I'd done re-reading all the old post here. I'd like to think that the old post of the ladies here that shares their stories of what they had dealth, including health issues about their unborn baby at that time, that we will too will deliver a very normal and healthy baby even if we'd been through a lot of negative emotions.
Coral,I think naming him after your husband would not be bad, after all he's your baby and if it you think it feels right for you and give you comfort go on. Yes, I'd do too people hear that his presence at the day of delivery his presence would be around. It is really hard, everytime I see newborn babies smiling with the father beside them. It aches that my husband won't be seeing the smile of our baby. Last night I had this cramp/abdominal pain and being without him by myside makes me feel afraid on everything. It was like that I am looking for sign that his spirit is just with me, but no, it felt like the opposite that his no longer really with me. Denise, Congrats for the twins. Sarabear,I am terrified of giving birth to our baby. Yes, though we have a supportive system, it still felt like being alone. Just me and the baby. I hope I can get through the labor and the delivery.
How did you get through your labor? I mean, I know its not a breeze, I just keep hearing from others that I might feel his presence while I am. I look forward to holding my baby, knowing i'll be holding a piece of him. I feel its bitter sweet. How does it feel naming him after his dad? I am going to name my son after his dad, and have had some wierd comments from others about feeling uncomfortable caling him what they called him.
