My Hero

In the spirit of it being the Diva's Birthday Monday, I thought I'd tell a story about the Keeper. Calm down J, not all of it. Although it is really funny. Hehehe.

I found out I was pregnant with the Diva two weeks after her father and I decided we were definitely divorcing. We had tried so hard to get pregnant for during the years we were together but it was no reason to stay together either. I went about my life preparing to be a single mom, and he about his with his new girlfriend. He did attend appointments and such because he still wanted to be a part of her life. And he is a very big part to this day.
Anyway, I was freaking HUGE, and had one of the best friends:) She let me know just how huge I was, she says even my eyelashes were huge. She shopped with me, helped me put new accessories together, she did it all. She found out she was pregnant toward the end of my pregnancy, which made it that much more fun.



The time came Thursday night I started having contractions so I called upon the Keeper. She was getting ready to go to bed but came over immediately. She walked around out in the dark with me and we talked then decided it was time to go because I was having contractions about every five minutes. J drove us to the hospital, if you read her post you know how the women drives.
Anyway, once checked in they inform me no more food until delivery. What, WTF? Had I known this I would have waited until I seen the head. I love food!! Anyway, J is with me and enduring whatever with me, so I thought. I was trying to rest and all of the sudden I hear crunch, I whipped my head around and shot daggers. My mom had smuggled her in an apple. You Bitch!! Okay sorry, I know you're pregnant and you are here out of the goodness of your heart but for gosh sakes at least act like you need some air or have to pee. Little did I know we would be there forever before the Diva decided to grace us with her precense. At 3:15PM Friday, the Diva finally came. I sent out for food for myself and the Keeper immediatly!! We ate then and again at dinner time. She stayed with me that whole night too, in a recliner chair, and pregnant. She even wheeled my ass out to smoke. Oh, the nurses were not to happy with us. LOL.
J stood in, she was there throughout the whole delivery, comforting my whiny ass and helping me welcome the Diva into this world. So J, writing this today to say You are the wind beneath my wings, Love you!! Looking back at the whole episode, Thank you.

Bahahaha! I just read Keeper's comment! It must be wonderful to have such an awesome friend :)

You don't look all that big in the photo. Of course, my point of reference is the 75 pounds I gained when pregnant with Snow White!!! It wasn't pretty.

Wow! There aren't many friends like that in this life.

I remember my hubby coming back into the room where I had been in labor for the last 15 hours. When he leaned over to kiss me I smelled Fritos on his breath and wanted to kill him. I can't remember exactly what I said, but it had to have been ugly, lol.You didn't look so bad. I gained 65 pounds exactly, each pregnancy and was often referred to as a whale.

yet another reason I leave the pregnancy and child bearing stuff to others. Thank you BOTH for having kids so that I don't have to. :) Now, if you'll excuse me I'm going to go munch on some food while all those starving pregnant women work to fulfill my end of the baby quota. ha..ha.ha..
