Today is my first official Angelversary...one year ago today I was sitting at work and started to bleed profusely...it didn't take me long to realize what was happening (I was told on 28 Mar 08 that my hCG was dropping and there was no h/b)...since that day I have been a different person...both as a woman and a mother...losing a baby teaches you so many things...what pain and loss truly feels like...and also how to love the children you do have that much more...I truly believe that God has a plan for me and in that plan he introduced me to JM just a month prior to my first loss...since then I have made soooo many wonderful friends and really do love and cherish each and every one of you...
On to a happier note...I had my normal every 4 week check up today...I'm 21w5d...the tech was able to pick her h/b up immediately with the doppler...Kennedy let it register at 150 bpm and then squirmed away...this little girl does NOT like being messed with... ...Dr Baacke went over my u/s results with me and said everything looks great and she is very confident we have nothing to worry about...she measured my uterus and it was a little over 22cm...she said that its pretty normal to measure just a little bit ahead as this isn't my first ball game...my weight has def caught up...I've gained the 8lbs I lost back and then another 9 on top of that I'm reallllly gonna have to start watching what I'm eating (how many times do we say THAT before eating a big bowl of ice cream?!)
And to the big news...Dustin (DH) was finally able to feel her kick last night!! We were laying in bed and I was reading while he e-filed our taxes (DH is finance in the USAF so he handles all money issues...yes...its wonderful!) and Kennedy was moving all around...so I made him take a break and put his hand on my belly...after a few minutes of squirming she finally got tired of being pushed on and gave DH a big ol kick...it was great...it was like an instant sparkle was in his eyes...it just helps it become so much more real when they can feel the baby moving...for the next 20 mins all he talked about was HIS baby girl, and HIS princess, and HIS daddy's girl...
Alrighty...now that I've written a book...I hope you all have a great day...and remember... I LOVE YOU ALL!!!
Oh Danielle...I'll say a special little prayer for you and your angel today! And heck, while I'm at it I'll throw in some prayers for your whole family! It's true. A loss changes our lives forever. It gave me a sense of fear that steals the innocence out of pregnancy. And, it gave me such an appreciation for each and every blessing I have, including my dh and my children. Just know that I'll be thinking about you today!
What a wonderful appt! You must be feeling better and better about this PG, your trip to Disney, and your big move! So many wonderful things going on for you...and little Miss Kennedy is such a wonderful addition! The fact that she let her presence be known with her kick is awesome. I can't wait until Pete can feel this little munchkin. I think you're right. It makes it more "real" when others can feel the baby move. For us moms, we live the PG everyday. It's real through m/s, cramps, the fear of spotting, the heartburn, the doctor appts, the boards on JM , the tight clothes, the cravings, and the dreams. But, for anyone on the outside, not only do we look completely crazy, but it isn't as real. I love the fact that Dustin has taken complete ownership...you did fill him in on the fact that he is more than welcome to do the whole labor and delivery thing, right?!?!?!
Well, I think I've written as much as you. Sorry...I'm rambling. Me? Never... You take care today. We'll be thinking of you. JM is just as lucky to have you as you feel to have JM.
HUGS Danielle i'll be thinking of you today...Angelversaries are so tough
I'm really happy to hear your appt went so well (again) and that DH got to feel little Miss Kennedy kick!!! How exciting that must be! And she's just prepping Dad for all the cute shoes she'll be demanding once she's born
Remembered Forever with Love

HUgs and prayers for you today.
I can't believe how far along you are already! time is flying past for me lately. that is so sweet about Dustin feeling Kennedy kick. daddies and their daughter's are the sweetest thing, in my opinion. sometimes i just melt when i see Justin with Thea - i cna't wait to hear more daddy's girl moments from you!
