I Hate Sad News.

Hey friends! It's time for my WEEKLY blog post {Gosh I'm such a blog slacker lately} for Talk To Us Tuesday hosted by one of my favorite IRL people, Seriously Shawn and of course myself. If you have a post up or are planning to write a post, link up with us and TALK to us! We love being nosey and the juicier the better! =)

I have to start this TTUT post off with some sad news. If you know or read Date Girl, then you need to know that she delivered her sweet baby girl on Sunday. She was 19 weeks pregnant with her first baby, lovingly nicknamed Roo. She's had complications with bleeding throughout her journey but the doctors told her Roo was fine.

While on pelvic/bed rest and unbeknownst to her, her water broke a couple days prior to Sunday. She started experiencing back labor and Match immediately drove her to the ER. She was then transported via ambulance to a Labor & Delivery hospital nearby. The news was heartbreaking. There was no amniotic fluid and the assumption was the baby would be stillborn, which she was. 

Date Girl got to hold her sweet beautiful baby and sing to her while the nursing staff took pictures and got her hand/footprints. The delivery was quick and effortless. As you can imagine, her and Match are devastated and heartbroken for the baby they were longing to bring home in a few more months. 

If you pray, please pray for comfort and peace. I can not imagine what they are going through. If you have time, please jump over to her post from yesterday by clicking HERE and send her some love. No words will make the pain go away but blogger love is always appreciated. She will be taking a much deserved break. If you don't hear back from her, just know that she's reading your comments and will get back to you when she's ready.

I hate sad news. Don't worry....I'm not ending on that note. I have to give a shout-out to my girl Stacy from Stacy Uncorked. This girl sent me THREE bottles of her own homemade wine! Do you know how excited I am to try it?? I swear, bloggy friends are so thoughtful!
 I'm waiting for a special occasion to come up before I open them. I have a feeling it will be the BEST wine I've ever had! I'll let you know! Thank you again, Stacy!

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen these next few pictures.

Check out my big girl getting her teeth cleaned for the 2nd time! She was so good! This makes a momma proud. My advice: The earlier the better. She was too young to be scared.

This is NEVER something you want to see in your rear view mirror:
Don't worry....Emma and/or my cleavage got me out of a ticket. I almost hugged the po-po officer for letting me go with just a warning. 

Do you have an instagram account? Let me know so I can follow you! You can find me at user name one_impulsive_addict. I get on daily. You know I love stalking pictures.

Link up with us and we promise to be your bestest friends! =) Have a great Tuesday!!

I was so sure DG and Roo were going to be fine, the doctors didn't seem overly worried. I know they aren't God but it's so sad and disappointing when they can't do what's necessary to save a beautiful life. My heart breaks for DG and Match!

Stacy asked for my address to send me some wine, dang it I need to send that to her!

I need to call and make an appointment to have my teeth cleaned before Cali, I won't tell you how long it's been, I have issues with the dentist!

I knew your girls got you out of that it girl!

Delilah Love said...

Oh that is just heartbreaking. I'm heading over there to show her some love. I delivered twins at almost 16 weeks and it was devestating. My heart just aches for her right now.

Amanda said...

maybe it's just me but I like seeing the red and blue flashing lights. *sigh* dang this job has messed me up! <3

Xazmin said...

Heartbreaking news. I hate sad news too. I will be keeping them in my prayers.

Your hotness works wonders. Dodged a ticket - you rock!

I haven't been to the dentist in forever - I'm lucky to have good teeth that don't get cavities, but dang they need a good cleaning!

Nadine Hightower said...

I hate going to the dentist. HAAAATE!!!

And I agree... start early! It looks like she was such a big girl.

Stacy Uncorked said...

Ohhhhh poor DG! That's so heartbreaking.

I'm glad the wine made it safe and sound, even though I put the wrong label on one. ;) I'll be dying to find out how you like them! :)

I wish we would have found the dentist we have now much earlier - maybe we could have avoided all of Princess Nagger's Drama Queen moments...your daughter looks so calm, cool and collected! :)

I think it's hilarious you took a picture of the flashing lights in the mirror - that's blogger dedication.

I just downloaded instagram on my Android - I'll have to get busy taking pics so you can stalk me. I think I signed up as StacyUncorked... :)

Time Flies, Mother Nature’s Hot Flash, Princess Nagger’s Final Words

Stacie said...

That is heartbreaking and so scary. I can't imagine what they must be going through. I'll head over to visit and be lifting them up in prayer.

Keep your foot off the gas and keep your cleavage in, for crying out loud!

allstarme said...

