Today is my angel's EDD. We don't know if it was a boy or a girl. My son called the baby "Baby Rufus" (He was so excited and thought it was funny.) We lost our little one and there isn't a day I don't think about my little baby. I know my mom is holding him/her in heaven. I'm sure she's taking great care of Baby Rufus. I wish I could have held my baby. I miss our angel every day. Our baby will forever be in our hearts.

Today is also my big U/S. I can't believe I've made it 20 weeks. It seems surreal to think that I should be holding a new baby, but, instead I'm still PG. I also feel so blessed that I am facing my angel's EDD with the knowledge that I AM pregnant and everything seems to be going well so far.

Please send a few prayers. I just want to know that this baby (DS has named this one "Baby Brutus") is healthy and doing well. I don't care if it's a boy or a girl (I'm not finding out until delivery, but DH is ) I just want a little more reassurance that everything is fine.

Thanks for letting me vent. Seriously, I don't know what I'd do without you all. PAL would be so scary without you awesome mommies to lean on. You guys are the best. I'll update when I can.

I will be thinking of you and both your little ones today. I know how hard it is to have a milestone on an EDD. My big ultrasound was also on my EDD. I thought it was going to be impossible to enjoy seeing my little one, but it really helped cheer me up. Wishing you the best of luck today.

Lots of Hugs. I am very sorry for your loss. Baby Rufus is such a cute name, and your angel is with you today and always. All you have to do it look at your dh and look at yourself in the mirror, and you can see your little angel. Your baby is still a part of you, and is never far away.

Good luck with your u/s today. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. KUP on how it goes, and I hope you share pics!!

Kelty,

The EDD of an angel is a rough day. I hope the u/s for baby Brutus makes it a little easier for you. (I hope your DH is good at keeping secrets -- I don't know how he can know the gender and not share it with you or other people... that's one BIG secret).

[IMG][/IMG]I'm back and everything went great. I had a rough time this AM, but, after seeing our little one wiggling all over the place, I know that miracles really do happen! I'll try to download the picture as soon as I can. It was an amazing u/s. We got to see bloodflow, the heartbeat (150/min), all of the major organs, and then came the 3D/4D. Man, I am sooo in awe of that machine. It was totally cool!
Everything is going well and I'm starting to get excited (still cautious, but excited just the same). Now I just can't wait until I can hold this little one!

I know that our angel is watching over us. And I'm thrilled everything is going well. But, this day is still bittersweet. I wish I could be holding BOTH babies (I know, selfish mom.) Thanks for all your support everyone!

I'm sorry it was a bittersweet day, pretty soon you will be holding this little one in your arms. We are all here for you. Great picture, I know isn't awesome the technology that they have. I had an u/s about a week or two before Alex was born, the Dr. printed out a picture of him face and I'm telling you he looked exactly as the u/s picture.

Congratulations Kelty! How cool that you got to see it all in 3d/4d. I think you're absolutely right about your little one looking down on you today. Here's to a smooth and healthy second half of your pregnancy!

Thanks everyone! I'm starting to let myself get cautiously excited. I am popping popcorn tonight and watching the ultrasound video! What a social life I lead, huh?!?!?!

Your social life sounds a lot like mine, without the popcorn and the u/s video
