Catching Our Rainbow

Hoping for a rainbow after the storm…

Six

on June 3, 2014

Six.

That’s how many sleeps until our next ultrasound. Less than a week. That’s also how many sleeps until our first appointment with our midwife. Monday is a big day for us.

Thankfully, our appointment is really early (7:30) so there will be no waiting all day until the appointment. I don’t think my nerves could handle that. Also, since we have one of the first appointments we shouldn’t have to wait too long. So that’s another bonus.

I’m trying to focus on all of the positives:
-I still haven’t had any spotting
-My only cramps have been due to the fact that I haven’t had a normal poop in almost three months
-While it is waning, I’ve had nausea that has been consistent enough to keep me from losing my mind

Honestly, the only negative is that I have RPL brain that I can’t seem to turn off. Whenever I get hopeful or excited there is a little voice in my head that is convinced that it is not possible for things to go this well–that the world will not let me be this happy.

I’m just trying to focus on the positives and trying to remember that even though time passes by so slowly, it is passing and Monday will eventually be here.

    Don’t worry too much about RPL brain, as it will stay with you all the way. Going on 33 weeks here and it’s still there. I’ve decided to accept that it is part of the journey!
    As for your constipation issue, dried apricots have been my saviors! And, bonus, they’re also a good source of iron :)
    Can’t wait for your update on Monday! Xox
