Pregnant after a Loss

AW: Halfway Baked!

I can't believe I'm halfway there. I know it's all PGAL-Brain-Induced, but there were a few moments there where I was certain this pregnancy would end like the last one. I still haven't gotten that great burst of 2nd tri energy I was promised, but I definitely feel better than I did in 1st tri, and I'm getting a lot more done. A few days ago I was having a moment where I felt very uncertain about everything, and was having a hard time visualizing myself giving birth and holding this little girl. As if on cue to tell me to calm myself, she started some pretty wild acrobatics in there, so much so that I was able to feel her movement from the outside. Now whenever she shifts or kicks, I have to smile. 

So excited to be on this adventure, and I hope the next 20 weeks zip by uneventfully! Thank you ladies for being so wonderful.

    We lost our first (EDD 07/23/12) after finding out at 12 weeks there was no longer a heartbeat. Our rainbow was born 05/22/13 and was worth all we went through.

  • Half Baked!!!  Time to celebrate for sure!
