Being Proactive

There is one thing that I can tell all pregnant women.  If you take nothing else from this blog, please, please, heed this advice.  If you feel like something is wrong, don't call your doctor or a friend or anyone else...don't tell yourself you are being stupid...GO IN!  I have seen too many babies die because doctors were so unconcerned with lack of movement or contractions that weren't regular or pains that weren't contractions.  DOCTORS DON'T KNOW EVERYTHING!!!  In fact, they get desensitized to all the pregnancy complaints because they see the "status quo" first time mom that doesn't know what to expect, everyday.  Remember that this is YOUR baby!!  Don't worry if the doctors think you are being paranoid or whatever...go with your gut!  YOU know your body better than ANYONE else.  If it turns out nothing is wrong, GREAT!!!  If it turns out there is, then you can know you did EVERYTHING in your power to help your baby!  Remember that you have to be the one to protect that baby in your ever expanding belly.  No one else is going to do it for you.  Most people will just say oh, do kick counts or the baby is probably sleeping or you're just being a worry wart.  OH WELL!!  In my opinion, this makes you the best mother EVER!!  The fact that you are in tune enough with your body and baby to know when something has changed shows that you are MORE THAN prepared to be a mom...and you're gonna be a GREAT one!  Going in and not waiting could be the difference in you taking your baby home or you going home without your precious little one.  That's not something I want anyone to go through.  There is no pain like losing a child!  Be PROACTIVE, ladies....trust your feelings!  BABY DUST and healthy wishes to all you mommies-to-be out there!
