A LITTLE baby anxiety.

First off.....since I've entered into this blog world I have become obsessed with crafts, especially wreaths. One of my favorite bloggers:

is having a giveaway to celebrate 500 Facebook followers.

She made this amazing wreath that she's going to make for the winner of the giveaway. 

Isn't it precious?!?!?! I've been wanting to attempt a ribbon wreath seeing how they are everywhere in the blog world, but getting a chance to win one like this??? YES PLEASE! Go to She's Kinda Crafty to enter for a chance to win this precious wreath too. 

Also....My friend, Megan at In This Wonderful Life is hosting a giveaway as well for SheSheMade. SUPER SUPER CUTE STUFF! 
I stole this from Megan: as seen here

Um, YES PLEASE! I totally think Baby Girl needs something from here. Hopefully this entry for the $50 store credit will help me get a little extra! :)Click the lind above and head over to Megan's blog to enter to win! SO MUCH CUTE STUFF! I'm loving the Watermelon gown in the center and the bloomers with the bows. Oh I'm in so much trouble. :)

So I know.....4 posts in one week. WHAT?!?! I feel like I've been slacking, so I'm catching up. :) 

I've had a little anxiety the last couple of weeks, and doing what I do best I held it in until it exploded all over my poor hubby. HA. I know it's normal to have baby anxiety, but I think I've been trying to pretend I'm not really pregnant and I'm not any different than I have been (besides this growing basketball in my belly) it hit me pretty hard. 

I had a nursing friend of mine lose her sweet baby girl last week, and it broke my heart for her, her hubby, and the rest of her family. It hit way too close to home. I've been praying for Baby Molly and her loved ones like crazy, but it got me thinking about our sweet baby girl. I know God always has a plan, but it doesn't mean Tom & I wouldn't be devastated if something happened to her. As I've mentioned before, we already love her so much it's unreal.

I've also been following a very special little girl, Lucy. Lucy's Mom, Kate, has been so candid about their experience with such a life changing experience. She is so spiritual and trusting in The Lord it makes my heart swell with every entry. Go check out 2 Kids, a Mini Van, and a Mortgage to read about how courageous this amazing family is. 

My favorite blessing this week, however, is someone I look up to so much. Megan (yes the same one as mentioned above!), at In this Wonderful Life, just received, not one, but TWO blessings. I couldn't be happier for anyone. She is a precious friend of mine  from high school and he has been through so much and remained so open with all of us fellow bloggers who fell in love with her family and sweet baby Cohen. Go check out her amazing news. 

Any who, after all of that word vomit.....My point is, I had mild breakdown after a week of receiving some very sad and some so happy news. It just made me realize that I had no control of any of this LIFE  business. God blessed us with this surprise baby girl and he could take her away at anytime. I know God wouldn't let anything happen to Tom or I that He didn't think we could handle....and we do often say that to each other. I know I have to trust in Him. It just took me having a close call at work, a sobbing breakdown, a wonderful pep talk from that sweet Honey of mine, and a break from the blog world for a few days to feel a little better about all this anxiety. :) 

I work on an infectious disease, telemetry, medical surgical unit. In layman's terms....a mixing pot of just about everything. However being on an infectious disease floor means that a lot of my patients are on some sort isolation. Most I can dress up in a gown, gloves, &/or mask and be ok. There are a select few patients that I have to avoid just to be extra safe. One of these being Shingles.

 So.....of course, to make a long story short(er) ha, I was unknowingly exposed several times to this particular patient. Putting it mildly...I um....panicked! I had had the chicken pox when I was little, but you still have to avoid them when you are pregnant.  My doctor wanted me to come in and get some labs drawn just to be on the safe side. Today I got the results! EVERYTHING WAS FINE! YAYYYYYYYY! That was definitely a huge relief. 

So I'm trying to be better about saying..."Ok I'm 7 months pregnant. Is this really a good idea?" I've never been one to be lazy at work, and I don't want it to come across that it's hard for me to say "No, I can't do that. It's not a safe idea," but I'm going to try. I got cancelled tonight for 12 hours, so that was a nice surprise. This will be a good easy two day work week.   Now I'm going to attempt to try my hand at sewing...again. That will be another post, because it is quite amusing!!! HA 

Have a BLESSED week.
Lots of love,
The Boffs
