ENJOY!!!!!! I was happy that Thomas and I were going to have another baby, or babies, like we wanted; but I was worried about what Dr. Bibbs said. Dr. Bibbsí words began to replay in my head; ďWomen who have carried babies at a late age are at risk of having miscarriages, or having a baby with Down syndrome, or any other chromosomal abnormalities.Ē I know she was only warning us about the outcome of my pregnancy, but I kind of wish she didnít.
Thomas: Letís not stress Whitney; Dr. Bibbs was only doing her job. I say we just relax about this whole situation and treat it as if itís a normal pregnancy.
I smiled at my husband; he always knew what to say.
And with that being said, my days were spent relaxing and reading up on new baby techniques.
Instead of us constantly going out to the movies when it was family night, Molly thought it was a great idea for us to pick out baby names. Also have Thomas and her to read up on baby techniques as well.
Molly: I like the name Jordan
Whitney: Nice, I like that one as wellÖ
Thomas: Jordan can be use for a boy or a girl; good choice Molly.
Whitney: What if I have twins or triplets like the doctor said.
Molly: Letís not giving them matching names. Letís give them unique and individual names, so they can be their own person.
Thomas: Yes, I love that Idea.
Whitney: Me too, but the names have to be universal, because we are not going to ask about the sex of the babies until they or it is here.
Molly: Well we have Jordan, now we need two more.
Thomas: How about Stony?
Whitney &Molly: STONY?!? (We all laughed and said our nays to the name)
I enjoyed that time with my family.
Then next day, I was home alone. Molly was at school, while Thomas was at work. I was bored and had nothing to do, but to sit around the house. I decided that I was going to take a nap in our bedroom. I walked inside the room and began to feel sad for no apparent reason. I guess it was because of the dark colors on the walls. I felt as if I was depressed. At that moment, I knew what I was going to do today.
Whitney: I am going to redecorate this room!
I began to get excited
Whitney: Maybe I can do it before Thomas & Molly gets home.
I ran to the dresser and put on some old clothes that I could paint in. I ran to Sunset Home Decorating store to buy the stuff I needed and went home to work. It took me 9 hours to finish my project.
Whitney: I think this is way better. (I said adjusting the last picture on the wall)
I stepped back and took a last look of my work. It was perfect! I was very proud of myself; I had redecorated our bedroom in 9 hours-With no help!!!
I loved it and I hope Molly and Thomas loved it too.
After decorating our bedroom, I began to get hungry, so I decided to head to the kitchen to start dinner.
I was walking pass Hollyís old room and a feeling came over me. I stopped at the door and just looked at it. I had not been in there since Hollyís death. I didnít want to go in there because I didnít want to reopen the wound of losing her. I knew that I had to go in there sooner or later because that room was going to be the new baby or babiesí room. I took a deep breath and slowly open the door and walked inside. Once inside, I began to look around. Nothing was out of place, everything like she left it. The only thing that was different was the dust that was collected around and on her things. I looked at her bed and thought about her not being able to sleep in it anymore. I began to tear up. Whitney: I canít take this right now. (I said turning around to walk out her room) After leaving Hollyís old room I began to feel sad once again. Maybe visiting her room was not good for me just yet. One day I will be comfortable to enter that room, but not today. Months had passed and I was excited about showing my big belly off. I was truly happy; I couldnít say the same for others. After telling Vera and Cheryl about the warnings of my pregnancy, they both became scared for me, especially Cheryl; I guess because Cheryl was now a doctor herself.
One day I went to visit her just to calm her nerves.
Cheryl: Whitney, I am the first one to say Iím happy for you but, Iíve seen these situations before and they never turn out good.
Whitney: Well Ce-Ce, I understand your concern, but donít you think itís too late to do anything about it.
Cheryl dropped her head and I did as well. Cheryl: Iím justÖ. Iím just worried Whit. I just donít want the worse to happen.
Whitney: Nothing will happen, I am healthy and so is the baby or babies.
Cheryl: Yeah, but what if the worse happens?
Whitney: Stop worrying Cheryl, me and the baby or babies will be fine.
Cheryl: LISTEN TO ME WHITNEY!!! I am a doctor, I know the chances of you and (or) or the babies surviving this. There is a slight chance, do you hear me, a slight chance. If the doctor asks Thomas to pick which life to choose which one should he pick?!? (In tears)
Whitney: Cheryl, I know things are going to be fine.
Cheryl: I just canít picture life without my best friend/ sister. (She said more calmly.)
Whitney: I know and you wonít have to picture it ever.
Cheryl began to cry, I walked up to her and hugged her Ė letting her know that my pregnancy is going to be fine and I was going to be okay.
The closer I got to my due date, people began to go crazy. Even though I calmed Cheryl down about my pregnancy, she still called and visited just to tell me how much she worried. I guess Cheryl had gotten in to Veraís ear, because she was blowing up my phone as well. I was getting tired of it, so I began to duck and dodge them and their phone calls. I guess Thomas was worried as well because one day out of the blue, he wanted to talk.
Thomas: Itís getting closer and closer to your due date and I have to be honest with you, Iím scared.
Whitney: Donít be sweetie; weíre going to be fine.
Thomas: Yeah, I know, itís justÖ. I talked to Cheryl and she told me something that might happen and wellÖ If it comes to choosing a life to save, then Iím letting you know Iím choosing yours.
Whitney: Iím really getting tired of people scaring me! I wish someone would be happy for me and the baby or babies Iím carrying.
Thomas: No my love, I am happy than anyone in the world because you are carrying my baby or babies once again. I just want to let you know that I am saving your life if it comes to it. I can live without another child, we can just adopt, but for me to live without you, I just canít do. (He began to tear up)
Whitney: I canít live without you either Thomas. Once again everything is going to be fine I promise. I said kissing my husband.
We kissed as if it was our last kiss.
Thomas: I have a surprise for youÖ (Breaking our kiss)
Thomas: Yes, follow me. (He said taking my hand and leading me to Hollyís door) I wanted to surprise you with thisÖ
He opens the door and I walk in.
Thomas: Itís nothing major; I just wanted to make room.
I was speechless. He had move Hollyís things out. I began to tear up
Thomas: Molly and I thought it was a good idea just to leave the room plain because we knew you would want to decorate it with blues and pinks for the sex of the baby or babies. (He said walking towards one of the cribs in the room while I looked around.)
Donít cry my love, we thought this would be a good idea, but I guess we were wrong. We didnít want you to deal with Hollyís death again. I walked up to him and kissed himÖ
Whitney: Thank you, everything is perfect.
After examining the baby or babiesí room, Thomas and I went to our own rooms to relax.
Whitney: Did I ever tell you that you are the best?
Thomas: Yeah, only once though. Maybe I should hear it again
Whitney: Youíre the best.
Later on that night, Molly and I were in the dining room looking at old pictures. It was good to see picture of my twins without crying. I was telling Molly about how she use to knock Holly down when they were learning to walk; before I could finish the story I was going into labor.
Molly: What should I do Mom? (She said screaming)
Whitney: Go get your father and then call the doctor and let them know we are on our way.
Molly did what she was told; when Thomas came into the room, he began to scream as well.
Thomas: I havenít done this in so long Whitney, what am I suppose to do?!?
Whitney: Molly!!!! Come in here and help me to the car, you father is acting as if he never did this before!!!
Molly came in the room.
Molly: Dad help mom outside while I go get the car. All you have to do is help her in the car, I will drive. (She said taking chargeÖ Thank God)
And with that being said we were off to deliver our new family member(s)
Hope you enjoyed the story.....
Please continue to come back and read more.....
Remember to C.A.R.H!!!
