I am trying to make as few photoless posts as possible, so I hope some photos from the past few weeks are ok for now. :)
One good thing about the past few days is that I haven't had much time to dwell on my bedrested state. I have been a miserable and sick lady. I think Elijah is starting to wonder who the big lump on the couch is who won't stop coughing and complaining.
It was confirmed again for me that staying in bed/on the couch really helps my contractions. When I was on bed rest with Elijah, not even rest kept them at bay, so this is a nice change. Of course, I'm still only 21 weeks along so maybe that has something to do with it.
Before the sickness struck this weekend, I had a moderate emotional breakdown. I feel like it should be easier than it is for me to focus on the positive aspects of this whole situation. It has been really easy for me to get caught up in the not-so-fun parts. I'm worried about a lot of things, so I'm trying really really hard to take this one day at a time. We have/had a busy February planned, so I'm trying to readjust my thinking about some things.
I keep telling myself that this could be SO MUCH WORSE. It helps when I think of the big picture. What could possibly be better than helping a new little person enter this world? We are making some sacrifices now so this little man can have a place in our family. I can't wait to meet him, and I will do whatever I can do to make sure he arrives in our arms safely.
