Hope for the Best

All seems to be going well with Baby H. The ultrasound looked good and we got to see the baby move like a kung fu master at one point, it was hilarious.

That being said, I am learning humility during this pregnancy. Not that I've been overly arrogant like "Look what I've done!" "Look how cute I am." blah, blah, blah. But after really good appointments, I do tend to get overconfident. As if I have any control over what happens with this pregnancy.

So after the great ultrasound, started to feel real confident and within a few hours found that I was spotting. This can be common during pregnancy, but since I haven't had any - well, it freaked me out something fierce! And knocked me back down to reality! Let me say, everything is fine. Haven't spotted since that day, which is a relief. Just an example of how I'm learning to be humble in regards to this. It's not like I'm overly religious, but am just learning to respect the whole process A LOT MORE! This is not something I anticipated having to "learn". I've read articles about women summing up pregnancy in one word and they usually say:
miracle, annoying, long - that kind of stuff. For me, I'm going back to humbling. If for no other reason than the fact that I have no control over how the pregnancy will progress. All I can do is eat the best that I can, get some exercise and hope for the best.
