~ Alleviated Anxiety
Well, I've had some anxiety with the Christmas holiday and anticipating the movements of this new baby that I had worked myself up into expecting the worse as I went into my appointment with the OB. I think part of this was due to the fact that the last time I was in he had a hard time finding the heartbeat. But this time, BOOM, there it was along with lots of kicking and a baby on the move.
What a blessing, what a relief, and as I breathed out all the tension I had been storing up inside of me I am now more aware of the turnings and kicks of this new life inside of me!
So for those of you who do not know, I lost my daughter Mychaela this past April two days before a scheduled C-section. They attributed her death to a cord accident, there was nothing medical and no scientific reason for her death. As a result, they are treating this pregnancy as a high-risk, although they have no reason to suspect it to be so.
Anyway, all this to set up that my due date is June 11th, but they will be delivering this baby 2-3 weeks early. So I will have a May baby.
Oh! I also will find out on the 25th if Bill and I are to expect a boy or girl. I'll keep you all posted!
Take care and I'll write more next week!
