Is it too early to call this the early Spring thread? Wishful thinking?

Our good news today is dd2 got a place at our/her first choice school! At least we don't have to faff about with sorting that out :-)
Baby is still happily inside me. I'm having intermittent contractions but I now only have 12 hours left on the drugs to stop contractions. After that they will not try to stop my labour. Baby looks to be a good size on ultrasound which significantly increases chances of a good outcome. It's still very much wait and see what happens. We may have a baby soon or it could be a few weeks before he/she puts in an appearance.
"So, after a dramatic nine hours of increasingly strong and very regular contractions (and the whole neonatal team rearranging the delivery room) my contractions stopped for a bit and I got a bit of sleep... Contractions have re-started so maybe baby today or maybe not. No idea when I'll next update or what that update will be..."
Hello, I didn't know you existed A very kind lady pm'd me as she found me struggling on a thread I started plus I was getting flamed by the haters
I won't go through my other thread issues but I would very much appreciate prayer for my first (and last) cycle of IVF in the Czech Republic in June. I am (almost) 42 and using donor eggs as I miscarried last year and I have a blocked tube and I'm running out of time with very little money. Please pray that, if we do not end up with a baby, that God will not leave me devastated and that I will see a glimpse perhaps of an even greater happiness? I'm afraid I have made this baby an 'idol' for which I am ashamed. I worry I won't be blessed because of this.
