"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 there.
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.
