No I'm not going to proselytize. I'm just feeling blessed by God right now that this pregnancy is still active within me. Every morning I wake up to no bleeding I'm feeling further blessed with having a chance to bring forth life. I realize that the pregnancy could go south at any time given my infertility history but I'll live for now and be happy with the joyous promise I've been given.
PNW estimated my due date as 30 July but that was because they forgot when my last period started. They are off by three days. While we all know that babies come into the world when they are ready I can't help but state that I'm actually due on my birthday next year.
I was born on my great grandmother's birthday. How cool would it be if my baby were born on the same day? If I turn out to be carrying twins it is really doubtful I'll make it to my birthday but hey I'll be happy to just have a healthy baby or two placed in my arms when the time comes.
I have to remind myself when doing housework or shopping to be more cautious now that I'm in a "delicate condition", "with squirrel", "bun in the oven" or what have you. Friday when J and I went grocery shopping he caught me dragging the grocery cart to the side of the aisle to let an older man through with his handicapped cart. He reminded me of two things: I too am handicapped and I'm also now pregnant. I'm so used to moving out of the way for older people out of respect whether or not I'm using my cane.
Yesterday J and drove down to the outlets in Centralia where I purchased for less than $40.00, two tops and two cardigans one size larger since my nicer blouses are getting too tight in the bust. If all goes well, after Christmas I'll be having to purchase maternity clothes though I don't expect to get very big since my mom and her mother never showed while pregnant with the exception of a larger bust and small stomach bump looking more like they ate a big meal. I'll use up some survey points to get gift cards for the maternity clothes when I need them this way it won't hurt my budget. I've been saving those points up for years just for this particular need. 22,795 points later I'm finally ready to use them up. I'm being frugal.
