So this past week has been full of worry. I worry if I’m not feeling sick to my stomach or when my shirt fits two days in a row. I worry when I sleep, my dreams are even filled with worry. I worry about Jaden and if he’s going to adjust and I worry that he’ll feel left out when the babies come. I worry about leaving work and not coming back. I worry if I’ll be able to hack it as a stay at home mom. I worry if I’ll be able to find enough ‘me’ time to say sane. Everything I do if filled or has a feeling of worry.
It’s the weeks when we don’t have a doctor’s appointment that makes it more worrisome. At least when we’ve got the doctor’s appointment, we get to hear the heart beats and see the little nuggets dancing. Now when I wonder or start to feel worry, I close my eyes, take a deep breath and remind myself that someone greater is in charge. He’ll make the decisions and all I can do is take care of myself. Drink my water. Eat well-balanced meals (still working on that one…) Take my vitamins. Listen to my body and rest when I’m tired. But I still worry.
Here are some belly shots of where we are at during 11 Weeks. We are the size of limes!
We’ve got a doctor appointment on Thursday with the specialist. I’ll get my blood drawn for gestational diabetes. We’ll also have a first trimester screening and an in-depth ultrasound. I’ll keep praying that all three babies are healthy. If you’re a believer, please pray with me? We love all of our family and friends very much!
