M feels good about it

I work with a woman, and we'll call her M for anonymity.  My last 3 pregnancies, M has "known".  She's just like that...she can sense it.  Erin and I always kid around and say it's her creepy voo-doo that makes her know, but I don't know how she does it, but she always just knows.

Yesterday, I went to tell her about us expecting again, and before I even said anything, she just said "I already know...but I haven't said anything.".  Now, I told a person who works next to her the day before, and I asked her if C had told her, and she said "Yes, but I've known for a lot longer than that".  When I asked her how long she's felt it, she said she's known for about a month...which ironically is about how long Adam and I have known.

M and I continued talking and she told me that she felt last time that I wasn't going to get to keep Bailey.  She said she just felt it.  But, she said that she feels good about this one and she feels like it's all going to work out good for us this time.  I don't remember her telling me that last time.

So, as odd as it is, I felt a little comforted to know that M feels like this one is good.  And God only knows how much I hope and pray she is right.

So, it's going on the books today, that M feels like this one is the one...and little CB, I do hope you are the one we get to keep, because I'm already head over heels in love with you.

Question to my readers:  Have you ever had anyone tell you something "odd" like this before and do you remember how it turned out?

I love things like this. I love when people get a feeling and tell you it will be alright. I don't have any personal experience with it, but it sure makes me feel better. When she knew that you were pregnant for a month, and she has this feeling....it just makes me believe it more.

I am so happy that you are finding comfort in the wonderful woman. It's so nice to feel the rightness in it.
I remember my grandma knowing we were going to have twins before we even got pregnant. She talked about it all the time. She just knew it was going to be twins. Even when they only saw one at the ER, she told me the other one was hiding....at 8 weeks.
She has now told me over and over again that I will get another baby. She won't say how, but she says it will happen. And I trust her in that, I really do.

Wow! How neat! <3 I really really hope M is right! <3 I am glad that her positivity is so comforting. I remember my mom feeling very nervous and scared about the migraines I was having about a month before Drew died. My doctor said it was normal, but my mom had a bad feeling about them. We still wonder if they might have been related to my disorders. :(

Sometimes people would say stuff to me like, "Oh, I'm sure everything will be just fine." And I hated that! I mean, how did they know??

That being said - there IS something different when you are told things like M told you. Maybe it's the kind of people they are - or maybe it's the way they tell you - but their messages really stick with you.

Hold onto that kind of hope and good feeling - cause heaven knows we worry about everything!

Carly over at To Write Their Names in the Sand took a picture of a heart on a beach for my third baby. One of the first things I noticed in the picture was that the setting sun created a ray of light going up towards the sky, and two rays of light coming down towards the earth.

I don't know where the thought came from, but I saw that picture and I instantly said to myself, "I sent a baby back to heaven (the ray of light towards the sky), but maybe I will get 2 babies to stay with my here on earth.

I have never, ever told anyone about that before. But now that I have my son here with me - I can't help but wonder if it will all come true. Will my son have a sibling here on earth with us someday?

We'll see. But I like to hope and believe it will all come to pass!

Speaking of twins...

(first, I'm also a BLM. Lost my son Andrew on 12/5/10 born still at full term.)

My mom was walking her dogs one day and a woman and her husband she ran into during her walk stopped to chat. They were strangers and only in town visiting a family member down the street. The woman asked if she (my mom) had a daughter. She went on to tell my mom that I would become pregnant this year (again, but not a surprise) and I'd become pregnant with twins, a boy and girl.

Needless to say, I'm not pregnant yet but we've only been trying for a month (still hard, though!). If anything, it's hopeful and sounded wonderful hearing I could have twins!

(none of this I've blogged about...yet. If it happens, I'll come out of the closet on my own blog).
