Thankful Thursday Returns and Pregnancy Update: Week 31
Today, Thankful Thursday returns in the form of a pregnancy update. The past few days have proven to be a bit insane. Here is why I am thankful...
I am thankful to still be pregnant. I am 31 weeks today. Just six more weeks, Indy, you can do it!
I am thankful to be on "rest" instead of in the hospital.
I am thankful that my water did not break and that if it was leaking, it stopped.
I am thankful for friends and family who are willing to make/buy meals and who are planning to visit.
I am thankful that, even though I had to cancel the Donut's princess and pirate costume party, there is a sufficient alternative that will require no effort for me at all at Barnes and Noble (expect Fancy Nancy Fashion Show pics soon).
I am thankful for the sleep I got last night.
I am thankful that the kids are behaving really well and that I'm not letting the mess of their toys on the floor bug me... too much.
I am thankful that everyone is understanding about my backing out of plans.
I am thankful for the ready-made meals at Whole Foods.
I am thankful for a husband who comes home from one job, does my domestic duties, and then sleeps before going to his other job... after bringing me a burger from Cheeseburger Charley's (see, I make a terrible vegetarian these days.)
I am thankful for the liquid calcium magnesium supplement that helps me to rest and calms down the almost constant contractions.
I am thankful that we are past the super dangerous point of my pregnancy and if he had to come today, he would be okay.
I am thankful for two days of sunshine and that I remembered to open the door and the shades and "let the sunshine in".
I am thankful that I had a chance to know Professor Dale McGilliard and that I took as many acting classes from him as was possible. He will be very missed.
