Over the Hump

Yesterday was the 24w5d mark. It was surprisingly more peaceful than I had anticipated. Of course, it brought back vivid & painful memories of Christmas day. I know it affected Glenn, too. That night, in the middle of the night, he reached over and pulled me close. The next morning, I commented on how nice that was & he said, “I was trying to check on the baby. I was worried. I just had so many memories come back.”

I thought that passing that point would help me relax, but not so far. Perhaps with time, as we get closer, I’ll be able to breathe and trust that this pregnancy will really result in a healthy, living baby. I guess time will tell.

I had my “reassurance” ultrasound today. My cervix measured 3.5cm (which they said was good). The baby was head down with its back to my front again, so we didn’t get any pictures. They also didn’t measure, but everything looks good. My next ultrasound is on 9/19. I’ll also see Dr. G that day and have the Gestational Diabetes test that day.

Yesterday was difficult to be sure, but I’m so thankful that we are over the hump and that so far, things look good!

Just wanted to stop in and say I still think about you and you guys are constantly in my prayers!

I almost started crying when I read what your dh had said! I can't imagine how hard it must be reaching that point - I don't know how I'm going to handle it when the time comes - but I have faith that you guys will get your beautiful rainbow baby!!

It's going to be such a beautiful moment!
