Fabulous Friday

Happy Fabulous Friday all. What's fabulous about today is letting go.

Yesterday was my 26 week check up at the obstetrician. It was the first visit that I wasn't nervous. There was not a single seed of doubt that anything would be wrong with Sticky. It was a sign I was finally believing she would be ok. It felt good!

Everything went well at the appointment. This was the first month that I haven't put on any weight so I was surprised but happy my eating approach is paying off. I know the weight is going to come eventually, and will probably come quickly, but I'm prepared for that.

Sticky’s heartbeat is going strong. It was 140 beats per minute at the last appointment and up to 150 beats this time. She's wriggling about and clearly growing strong. I mentioned the depression to Dr T. and he said he will get a clinical counsellor to visit me in hospital as they need to watch me closely to make sure it doesn't develop into post natal depression so I guess it's good to know I’ll be monitored.

We spoke to Dr T. about my grandmother and booking in the cesar. He doesn't have his operation schedule for the new year yet but said it won't happen at the start of week 38. So the dream of 13 January is over and we're now back to the 20 January. I'm ok with that. I'm not pushing it and am happy being an obedient mother. Honestly, I still have a sneaky suspicion she will come early so only time will tell.

So overall, it was a positive appointment and I'm glad to know everything is on track. It's hard to believe that I won't be working come our next appointment but I'm glad of that. I was exhausted by the time I got into work after the appointment. My energy is most definitely starting to wane so I’m glad I made the decision to finish work early.

What I'm most happy about is finally feeling like I'm starting to relax and feel excited about the pregnancy. I had lunch with a friend this week who told me I seemed happier than the last time I saw her. I think she's right. The counselling has certainly helped me to let go of some of the things that was holding me back. I know I still have some work to do but I'm making progress and starting to feel the difference and that is most definitely fabulous!
