5w6d - 6 days to go

Tomorrow, I will "officially" hit 6 weeks. As "official" as we can calculate before our first ultrasound, that is. But, the daily countdown to the ultrasound is underway and we have just 6 days to go until we get to see the first photo of our little Peanut. I can't beleive I am typing that right now.

I am overjoyed, over the moon and not overly anxious. I have to trust that things are progressing as they should, as everything seems to be. I have no complaints, I have been sleeping well, still able to eat (despite being occasionally frustrated or unsure of what exactly it is that I want and very occasionally queasy) and feel good physically. I am trying to be happy, to enjoy the present and leave those worries of the future out there for a bit longer. Yes, there are a lot of things to worry about, but there is no sense in thinking about them right now. I just need to make it 6 more days before we can truly relax a bit and start our planning.  6 days. 144 hours.

Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be critical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be careful. Strive to be happy.
