I lost my mother in October and am trying to accomplish the short to do list she left for me. The one thing she wanted for me to do immediately was get a driver's license. As a 35 year old NYC resident, I never really needed one. When I moved to small town VA to help take care of my mom, I still didn't get one until 6 days after her death. I felt really proud that I did it, but sad that I waited until it was too late for her to appreciate it.
The other thing she wanted was for me to have more children. She thought my 5 year old son would suffer from being an only child. Well I'm pregnant with my second who is due in December 2005. Again, I feel proud and sad at the same time.
The thing that I am working on now is being more social. Having fun. My first great attempt at that is to post this post. I hope my mom can appreciate my first (no matter how lame) attempt at being sociable.
(((HUGEHUGS))) I'm so sorry for the loss of your Mother. I just lost my Mom in May. I'm sure your Mom would be very proud of you right now and happy to here that you are expecting (congrats BTW!). If you ever need to talk, vent, anything feel free...I'll listen
I am so sorry for your loss. I also lost my mom in April of 2004 to cancer and it was so hard. She was my best friend and now I am pregnant and due in Feb. Right now I have had some problems with my pregnancy and sure wish that I could call her. I am 30 and still need my mom. So I totally understand where you are coming from. It is difficult to deal with. I am praying for you and sending you hugs. Wishing you peace and comfort!
Thank you very much for taking the time to reply. It sure feels good to know that I'm not alone in this. We will both be fine - We have awesome people watching over us.
I am very sorry for your loss. losing a parent has to be one of the most tragic things to go through. I am sure that she is very proud of you. congratulations on the upcoming birth of your second child. I hope to see you around here more often. take Care!

I lost my mom Aug 9th 2004 and gave bith Aug 25th 2004, 16 short days later. I still need my mom at 26 and could not belive I was going to be a mom with out my mom. I know what you mean about them wanting more and being excited about more grandbabies my mom never saw Peter.
We are here to talk or PM me anytime, since I don't look here more then once or twice a month.
I'm so sorry you've had to suffer the loss of your mom. You are such a sweet daughter to be taking her advice and fulfilling her wishes. Our situations (time wise) are similar, I lost my Dad in October and expecting twin babies in December. (((HUGS)))

I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my dad 2 years ago and found out I was pg the month after he died. It is very hard to deal with, loosing them in general, but when you add a baby to the mix it makes it even harder. BIG BIG HUGS and know we are all here to help you through this. If you need to talk please feel free to PM me.
I understand how you feel. I lost my mother November the 4th of 2001, and My DD was due in December 2001. I was very pregnant, and really wanted her to see her granddaughter. All my mother got to see was a picture of the sonogram. I still miss her 4 years later. My DD will be 4 years old December the 12th.
May God give you strength, and comfort you!
~11 months now!~
