Dear Crissy

Wordless Wednesday — Curl up & cry

rainy december

Isn’t it funny how a day that starts out bad, will almost always end up just getting worse, and worse?

My 37 week OB appointment was somewhat disappointing yesterday. The good news, is that the baby is measuring around 7 lbs. The bad news, my blood pressure is through the roof, and I need to do a 24-hour urine test. Also, cervix check reveals not a whole lot of progress — still no dilation.

I am tired and emotional.

Things just got worse later in the day, when once again, I was reminded how heinous other bloggers can be. Yes, I said other bloggers. I am finding more and more lately, that a thick skin is a necessity in this sphere.

    I just found your blog this week…….I’m sorry you had a rough day :( but you are so close to meeting your little girl! It’s hard at this stage in pregnancy, but try to keep it in perspective…’re almost done! ;)

    I get the other bloggers thing…I’m a special needs blogger and there is always that fine line. When it comes down to it, you have a list of devoted followers who believe in what you do and love you for it! All you can do is be open, honest, and yourself!

    Good luck with this final stretch, my last pregnancy was really hard on my body as well ((hugs))

      Thanks Lisa, I really appreciate the encouragement.

    I haven’t been on your site in awhile but I’m loving the new look! You are looking at things all wrong you are 37 weeks – only a few more to go! YAY! And who cares what other bloggers say – do your thing!

    Wishing you a wonderful delivery and happy holiday. Maybe our kids will be born on the same day, my son was born 12-27.

      Thank you, Stephanie. Also, that is very possible! My due date is 12-26. :)

    Hang in there sweetie won’t be long now and you’ll be holding that little bundle of joy. I’m sooo very sorry that someone annoyed you. It certainly doesn’t make it easy. try to put it behind you. Hugs

    So sorry about the OB appt. You are ALMOST there!

    And I know what you mean about the other bloggers. I like to think of it as NOT being “blog-eat-blog” out there and doing what I can, when I can, to help other bloggers. Don’t let them get to you. You absolutely ROCK! <3

    Crissy – I love your blog. You are someone I look up to as a blogger. I hope your day is awesome tomorrow. Don’t listen to those awful people, it usually is just bc they are upset with themselves.

    Also – you are almost there and little baby girl will be in your arms before you know it! HUGS!!

    I was just where you are – three months ago! Like pp have said, you’re so close to the finish line – and hey, 38 weeks is considered full term, so you could be delivering in a matter of days! ;-) I’m sorry to hear that the blogosphere is treating you poorly, but what does it matter? I’m totally new to your blog and am really enjoying it so far! So, if you’re doing your best “you”, then let the water roll off your back! :-) Hope you have a better day today!

    Why can’t bloggers play nice? Sorry you had a bad day… rest & take care of yourself and baby.


  9. JDaniel4's Mom — December 7, 2011 @ 6:52 am (#)

    Sounds like a really tough day! I hope today is a much better day!

    I hope your urine test comes out with better results and you are able to get that blood pressure under control. It will be over soon and you will have your baby!
    I like to take everything people say to/about me with a grain of salt – or just ignore it altogether. It makes life easier that way! LOL

    Hang in there! I’m 36 weeks and I’m just hoping for some progress at my next appointment. Even though I’m doubtful and know it can happen just like like that, I will probably still be sad and maybe cry is there isn’t any! This is my 3rd baby so and I don’t go early, so I should know better! I hope your beautiful baby girl comes soon and everything goes well with your tests!

    Try to cheer up. You’ve only a got few weeks left before that little bundle will be here!

    Know that those who are attacking you are doing it because something is lacking in their life. Keep doing what you’re doing – dont change!

    Awwww, Crissy. Sorry you’re having a rough time. If it helps at all, I think you ROCK…all the way around.

    P.S. I think people can be heinous in general. It’s not a pleasant realization. :( But you still ROCK!


  15. Kelsey Apley — December 7, 2011 @ 11:12 am (#)

    Hang in there! I am sorry your having a rough few days! I hope your blood pressure levels out good. I can only imagine!! Soon you will have your bundle of joy here and life will be grand!

    Yes I am a blogger too and other bloggers can be a pain that is for sure!!
