Another Reasonless Anxiety Reaction

…because everything is perfectly fine.

Of course.

I’ll scan in my brand new ultrasound photos, which definitively prove that I am pregnant with… something bloblike and fuzzy at the edges.  Like a Muppet, maybe, only smaller.


The only real significant news is that they’ve bumped my due date up by a week and a half.  Now they’re saying April 5, 2010, but given my tendency to pop early with the other kids, I’m to expect to give birth anytime after March 10th.

I feel like this ultrasound was really a milestone for me.  I saw the heartbeat, and the hands moving around, and even a bit of thumb-sucking.  I’ve been told by everyone who gets near me that everything looks great and there’s absolutely no reason to worry.

So I’m going to try harder, on the not-worrying side of things.  Because aside from these pre-appointment days when I get myself all revved up for no good reason, I really am enjoying this pregnancy.  Even the morning sickness carried with it a certain level of reassurance, and still, now, when I roll over in the mornings and wait to see if this is the day when my breasts are actually going to burst into flame, I have to smile because that’s what’s supposed to happen.

This is going to be OK.


  1. Congrats on a good ultrasound. Are you going to find out the baby’s flavor?

  2. well, of course everything is fine– I’m far too needy to be knocked up alone!!!! 🙂

    I’m glad it went well.

  3. I’m glad everythings running so smoothly for you!

  4. Ohhhh…you saw thumb sucking? How adorable. This is going to be more than OK. Believe it.

  5. YAY!!!
