I contacted K this morning to see how her appointment went yesterday with her uterine specialist. She indicated that things went well and that she’s feeling a little nervous today, as she’s not as sick as she has been previously.
I told her I was happy things are looking good and that it’s normal to feel varying levels of sickness. I told her that her new mantra is: I am pregnant today. I will enjoy today as much as possible, and that worrying only steals your strength. I let her know that I have faith in her strength and that I’ll be ducking into the background now, but if she needed anything from me, whether it’s advice or a shoulder, that I’d be there.
I feel like I can go on with my normal life now, and that’s a bit of a weight lifted. I can’t wait to see my daughter’s first soccer game tomorrow night, now that I’ll be home, and I’m excited for the possibilities that the summer holds.
