I'm pretty sure any other human being would be in the hospital with extreme distress with what Lyn is enduring. Yet, she keeps doing everything that she possibly can for her family without putting any risk to the baby. Nova is absolutely fine and ready to come but for some reason, she simply isn't coming. To say Lyn is a trooper is an understatement. This is just additional proof to just how strong she really is and why I chose her as a life partner. <3
I realize that Nova's time of birth will come soon enough. Legally, May 31st will be the first day that the doctor can induce birth. But this will be a tormenting final week. If I feel this worn out after the past couple of months running around trying to do the jobs of two people, I can't begin to imagine how she feels.
I just want people to give her a break because having a baby is extremely hard work and this is probably one of the most painful pregnancies ever. People really don't seem to understand and keep insisting that we just go to the hospital. But because of stupid hospital policies, going now will only get us sent back home, since it's not a "medical emergency." We're not going until it's obvious that Nova is coming or on the 31st. That's all there is to it. It's not our choice. Besides, the hospital would be a lot more uncomfortable, for Lyn, baby, and I alike.
It could still be today. Or tomorrow. But at least there is an absolute end to this. Lyn can't take this anymore. So please be extra nice as possible to Lyn and I while we navigate this final week of her carrying this miracle baby. We don’t need any more stress than we already have. Nova will well be worth the effort.
