Today is almost done, and I have mourned my baby very little. I did my mourning at other times. Today I celebrated the children I have with me, and the man I love. I needed to celebrate today. Enough said.

Today was supposed to be my due date. Surprisingly, it really wasn't bad at all. I remembered it this morning, because when I first found out I was pregnant, Carrie commented that my due date was the same day as a wedding her kids were going to be in. So, since the wedding was today, that reminded me that today was my due date. I really didn't feel like I should have been having a baby today though. I already went through that, several weeks ago, and today just felt like.... well, it just felt like today. Just like any other day. I commented to Andy about it being my due date this morning. I think I was starting to feel a little mopey. He was not sympathetic at all, which was the absolute best thing for me. It was much easier to be a little grumpy with him for a few minutes, then to be mopey all day. So, even though he slightly annoyed me, I am really grateful to him for being "uncaring" about it. The thought stuck around all day, and struck at random moments, but it wasn't a heavy thought, and it didn't weigh me down. God is so faithful.
