High-Risk OB Prep

On Monday, I shared with everyone how excited I was about visiting the high-risk OB/GYN.  I feel like this is the logical next step in my pregnancy journey, and hopefully he will have some advice regarding our attempts TTC. I have been carefully following another cyster's blog (Inhaling Hope - who also has EXCITING news to share!) and she wrote a post about having a list of 20-ish questions to ask the high-risk OB/GYN.  I'm currently in the process of coming up with my own list and adding in questions that she was generous enough to share with me.  I want to feel educated and at-ease when I leave the office tomorrow.

While my excitement is not to be understated, I'm also feeling somewhat sad. I have always wanted to get pregnant right around this time so that I can tell my family/friends at Christmas time. I've always (I started thinking about this around age 10..honestly) had this perfect idea of how I would share the news, and if I were pregnant now, I would be right around 12 weeks come Christmas.  Unfortunately, I'm not pregnant yet and who knows how long it will be. I think I need to stop creating my own plans and ideas and let God take over.  Whenever it happens will be wonderful, and I'll find a unique way to tell my family no matter what month it is :)

On that note, I plan to finish my list of questions today and hopefully make a loaf of banana bread. It's extremely dreary here today, with high winds and gallons of rain. It's one of those days where I can hear my bed calling my name loudly while my body defiantly pushes toward the excessive amount of work that needs to be done.  I hope to spend some time working on my novel later this week, but I feel like all the other chores constantly prevent me from doing this.

I wish everyone a blessed and wonderful Wednesday. Congratulations to Inhaling Hope on her wonderful news and congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Ronnie Sharpe on the arrival of their "peanut," Mckenna!


  1. Thanks for the shout out :)

    Let us know how the high risk appointment goes. I am hoping for the very best for you!! Maybe your second child will be announced around Christmas time!

  2. Thank you so much! I'm not sure if a second child is in the plans, but it all works out the way it's supposed to. Maybe it will be a Valentine's Day announcement instead? lol
