I am incredibly thankful for the amazing friends and family I have.

Thank you for the help and support when I was resting, thank you for
helping me unpack when I was unable to help, thank you for bringing
play dates to me, thank you for the phone calls, hours of texting and
emails to keep me company, giving me suggestions on new message boards,
offers of help with all things baby and just amazing support and
excitment for bringing a new baby into the world. The excitement and
support is what I needed most.

A pregnancy after loss is so hard in so many ways. It is emotional,
difficult, worrisome, exciting and an adventure. You question yourself,
your body and what the opinions of others will be and how you will
handle them.

It is incredibly heart warming to have so many people there when it matters most and I am so grateful to you for that.

Thank You

Oh What Joys 2009 Can Bring

2009 is filled with lots of exciting updates for our family!

My new years resolutions are going great! I haven't had a problem with weight gain at all, it could be because by the time I set my new year's resolutions I was already 1 day or so pregnant! It's amazing what something as small as a grape does to your appetite!

This pregnancy is bringing a lot of emotions, everything from being excited, fearful, happy, nervous, sad, torn, thrilled and on and on and on.

My due date is September 30 (7 days after Matthew's). I will more than likely have a cesarean mid September (as long as I make it full term, fingers, toes, legs and eyes all crossed).

I'm already on restricted activity because of some bleeding, but everything else looks good. We saw the heart beat on Thursday at 125 bpm and the baby is measuring right on track!

We're also almost all the way into our new house! We're excited to have people over, especially this summer since the pool is gorgeous! And tempting!

We hope 2009 brings you much happiness!!
