Countdown

I am on a countdown to so many things at the moment I hardly know where to start.

Counting down to Kerem arriving on Tuesday morning.....
Counting down to my due date on Wednesday.....
Counting down to my induction date a week on Wednesday....
Counting down til I get back to my own house in Turkey....

The best and worst of all though, is counting down to the birth of my daughter and not knowing what will happen next. Wishing for so much and fearful of even more.

I have been keeping myself very busy over the last few months, but it is harder to distract myself just now. I have been a little down, and I really dont like it! I'm not prone to wallowing in self pity or the blues so I have decided enough is enough!

I am going to go baby shopping today and buy a couple of things for the baby. Everything that I have for her at the moment has come from friends and family. I think that there should be at least one thing from her mother, should she survive it will be the first thing that she wears!

Hi Caroline, a difficult time ahead for you both but hopefully hubby arriving, you'll be supportive of each other and keep each other strong. Very understandable you feeling low at the mo, I think your right to go shopping for your baby girl, I would find that a comfort and hope you do too,thinking of you and take care. Carolxx

you are in my thoughts. I think your idea is perfect. Every daughter should have something special from her mother no matter what the outcome.

Hi Caroline, got to agree with everyone else and that shopping trip sounds like a sound idea to me. Kerem will be with you by now and that will cheer you up too. You have my good wishes and, like Debz, I've got everything crossed.
