Reflections of Motherhood
I just came across this video today, and think its just beautiful, the varied faces of motherhood and what they would tell a younger version of themselves. What would I tell myself? If I could go back to the scary time while pregnant? What would I tell others facing the same journey?
The one and only place I could find any support for a cystic hygroma pregnancy was on the website, http://www.benotafraid.net/ , now there are alot more places on the web I think due to the increase in higher nuchal fold measurements being discovered due to earlier in-utero tests but 3 years ago this was the only website I could find. It also just happens to be part of the chorus of one of my favorite hymns
"Be not afraid,
I go before you always
come follow me,
and I shall give you rest"
These words were constantly on my mind while i was pregnant and gave me great comfort. And now they ring so true, although the journey is not what i would have chosen for myself, its way less scary now, than it was way back then, and Im so very grateful for everything it has taught me.
