Thank you mother nature

Thank you for alleviating my fears whenever I feel nervous about this pregnancy.

Every time I have doubts, you give me something to make me feel that everything must be okay. Today i woke up feeling that something was terribly wrong. I felt really good.

Then an hour later I started feeling really queasy and it progressed to me dry retching, and trying really hard not to throw up. I ate something and the feeling subsided a little. But it is still there in the background, waiting for a chance to resurface.

Then the lady from make-a-wish foundation called. As she was telling me about how the number of wishes in the last year have increased, and how only a small percentage of children asking for wishes actually survive, I started sobbing, then crying, and eventually I had to just apologise and hang up. I couldn't stop crying.

I felt guilty that I couldn't do something to help these children get their wishes. The mere thought of it has me crying again. Perhaps when I can think clearly I will send them a donation.

But I love the tears. I love the morning sickness. I love that I get some feeling that baby bugs is okay.

God I hope the signs are right. I hope baby bugs is doing okay. I hope he/she is growing. I hope even now he/she is discovering they can squirm about. I hope he/she is getting all the nutrients they need from my body. I hope that little heart is still beating.

Please let me keep this baby.
Please let everything be okay.

Oh Bugs, congratulations honey. It all sounds completely normal on track at this stage. I hope like hell for you that this works.
