If Things Go Wrong, Don't Go With Them

I don't exactly know who said that or when, but I'm inclined to adopt their philosophy. Tonight I am worrying two grand worries & though I know this is a useless feat they are creeping around my mind & begging for attention. Solution? Send them out into the blogosphere & air them out a little.

01. I worry that my iron/hemoglobin situation will not improve & I won't be able to have the home birth that I so dearly want.
The last time that my blood was taken my hemoglobin was sitting at a rather unfourtunate 98 (when it ought to be between the 115-160ish mark). The cutoff for having a home birth is a 'globin count of at least 100 so please cross your fingers that the insane amount of liquid iron goop that I've been taking will be enough to pop it up a notch. In a later post I will talk more in depth about my desire for a home birth, but not tonight, ladies & gents.

02. I worry that I won't be able to get everything moved to the new apartment on the 29th & 30th because it looks as though the boy isn't able to get those days off work.
Originally we were going to be moving on the 24th & 25th, but due to a few (pain in the ass) circumstances we've had to push the date back a few days. Unfourtunately the boy had already asked for the earlier dates off & it looks as though his boss made plans to leave town at the end of the month and the boy is the only other employee. Moving an entire apartment myself when I'm eight months pregnant is not only unlikely, IT'S NOT HAPPENING. I know that I have at least one person who can help (and she drives, thank goodness) so I'm not completely destitute -- just panicked.

Phew. It always feels better to get it out of my head like that.

I know that it will all work out, as it always does. I'm also glad that there is always that little voice in the back of my head reassuring me of this.

What are you worrying about today? What are you going to do about it? What keeps you positive?

Crossing my fingers for you on both situations... I know what it is to desire things to go a certain way only to have it all fall to pieces around me.

Oh I hope that things come together for a peaceful and easy move. I know how hard it is to move at that stage, and I wish you all the best. As for the hemoglobin: I had the very same issue (though I wasn't hoping for a home birth) with my first pregnancy, but it rallied and ended up above 100 by the end. Not that what happened to me will necessarily happen to you, but it's nice to know that it can happen, at least. Good luck!
