Letting go of the fear

Today was a good day. I got the call with my final amnio results and everything is normal!! I was fairly relieved after the first results, but now I'm ready to really rejoice that everything looks good.

I had another ultrasound at my regular doc's office, and everything on the inside looks good too. The placenta has completely pulled itself away from the cervix, and is no longer even low-lying. My cervix is long and closed, and the baby is happy, moving around and heart is beating away.

I'm starting to "pop" out a little more, and I don't think my skinny jeans would fit anymore if I tried to put them on (which I'm not planning to do.) On my to-do list for the weekend is to have my husband pull the maternity clothes out of the basement.

I'm planning to tell the women at D's playgroup this week that I'm pregnant. (Can't wait to see their faces when I tell them I'm almost 19 weeks... but whatever. Self preservation, right?) I'm excited about the prospect of telling people and trying to let go of the fear and just enjoy the rest of the pregnancy.

Letting go of that fear is never an easy thing to do. I commend you for being able to do so.

You should be able to enjoy the rest of your pregnancy. You deserve it so much.
