The big anatomy scan is coming up. Unfortunately, we booked the appointment right after the start of the new year, so it has been on my mind for a while. As our appointment gets closer, time seems to go even slower. I think I have spent more time online on "birth boards" this time around than the last. Originally I wanted to see if other people were as sick as I was and how they were managing. Now it just seems to fuel my anxiety as I read about some of the things that have gone awry with the health of the mother or the baby.

I have to remember that I am doing the best that I can to take care of myself and the little uterine passenger. I have to keep reminding myself that I have done this once already and that somehow I did manage to bring a beautiful healthy person into this world. I hope and pray that I am able to do it again.

18 weeks tomorrow.

  1. The anxiety I can relate too. But I always reminded myself that no matter what happens I will love and cherish that little one always. As a mom you know and fight for exactly what you need to do for your little one and I personally think your doing a fantastic job. What a wonderful milestone to reach. 18 weeks is always the biggest and once 20 weeks hit, it's really just waiting for the time to hurry up :-)

    Hugs sweetie. In a few weeks you will be finding out what Madison will be blessed to be a big sister too. And weather a little more pink or a new addition of blue will be added to your family. Hugs
