Christmas seems to have marked a transition in my thoughts and feelings – for the better. I realized yesterday that sometime in the last couple weeks I finally stopped checking the TP for blood every time I went to the bathroom. And then I realized that I’ve also stopped checking the “countdown” feature on my cell phone every morning upon waking (for the first 16 weeks or so, I marvelled at each passing day and anxiously awaited each coming milestone).

Saturday I went to the store I like to call “Ancient Armada” and bought 4 maternity sweaters (got to love those post-Xmas sales!). As I was leaving the store I felt the tears rising, tears of happiness – that I’m buying maternity clothes for me… tears of thanksgiving.
