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!
