"Girl!" She said finishing her sentence and we smiled, on
the way home I was looking back and smiling at Kelsey "You're
going to have a baby sister!" I said and she giggled at me when
we got home Bella was there "A girl!" I said and Bella smiled
"Starry!" She said and Austin spun her around for me, I'm going
to be due on September 30th, so the end of Septemeber. That night
we told everybody the news and we had a blast celebrating it. We
got up at six and got Kelsey dressed in a cute dress and then
Austin was wearing a good outfit and I was dressed in the best
oufit I had, Allie is getting married on August 1st so I will be
huge by then but I love that my best friend is geting married! We
went to her school and afterwards we went to Denny's to
celebrate, Stacy was spending the night and we were leaving
bright and early the next morning.
We were all up at two and the girls slept the way to
Orlando "They're excited." He said "Beyond." I said and Austin
smiled at me "My mom is throwing you a baby shower." Austin said
"Alright." I said and Austin smiled at me and then he focused on
the road and then we arrived "Time to get up girls! We're here!"
I said and they smiled at me waking up. We spent the weekend at
Disney World, I took a ton of pictures while Austin went on all
the rides with the girls since I couldn't ride any rides. "It's
time to say good-bye." We said and the girls waved good-bye to
Disney World as we got on the high way "Thank you for the trip!"
Stacy said "You're welcome! We glad you came!" I said and she
smiled at me "Thank you sissy, it was amazing!" Bella said and I
laughed at her. We unloaded all the gifts and I got a call
"Hello?" I asked "Lexie, this is Abby." Abby said and I looked at
Austin "How are you?" I asked "I'm good. I'm calling to confirm
your baby shower tonight at six." She said "Six? Tonight? We just
got home." I said "Okay good so you will be here." She said and
"Okay." I said and we hung up "I have a baby shower tonight at
six." I said and he smiled "You will need to get ready now."
Austin said "Fine." I said "You fine with the girls tonight?" I
asked "Yup." He said kissing my lips softly.
I was mumbling to myself the whole way to our room and to
the shower and I turned the water on warm and then I got in and
after I got out I put on a cute maternity dress I had and I
crunched my hair so it would be a litle bit curlier. I put my
sandals on and then I went into the living room "You look
pretty." Austin said and I smiled "Thanks." I said and we sat
down I still had plenty of time "Lexie I have been thinking."
Austin said "Uh-oh." I said and he nodded "Allie is getting
married." He said "Uh-huh." I said "I think it's time we find our
own place." Austin said "Okay." I said and he looked at me weird
"I've been here for a year, I don't want to over stay my welcome.
" I said and Austin looked at me "Okay." He said I could tell he
was up to something but with going to this baby shower I didn't
say anything about it. "I will see you tonight. I love you guys."
I said and they smiled "We love you too." They said and I went to
my car and went to Abby's house of course I was the first one
Abby let me in and smiled "You look beautiful! I can't
believe you're twenty-four weeks! You're so small!" She said and
I smiled who is this woman? And what has she done with the real
Abby? "Come on in, you can help me set up." Abby said and I
nodded "When are you due?" Abby asked "September 30th." I said
"That's good, after your birthdays. How are you going to handle
school?" Abby asked "I'm going to do the first semester online, I
talked to my proffesors about the online program and they
recommended that and then in January I will have Starry in with
Kelsey at the day care and I will do my second semester then." I
said and she nodded "How many years do you have to do school?"
Abby asked "Well my CNA program knocked out a year, so just one
more year." I said and she nodded. This is the most we have
talked about me, "You make a good nurse." Abby said "Thank you."
I said "Me personally I would rather be a stay at home mom. But
I'm proud of you." Abby said and I smiled knowing that was a sort
of compliant but I didn't feel like I should take it like that. I
set out the food and Abby smiled at me "Pregnancy is a great
thing isn't it?" She asked me "Yes ma'am, I love feeling Starry
kick. It makes me feel connected." I said "You are connected.
Bonding for forty months." She said and I smiled at her.
Becca and Allie showed up first "Hey!" Becca and Allie
said smiling "Allie this is Becca, Becca this is Allie." I said
and she smiled "It's nice to meet you." Allie said and more
guests that I didn't know arrived. We had the snacks that Abby
prepared and then we all sat around talking about pregnancy
stories and Allie nodded "This is for you to be prepared since
you're engaged." I said and Allie smiled at me. "Gift time!" Abby
said and Allie finally lightened up, because she didn't know how
to respond to all the pregnancy and who breast fed or bottle fed
topic. I got a lot of cute gifts that I would need "Do you have a
name picked out?" Becca asked me "Starlet Alice." I said "Lovely
name!" Every said "It's so proper!" Abby said beaming about her
name "We're going to call her Starry though." I said and they
smiled at me. We stayed a little bit longer and then Allie and
Becca helped me get the stuff into my car "I will help you when I
get home, I'm leaving when you do." Allie said and I nodded.
When we got home Austin came out and he helped us carry the
stuff into the room we had set up for Starry. Allie sat at the
table "Let me guess you guys are planning on moving?" Allie asked
"Austin wants to, since you're getting married." I said "I'm not
going to kick you guys out. Mom is building a house for us, it's
in the works." Allie said and I looked at Austin "I didn't want
to overdo our stay." Austin asked "You would never over do it. My
mother loves all of you. She thinks of Lexie as her other
daughter along with Bella." Allie said and I smiled at her, "Now
I'm going to go home to get some rest. Love you guys!" Bella said
and I smiled at her. When she left I felt a sharp pain and
winced "Lex you okay?" He asked "No." I said and he rushed to my
side "Get Allie." I said and he rushed out and brought Allie and
Karen back over "Take her to the hospital now. Sharp pains and
pregnancy aren't a good mixture. We will be here for if the girls
wake up. Go. Keep us updated." Karen said and Austin carried me
to the car and then rushed to the hospital. I was in so much pain
I was crying. When we got there they had us wait but they saw my
face and his worried expression and I was seen sooner than I was
told to begin with. Doctor Walls was working and ran some tests,
my blood pressure was extremely high, my heart rate was high,
"The baby is an anxious one. She wants to come out now. We're
going to give you medicine to stop your labor. We don't want her
to come out yet." He said and Austin called Karen to inform her
and she said she would stay the night.
They had me hooked up to machines all night long and coming
to check on me, Austin held my hand I couldn't sleep "What if she
is born?" I asked "She is strong. She's your daughter. She will
make it." Austin said kissing my lips softly "Austin I'm scared."
I said "Me too." He admitted holding my hand, he called into work
for me and they said to take my time coming back. That afternoon
they finally stopped the labor and I was put on strict bed rest
for the next two weeks to begin with and then make it to my
appointment and see from there. I was able to go home the
following day and when I got home I felt sick to my stomach and
ran into the bathroom and puked, I had morning sickness all over
again. I could barely keep any food or liquid down so we had to
go to the doctor's and it wasn't morning sickness I had the flu
so I was given medicine and I spent the first week just sleeping.
Kelsey and Bella would curl up with me and sleep it off too, I
felt so bad because this brought back memories from my earlier
years but I was actually sick and not depressed.
