leaning into trust.
these last few weeks have been brutal. what started with my daughter getting sick with a nasty virus, ended with me in the hospital. not the way i anticipated spending the last few weeks being pregnant.
i am going on day twelve or thirteen of being sick. i lost count a few days ago. being sick and pregnant is the worst. it started as a respiratory virus, then about a week in turned into extreme nausea. i wasn’t even able to drink water, which is not a good thing when you are pregnant. because i was so dehydrated, i started having tons of contractions. false labor is usually caused by dehydration. anyways, after receiving an iv, getting some anti-nausea meds, and sleeping a ton, i am finally starting to get better. everyone i have talked to has said this particular virus lasts two to three weeks.
there were a few moments i just kept thinking i am so not ready to have this baby yet. so for right now, i am just happy to still be pregnant. thankful that she will come at exactly the right time. and resting while i lean into trust a little more. i am now 37 weeks and not at all anxious for her to come out. three more weeks, and i am going to use the time to just rest.
