I respectfully request that if you are a first time reader (or have been here less than 3 months) that you refrain from jumping to conclusions regarding me, my family, my pregnancy, and my birthing decisions.
I did not write this post as a platform for debate. Therefore, all comments have been removed (even mine) and the comment option for that particular post has been removed. I was overtaken by negative emotions after 2 comments were posted. Once Michele (nickname: sexylilmama) posted her asinine remark following my comment tirade I decided enough is enough.
I am 9 months pregnant. I will give birth to my newborn son, who is my fourth child, on Tuesday. This is a celebration time for me, my husband, our children, and our family — a miracle after a horrible loss a little over a year ago. A child I fought for and, no, you cannot begin to imagine what I mean by this. Even if you know my story.
Please don’t be tempted to spite me at a time when my emotions are raw, my hormones are raging, and my heart is on my very sleeve. The pregnancy I have experienced has been hard. My emotions have been all over the place. We have come up against a lot of things as a family for the past nine months. Some of those things I have posted about. Some of them I have kept to myself. If you haven’t been around for the journey you have missed out on a lot.
Please have compassion and leave us to our joyful celebration.
