Pregnant after a Loss

I have not seen this day before!

I'm the most PG I've ever been! 8w1d today. Big Smile

This song is what I'm singing - "I have not seen this day before" by The Innocence Mission

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q2s9LAtKPDg

The singer, Karen Peris, suffered a number of miscarriages and many of their songs from this time (late 90s early 00s) are about dealing with loss and grief and the hope of becoming a parent. I've loved this group since I was in high school and they had the radio hit, "Bright as Yellow" - and didn't fully realize all meaning of their lyrics until I too had unfortunately learned the language of pregnancy loss.

Today is a happy day!

Beta 9dp5dt = 181, 11dp5dt = 427. 1st u/s showed a healthy heartbeat! EDD 2/16/14

After 4 years of hoping and heartbreak, our sweet little bean was born on 2/19/14
We are so in love with her.
