A month of being stuck in a hospital on bed rest could sometimes feel like eternity – and while being upset seems like the most natural reaction, sometimes, you just have to let it go, accept it for what it is, do the best you can and find all the good within the circumstance. Needless to say, despite of my situation, I feel blessed by this pregnancy, especially having experienced bleeding from placenta previa.
But no matter how scary and uncertain it was when I first bled, my Jelly B keep growing and is now 37 weeks and considered full term! Today is huge and special and I truly thank God for letting me make it this far. Not only I thank him for that and for my very supportive family & friends but I also thank him for all the wonderful nurses around me whom I now considered my friends. I have come to know them in a more personal level as they would talk to me about their lives outside of work.
Earlier this afternoon, these nurses gave me a little surprise. They all came in my room, singing and dancing & basically just celebrating my 37th week! They brought in a lemon cupcake and handmade card that will definitely go in Jelly B’s baby book. It was so humbling to see how much they care and how happy they are that my baby is now full term.
One more week (if I don’t go into labor before then) and we’ll get to meet our precious baby. I really can’t wait to hold Small Fry #2 in my arms…
