Thank you for the support. I have never taken on the task of writing such a long fiction piece. It is going to be a struggle.

But at least it was fun last night to start on it. I actually have several scenes written, and many ideas to go on.

I have decided to base it off of my story, but to change some of the situations and reactions. I may even pull in some ideas from other birth stories I have read, etc. (saying I get any further, LOL [8)])
For example, I love the way a friend told me she was pregnant...it was much better than how I announced to her. LOL

Got a question... it has been too long... What all does the OB/nurses check for at the inital appointment? I remember them getting the baseline vitals/weight/etc and talking about medical history. Anything else?

Thanks!
Sharel

Sharel ~ I think a fiction book is a great idea!! You definitely have the talent and the knowledge. I also think it is a great idea because I had the same idea myself! So far I am writing from the position I'm in now... expecting again after losing my first to pre-e and placental abruption. I plan to call it "fiction," but what I have put down on paper so far has been my story. I don't know if I'll ever go anywhere with it, but I think it will be very therapeutic. Hopefully, my story will have a good ending.

I also wish you the best of luck! I know you will have an audience in all of us!!

What a wonderful idea, Sharel! You truly have a talent for writing, I know it will be great!

I also started writing my "story" and feelings in a journal (on the computer) back in July when Maggie had just come home from the hospital. I think that things were still too close to the surface then, because I would always break down or end up mad when I wrote about it, so I have never finished. I've been thinking about it a lot lately, and today's "question" just might be the motivation I need.

So, I wish you the best of luck, and I know whatever you write will be fabulous!

Some recent topics on the board seem to have started my creative juices flowing.

After having Aaron, I tried to write about my personal experiences in a journal of sorts, and I did get some of it written, but other things got in the way and I never got back to it. That was difficult to do, though, too because some feelings, etc were really too personal to write.

I don't know if this is going to go anywhere or not...but I am going to try to write a novel-like story about a women with preeclampsia. I think that in this format - - fiction - - I can use my experiences to build a story, but I can pick and choose what to put in it.

I have no idea if I'll get any more written than the 12 pages I did tonight, but I hope I can. And I have never written anything very long, so I don't know if it will be truly readable.....

Well, anyway, that's what I've been up to tonight. Maybe I should have gone to bed earlier instead! [:I]

Wish me luck!
