My Tatum


A beacon of light in this debacle is my sweet daughter– sheltered from all of this ugliness in my womb– and yesterday we had a prenatal appointment.  I’ve been extremely worried about the effects my extreme stress would have on Tatum but she’s looking and sounding good.  Measurement-wise she’s right where she should be and her heartbeat is strong, as are her frequent movements.  The only concern is me.  I have lost 5 pounds since the first time I was weighed.  Given the circumstances the doctor seemed certain this was a direct result of stress and said I needed an extra 200 food calories a day supplemented with Ensure.  On December 2nd I’ll do my glucose test for gestational diabetes. 

Because my name is legally Reed [and that’s Adam’s last name as well] that will be Tatum’s surname.  I’m debating whether or not to take the ‘Ann’ out of ‘Marisann,’ which I will most likely do seeing as how that was not ny idea in the first place.  Her birth certificate will be left blank regarding paternity.  Classy I know….but no other child of mine will ever be subjected to this.

With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,

I'm blunt and opinionated. Virtually everything I say or do is a contradiction but I'm not a hypocrite. I never hesitate to speak my mind and never fail to leave an impression wherever I go. You love me, you hate me, but you'll never forget me.
