TODAY MY DIVORCE WAS SIGNED!!!! The judge signed the papers early this morning, I called my lawyer yesterday to see if she had heard anything & I told her what had happened Friday & she said she was going over to the court to find out if it was signed & let them know my situation. I'm so excited, I feel like a TON of weight has been lifted off of me & I feel more at ease...I feel like I can accept Eden being born now & just be HAPPY about it. I cried hysterically from the news from how happy I am & I feel like that chapter of my life can FINALLY be closed, other than my 3yr old's DNA attaching me to this guy I have NOTHING else tying me to him & I'm so excited. My boyfriend was real happy too when I told him the news, you can hear the relief in his voice.
Yesterday was day 3 of NO BLEEDING!!! I'm hoping it can be day 4 today too but if they decide for her to be born now because it starts up again, I will be less stressed about it. We even talked about having a baby shower here, too. The nurses told me when I was first hospitalized that I can use the new conference room in front of my room if we wanted to, so I'm hoping Eden can last until March 4th because that's when we are thinking of having it since I turn 36 weeks on March 10th. I have never had a baby shower with my other two so I'm actually very excited about it but if it doesn't happen, I will be okay with it because nothing beats the fact of this divorce being final & being able to put my boyfriend's name on her Birth Certificate! Maybe now staying here won't be so tough now.
Yesterday I had gotten the funniest phone call though. My kids doctor is on the campus next to the hospital & they called me yesterday, when I saw their name on my phone I was extremely confused because I figured their appointments aren't until next month. So the lady told me that apparently I had a package there & she didn't know what to do about it. I told her I had no idea what she was talking about because I haven't ordered anything & I didn't understand why there was a package there for me. I told her I was actually hospitalized in the hospital next to their building, I told them the room number & floor & tried my best to say what section it was & she said she would give it to the mailing lady to try & bring to me. By the time I was off the phone with her I was laughing real hard because I just found it so amusing! Today I called to check if it was still there & she said the mail lady took it & it's somewhere in the hospital. I wanna go search for it but I can't move from this floor! I have NO idea who to call about that but I still find it hysterical that I have a package here & it landed in my kids doctor's office.
It sounds like it's been a good few days. I'm glad you're feeling more relaxed now that the divorce is final. I'm sure that stress wasn't helping your situation.
Stay strong. You're one more day closer to safety for your Eden and that means one less day in the NICU.
Hi there, I too live in Richmond, VA and just came across your posts. I'm a mom to boy/girl twins who I spent 11 weeks with on bedrest in the hospital. I know it's a scary time, but I'm so glad you had a good day today and that you feeling more at peace with everything going on. You got this mama! Sending you lots of continued positivity!!
Yay for no bleeding today!
Glad your divorce is final and that the weight of that stress has been lifted off your shoulders.
