Say hello to Baby #2!
Alive healthy and strong. Sorry for the lousy pictures, our scanner is in storage, and so you just have to deal with the snaps I took with my camera of them. But still if you can see what I see, isn't it so darling? Do you see the hand stubs and feet? Makes it all real, and not just the flu you know?
Such a relief for us. I'll admit I was pretty worried.
The good news: The babies heart rate was 182, and right on track due date wise (8 weeks, 2 days)
My bleeding is completely healed now. It was nowhere in the ultrasound. The ultra sound tech was absolutely awesome. I remember her from Axel's too, she is soo great. She gets excited and showed us all these cool things, like the blood going from my body to his through the chord. It was amazing.
The bad news: My "stay-cation" has now come to an end. :( I will no longer have an excuse to have everyone do everything for me. Although it was hard at first, I really started to enjoy my time off and all the extra help I received around the house, and the fact that I could just be like , nope sorry I am off duty, Drs. orders :) But it is nice to have my abilities back, I have felt somewhat useless. I am a doer, I like to go and do, and while I have tried to say things like there is NOTHING more important than sitting here making sure this baby stays put, it didn't make it easy.
I honestly don't think I would have healed or recovered had I not gotten so much help, prayers and positive vibes. So thank you to you all for all your love and support, kind words of advice, and help. We are so blessed to have so many people that love and take care of us. They say it takes a village to raise a child, and in this case that is very true. :)
This baby has definitely tested my faith and made me realize what is important in my life right now. I am not saying it has been easy, probably one of the most exhausting and hard two weeks (has it really only been two weeks?) of my life. I am glad we are all better now, just in time for HALLOWEEN!
