Hi ladies...I'm sorry I've been MIA. This pregnancy has been kicking my butt both physically and mentally.
I guess since I'm a m/c survivor, its normal to have this pending sense of doom, but it still sucks to be so worried all the time. I've been pretty sick the last couple of weeks with really bad heartburn, bad headaches, and just a funky stomach all around.

I was having some cramping today that was bad enough that I didn't go in to work. I called my midwife and she wanted to see me. Come to find out, I've lost 6 pounds in about 2 weeks - eek! She did an internal and said everything looked great...but just to be safe, let's do an u/s! I was completely shocked and all of a sudden completely nervous. I was all by myself - and just kept praying on the u/s table that God was with me.

I'm pleased to report that Peanut is doing great and I got to see his/her heartbeat!!! It was about 160 bpm. I can't put into words how extremely relieved I am. She said that the cramping is normal and I was just lucky to have no symptoms with Bailey.

So...hopefully if work calms down a bit, I'll be able to be on JM more.

Oh...here's the u/s pic

(edited for spelling)
