Fabulous Friday

Happy Fabulous Friday all! It's been a day of highs and lows but a strangely fabulous one overall!

It's strange how a low can also be a high. I saw my psychologist this morning and she confirmed my suspicions - I have mild pre-natal depression. It's funny that mild is determined by the fact I'm high functioning. I don't feel high functioning sometimes but I know I'm able to get through the day.

I was glad for the diagnosis, not just to know what I have to work on, but to gain confidence in myself that my instincts were right. I've lost confidence in so many areas of my life at the moment so it was great to know I can still trust my instincts. Now, I start on the journey of learning more about the disease and starting to unravel the messy mix of thoughts in my mind.

The other fabulous thing about today is it is 100 days until Sticky arrives. I've decided I'm going to work on convincing Dr T. to deliver Sticky at 38 weeks which will be 13 January 2014. I'm sure I can put my persuasive powers to good use. So, only 100 days until then. It feels like a huge milestone as the days slowly tick away.

So, today I'm in a slight state of flux about my diagnosis and will take a few days to get my head around it. I would have liked to thought that my pregnancy journey has been bumpy enough, but it seems I've got another bump to get over. Maybe it's the baby gods way of making sure I experience every aspect of this journey so I can share it with all of you. I like to think that battling depression is just the price I pay to bring a truly unique child into the world that will do something amazing like cure cancer!

Have a great weekend all!


    Is an early delivery really worth risking the health of your baby instead of following your doctors recommendation and waiting a bit longer??

  2. Thanks for your comment. As I said, we won't be risking the health of the baby and won't be having her earlier. Unless she decides to come earlier, we'll be having her by Cesar at 38 weeks which is the time recommended by our ob. We've struggled so much to bring her into the world we're not about to do anything to risk her health and safety.
