Trying to keep it together

Tuesday, December 16, 2008



We tried to get the baby uncertainty off of our mind on Sunday by heading out to West Geauga to buy our Christmas tree. It is officially up in the great room but doesn't have a single ornament on it just yet. We plan on decorating it tonight so I will post pictures of our beautifully decorated tree. On the baby front, no news is good news I guess for now. I am still feeling very pregnant and am not spotting at all which is great. Spotting was the kiss of death with the last baby. I am trying to hold it together but I have had several meltdowns since everything is so up in the air. I am trying to stay as positive as the doctor was but we have been here before and know that a heartbeat doesn't mean much, especially with our babies. Please keep praying that I make it sanely through the week.

  8. Karen, sorry I couldn't write on your post yesterday. I know how scared you are and you are in my prayers everyday. I hope the time flies by this week and ultrasound day is here before you know it. You have every reason to be hopeful, but it is so hard to not be nervous during the first trimester. Please take care, we're all routing for your little one!!

  10. So sucks that a previous miscarriage can completely plague future pregnancies with the anxiety that history is going to repeat itself. Instead of being able to focus on the joy of the pregnancy itself we are constantly, and I mean constantly worried, every minute, every second that this pregnancy will end up just like the last. I feel for you because we have walked a mile in the others shoes. I pray this works out for you and that all the stress and anxiety you've experienced thus far will melt away soon!
