The counting never ceases to amaze me how it seems to continue even though you think you have gotten passed that in your life you never really truly do. Tonight I am counting again. Two years ago I would be sitting in bed tonight telling John I was crazy but I felt something was wrong. But all the signs where there that she was okay and healthy. She even had the hiccups that night but I told John I thought they felt different. She was moving so not much to alarm there. I kept checking her heart tones that evening with the doppler because I just felt like something was wrong. Her heartbeat was fine and a beautiful sound to hear. I kept reassuring myself that I had way to much time on my hands and that strict bedrest had finally caused me to lose my mind. I went to sleep that night saying in my head if I still feel this way tomorrow morning I will just go in to be safe. That morning I awoke to a still baby..there was no breakfast demands like usual. She was silently sleeping, she was gone. She silently slipped away in the night right inside of me and I didn't even know it happened. What time was it? What happened? What did she think and did she know how much I loved her and how much I needed her? All I was left with was emptiness and questions and pain. I miss her spirited little self I love her so dearly. How much time has changed but some feelings never seem to. I remember myself this night last year. I was in bed in the dark and didn't want to be near anyone in this world. I missed her my heart ached with all it's might and there was nothing I could do to ease the pain. I felt even more empty and that the universe had to have hated me as I had started my period again...another sign that I was even more empty and there was no baby growing inside me and I was wondering if I would ever have the chance to love again to be a new mother again and to give my family another member to love. I was at such a low point. If I only had known there was light around the bend and that about 21 more days from that point I would get the surprise of my rainbow on the horizon. A new journey beginning a gift from her sister. Yes Kinley Raye has brought light thru the darkness and my arms are holding tight to her tonight but yes I still ache for my sweet first born daughter to be in my arms again. Forever missing you my love.
