Just for fun and for a change of pace.......did any of you have an interesting and funny mother's day experience?
I know I did when my 10 year old came home from church.  She was with her grandparents and they came in to say that she had really "spoken out" in church.  Apparenty the preacher asked what she was thankful for about her mother and her response was....."I'm thankful that she tries to cook".  The whole church broke up with laughter thinking that she was talking about my culinary skills being exceptionally poor.  smhair
She, bless her heart, was saying that she was thankful that I would try to cook when I hurt so bad and was insulted that they would laugh.  I honestly had to laugh too and then explain it to her.  It really was funny and it made me love her even more.
Anyone else have a "funny" from today?

Thanks for the kind words friends. She is a blessing and I have just sent her off to school for the day with huggs and laughter. I am truly blessed to be her mother.

I'm not sure if I mentioned it before or not, but I lost several children before she was born. It was from a condition known as Uterine Artery Resistance, which limited blood flow. No blood, no oxygen, no I am especially grateful for my miracle child. She was even featured in Women's World Magazine in an issue several years ago. They did a full page (almost two) on her birth. We were even called by the National Enquirer (I swear), but both my family and the Neonatal Pathologist (in New York), along with my reproductive endocrinologist (WONDERFUL MAN) here (Southern States) decided that would be a mistake and we refused to allow them to do the story.

For years, I couldn't understand why my babies died and those who didn't even want them could have them by the dozens and then I finally understood. My condition would have caused my babies to all suffer serious cognitive problems as well as some physical/psychological problems unless interventions were done. I did not know best what should happen. All the children in the family (it follows genetic lines many times) who were born before my daughter have serious cognitive/psychological/physical problems. All of those born after are in the gifted programs at school (as is my child). There is so much hope for this type of thing and so many who don't understand and won't listen. The regimine during pregnancy is very difficult to follow, but it is so worth the reward. By the way, this was also the cause of difficulty conceiving and of the losses for my sisters and my female cousins. I now know many, many women who have wonderful children because of the experiences I went through and getting the word out on this condition. They all had to go see my wonderful RE, but every last one has at least one wonderful child now. One even has triplets a little over a year old.

I'm rambling and I will stop now, but I will gladly answer all that I know if any of you needs info on this issue. I can only speak as a participant and not a physician and I'm sure many things have changed in the last 10 years, but my sister-in-law will soon deliver her third child, after loosing both tubes and so many babies. It took her a long time to even hope, but she has some wonderful, bright daughters now and a son soon to follow (in June).

All the best to you!
