such amazing strong women and I am so honored to "know" you all. :-)

awww Jen. It's going to seem so slow these next 2 weeks (for you) but really it will go by really fast and before you know it, Tessa will be home with you and then you'll be wondering why the time is going so fast and how she's growing up so fast and where the time has gone. (Funny how the pregnancy part goes SO slow, but once baby arrives, the time will go by SO fast).

You'll be in my thoughts these next 13 or so days.

Oh and I totally agree with you. I TRULY, TRULY believe our Sweet Pea is a gift from our Sweet Little Angel Katrina.

to you.

Jen, you are in my thoughts and prayers that the next (now 12!!) days go by for you as quickly and as stress-free as possible. I am right there with you on the "I want her to move 24/7" ... and yes, I lose a LOT of sleep at night when I wake up in the middle of the night and poke and prod until I feel her kick / shift / flutter / etc.

Wreaks havoc with my blood sugar, but that's a different soap opera ... *sigh*

It's funny how we think that our Angels are gifting us with our rainbow babies; I said the same thing to anyone who would listen, that Noah REALLY had a hand in sending us Pippi ... and yes, I believe that to be entirely true

P.S. Can't wait to meet Tessa!!! I look forward to being a cyber-auntie!

Thank you to Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggie!

I'm Barb, Mom to Angel on Earth Julia Rose (7*22*08), her twin brother Angel in Heaven Noah (7*22*08), and rainbow baby Sydney Noelle (12*4*09).

*a special 'thank you' to all the blinkie creators for their talents*

I'm hoping that these next 12 days go quickly and you can keep occupied and not go crazy. I'm sure that's way easier said than done. I can't wait to see Tessa.

I'll be thinking of you for the next 12 days, and I hope that the next 12 or so days Tessa will be moving/kicking/shifting, etc as much as possible so you'll be able to get some needed worry-free rest.

Just think, you've gotten through 8 months of waiting...if you keep yourself busy enough the days will go by and 12 days from now you WILL be holding your beautiful little Tessa (and I for one cannot wait to see pictures!) You can do it! Just a little bit longer!
