I'm so nervous, girls. So very nervous. This coming Wed., Oct. 21/09, is the big 18w5d u/s. As you all know, last year in July 2008, it was the big u/s that we first got the horrible news that Katrina's ventricles in her brain were slightly enlarged. We lived off hope and prayers for the next few weeks that her ventricles wouldn't enlarge anymore, but unfortunately they went from 12mm up to 26mm at the time she became an Angel. There was SO much pressure on her brain, I don't even want to think about how much pain she was probably in

Before the big u/s with Katrina, we had absolutely NO idea anything would be so horribly wrong with her. We were just so happy to be pregnant and were looking forward to December 2008 to bring home our first baby.

Now I'm at the stage in this pregnancy with Sweet Pea and I have absolutely NO idea what the outcome is going to be. I know the exact same thing to happen again (Ventriculomegaly) is very, very rare and it wasn't genetic (thank God), so chances of that exact thing happening again is not common. But now I'm absolutely beyond terrified that what if they find something else wrong? I know this sounds horrible, but I honestly don't think I could continue to live if we lost another baby. I really don't. I try to just stay positive and try not to think about horrible things, but they're always in the back of my mind...those scary "what ifs".

Please keep Sweet Pea, Jon, and me in your thoughts and prayers that our Sweet Pea is healthy and alive and that everything goes well at our ultrasound and that we can bring our beautiful baby home with us in March 2010 - healthy and alive!!!

Thanks girls.

Thanks Claire

Obviously our top priority is to make sure Sweet Pea is healthy, but yea, we'd like to know the sex...if baby decides to show us!

Oh man, it's always so scary to get an ultrasound after you've had a bad one. I will definitely be praying for you.

Will start praying right now. Keep some virtual hugs from all of us with you on Wednesday when you guys go to the ultrasound: one for you, one for Jon, and one for Sweet Pea


Thank you to Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggie!

I'm Barb, Mom to Angel on Earth Julia Rose (7*22*08), her twin brother Angel in Heaven Noah (7*22*08), and rainbow baby Sydney Noelle (12*4*09).

*a special 'thank you' to all the blinkie creators for their talents*
