"It takes a village to raise a child." I'd heard the quote before and never really thought about it. Now, I couldn't agree more. Euan (and myself) had help from week 4 and it has taken so many to make the pregnancy successful. I am so grateful that I have love and support all around me.
Excitement. To know I never have to be pregnant again is really exciting. It is a huge relief. I feel like I can move forward and focus on being a mom, wife, friend, and just be me, not some sad version of myself walking around like a zombie who has been hit by a semi.
My health update. I am working on increasing my energy and appetite. I haven't been as hungry or excited about food as I had thought or hoped. I think it will just take some time. The vomiting and nausea are totally gone. My blood pressure has its moments but I am hoping it will resolve soon. My arm is healing from where my PICC line lived, I also thought this would heal quicker but we are making good progress.
