Thankfull Thursday

Today is another one of those days where I really have to force myself to write this...not that I am in such a horrible place, but I do have a lot on my mind. And it is distracting to say the least. As many of your know from reading here I am still playing doge ball with my placenta. It is very low, classified as too low to birth vaginally and I have since been referred out to an OBGYN for their opinion on the matter. I meet with them later today and will no more info going forwards from there. At any rate it is looking more and more like a scheduled c-section for the bug and I...especially since I am still spotting. It is worrying to say the least, any form of spotting during pregnancy. Especially when it means I may have to have a c-section earlier then I would like and Ryan is still traveling for work. So here I am, trying to focus on the bright side and look at the little things I have to be thankful for amidst all of this stress and confusion:

  • getting the bugs welcome home outfit together, seeing it laid out and all matchy matchy and cute made my heart happy
  • sharing a pot of tea with my midwife during the home visit, I am so grateful that I chose to use a team of midwives and for all of the support they have given me
  • being on mat leave early. I was criticised by some for starting my mat leave 4 weeks early but given all that is going on right now it would appear as if I knew just what my body was going to need. I couldn't imagine having to work through all of this. I am so unbelievably tired these days and the spotting is really nagging on my brain
  • having the time to craft again. it has served as a welcome distraction and I missed keeping my hands busy
So that's it. My tiny but powerful list of things to be grateful for. Tell me kittens, what are your grateful for this week?
