I took a leap of faith the day before my first beta.
I thought about the fact that I’d be wearing the exact same maternity clothes as I did with Matthew since I’d be due the same day, so I inventoried in my mind what I would need. I would need short-sleeved t-shirts. It’s fall right now – surely G.ap Maternity would have those types of shirts on a steep discount, right? (This is how I talk to myself in my head to justify shopping.)
I wondered if I could jinx things by going to check out their sales, or if I should wait.
I decided that was ridiculous – you can’t jinx a pregnancy.
I went. I bought 3 long-sleeved shirts and 3 short-sleeved ones (for $7-$9 each!).
And I bought these:
I mean – they were $6 each – what was I supposed to do? I thought about how holiday-specific they were and that if this pregnancy was a bust, that these would be a completely useless purchase. I then figured, if this pregnancy is a bust, I’ll just mail them on over to Belle!
I got my second beta today and it doubled in 39.5 hours. We are looking good so far and I’m eerily calm about this pregnancy. My ultrasound is scheduled within the next few weeks.
I should take leaps of faith more often.
