Thanksgiving Day, 15dpo – Thankful.

November 23, 2006 at 11:07 pm Leave a comment

Today was a day about giving thanks.
I did not pee on sticks and I did not obsess betas.
I just spent the day being at peace and thankful for where I’m at today.

We made a turkey and we watched the parade and we celebrated Thanksgiving.

We went out to a Thanksgiving celebration at night and a few things concerned me, like the fact that I cramped a lot. Also I did get up to dance a few times and was concerned about my heart-rate going up higher than it should. But overall, I was OK – I can’t spend every second paranoid. I just had to leave it all in God’s hands and just thank Him that today I’m exactly where I had hoped to be 2 months ago.

I don’t know what tomorrow brings, but I know where I came from yesterday. I know how bitter and horrible and depressing those last months had been. I may not have had the perfect journey or lost all the weight I had wanted (I’m about 7lbs HEAVIER than I was the last time around, in spite of having consoled myself that I will lose weight after my m/c and be at a healthier range), and my BFP may not have yet sunk in as much as I thought it would. And yet I could not ask for more this Thanksgiving, and I am just thankful that I am here. I realize that the cup is still… MORE than half full, and I will only keep looking up to everything positive. And be thankful for every minute.

Happy Thanksgiving!
