Psalms 139:13-16

Psalms 139:13-16: For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

This all pretty much sucks. I just want my baby to be home. I just want things to go "normally" for me for a change. Why does everything have to be so messed up for me? I really feel like a failure. First I couldnt concieve a baby easily. Then I couldnt even carry him to term...I've failed him. Its my fault that he is in the NICU, I failed him. Just like in everything else, I cant seem to do anything right.

I've ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS wanted to be a mommy, nothing else really. Then everything goes wrong. I guess technically I am a mommy, but I dont feel that way very much. I dont feel any different than when I visit a friend with their baby. I ooh and ahh over how cute he is. I call and check in on him from time to time. I hold him with permission and supervision then put him back then I go home. Then I feel guilty for feeling this way.

When he comes home...will he know I am his mom? Or will he be sad because his nurses arent there?

Am I depressed?...probably. Today is not a good day for me.

BTW...Isaac is doing okay today. He had to get his nasal cannulas back. He keeps forgetting to breathe. He now weighs 3lb 5oz.

ETA...hope ya'll dont mind the whiney blogs. I just need to talk about some things but if I talk about them out loud I cry and I have been trying to keep anyone from seeing me cry.... I just smile and tell everyone I'm fine

Isaac is doing GREAT! He is getting milk now, a little more everyday. He is off the ventilator and they are starting to wean him off his nasal cannulas. His heart PDA is fixed (via a little surgery). His brain bleeding is getting better. He's my little miracle man and God working great things through this wee little man already.

And for your viewing pleasure...the little iMan.

Yummy Fingers!

Life's Best Moment

One of the best moments of my life....

Monday, August 4, 2008

Things never go how you imagine. You have a dream and an image of how life should be and then it doesn't go that way...

I never thought I'd struggle to get pregnant.
I never thought I'd deliver my baby just one week into the third trimester.
I never imagined that I wouldn't hold my baby as soon as he was born.
I never thought I'd learn how to breastfeed in a hotel room with a pump and nothing but a picture of my baby.
I never thought I'd be at work a week after he was born while he is two hours away being taken care of by strangers who know my baby better than I do.
I never thought my heart would stop every time my phone rings "in case its something bad."
Its not supposed to go this way.
This isn't how its supposed to be.
Its just plain not fair.
It really sucks.
