More Afraid of That Than Delivering

Today I have a prenatal visit with a midwife. I'm hoping to get a little more clarification on my actual due date. At my last appointment, I was measuring at 32 weeks when I thought I was only 28 weeks. They didn't change my due date yet just because it was an external measurement, and not as accurate as other methods they had been using. Still, it makes me want to be prepared for our baby girl's arrival, even earlier than I had anticipated!

I am so thankful that my husband has been able to come to every prenatal appointment with me. This pregnancy is a journey for him, as well. I feel so much love for both him and our baby girl. I really can't wait to see us all together, as a family!

Since the weather is getting snowier and snowier here, I am also glad that he is going to the appointment with me so he can follow me home afterward. Yesterday, on my way home from work, I was seconds away from being involved in an accident that happened in front of me on the highway. Driving in these snowy icy conditions, while being nearly 8 months pregnant, is extremely terrifying. I can honestly say, I am more afraid of getting into an accident with my baby girl than actually delivering my baby girl. Each day of travel, since this snow and ice has arrived, has been a struggle. I pray daily before and during my commute. I am trying to keep my anxiety level as low as I can, but after seeing that accident happen yesterday, it's on high alert.

Maybe it has to do with my anxiety level lately, or it has to do with my hormones, but I decided to cave in and order some food for lunch with my coworker. I brought in a salad, but I'll save that for tomorrow. Today, I had a Chicken Cordon Bleu Wrap with a side of fries!

Where are you at, and how is the snow in your area?
What's on your plate for lunch or dinner?
