So, this arrived in the mail yesterday!
I ordered it from etsy, and am super excited to have this as my necklace for Lyra this coming year. This artist customized it specifically with the Lyra constellation, and I'm just thrilled to start wearing it!
And it was perfect timing as today is my birthday. I don't remember much of my birthday last year...everything was still really foggy and we were just so sad. It was hard to feel celebratory over a birthday when our daughter died less than a month earlier. I think we were still moving to this apartment, so we probably packed and moved a bunch of stuff. And L surprised me with a really nice cardigan. I guess I do remember a little bit.
Thursday is Simon's heart echo and brain scan. If you could, send a good vibe or prayer that there is nothing to be concerned about. I'm trying not to worry since we don't have full information yet. Once we have something more solid, either with the echo/scan, or when he's born, then we can know more about whether to worry or not. (Easier said than done...)
I'm still having contractions throughout the day, but not painful ones, so I'm not expecting him to make an entrance as of yet. I don't know the whole natural labor thing, as I was induced with Lyra. L is hoping he comes within the next 8 days though, so his birthdate can be a palindrome...I should have expected that marrying a math/computer science guy :)
Wishing you all some peaceful moments this week.
