Time Flying

Is it Wednesday already??!!?? :O

I can't seem to keep up these days. Time is flying by! Work is crazy but it's starting to really evolve into something interesting. Time will tell how it goes but I'm very conscious of how work stress will affect my pregnancy. I know that stress can trigger my fibro so I want to be very careful not to overdo things and cause a flare-up, expecially since my body is dealing with so much else.

Friday will be an interesting day. On one hand, I'm excited because R and I are going away for a four-day long weekend. He has a singing competition not too far from where his family lives. So I'm going along. It will be nice to visit with his family. It's the first time we've seen them since we got pregnant, so it will be nice to share this together. We told them awhile ago but we haven't told the extended family on either side just yet. Another week.

However, Friday also marks another important day. Kenneth's due date. The day he was supposed to have been born. I would love to say that it's not that difficult, but I'd be lying. I know 3 people all due within the next week and a bit. It's so hard to wrap my mind around being 11 weeks pregnant when I know I should be giving birth soon (or already have).

But I'm trying not to get caught up in the what-ifs. What matters is that this pregnancy is going better for a change.

So Friday will come and I will think of Kenneth wistfully. I've already passed the point where I miscarried him so from here on out I'm in completely uncharted waters.

I'm looking for some smooth sailing.

(if you don't hear from me tomorrow, I'll be back on Monday- have a great weekend everyone!)

I'm glad that you're doing well... have been thinking about you. Emily's EDD is coming up too, and I know at least part of what you're feeling. Enjoy yourself this weekend! Time with family is always special.

I'll be thinking of you and Kenneth on Friday, but I'm glad things are going so well. Have a great trip!

Yeah...please do not get caught in what-ifs. That takes the stress to a totally new level.

Make sure your work does not start sapping your energy a lot. I hope you enjoy your weekend...R sings? Wow! Do let us know what happened in the competition.

Will think of Kenneth tomorrow.

Those uncharted waters are 'fun', and I've found it doesn't necessarily help with the stress so much to be past the miscarriage point. Then again, my latest was at 7 weeks, and I didn't feel like I'd get a baby until 20 weeks (I'm 29 weeks now).

Things sound like your pregnancy is going so well! I am so happy for you and your hubby. I know how hard those due dates are- we had two, and they are always bitter days, full of remembrance. I am so glad you have a wonderful new life to look forward to.

Hugs and happy ICLW!

11 weeks, wow!

I will be thinking of you today. Enjoy your trip looking forward to you moving into the 2nd trimester soon!

Sending lots of love. Due dates are important markers and for me, I found that although painful, acknowledging the day has been healing for me. (Caitlin was premature and had she been born on her due date, she would have had a better chance at living.) Thinking of you and Kenneth.
