Baby Week...

So is anyone else obsessed with babies? I have been all of my life and am also a nurse and knew that's what I wanted to do ever since I was just little. Well because of these 2 things I love watching discovery health and especially anything baby. Just a week after I had Alexis I couldn't help myself from watching everything baby just as before. Although I was so disgusted at everyone's innocence (which I am just so jealous of if I had to admit it. I would just cry everytime a screaming baby was laid on a mother's chest and just long for when I am able to experience that wonderful moment in my life. Anyways to the point I in no means would wish anything but a happy and healthy 9 months on anyone let alone a stillbirth, but I just could not shake the fact that none of these shows show anything but perfectness only adding to everones innocence. Well all until Baby Week. I have watched it some and am amazed that 2 very strong women chose to show their stillbirths on tv. I just wanted to thank these women for being so strong and sharing their babies short lifes with all the world. Like I said I would never wish it on anyone but want any "innocent" pregnant woman to know that she needs to cherish every single second that her baby is alive and well in her belly.
Sorry to ramble but I couldn't help but get this off my chest especially after hearing people talk at work today about how awful it is to be pregnant!

I havent had the chance to watch any TV this week. But I am very amazed to read about these strong and brave women who opted to show the world that there are women who dont go home with thier babies.


I am baby obsessed too. I just walked around Babys R Us and my middle 2 kids were complaining that we didnt have a baby why were we there. And my oldest son pipped up and told them to leave me alone, that if I wanted to look at the baby stuff that was my right.


I was proud of him for understanding my need to be there and touch the baby stuff.
