Relief (pregnancy mentioned)

I had my ultrasound today.  I always get anxious beforehand.  After the awful ultrasound with Cora, though, I don’t really blame myself. My main concern, though, was cord placement.  Cora’s was obviously around the neck, and they didn’t tell me, and I really had no clue what I was looking at. So I was anxious…

All sorts of anxiety. (pregnancy mentioned)

The times I had ultrasounds with Cora I was just excited beforehand.  There was no real worry.  There was vague worry about things I’d heard from others about missed miscarriages and things like that.  But not to the point where I was terrified.  I was mostly just hugely excited.  Until that last ultrasound anyway.  I…

A Little Wave

I’ve taken a short hiatus from blogging for the last couple of weeks. After my initial first amazing scan I started getting some spotting and feared the worst. I just went into myself and tried to hide from the world. I was terrified as I went for my follow-up scan last week and I wasn’t…

Two very emotional days

The last two weeks have been kind of a blur. In fact, everything since I got my BFP has been a blur. I think I’ve been living in a kind of bubble. I’ve been so scared of things going wrong again that I’ve been shutting myself away from the things and people I would usually…

Breathtaking

After the longest 2 weeks of my life, filled with a lot of worry, stress, paranoia, many tears, and living in a bubble just trying to get to today: The most beautiful, tiny, flickering heartbeat I have ever seen in my life. I have never, ever felt so thankful before.