I hate sad news too; I talked about something sad/annoying today but nothing like that story! God, awful. I am on instagram too: Scriptor79. I'll follow you!

Sarah Kate said...

Oh no. I hadn't heard the news about Roo. That is just so, so sad. I've really grown to love Date Girl and my heart breaks knowing how sad she is right now. Thanks for letting us know.

On a happier note, I am 100% certain that homemade wine will beat almost anything you can buy at the liquor store. I have some friends who make their own and even though I'm not a big drinker, I can never turn it down!

Connie Weiss said...

I'm heart broken for Date Girl. Losing a baby that early is devastating. I'm praying for her and her hubby.

What did you do to get pulled over? Speeding? Singing in the car?

See you SOON!!

Steph said...

I just recently started following Date Girl. My heart hurts for her. There isn't really anything else I can say about it.

Nicole said...

I agree sad news is sad but that's horrible!

VandyJ said...

Nick dodged a ticket for running a stop sign, the cop turned on his lights and we knew it was for us but then the cop just kept going. This was on an indian reservation and we think it was our Wyoming plates that helped avoid the ticket.

MiMi said...

So incredibly sad for DG. :( I can't imagine. I mean, I can imagine a tiny bit, and that breaks my heart, which means it's about 10x worse for her.
I can't believe you took a pic of the cop car...I would have been too busy bawling. LOL
And how cool about the wine?!

MiMi said...

Also, Emma's legs are TAN.

Johanson Family said...

I just am still in shock about DG and Roo.. I couldn't agree more that Blog friends are the support that we need in times like this...

I wish I liked wine. I really REALLY wish I liked it... When we were in Italy, I REALLY wanted to like it but just can't do it-- my heart is with Tequilla.. but I LOVE blog snail mail fun!! Lucky!!!!

You know I'm an Instagram LOVA of yours. Isn't it SUPER FUN!!?!?


Jill said...

I'm so sorry to hear Date Girl's sad news. My heart aches for them. I had been following her blog since before they found out they were expecting, and I was so excited for them! Friends of mine went through a similar sad. I'll be holding them all in my prayers!

Mmmmm...homemade wine...I bet it will be amazing! Enjoy!! :)

Rebekah said...

My heart just breaks for her. So devastating.

Homemade wine?? That sounds amazing! Yay for not getting a ticket!

jennykate77 said...

I'm just so so sad for DG and Match. I can't imagine that kind of heartbreak. Seems like it could have been avoided somehow. Definitely keeping them close in prayer.

That pic of Em in the dentist chair is adorable! Such a big girl!

Glad the girls were able to get you out of a ticket! They're proven to be good at all sorts of, drinks...I say the sky is the limit! ;)

Lourie said...

So sad...and yeah...I do not like sad either. Going over there now!

Emmy said...

Oh no I have been behind on blogs so had not heard that, or my heart is breaking for her! She was so excited. Ugh!!

Glad you girls- probably both got you out do the ticket

Melissa Estes said...

My heart is breaking so much right now for her!
So you may have to open that wine!
I love instagram and am now following you! Instagram name is mestes225

Heathers Happenings said...

My heart is breaking for DG and her hubby.

Hubby promised me a iPhone in the next few weeks, so I can instagram :)

Chell said...

That is just horrible sad and heart breaking.

Ohhhhh Pina Colada wine? That has to be good.

starnes family said...

I'm so heartbroken for your friend. I will definitely pray for her. (I pray. Hush.)

Homemade wine? Yes, please.

becca said...

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

When I read her blog yesterday, my heart broke. So sad.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

So sorry about the news about your friend. They are on my prayer list.

hotpants™ said...

I love me some Date Girl. Her and Match are in my thoughts and prayers.

Nikky44 said...

Well done your little princess.

Joining in Prayers <3

Megan W said...

Thanks for sharing the news, although sad, because at least now even more prayers can be said and support be rallied. Comfort and healing for DG and her husband will be in my prayers.

I have an Android phone and so bummed that only iPhones had Instagram. So last week when I could get it I was so excited. And I love it! Looking forward to checking out all your photos!

Mercy D'souza said...

So sad about the baby. I can only imagine how the mother must be feeling right now.

Amy said...

Gosh, that is so sad. I can't even imagine. Definitely sending some love and prayers out for her and her family.

Crazy Shenanigans-JMO said...

How sad and heartbreaking for her! I'll definitely pop over and send her good thoughts. Woohoo for getting out of that ticket. I follow you! (jmomiller), I'm addicted to instagram!
