Monday gratitude

Today was ok, tonight was hard. Just long. I couldn't remember the day of the week to put in the title of the post, and when I realized it was Monday, I groaned inwardly. Only Monday. A whole week ahead. I guess I really do need this post.

I went to the midwife today. Everything is looking great- holding steady. That's the best they can hope for right now. That should be great...I should be thrilled. I just keep thinking about how I might be on bedrest for 2.5 more weeks. I'm so selfish - that's really selfish. I should be ecstatic that I'm not being induced today.

So, today, on this Monday, I am grateful for:
  • Sleeping in my bed tonight, rather than a hospital bed
  • That baby girl has more time to come out on her own
  • A friend of mine called today and will be coming over on Thursday
  • We lasagna tonight that another friend brought over yesterday
  • Hubs hugs me when I cry, which is about daily right now
  • The midwife thinks the baby is 6-7 pounds, which sounds a lot easier to push out than a 10 pound baby

That's all I've got. Happy Monday.

I'm thankful for your determined positive outlook. I so wish I were in your shoes. I would love to be having another baby, even if it meant more bedrest and more waiting. I know you are thankful, and I'm thankful with you.
