I hope everyone had a great week and is ready for the weekend! I was going to post about something much different today, but after yesterday’s events I wanted to share that instead. I always promised to be real and honest on my blog and want to keep that promise. Yesterday I met with my new doctor (who I love!) since I will not be able to deliver in the small town that I live, and all went extremely well until she went to find out if the baby’s head was down yet. The head was down all right, just a little too far (okay a lot to far), so needless to say, this girl is on bedrest! No more work, no more exercise and no more house work, but she did give me bathroom privileges ;). Being a first time pregnant mama I completely overwhelmed and worried (an understatement) by this information. I wasn’t at all worried for myself, I was just extremely worried that my baby wouldn’t make it to full term. But after talking to my husband and my mom and dad, I felt reassured and supported. I am not going to lie, I am the type of person who takes something and thinks of the worst possible scenarios, and I did the entire drive home from the doctors. But after a long nights sleep I feel much more optimistic today. I know with lots of rest, support and positive thinking on my behalf, everything is going to be great. Now the hard part, doing well…..nothing! The only part that makes this easy is knowing it is in the best interest for my baby. I will do ANYTHING for her, and the weird part is, I am not ready for pregnancy to be over. I have honestly really enjoyed every moment, from the kicks and flips, to the bonding I have felt with my little girl already. Since being pregnant, I have never understood as much as I do now, the importance of a mother and daughter bond. I am lucky enough to have such an amazing mother to share that bond with, and hope the same for my daughter and I. So for the next little while it’s just baby and me relaxing and bonding. If anyone has time for tea, you know where to find me :).
Now that, that is out in the open I feel much better. But lucky for everyone, it will give me more time to post and share my findings on Facebook. Up until now, I have been extremely busy getting ready for baby, which is now a blessing in disguise. I don’t have to lay here and think of all the things I have to do, since they are done!
I know I am not alone in the baby complications department. I would love to hear from those mama’s out there if you have had any complications and how you dealt with them!
Have an awesome weekend, and remember to stay on track. Even though it’s now camping season and those hot dogs may seem tempting, opt for a healthier choice. Veggie burgers anyone?
