But I don't want to go through this pregnancy with those thoughts in my head. I don't think this is being naive, or ignorant, or "throwing caution to the wind". I think this is just a choice one makes, to put the fear away and find some peace in the present.
So instead I choose to go through it with joy and gratefulness, because if I didn't, I think I might regret it.
And today was one of those days where I chose joy. We painted the nursery and it looks fantastic! (Click here for before)
I choose joy. I choose to believe that this is going to happen. Because if I don't, I let the fear win.
