A Bit of Anxiety...

Admittedly, I'm having quite a bit of anxiety about my ultrasound tomorrow.  I haven't felt as nauseous the past few days, which I have convinced myself means that something is wrong.  I'll know whether this is the case within 24 hours, but I am totally distracted today by thoughts of what would be wrong, looking at miscarriage statistics, etc.  Very helpful, right?

Ever since my positive pregnancy test, I knew anxiety would be an issue.  It hasn't been as bad as it could be, but I find it overwhelming from time to time.  Every twinge in my belly leads me to believe that something is wrong.

In an effort to quell these fears, I kept very busy this weekend, including building these two chaise lounge chairs that our cat immediately enjoyed.  If relaxing in the sun in a chaise doesn't make me feel better, I don't know what would (well, maybe if I were at a beach while on the chair or still in the chair today instead of at work).  Anyway, I'm just venting a bit and counting the hours until 7:45 AM tomorrow.


  1. I completely understand! I've been feeling a lot of anxiety as we approach our NT scan this Wednesday too. Sending you lots of prayers for tomorrow! P.s. those chairs look so relaxing and inviting!

    1. Oh, boy - the big one on Wednesday. I look forward to your update! We have that on July 3rd. The chairs are relaxing... I'm thinking I might need a day off tomorrow to sit in them and enjoy the sunshine.
