Computer is still not working, so it’s another gem from the cell phone.
I know that I’ve been anxious through most of this pregnancy, but this week just seemed to hit a peak. The place I struggle with it the most, which I mention a little bit in my video is putting this nursery together. There are so many memories I have of working on registries and the nursery in my other pregnancies, and I think that kind of tipped the scale this week. I can literally walk into the nursery, look at everything in there, and experience a complete creativity block having no idea what I want it to look like. I know it will come together eventually, so I’m just taking it one step at a time.
This week, other than the ultrasound appointment, there isn’t much to share. As far as my stress levels, I have good days and bad days. While in most pregnancies, women can breathe a sigh of relief after a certain point, my stress just seems to get a little higher. With the umbilical cord placement and the fact that they still don’t have any idea why my other two pregnancies ended the way they did, all I can do is take each day as it comes with faith and the knowledge that God isn’t leaving my side anytime soon.
This video gives us three end scenarios for this pregnancy.
Also, to those of you who have asked about a baby shower, I did talk about this in Week 18, but I realize it has been a while since then, so the short answer is that I’m not having one until after he is born. But there will be one, I promise!
