I Feel So Lucky

I’m a member of an online ‘antenatal club’ for my boys, I joined the site it’s on while I was pregnant with Zack and with no other friends in a remotely similar situation (I was a student, and all my friends spent their time studying or in the pub) it was a godsend to have people going through the same thing, people who I could whinge about the morning sickness/spd/constant loo trips to and they were going through the same.

This group of girls as some of the most helpful girls I’ve ever met. So when I fell pregnant with Max I wanted to have people to share the pregnancy ups and downs with, I joined the club for women due the same month as me.

We recently heard from one of the ladies from Max’s club who’d given birth to her little girl a couple of weeks early, she was quite small for her dates and was a bit poorly, but that was all I was aware of being so caught up in my pregnancy and then the arrival when it finally happened.

Her beautiful lil girl has been diagnosed with Prada-Willi Syndrome. I’ve just googled it, and I just don’t know what to say to her. I feel so sad for her and her family; I can only imagine what she’s going through right now (

We take so much for granted, don’t we? It’s made me realize how lucky I am to have two perfect boys with no problems. I was so annoyed again last night when we had yet another horrible night with Max just being fussy and unsettled –

Now I realize I should cherish every moment, no matter how grumpy and irritable it makes me, I’m thankful that my lil boy is safe and sound and I’ll keep him that way for as long as is humanly possible.
