Spotting stopped. This is good. I am grateful.
My next U/S is Thursday. I'll be roughly 8w4d. If that one looks good, I think I'll be comfortable waiting 2 weeks to do another. Of course I say this now. We'll see what I say on Thursday.
What with having to start a new job this coming week, my DH reminded that despite all the frenzy that is about to take place, I must remember that the most important thing is take care of myself and this baby. Whatever the cost. He means I shouldn't allow myself to be too rushed, too stressed, or too overwhelmed as I adjust to the new job and new routine.
He's right, of course. And he knows me too well. That's me - getting all swept up in getting out the door on time, making it to appointments on time, getting to work on time, getting the dogs to daycare...rush, rush, rush. Pressuring myself to learn a new job and prove myself and impress everyone. Trying to run errands during the lunch hour and multi-tasking and doing all the things that we women tend to do.
I have to let the need to do all of that go. No pressure. Believe things will get done without my forcing them to happen sooner. Prioritizing and letting the little stuff go.
This is going to be a real test. But I intend to pass it with flying colors, because there is a little drumstick counting on me.
