Confession: Preemie Clothes
“I have a catastrophic imagination.”
I was reading The Amazing Adventures of Kavaler and Clay and one of the characters said that. When I read that statement, it hit home because I too have a catastrophic imagination. I don’t know if it’s a survival skill or just may way of planning for the worse and hoping for the best.
In my planning for baby girls arrival, I had to adjust some of my original planning and thinking. I had hoped and planned for a full-term baby, but when we went to the doctor at 28 weeks and found that the cervical length was shortening, a sign of preterm labor, I had to come come to grips with the fact that once again we may have another preemie.
It’s been a process and after a good four weeks of bed rest, I feel like I’m ready to handle what ever is thrown my way. I feel like myself again. Game on.
One of the things that I have done to prepare for this possible early deliver is buy preemie clothes. now, if you’ve ever had a preemie or ever shopped for a preemie it is hard to find cute preemie clothes that won’t break the bank. So, I’ve created a list of my favorite places to go for preemie clothes.
CONFESSION: I hope to return all the preemie clothes. It’s part of my vision for baby girl. I have all the tags on and receipts. You see, if we can get another month of good baby cooking in, I’m sending it all back. And when I do, I’ll take a picture of it and post it. I’m a strong believer in visualization and dram/vision boards. There is something so powerful about putting your dreams, hopes and wishes out into the universe with clarity.
