Well, we’re coming to the end of 28 weeks of pregnancy, an awesome milestone to be sure. It’s been a tough road with some ups, downs, hospitals, nerves, and laughs. It’s all par for the course, been there done that. Even given that, though, it does not get easier. Yes, I am very positive and always think things will turn out ok (unlike my terribly negative wife), but it’s still nerve racking from week 10 to 34. That’s the REAL issues. Sure, bedrest for 20 weeks stinks for Vera and for me (and the kids), but you learn to adjust, you learn to suck it up. Things could be worse, they could always be worse.
Vera is a real trooper and she sticks to the plan…no cheating, not much griping. It makes is all that much easier. I don’t mind doing all the housework, kids functions, shopping, etc. You get used to it. You can sleep when you’re dead. But, you are still always on edge. You’re hoping for good days and fearing that one day will be really bad. It’s out lot in life, but we’re been 2/2 so far and that’s a great track record. The results make it all worth while as I’ve said in the past…there’s nothing like having kids. It’s the best thing in the world and I’m so pleased to be doing it for a third time. Just hoping and praying that we get there un scathed one more time. Always be hopeful, and always be thankful because as bad as it seems, it can alway be worse. Here’s to another beautiful baby boy…couple months to go.
