An Emotional Pregnancy

All of this talk about Anencephaly is starting to really get to me. I am trying to come to terms with the fact that my child will not make it past a few hours after birth. I am headed toward my 16th week of pregnancy and I am still freaking out all the time. I do feel the baby move a ton too. I go back to my OB tomorrow and I plan to ask her several things about this birth. I cry often and it really has hit me that I will not be able to do things that other people do to prepare for their newborn. 
My husband and I will enjoy this pregnancy to the fullest and we will enjoy every milestone that comes with it, BUT it is hard not being able to shop for my baby like other women do. My husband and I have bought a few things but we really can't buy much because we just do not know. =[ It is really one of those see what happens when the time comes things. Until next time-

  1. I understand. I find myself staying away from baby areas of stores. I had a hard time at a recent baby shower and had my sister not appointed me to take pictures, I don't know how I would have handled it emotionally. Taking pictures kept my mind busy enough to make it through.

    Not being able to do something to help you, Jon and the baby is the most helpless feeling there is.

    Love you.
